note to self
your kids are listening.
i was singing "gouge away" by the Pixies when i woke up the other day and to satisfy what was swimming in my head i threw it on the stereo, it was a pleasant way to start the day. don't you just love that? it's like calming an itch, a refreshing jolt of needed caffeine...
but little did i know, my 4 year old would be singing "gouge away" all day long. cute little 4 year old in a minnie mouse voice "...gouge away!" i got one of those "nice, Dust" comments from my wife. (she loves me).
your kids are listening and taking notes, so be careful.
here's a link to the song if you're interested:
so, what have you been listening to lately?
for some reason i am really into muted scratchy diminished wailing guitar lately. ler lalonde during frizzle fry is a perfect example. i was a HUGE primus fan back in the day and it's been fun to step down memory lane and revisit old friends.
spegetti western is just lovely to hear.
i've also really been digging Dinosaur Jr. and the Pixies, and songs from Smashing Pumpkins like "zero", the guitar never sounded cooler, and of course good ol' Jimi...how i would've loved to see him live.
