why spiritualized spirit-shoe-sucks.

faked by Thursday, September 25th, 2003

here is the cover of the new spiritualized album, amazing grace.

and here is spoon’s kill the moonlight, which often featured a single arm in print ads.

and here is lamprey album by gone-but-not-forgotten bettie serveert (i got this on cassette at wall’s! i think steve chrestman broke it).

and does anyone really care what they sound like anymore? i’m amazed they’re even still a band and haven’t become a marketing “concept,” like radiohead or coca-cola.

to sum up: hack music, hack album title, hack album art.

last nite all l33t h@xX0rz rocked at at martin’s for matt suggs; songs: ohia (thankfully changing to magnolia electric company as of, i guess, nowish); the apes; and enon. total lie ad in the paper said “doors open at eight!!”, like the sonsofbitches ever close. problem being with going early is that all the creepy grown-up alcoholhics are still there.

just can’t get enough?

last nite me & jp! & la federala & adam went to bonsai for adam’s twenty-sixth. happy birthday, adam! he wanted to see underworld but it’s not out yet, and i told him that he’d be just as good off if he hung up a poster of blade II and put on an episode of alias and spun around with his arms out until he got dizzy and fell down.

As the Clarion-Ledger is reporting today:

[T]he entire state of Mississippi’s general fund is “only” $3.6 billion [compared to the $87 billion bush says is needed to sustain our “war” in Iraq].

If given to Mississippi, no citizen would have to pay a dime of state income, sales, tobacco, alcohol, gasoline or other state tax to fund state government at all for 24 years.


two years later, where are we?

Welcome to America in 2003. For all the freedoms we’ve sacrificed, are we safer than the america attacked nearly two years ago?

Absolutely not. When a federal judge allowed about seventy plaintiffs to proceed in a suit against airlines, airplane makers, and the Ports Authority of New York and New Jersey today, he expressly acknowledged the plaintiffs’ argument that planes should be made so terrorists, or other unruly passengers, can’t break into the cabin. Why is this a novel idea?

no rest for the wixxed.

hear that? it’s my liver beating. i’ll write more fully later, but leave one exchange to illustrate my point:

roy III: oh, i wouldn’t walk there, if i were you.

gorjus: outside my hotel room? why not?

roy III: that’s where lucas was peeing, you know.

gorjus: on the fucking doorstep? what the fuck, no, i didn’t know!!

roy III: well, you were vomiting right beside him. i figured you would have noticed.
