I don't know why, but this blog is slowly starting to turn into a music review, as opposed to a journal. Maybe that's a good thing. I know I'd commit seppuku if I had to read someone's whiney writings. Well, I guess no one has to read this..and I guess no one really does..So it's a win/win?The song above is by Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, off of their album "Before Today". Good song, right? Right. I love how the cover art for the single offends everyone's sensibilities. The art of course being a drawing of a man open-mouthed kissing a dog, drawn by Saimon Chow, from his Summer of Love series. I've always been interested in what offends people, and why it offends them. It's just art, guys. It's just a drawing of a guy kissing a dog. It isn't a drawing of Pope John Paul II getting skull-fucked by the members of Nirvana (Which would be hilarious). My feelings about this song can be summed up by Ultramincubed's youtube comment:
"This song makes me feel like i am having the best beach volleyball match of my life but all of the sudden out of the sand emerges a massive lobster on the opposing team's side. he's so big, and his claws are proportionally large. not only that, he begins trash talking me, calling me "a weak man" and "a pussy." i start getting a bit discouraged, as the lob is blocking a lot of shots with his cheap big-ass claws. the other team catches up, and the whole match comes to down to the last point we win"
I agree sir, I wholeheartedly agree.
