So one of the things I was doing when I was finishing up my site update just now was cleaning up the links page and I had completely forgotten about this Something Awful article making fun of TMBG. A lot of it is just generic “OH HEY THOSE GUYS ARE SURE NERDS HAHA” stuff but there is some really quality stuff in there. I think my favourite bit is “The album’s peak of dorkiness is ‘They’ll Need a Crane,’ which is such a clumsy and hackneyed take on relationships that one can only imagine that it’s nothing more than Linnell’s baseless speculations on what being with a girl would be like.” Also, “John Linnell: The Creepy One” is how I am going to start captioning alllllllllll my pictures. Seriously.
"Sucker," the leadoff track from the only album by Lincoln, a very cool band that Miller and Weinkauf were in pre-TMBG.
Good TMBG mail haul! The magazine doesn’t actually have an article about them for some reason but I just wanted the picture on the cover to put up on my wall. The Lincoln comic is REALLY COOL—it has illustrations for every song on the album and is really well-done. It came with a cute TMBG button too! You can get one here.
Watching the “They’ll Need a Crane” video when you’re actually trying to accomplish things besides being completely overwhelmed by how insanely sexy John Linnell is is a really bad idea
