The healing doesn't stop the feeling.

"In the summer of 1993 WFMU DJ Nick Hill decided to broadcast his usual "Music Faucet" program live from his own apartment in Williamsburgh, Brooklyn. By a pleasant coincidence, about half of the guests on his show were also living upstairs from him or somewhere nearby. Nick and most of the performers were out on Nick’s deck, but microphones were also run up into Brian Dewan’s studio and also into the bathroom Brian shared with Mr. Linnell, which is where John and John performed this instrumental. John F. played guitar next to the sink, and John L played bass saxophone within the reverberant bathtub."

I like that when I can’t remember for sure how to spell the word “epaulettes” my immediate idea for a solution is not to, you know, try to find it in the dictionary, but just to look up the lyrics for “Certain People I Could Name” on the wiki.

This is from circa Long Tall Weekend. His hair went through a semi-uninteresting period in the mid-90’s but got decent again later on, although it’s still a tad short for my liking.

"from the über-rare Edisongs LP released by WFMU in 1991 comes the exclusive original, extended version of The Edison Museum, by John Linnell (instruments) and Nick Hill (vox), written by Linnell and Brian Dewan"

  • Turbogab: on earth my nina smells like corn chips
  • TypewrittenGirl: um?
  • Turbogab: it does
  • TypewrittenGirl: what does that even mean
  • Turbogab: it fills my nose with the scent of corn chips
  • TypewrittenGirl: IT'S A SONG
  • Turbogab: a corn chip smelling song
Ant uploaded snazzy new versions of the Long Tall Weekend vignettes to the wiki. This one, for “They Got Lost,” is my favourite.

"Certain People I Could Name," live 1999-10-23. SO FAST WHAT. SO FUCKING AWESOME.

givemesomethinganything:

theme song for December. particularly the dreaded twelfth of December.

OH HEY MY BIRTHDAY’S IN DECEMBER TOO. Also, I am quite amused by “Older” at the kids’ shows etc. “LET’S INSTILL THE FEAR OF MORTALITY IN THOSE KIDS EARLY.”

They Might Be Giants - Certain People I Could Name

Favorite TMBG song at the moment.

OMGGGGGGGG I was listening to this on the plane today for like 2 hours. Count the arms, the legs and heads and then divide by five.
