I remember getting the buttons in my great-grandmother's accordion stuck when I was 8. I was scared shitless. Luckily, it's real easy to fix: just push them in and angle them towards the hole.
I actually have a video of it, and what John did was put it down on the ground and gently slap it and whenever I watch it I think he looks like a 3-year-old girl, haha. Eventually someone in the crowd lends him a pocketknife which he uses to pull it out.
Did Ant rip the entire tape? Can we, The Internet, have it? I personally have a mighty need to master time organization.
He has not yet, but I will hassle him about it. I am also quite eager to hear it.

Oh, is that the idea? Well, making a (dumb) joke at the expense of people probably being able to find what you’re selling doesn’t seem like a very good move.

Haha yeh, I like that his reasoning isn’t like “Oh as a fellow musician I’d love to talk to him about the creative process” or something, it’s just, “We could talk about coffee!”
Sophisticated head-bobbing music
Quinn, this is the BEST gif you have made to date - love it!!
Awww thank you! I try. “#JL is a complete dork” was a very good tag for you to use, and the possibilities for that series are endless, so I think I’ll have many gifs to make for awhile.

Aww, I’m so sad that I can’t give Flans credit for the phrase cos it really is great, but I’m sure that’s something he does ALL THE TIME, so.

I was only talking about these two very specific things in these two songs. If I were opposed to “quirks in writing” in general I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be a TMBG fan. That’s the reason these two things are notable to me, because they’re like the only ones that get to me out of pretty much any of their songs.
zollgax said: disco naps are the most american of all naps, obviously
Haha ok. I guess the thing that confuses me is that “loud music and bright lights” and “napping” seem ever-so-slightly incompatible in my mind. I do love the sound of the phrase, though.
