I'm getting old(er), and nothing makes sense anymore.

Andrew WK sounds much stupider than Wesley Willis. At least Willis has years of homelessness and mental illness as an excuse.

Whose 'rules'? The rules of the guy downstairs who just needs a little sleep before he puts in eight underpaid hours to feed his children? He doesn't make the rules anymore. The entertainment industry does.

Nothing is revolutionary about making people listen to loud music when they don't feel like it. Although I believe that was a Maoist torture technique.

...and you smirk, 'lighten up'.

Oh yea, silly me, I forgot it was the ballet and not the opera! Perhaps confusion can be blamed on the fairy?
Guess that bit I heard about him hand drawing all the posters wasn't true either. Damn!

Justin,

there ain't no subtext, there ain't no conspiracy,
its just fuckin' rock and roll. From Little Richard to Iggy to Slade to Suzi Quattro to The Ramones to Motorhead to Andrew WK, its just about headbangin' baby. Right kallisti?

A Comparison, if you will:

Andrew WK lyrics:

When it's time to party we will party hard

You,
You work all night (all night)
And when you work you don't feel all right
And we,
We can't stop feeling all right (all right)
And everything is all right

'Cos we will never listen to your rules (no)
We will never do what others do
(no)
Do what we want and we get it from you
Do what we like and we like what we do

So let's get a party going (let's get a party going)
Now it's time to party and we'll party hard (party hard)
Let's get a party going (let's get a party going)
When it's time to party we will always party hard
Party hard (party hard, party hard, party hard party hard, party hard, party hard party hard, party hard, party hard...)

All right
You,
You break the thing
And when you play you feel all right
But we,
We can't stop feeling all right (all right)
And everything is all right

'Cos we will never listen to your rules (no)
We will never do what others do
(no)
Know what we want and we get it from you
We do what we like and we like what we do

So let's get a party going (let's get a party going)
Now it's time to party and we'll party hard (party hard)
Let's get a party going (let's get a party going)
When it's time to party we will always party hard
Party hard (party hard, party hard, party hard party hard, party hard, party hard party hard, party hard, party hard party hard, party hard, party hard...)


Wesley Willis Lyrics:

Utter hellride profanity at me
Strike my joybus ride music down
Snatch all my rock power away from me
Make me bust my portable CD player
Drag me down with disharmony

Hell me on the bus
Hell me on the bus
Hell me on the bus
Hell me on the bus

Write potty profanity on me
Call me a fucking jerk
Call me a fucking bum
Call me a fucking asshole
Snatch all my rhythm out of harmonization

Hell me on the bus
Hell me on the bus
Hell me on the bus
Hell me on the bus

Rough me up so I can holler
Make me spook passengers on buses
Get me in a mess of trouble
Ward off all my joybus ride music
Transform my rock and roll joybus tour into a nerve shattering hellride

Hell me on the bus
Hell me on the bus
Hell me on the bus
Hell me on the bus

Rock over London, rock on Chicago
Old Style - it's new brewed in God's country


I find it uncanny.

that is all

- J

Tort,

I agree...I've always been interested the Dark side of things. Art, Books, Music, Movies, Etc.
I could never explain it to others that called it sad or disassociated, but it's not that at all to me. hmmmm...intrigue or Hallucinogens...LOL

Yes, I love the Tim Burton aesthetic also. He creates beautiful dark stuff.

How come so many absinthe drinkers are into this dark aesthetic?

Yes, I still have the Tinned Lettuce poster but it was not drawn by hand. Oh, I wish that it was! I have many of his little books, maybe 30 of them. I especially love The Insect God, the Deranged Cousins, the Gilded Bat, and Gashlycrumb Tinies.

Gorey's house in Massachusetts is now a museum and he left a lot of $$ to animal welfare organizations.

He looked just as you described-white keds, tall, bearded, fur coat. But he was an avid fan of the New York City Ballet, went every night during the season and knew many of the dancers.

In Tinned Lettuce there was a funny ballet sequence, a real spoof of ballet. The casting included many weird looking actors that resembled his drawings. This was long long ago at NYU.

I am planning on getting a tattoo of the Doubtful Guest.

There's an excellent book on Gorey written by a close friend of his called "The Strange Case of Edward Gorey". His friend's writing is a little pretentious (Alexander Theroux is his name), but it paints a great picture of Gorey and what an unusual genious he was. Keds, fur coat, heavily ringed fingers, weekly visits to the metropolitan opera from cape cod for 30 years without missing a single week! He was an avid soap opera nut too. And had about 30 cats in his house.

That must have been interesting to work with him, Tort. I never got to see Tinned Lettuce, but have heard of it. I also really wanted to see his version of Dracula. A composer friend of mine, Peter Golub, I believe wrote the music for it. Do you by any chance have any posters from Tinned Lettuce? I heard he hand drew every single one of his performance posters, and none of them were copies!

Tim Burton's Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy is another great Gorey like read....

M is for Maud who was swept out to sea, N is for Neville who died of ennui...

I love Edward Gorey, alas he died not too long ago. Back in college I worked on a musical with him called "Tinned Lettuce." He was an odd guy to be sure, but LOVED CATS!

Test:

Drink a whole bottle of Peptobismol, look in the mirror and stick out your tongue.

Just don't take LSD before you do this, you may end up cutting your tongue off.

I like hot chocolate a lot.
Buffalo '66 baby.

I also like the Edward Gorey profile pic. K is for Kate who was struck with an axe. L is for Leo who swallowed some tacks.

I have often thought that some absinthe tastes like nyquil and some port like robitussin. Haven't yet found anything that reminds me of peptobismol.

Nyquil was my legal drug of choice during my troubled childhood.

But when I couldn't get it, I resorted to Contac and Kool-Aid.

I've had a bit of a cold for the past couple of days, and last night resorted to the nightime sniffling sneezing coughing aching stuffy-head fever so you can rest medicine, in hopes of actually sleeping throught the night. The weird thing is, now that I've developed a taste for absinthe, it tasted kinda good...
