There are two things I harp on to an annoying degree, both on this blog and in real life.
1. I love the Flaming Lips.
2. I love the Oklahoma Sooners/hate Texas.
You might not care about those things, but I do, so tough cookies because I’ve got shit to say.
First of all, the Flaming Lips recently released a six-hour song.
Yes, a song that lasts six hours.
While it was intended to be a song that one could listen to while, perhaps, partaking in a little illegal activity, it’s also a good way to pass the work day. I’m about half-way through it and I’m digging it. Good background music.
I like this concept and the fact that the Lips are constantly pushing music boundaries, but the fact that they’re now working on a 24-hour song to be released in a human skull perplexes me.
Mostly because this means there isn’t much hope for the D.C. show I’ve been pleading for over Facebook and Twitter to happen anytime soon.
And as far as Texas goes, well they still suck. The Red River Rivalry is tomorrow at noon, and I’ll be watching it with the SIL, who is finally coming to visit me!
Now if I can just get through the rest of this song…
