You're not done with "your mix"?

Meaning that you're just making one generic mix and sending it out to a bunch of people?

Does this mean I don't get a personal mix, when I'm making one for you?

Fie, w-lfs-n. Fie.

Incidentally, I sent you TWO emails today. One personal, and one social invite. So even if you are craving emails, you certainly aren't responding to them.

bitch's boyfriend is more dapper

We're going to have to agree to disagree on this one.

Apostropher on the other hand, contrary to his online image, was dressed in an extravagant ensemble of brightly colored imported silks.

(Ben said he was trying to cause trouble, but it was such a feeble attempt I thought I'd try to help him out)

I'd like to suggest that bitch's boyfriend is more dapper than I've ever witnessed slolernr to be

I've never met slolernr. So if I were to make an invidious comparison, I would suggest that Mr B is more dapper than B's boyfriend.

"I crave your entrails". I thought it was brains.

When I get to MN I will send Ben my avant-garde/jazzrock/miscellaneous mix (3 CDs). Playlist here:

again me with my unasked insight
i'm glad i saw pics, i was imagining people here as that 70's show's characters for example John Emerson was red, ogged was naturally erik or fez intermittently, ben w-lfs-n - steve, donna - serious white girls, jackie - when not serious, all generic white guys - kelso etc
see i imagined right, very sympathetic
though of course all of you are deeper than them
in your opinion :)

Mr. B was very dapper but otherwise seemed like a fine person. Irony: he's a real German, but looks much less German than B.

I forgot to mention that after the Hipster Emerson costume was rejected I was working on a composite Dude / Walter Lebowski outfit.

And as I've said, we really are honkies, aren't we? We're not even very Jewish. Rather than be defensive, I think that we should point out that every choice to affiliate with Unfogged frees up an elite position for a person of color. We're not exactly overachievers around here, are we? As far as DS and Silvana go, perhaps it would be easier to adopt them into the formerly-master race rather than try to attain a diversity of slackerdom among our own little sinking ship.

Lake Wobegon welcomes diversity, we have a Chinese pastor's wife in the most Lutheran church we've got, but so far, Wobegon has not been a magnet either for the suffering masses or for the cosmopolitan elite.

Read, you have to come to the next one. Heebie cried when she realized that her reign as the Unfogged new face was over and that you had replaced her. Poor Heebie.

When I get back to Minnesota I want to put together a page of links to Mongolian video and whatever other internet resources you want to tell me about.

No, I'm making two. Something like twenty people expressed an interest, and I'm sipmly not prepared to make individualized mixes for them all. Christ on a crutch, BL.

I would also point out that what I wrote was "I haven't finished mine yet", which has no implications as to quantity.

So even if you are craving emails, you certainly aren't responding to them.

No contradiction there.

This e-mail address works.

I was stuck for a while, but I think I will get my mix finished today.

There's (at least) one song that doesn't quite fit but, darn it, who cares, I'm going with it anyway.

Let me rephrase and expand.

I will be using gmail's labels to group together the emails from people for when I make the announcement post. So you should email me.

You weren't rude, read, though it will be difficult to have a CD mailed to you without divulging an address.

Music thought of the day:

I was listening to "Bastards of Young" by the Replacements, thinking about how strong the final verse is, and was suddenly struck by the last line of the verse:

"The ones who love us best are the ones we'll lay to rest
And visit their graves on holidays at best.
The ones who love us least are the ones we'll die to please.
If it's any consolation, I don't begin to understand them."


What incredibly confident song writing that is.

I don't know how he wrote that, but imagine that you're Paul Westerberg, you're 25, you've just written three lines of a verse that's better than most people write in their lifetime, and you need a closing line. You might get nervous at this point, and decide that you just want something that won't fuck it up.

Instead, he writes a line that doesn't rhyme, doesn't really scan, doesn't sound like any other rock lyric, ever, and is completely brilliant. It anchors the verse, and the entire song, by making it personal and pulling it away from being too glib.

And, how great a word is "consolation" there, both in sound and mood?

I've heard that song dozens of times, and that final line never stuck in my head. It was always the parallelism of the preceding lines that I remembered, but that last line is amazing.
