small brush shouldn't fuck with big timber

Death's Door, the view from the Spanish announcers table: <strong>MmmmBop?</strong>

Thursday, August 5


I just had to hop on and put this down. All this week on the bus to work I’ve been seeing these kids camping out on the sidewalk in front of the Uptown Theater here in town. At first there was one, then three, then more and more. All lying out on the sidewalk in lawn chairs and sleeping bags and all that kind of shit. I keep looking at the marquee to see who the fuck’s coming in to town that can warrant such intense loyalty. It was like shit I used to see back in the day for the Stones or the Dead. Folks camping out for days and days to be the first in line for tickets or to get into the show. So this evening on the way home I can see from a couple of blocks away that the line of kids has extended it’s self clear around the fuckin block, and they’re all standing up with their shit all folded up and put away. Then I saw some vans from a local pop radio station, and then as the bus got closer I saw signs and posters in the kid’s hands.
Oh, my fuckin god, the fey little muthafucker’s had camped out for a week to be the first in line for Hanson?
Remember them? They were the three brothers that did the “MmmmmBop”song. On the bus a clamor started.
“What the fuck? Goddamn Hanson”?
This middle aged lady all straight-laced looking and shit was getting all bent out of shape.
“Fuckin kids these days don’t know shit about shit”.
We were all talking and pointing at the same time whilst staring out the windows. Who would’a thought, muthafuckin kids sleeping in line for fuckin Hanson. What has the world come too?
"and the monkey flipped the switch"

That is chronic! Rumor was that one of the brothers was in drugs. This is probably paying for his habit. God that song was bad. Now Im hummin it. ARGH!

Not a Hanson fan but I will say this. The boys play thier own instruments and play them well. Can't say that about much of the crap groups that pass as musicians these days.
