We're Marching to Hell

Hell, you say? Needs more of that delectable Yellow Thunder Woman.

That "See How Pretty" song is really heavy and dark and plodding. I've had a bad day and it's making it badder. The imagery in the video is really cheerful, too. I think I may have lost the appetite for that sort of thing now that I'm in my dotage.

It sounds like I'm bitching about the song, but actually I didn't hate it. I just imagine you have to be in a certain frame of mind to appreciate it.

Here's a semi-heavy song I love, though. It's one of my exercise songs. I mean, it's great on it's own, but it's also really motivational.

Also, when I saw the title, "See How Pretty, See How Smart," I was like "Oh, it's a song about me." Then I saw these lyrics:

Leading God Hired
Smiling Sky Under
Under Black Leading
Leading God Halfway
Halfway God Under
Under Sea Soldier
Soldier Lie Losing



Losing Law Hiding
Hiding Me Finding
Finding Strong Cleaning



and I thought, "Oh, it's DEFINITELY about me."

I'm busy chopping up J. Vernon McGee syllable by syllable and making him babble over a Cocteau Twins ripoff. The Melvins are not so far removed from that.

omg, you love him. You looooooove him. I always enjoy your J. Vernon mixes. But only if they are about BUTTS.
