Thanks for "TSR," I hadn't heard that one. I'm partial to "Picking Boogers."

Has she heard Busy Bee?

Substance McGravitas said...

Jeez no, that's a distant corner of my mind.

J— said...

Yeah, distant for me too. I read bee and rap and the name popped into my head. Someone I used to hear back in the 80s, when the only regular hip hop programming I could find in my area (Monterey Peninsula) was a weekly, one-hour show on KUSP from Santa Cruz.

J— said...

No, three hours! Nine to midnight, I think, on Saturdays.

Try being a Canadian. Vast amounts of music of the darker-hued variety just never got shipped here.

Try being a Canadian.

Um. OK. Howzit work? Is it like a free introductory offer where I'm a Canadian for 90 days and if I don't remember to write "Cancel" on the invoice I start getting billed?

Or is it more of a test drive, where I can be a Canadian for a few hours but then I have to come back to the lot, give it back and go home an American again?

Or is it even less than that, more like a dressing room where I go in and, after pulling the curtain so no one can see me with my birthright off, I try on a pair of Canadian-ness and kinda twist around to see how it makes my butt look?

Can I ease into it by being a Newfoundlander?

Are you sure you want to do that? Since the cod fish moratorium, you now have to kiss a puffin on the ass.

...if you've been a Canadian for mor than four hours, contact a doctor

w/v "enothon" ...yeah, no, I'll pass

Substance McGravitas said...

Does Eno have an American presence?

ckc (not kc) said...

I was thinking of Brian Peter George St. John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno
(..uuurrpp!)

The daddy/daughter stuff always makes me go "Awwww.". I'm such a sap. Also, YAY--poop!

I actually had an album by a Canadian rap group that was actually pretty great. So great i don't remember the name. How embarrassing.

mikey said...

We don't like to fight
We romp around inna snow
We all tight
Buy a sweater for the ho
Not a pullover or a vest
Give those to Grover n the rest
We're getting with the cardigan
Got it in the bazaar again
Your sniffles kinda worry me
We prob'ly oughta hurry, see
There's some bad guys from the other coast
They got guns we got some French Toast
We don't like to fight
'Cause we often lose
We can't get it right
In these hush puppy shoes..

mikey said...

Oh.

I guess I should say.

That's some Canadian Rap.

Enjoy...

Must be Snow.

Substance McGravitas said...

Organized Rhyme featuring Tom Green.

vacuumslayer said...

Must be Snow.

Must be no. *shudder* OK, I'm actually worried now that I cant remember the name. Started with "M," I think...

vacuumslayer said...

Whew. I rememered. Not senile yet!

Substance McGravitas said...

They got kicked off Nettwerk - home of Sarah McLachlan! - because one of 'em hangs out with the Hell's Angels a lot.

vacuumslayer said...

I used to be really into Sarah. I'm not proud or ashamed. It is what it is. Now she doesn't make music, she just makes PSA's about animal abuse that make me want to put a bullet in my brain.

Substance McGravitas said...

Never liked her. I really liked The Cocteau Twins and her early stuff seemed like a poor version of what they did. Plus "yearn" never needs to be used in a song ever again.

vacuumslayer said...

Oh, well, let me take a moment to compose myself...because I'm shocked you don't like Sarah MacLachlan.

I can kinda hear the similarities there, and yeah, her music was definitely less pleasingly quirky.That song should totally be a part of this soundtrack.

mikey said...

"Yearn" will always be a valuable lyrical component because it is a powerful word with a +7 Emo coefficient and rhymes with all sorts of important shit.

vacuumslayer said...

burn!
Learn!
Turn!
Blurn!


Smut is making me listen to "Hurricane" by BOC. I am...unmoved.

Substance McGravitas said...

BOC are much more interesting when other people listen to them.

vacuumslayer said...

HA!

Now I know that if someone wants me to listen to BOC, I can politely tell him that I just want to listen vicariously.

w/v says this makes Smut "incenst."

mikey said...

Meh.

Shooting Shark was brilliant.

I LOVEDD "Twilight Zone", but whaddaya know, that turned out to be Golden Earring.

So Meh.

Cling to Shooting Shark, a little Reaper, and move on...

vacuumslayer said...

Oh, is that the "something something THE REAPER" song? That's how I remember it.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

"Perfect Water" was also pretty good mikey.

And in recent year, "Harvet Moon"

Also, the whole " Imaginos" album kind of rocked.

Ofncoure, none of it is hippety-hoppy enough for red headed girls....

M. Bouffant said...

A friend's girlfriend once noted that she didn't like BÖC because "there was too much going on."

Minor adjustment:

Give those to Grover n the rest

Give those to Gord n the rest

M. Bouffant said...

No Eno in the USofA. Ingredients somewhat like Alkie-Seltzer, 'cept that has aspirin.

I just use the baking soda I keep in the fridge. Has its own flavor(s).
