mangan, jameson, travis and trent

first of all, how freakin' cool is it that i can see a satellite view of dublin on my iphone?!? look, there's mangan's bust in st stephen's green, there's twenty walking into mulligans and FMC into BT2. i would take a pic to awe you but i only have one iphone alas and F decided that for his birthday (tomorrow) he's forgoing the iphone he originally asked for in favor of an xbox, a defection akin to choosing the yanks over the orioles IMO. plus, practically speaking, my iphone sees a whole lot more action than my xbox... then again, i can think of better ways to spend friday night than playing BioShock on xbox live with a bunch of mole-eyed dudes jacked on mountain dew gamefuel. i could be well into a fifth of jameson, for instance, or i could be picking burrs off the dog. i do really cool things, see.

nails wrapped up their european tour in hawaii last night (that's american geography there); here's an archive of the tour photo blog (thank you iphone!) loved and nurtured by rob, TR and keyboardist alessandro cortini. buddyhead was there -- aaron doing acrobatics onstage, travis freeloading -- and they've offered some sensible recommendations for "the upgraded Europe 7.3" addressing ketchup, queues, warm soda and yer monetary system:

Also, let’s get rid of all these fucking coins you savages have to lug around. It sucks dick having to haul all of these worthless pieces of metal in your pockets everywhere you go, and NOBODY with a clue wants to start sporting fanny packs (AKA fag bags). Next time you come out with the newest versions of Swedish pesos or whatever the fuck you have here, let’s press those puppies onto paper, deal?

read the treatise here, but you might have to scroll to the Aug 18th entry because brothas haven't twigged to the concept of anchor links.

finally, if you didn't think trent reznor was prescient, outspoken or attached to a pretty nice ass before now, here's yer sign, offered as a measured, articulate call-to-action before the day the world went away in sydney on sunday:



yo Interpol, peep that eh? THAT is stage presence.

'Steal it' sigh. Darn tootin'.

finn said...

steal shit, and buy the good stuff has become my MO.

the new Down album is the good stuff, phil anselmo or no.

fatmammycat said...

Never heard of him. But after a wikidive I'd have to say I now know who he is! (which I said out loud in a keanu Reeves as John Harker voice, from Dracula)
Huzzah for the interweb.

finn said...

for the bonus round, can you place Dimebag w/o a wikidive?

[though i've seen it a billion times, and i hate cats, your profile pic still makes me snarf. did you see this pic from the fark fail thread?]

fatmammycat said...

NO to the first and a resounding snarf, I did indeed to the second.
it reminded me of Puddy and her funnel when she got her tumour removed, Towards the end the paramour would slide ham down it and she would catch it perfectly.
I think the pic encapsulates me perfectly. If it had a Chanel hand bag perched between her paws it IS me.

has someone mixed your peas n potatoes, or started reading william carlos williams aloud? you've that kind of expression.

though I'm normally not a brand or handbag chick, i bought a coach bag** at the outlets in maine so now I have a place for my iPhone when I dont have pocketses. it smells nice too.

Welcome to the dark side toots, we all float here.

finn said...

my words exactly (but without the toots) when a dear friend recently acquired an ipod (and her 1st apple product).

What an odd post title that is.

finn said...

is
mangan, jameson, travis and trent -- they're all cunts
more to your liking?

Twenty Major said...

It has a certain zing to it, yes...
