A nice article from over at Poochfuck. I had a lengthy piece about 'Trout Mask Replica' ready to go last week before the Captain died but re-reading it now it just sounds shallow and I'm not willing to put it out there.

"Once upon a time I played electric guitar
And they said I was a rock n' roll star
Now nobody calls me on the telephone
So I sit and watch the TV all alone
Maybe if I put a bullet in my brain
They'd remember me like Kurt Cobain
And all the parasites on MTV
Would wipe their eyes and act like they knew me..."

"From Here to Here is too short."
