Mimi

I've seen the Long Winters play two versions of Mimi: the slow version (as heard on The Worst You Can Do Is Harm), and a fast version (not available in studio format, as far as I know, but a live version is available in MP3 format here. ) When they played at the Seattle Art Museum earlier this year,...

Hey, because I am SUCH A GIANT NeRd, I went poking about on Google, and have discovered just exactly what 'throwing shapes' means Strange, after reading the google findings, the definition of "Throwing Shapes" online seems to be different from the one John gave on KEXP Saturday night. John's defini...

Just a quick guess... Peter lives in Seattle. He's in the Minus 5, and the rest of the Minus 5 feature in various places on the album as well. AND the Posies are there, too. It's chock full of Seattle people.

Ni huay shuo putonghua, Royal? Wa shuo-da bu hao. Wa xiang jin nian qu Chung-hua. I said HIGH SCHOOL. And if I remember correctly, I even had to fall back from Chinese III back in to Chinese II because I was being so lazy in my studies. All I can remember now (it being 11 years since I was in high ...

Chupa-chups! Only because it means something like "sucky-suck" in Spanish. At least that's what I was told.

Oh, what do I know, I studied CHINESE in high school.

Why does our ass of a president insist on mispronouncing the word nuclear as "NUKE-U-LAR"?

the first one

I see I'm the only one who's voted for "Shapes". I think "Shapes" was the first song from the new album that I heard them play live, way back when (at Chop Suey? or was it even before that? Capitol Hill Block Party? I can't remember). It has stuck with me ever since. The chorus is absolutely infecti...

hideous retro cover art?!? Sheesh! I think what Thingmakers put together is fantastic. They always put together something that is different, engaging, and TACTILE. How about that thermography on the cover? Excellent work.

Outshined

Did anyone else see the short set that Sean and John played before They Might Be Giants last night (5/6/03) at the Croc? They were able to get the stoically-quiet Seattle crowd to participate (shouting "No you are" during New Girl") AND in order to explain to John Flansburgh exactly what grunge was ...
