How am I supposed to know if you’re high if you won’t let me touch you?


It’s like some amusing scene from a movie about nerds up in this place. K, Joy and I were joined by Katie last night. Now we’re all sitting here, laptopped up and listening to the new Hold Steady (Katie said, “What is this? I REALLY like it.” And of course she did. Man, my sister says my dad likes this album. EVERYONE likes this album). My pretty Anna gets here this afternoon.

There was a point to this, I’m sure, but I’ve forgotten so have a song instead: Chips Ahoy! – The Hold Steady (click to download)

  1. i cannot wait to fall into the arms of y’all in five hours.

  2. I like this track better than the last one you posted (“Stuck Between Stations”) although something about the dude’s voice anti-appeals to me. “Stuck Between Stations” lost due to excessive amounts of rock piano.
    Maybe I’m a mutant. Everyone’s using it these days and I’m the only person who doesn’t seem to like it.

  3. He does have one of those voices, like Bobby Bare Jr or the guy from the Magnetic Fields that some people just can’t take. Try this one: Citrus.

  5. Aw, commenting from across the room. It’s almost like you live here.

  6. That one is definitely more my speed.

  7. I am SO jealous right now. You hookers better have fun.

  8. Cool, thanks! Been wanting to check them out.
