“Listen up. I know the shit you’ve been saying behind my back. You think I’m stupid. You think I’m immature. You think I’m a malformed, pathetic excuse for a font. Well think again, nerdhole, because I’m Comic Sans, and I’m the best thing to happen to typography since Johannes fucking Gutenberg.”—
UM! so, i just got the live at electrical audio album. and it’s good. really good. but this version of i never wanted you (originally from the headphones album) is absolutely incredible. the whole live album was recorded in one take with no overdubs…which just makes it even better.
what’s killing me about this one is that he’s saying what are the probably the most hurtful words anyone could say to anyone anytime ever…but somehow i feel like he’s the one in pain. well played, david. well played.
so now i’m in my office, door open, belting this shit. i may or may not be the last one here…who knows?
i’m working on a winter mix, and this song isn’t gonna make the cut. not because it isn’t a great song (it is), but because it’s more of an “it’s cold” mix than a “happy holidays, i think” mix. so this is it. this is all you get.
this was the first starflyer 59 song i ever heard. it was on a 7ball sampler in…1998? anyway, it changed my life a li’l bit. right after that i bought americana and the fashion focus and everything got awesome.
