so Anna Nicole Smith died. fives months after her son committed suicide allegedly due to his mother giving birth to a baby that very well may be of his own seed. well...it's not like anyone involved in that family stood a chance. they were fucked from the get-go.

"Pink Cigarette" by Mr. Bungle is my song for the week. a beautiful song about a guy who's wife/girlfriend cheats on him so much that he decides to kill himself. well...Valentine's Day IS this coming Wendesday.

the new albums by Joanna Newsom and Scott Walker are some of the most fantasically challenging brews of music i've ever heard.

that's all. oh and fuck winter.

"all these years i've been your ashtray."

Lord Fargis Fargus

i don't know how exactly to describe this band. a trio. bass, vocals, and drums. improvised lyrics. somewhere perhaps between the Shaggs and Brainbombs. vocalist Fargis is a teenager whose apparently the genuine article; loud, violently bizzare and legititmatley disturbed (of the mental variety) yet immensley likeable (to me, at least). He's the kind of dangerous shouting mental patient completely removed from notions of normalcy that Mike Patton has been posing as for almost a decade, only for real.

choice cuts; Wes is Doomed, I'm the CIA, the Dinosaurs aren't Dead

both of their albums are up for d/l on that site. check out the video as well.
