meat puppets moment

i don’t mention the meat puppets often enough, but believe me i think about them. driving to work with a good pups cd blasting is like riding with your ass plugged straight into the mojo socket, all brilliant quirky energy & rapidfire freeassociative lyricpictures from otherwhere. very, very other, matter of fact.

twenty-one little pink salamanders pass me by tonight
twenty-one little red tongues are flickering in my sight
amphibious thoughts are flowing with the salamanders showing
of the “touch of evil” tinted black and white
seventeen fat ripe rats hold stacks of juniper pie aloft
thirty-four clever rat hands are juggling tarts on high
these rodents know the craving for a slice, a sliver or shaving
no request for satisfaction is denied
open wide, open wide

wide open, minded, twisted, thrilling silly on one level, but listen for the logic, it’s intense & also it tickles. all these lies have got me thinking / maybe this is just a thought / soon my ship of thoughts is sinking / slipping through the thinking knot … a person could seriously fall back in love with at least an abstract concept of her life with such a soundtrack as this.

imagine my delight, a few years back sitting enjoying some liner notes & realizing — hey, cris & curt kirkwood — my son kurtwood? yep, subliminally named after the meat puppets. which is perfect.

music is important, have i mentioned that?

  1. with all you have learned in the last few days about skins and stuff, I can’t wait to see what you do with my little touchups.. I so don’t know which skin I like better.. I keep switching back and forth. Have I told ya lately that you are the smartest cookie I know. SUPER HUGS

  2. subliminally — totally. actually, ole whatshisname thought up the name, & i happen to know he was nowhere near a meat puppets cd at the time, nor is he the sort to read & absorb liner notes.

    & it’s original enough, that the kid has his own *first name* dotcom.

    fortunately, the guy who plays the dad on the 70’s show didn’t think to buy up the domain, which is also his first name, however that had nothing to do with my son’s name. nothing. at all.

  3. maybe they had a ridiculous statement to make about something they hadn’t experienced
    possibly sam had a different opinion that nobody’d ever considered important
    and damn it if norman and betty were listening somebody would have become a phenomenal
    howling lightning tampering with the electrical evidence shown to be relevant
    possibly with the exception of ivory everyone else had abandoned the obvious
    chipping away at erroneous garbage which definitely is as exciting as pudding
    deliciously spooned from the lap of the ludicrous into the mouths of the questionless idiots
    licking their lips as their eyeballs are rolling and flapping their tongues as they’re losing
    their
    marbles

    that’s the way sams play around
    that’s the way sams play

    someone who wasn’t related to anyone twisted the facts till the truth was apparent
    and dished up a dollop of dubious doo-doo that sparkled like something folks scrambled to swallow
    slipping the rich through the eye of a needle is easy as getting a camel to heaven
    and granny transgressing had blubbered a bibful of classified info on milton’s imbroglio

    that’s the way sams play around
