I’m so far back I can’t see :(
The tickets are printed, the car is rented. This Wednesday I’m off to Austin (from Dallas) to see the amazing Garbage. Still haven’t decided if I’m going to spend the show watching, listening, and generally enjoying the show; or over-thinking, and predicting the playlist and trying to get some great pictures and videos.
Hmmmm…. We shall see.
Where are all the Garbage remixes, live tracks, and b-sides? None of that stuff exists anymore. With the exception of the Japanese extra track “Love like Suicide” I guess there’s not much left to collect. Sad.
If you’ve really listened to the lyrics the way I’m sure most of you have, doesn’t it sound like they’re saying goodbye? They are making constant references to saying goodbye. The one line (among many) that really stands out is “when we’re gone we will remain.”
Pretty pissed my iTunes pre-order has not come through yet. No amount of rebooting, refreshing, or yelling gets me any closer to the album.
Also, no physical copy in stores (in the US) until 5/22.
I always thought she was saying “waiting for God, oh hell with my pants down…” in “Blood for Poppies.” I finally got a chance to read the lyrics and it turns out to be “‘Waiting for Godot’ hell, with my pants down.” But then I was all like, “What the hell is “waiting for Godot? Is it anything like ‘Waiting for Guffman’?” And Yes, it is.
“Waiting for Godot ( /ˈɡɒdoʊ/ GOD-oh) is an absurdist play by Samuel Beckett, in which two characters, Vladimir and Estragon, wait endlessly and in vain for the arrival of someone named Godot. Godot’s absence, as well as numerous other aspects of the play, have led to many different interpretations since the play’s premiere. It was voted “the most significant English language play of the 20th century.”
