Sometimes when I get drunk I do stupid things, and sometimes when I get drunk I do awesome things.
A few weeks ago one of the things I did was order up a whole crapload of stuff from Drag City.
I basically got a Silver Jews fanboy pack, which I could act all embarrassed about, but fuck it, you know I'm into it.
I bought the first four Jews albums on vinyl, an e.p., a Pavement album that I've never heard, David Berman's book of cartoons, and a Silver Jews DVD. I bought the albums because they all mean a lot to me, the Pavement because it's Pavement, and David Berman's book and DVD because for such a long running "band" they don't have much in the way of a legacy beyond their albums. They've only toured twice and I thought this....
I'm going to stop right there.
I'm a nerd. I'm cool with that. I'm stoked on my purchases.
I'm going to go listen to trains across the sea in the basement.
this dumb cartoon mashup is the only studio one on youtube.
And if any of you are dorks like me, you should grab this live show download: Silver Jews on WFMU
If anybody knows where I can locate more Silver Jews live bootlegs or demo's or anything, hit me up.
perhaps I've said too much.
