“Deep Thoughts” by Jack Handey.
For some reason as I am recording an album it is really helpful for me (or at least really easy) to watch a lot of a mindless television show(s). For “All these Slippery Things” I checked-out from the library and watched the entirety of ‘Gilmore Girls’ (the pop-culturally most intelligent show ever on TV - The Shins and Yo La Tengo played on that soap opera like show for christ-sakes, they might have even referenced Daniel Johnston) and then watched not one, but both “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” (which honestly inspired some of our last press photos).
This time I watched (or re-watched) 'Felicity’ and 'Life’. I would like to want to feel shame but I truly believe 'shame’ is one of our least productive emotions and, after all, I am really rich in television!
And, no joke, 'Party of Five’ changed my life, but that is another story for another time.
