C & D
Two confirmed schmucks grapple with the big issues—and an unexpected female visitor.

PICK A WINNER dvd
(Load)
C: You’re not going to believe this.
D: Try me.
C: [delicately loading DVD] Like an hour’s worth of charmingly bonkers/whimsical low-tech animation to go with homemade psych-crunge by the usual Fort Thunder-plus suspects… [Reading the sleeve text] “Dual formatted, double dipped and extra-whipped. Technicolor-laced acid flakes are on the table.

C: Lightning Bolt, Black Elf Speaks, Wolf Eyes, Neon Hunk, Pink & Brown…
D: [eyes pinwheeling] I don’t believe it. I mean, I do believe it. I am believing it very hard.
C: Party video of the year. People are gonna be getting mandala’d all winter long to this thing, man. Plus there’s a CD in here too.

Party Of Special Things To Do

 

when the stiff wind blows 

the flag dont wiggle

in the party of special
things to do

I met the ace of love

she took me to her plantation

for the love without separation

in the party of special
things to do


it could happen to me

it could happen to you

I met the ace of love

she said I want you to go

to the party of special
things to do

and when you’re through

Ill be right here waiting
for you


here take these sparks 

so my distant cousins can
get along with you


watch out for the mirror
man


and elixir sue

when I got to the party
of special things to do 


it wasnt hard to find Elixir
Sue


I met all the cards 

the wild cards 

the one-eye jill

the red queen

she turned her head

you know what I mean 

she turned it back and said

“I got a brand new game
I want to lay on you”


I met them all 

at the party of special
things to do

when I was done

I was far from through

I returned to the ace of
love


now wouldnt you?

I met them all

the camel wore a nightie

the camel wore a nightie

at the party of special
things to do


….elixir sue

it wasnt hard to find liquor
at the do


I met all the cards 

the wild cards 

you know what I mean 

then she turned it back
and said 


“I got a brand new game
I think I want to lay on you”


I met elixir sue

at the party of special
things to do


its so special
