Vinyl Side 2 of Zen Arcade is one of my favorite things in the world. Each song is terrific, but, I think they work best together as one unit.
Maybe you’ve never heard the record, or maybe you already treasure it as much as I do. Either way, toss it on your iPod and get ready for eighteen minutes and twenty seconds of paint-peeling rock n’ roll from a band at the height of their powers.
One of my favorite Vic Chesnutt songs. Some of his best lyrics and delivery.
I was supposed to tell you
About the point of departure
But with the aim of a drunken archer
I will probably stray
But you can see in her bold eyebrow
You can see in that fancy cup
That even her freakish nipples are akimbo
When producing a movie, everything stems back to this box: IDEA. In the 1940s, these were the sources of ideas: “Play,” “Short Story or Novel,” “Newspaper Story or Current Event,” “Original Story,” “Magazine Article,” or “Historical Incident.” Way off on the left, however, there’s one additional source that’s not shown above: “Vice President in Charge of Production.” If you want something unoriginal done that isn’t in print or in the history books, go talk to the VP, he’ll get it done.
