I could have just facebooked this to you but I opted not to, and by opted not to, I mean facebook became angry with me and wouldn’t let me. So, I’m communicating with you via my blog. Annoying to everyone else, I’m sure. So, I had never heard of that Mumford band until you made me that CD with them on it and today, look what I found.
First, Matt Nathanson posted it as what he was listening to this morning. He does that all the time and it’s usually pretty good music so I pay attention when it flies across my wall. So I was pleasantly surprised to see Mumford & Sons. And then, seconds later, I saw that ThinkIndie posted a live video of “Roll Away Your Stone” and now I really want to see these guys live. I’ve also realized that I’m probably pretty late in the game to just be hearing their music, but I dig it and thank you for rad music, bro.
If you’ve opted to read this and you are someone other than Mr. Burke, kudos my friend. As a teaser for my official start to summer blog (because the last one was such a fail that I decided I’d need another), I leave you with these lyrics.
Chickity China the Chinese chicken
You have a drumstick and your brain stops tickin’
Watchin’ X-Files with no lights on
We’re dans la maison
I hope the Smoking Man’s in this one
Like Harrison Ford I’m getting frantic
Like Sting I’m tantric
Like Snickers, guaranteed to satisfy
ike Kurasawa I make mad films
Okay, I don’t make films
But if I did they’d have a Samurai
Gonna get a set a’ better clubs
Gonna find the kind with tiny nubs
Just so my irons aren’t always flying off the back-swing
Gotta get in tune with Sailor Moon
‘Cause the cartoon has got the boom anime babes
That make me think the wrong thing
If you know what song this is without googling the lyrics, please be my best friend. My first goal for this summer is to learn the lyrics and be able to successfully sing this entire song. A daunting task, I know.
Also, I’m done caring about what you think of me.
