RANDOM END/START: Lagwagon ‘Name Dropping’
Since I’m coming to you from 9 hours in the future, this is a Random End, as opposed to a Random Start. Also acceptable: “My Eyes Feel Like Someone Squirted Sriracha In Them, and My Head Feels Like Someone Slammed It In A Car Door” Start.
I’ve got good news and bad news. The bad news is that I’m jet-lagged as all hell. I didn’t help my cause by getting out of bed at 4am and finding a stream of the Lakers/Thunder game, but I figured it would be worth it. Was I ever wrong. (Nice work, Kobe.) The good news is that I’m the only American here, and I couldn’t be doing a better job of representing all of my fellow ‘Mericans. So far I’ve confirmed their suspicions that we all carry guns, and felt I had an obligation to fill them in on the “8-year-old birthday mandatory gun gift” tradition we have. I’ve also reminded them that we actually know what happens to our criminals, seeing as though we have this crazy thing called the 6th Amendment. We take that for granted, but from what I’ve been told, they literally have no clue what happens in their courts. For example, some of those arrested for the London riots? They have no idea if they were convicted or not. ZERO.
Anyway, on a more musically-related note, if you’re a Lagwagon fan, you really need to revisit all of the remastered reissues out there. Spotify has them all, and I’ve been giving them plenty of attention as of late. As much as I love Duh and Trashed, hearing them in their newly remastered glory is FANTASTIC.
