Tuesday Tune (Anniversary Edition)

There are only a few musical things in life I unabashedly love, and this week's song, a live version of "John Coltrane" by the Mountain Goats, combines two: John Coltrane and the Mountain Goats (of course).

Of course, my favorite non-musical thing is my wife (she alleges that people pay her family not to sing). She has been legally bound to me six years today, and has been dragged to many shows, subjected to much music, and has rarely complained, even after beer bottles have bounced off head. I have been truly impressed and thankful, and continue to be.

Why were you bouncing beer bottles off of her head?

Just kidding. Happy 6th to you and LHGirl.

Thanks to all the well-wishers, we hope for many more years of relative bliss.

Jeff, would you believe the beer bottle bouncing off my wife's head happened at a GbV show? I was more upset than she was...

Happy (belated) Anniversary. I'm always inspired by people who seem to have found "it". A loving, committed relationship is priceless. I've had it, nearly lost it, work hard at it, and pray that my dear hubby will continue to love my incredibly difficult ass for the rest of my life.

Props to yr wife -- always a good idea.
But as to the other stuff: Does this mean a post of Dream Syndicate's "John Coltrane Stereo Blues" is not far behind?

I also love the scene in 'Singles' where Campbell Scott is dejected and depressed, \aying on the floor, head between speakers, listening to 'Blue Train'...

Re the Saul Williams quote, Steven Drake of the late great Vancouver pop band Odds once said on a fan-club cassette that one of their songs relates to the Hindu goddess Kali:
'In each of seven of her eight hands she holds a dagger, and in the eighth she has the head of her dead lover.' Or I'm paraphrasing and I need to find the actual point to tell you, or at least the title of the song.

anyway, I think I understand what Saul's saying.
Creation, destruction. Sex is always messy.
