so lately i'm totally into wilco, especially the album "yankee hotel foxtrot"... i'm wondering if anyone else enjoys them... i never really gave any lyrics for that last post, but i think this song below is resonating something bad these last few weeks, as well as "Jesus etc"... i hear jeff tweedy has a book of poetry out, anyone know if it's any good?... i can barely afford CD's so a book of poetry is an enormous luxury...

looked up the conet project, 'caus YHF has lots of samples from it... i was really disappointed that a site with the "free music philosophy" link didn't have any sample clips to download, although i know they used to... that sample at the end of "poor places" is awesome, this really snotty, secret-agent brit repeating the same phrase over and over... gives me chills...

Poor Places

It's my father's voice trailing off
Sailors sailing off in the morning
For the air-conditioned rooms
At the top of the stairs

His jaw's been broken
His bandage is wrapped too tight
His fangs have been pulled
And I really want to see you tonight

There's bourbon on the breath
Of the singer you love so much
He takes all his words from the books
That you don't read anyway

His jaw's been broken
His bandage is wrapped too tight
His fangs have been pulled
And I really want to see you tonight

Someone ties a bow
In my backyard to show me love
My voice is climbing walls
Smoking and I want love

My jaw's been broken
My heart is wrapped in ice
My fangs have been pulled
And I really want to see you tonight

And it makes no difference to me
How they cried all over overseas
When it's hot in the poor places tonight
I'm not going outside

They cried all over overseas
It makes no difference to me
When it's hot in the poor places tonight
I'm not going outside

It's hot in the poor places tonight
I'm not going outside
I'm not going outside
I'm not going outside

(Yankee...hotel...foxtrot)
