‘Mr. Mastodon Farm’ w. ‘Guitar’: birds fall w. if i throw my guitar

windows 1,418.0*

Birds fall from the window ledge above mine
Then they flap their wings at the last second


this is deep hamlet-type stuffing:
If I threw my guitar
Out the window, so far down
Would I start to regret it
Or would I smile and watch it slowly fall?
hamlet, mixed with Isaac newton…

(I got to this because Cake chestnut “Guitar” is anthologized by Rounder for gun control as a cause or NGO alongside Cheryl Wheeler more obviously topical “If It Were Up To Me” which i referenced in previous post; 1998 was a good era for indie music, implanted me gray matter).

whoa…there is a Cake tribute band out of the midwest so here is their version of “MMF”:

and1: hey, vince difiore, any way you can give me a vibra-slap lesson? I sat in with the Grateful Dead/Dylan/Beatles dudes at Lytton Place, Lucas and friends, on egg shaker, vibra slap and Unicef Kenyan beer can maracas and man my hand is all bruised! i guess its just like John Santos you gotta tape up your knuckles or something but is their a trick to it? Actually dude from Cascades De Flores showed us a real Mexican ass-jaw that rattles….I am way off topic. Don’t throw the guitar, this too shall pass.

*1,418 posts so far to WordPress plastic alto; about 100 mention Cake, I would reckon.
