I lost or traded in or sold the car with the combination Superchunk David Gilhooly mash up bumper sticker but now have a magic silver box thru which I pretend I can see and hear Superchunk more recently than Bottom of Hill with baby in arms

new video by one of my favorite bands, called Chuck then Chunk then Superchunk

edit to add: 1. It was  post called “Das Sticker” from February, 2011 that is to say seven years ago: David Gilhooly Smith-Andersen bumper sticker circa 1985 over-laid with Superchunk sticker circa 2010, on 2004 white Toyota Highlander, as seen in or around Palo Alto, California. With photo, not sure worth adding here. Reference to Das Racist band and their Taco Bell song.

2. Did I hear Jon Wurster’s voice as guest voice cameo in the Wes Anderson puppet dog movie, Jon the Superchunk drummer (replaced Chuck Garrison the namesake — which in this case I mispronounce four syllables like the motorcycle brand name) and funny guy although at first I thought he sounded like a girl?

3. I’m trying to find a citation that would pinpoint exactly when I saw Mac of Superchunk and I guess Portastatic side project at Bottom of the Hill when his first child was new-born and on-tour — which is probably last time I saw him or them doing anything in person — the first time was 1991 at Cat’s Cradle and they also Superchunk played Earthwise 5-year event at Cubberley in 1999 — but instead found 1992 “For Tension” but he introduces it as a song called “Real Change” so go figure:

4. A BOTH database says Portastatic featuring Mac of Superchunk played thrice there between 2003 and 2005 so that might be last time I’ve seen or heard them live, which makes some sense since I have not been to Chapel Hill since 2002 or so, and not really been anywhere since Midwest tour with Dao Strom in 2009.
