Late 92 Prodrive.


Hey,

Iím really very sorry if this point has been made before but....

"Took off the Greenpeace sticker and the New Hampshire plate"

Why would anyone form Greenpeace (or anyone who supports it) drive a car know for the amount of fuel it burns and the amount of CO2 it pumps into the atmosphere!

Although the song jumped out at me when I first heard it on their Myspace, this lyric jumped out at me more.

Actually, (and this is probably even more serious) what is the bands position on Greenpeace, I presume they really donít like them, if they took it off.

Oh, Iím just kidding.

We are talking about a band here whose lyrics include the classics:

"He was killed by a... (You know the rest)"
"Is that supposed to be your poker face, or was someone run over by a train"
"I want a little green guy, about three feet high, with seventeen eyes, who knows how to fly"

So I suppose its strange environmentally fingers up lyrics that we love the band for.

Oh and today was UK release day. Picked it up and oh boy is it so good. Wish I had imported it. You guys in the US are so lucky, I have spent 4 weeks (2 if you include the time it would take me to import it) without an album I should have.

No idea if the release was even today. Bought it in Virgin, which is semi ironic considering the balls up they have made of releasing it over here. Good news is that 21st May is a set date and I will be leaving college to go to Astoria for the gig I have been waiting for since 2004.

Anyway love the album. Shall now return to listening to it.

Peace and Love

Fred 'mulletman' Clark.

YES! UK RELEASE DATE

I ran out and bought it and savoured it

It's beautiful

And now I'll have to attempt to get from Birmingham to London/Manchester just incase they don't come back for 2 more years

With the Greenpeace thing, I havn't got a clue, I figured it was to fit in with the song, the idea that this guy is buying a subaru and its state-of-the-art and he's sticking in all these useless electronic devices, so why would he wanna be supporting Greenpeace?!

Here's what I made up in my head -
Just now.. because before this.. I really hadn't even thought of it... :shrug:

Greenpeace people.. and all people in general can be pretty funny... Vegans wearing leather shoes.. That kind of deal...
People wanting to save the environment and driving a car... Right. So.. there you have it. It's funny... and so true.. most of the time.

About the guy taking the Greenpeace sticker off... This guy's a joke too.. Anyone who would put all that into a '92 Subaru is most likely NOT the kind of person to have a Greenpeace sticker on their car... :shrug: Just going with some fun stereotypes here.. ;) Heh.
It has nothing to do with Fountains of Wayne's views on Greenpeace... Maybe just their views on silly people.... Or.. maybe it just sounded good and there was no major thought behind it... Kind of like when I listen to it... :happydance: Duh duh duh... I like words that sound nice together..




There\'s something blurry about Another Girl...

Thatís what I figured. And who doesnít like nice sounding words. Like most of the song titles on Traffic and Weather. (Revolving Dora. Brilliant)

Donít worry, Iím not going to start picking apart every song that Fountains of Wayne have ever made (for a start it would take years, and where do you begin with Radiation Vibe)...it just seemed like an odd lyric.

Maybe Greenpeace does work because it makes you think "well why is that there". Resulting in semi-time wasting posts like this one! :singing:

I didn't "get" the title of Revolving Dora until recently. People kept on saying it was a stupid pun, and I was like "how is it a pun?" Then I was listening to it...and it just hit me.

I am an idiot. :damn:

It took me about 17 years to figure out WHY I would say "After you..." when letting some go before me..........
I just always said it... and then one day it hit me... :shrug:
