the title to that last post, “hey you someone i once knew, sit your butt down. . .” it reminded me of some sage words of advice promojoe gave the day before the westerberg show when i was comparing it to a pilgrimage to mecca and how i wasn’t sure i could handle so much greatness at once and blah, blah, blah.
“all i have to say,” he started, “is if you start to hyperventilate and feel like you are gonna pass out– just think, ‘hey you someone i once knew.’ that’s got to be the worst piece of shit songwriting ever. if that doesn’t make him human to you, you’re beyond repair.”
it didn’t help really. but thinking about such sage advice makes me giggle.
