- I spent a lot of this morning moaning to Christa about the ‘Februaryness’ of August and how it’s that time of the season where I hate everything I like (books, music, food) and am generally bored and cranky with everything. This video and the picture I made of it reminds me that there are some things I like that I still love.
- In case you don’t know, that’s Bob Mould he’s in the AV Club’s Undercover room, and he’s just about to start covering Sugar’s “If I Can’t Change Your Mind.” I have a great deal of pent up affection for Mr. Mould even though I thought his autobio was a bit of a snooze. His music, in many of its incarnations (Husker Du, Sugar, solo) reminds me of the people I love most in the world and times that make me smile. I loved the album “Copper Blue” so much that I named one of my very favorite cars (the 1979 Chrysler Newport) Sugar in homage.
- “If I Can’t Change Your Mind” is my favorite song that Bob Mould has written and seeing him ‘cover’ it is pretty rad.
- If you look carefully you can see the words “I Will Dare” scrawled above his left shoulder. It was from when Mates of State covered The Replacements’ “I Will Dare.” I would not recommend listening to that cover, it is not good. In fact, it is really bad. No, it’s an abomination. But I still like seeing those words written above Bob’s shoulder because, well, Duh. Of course I like seeing I Will Dare out in the wild.
