MUSIC MONDAYS: CUMS IN THREES






FIRST, CLICK HERE




memories: ah yes, i heard this song many many times during my difficult transition from one-year-left college student to hopeless shut-in, so i suppose i have mixed memories. on the one hand, it reminds me of putrid failure, but on the other, it was my constant companion whenever i needed to escape my headspace.

feelings: this song makes me feel powerful. if i may be indelicate for a moment, i'm not sure whether the lead singer is a little heavyset or just husky and muscular. if he's husky and muscular, i apologize profusely and ask that he doesn't beat me up, i'm but a skinny nerdfighter. if he's heavyset, well, see the point is that music transcends all that, y'know? music offers that: you can be the fugliest, most awkward stain on human society, but if you can sing, if you can structure a song, and if you're truly honest about your feelings and infuse that into your music, you're a god, you become superhuman, and you will find love, sex, and happiness (well...sometimes...)

structure: speaking of structure, i love this song's driving beat, it picks you up from the ground from the start and never lets you go, you're running a mile before you have a chance to rub your bleary eyes and brush your teeth

conclusion: this song rocks, to date i think it's their best work, i'm going to watch the video and listen to it again, won't you join me?

The Phoenix rises from the ashes, eh?

noddy: a phoenix is inspiring, a late phoenix is problematic

Three way handshakes and gay trysts in Catholic church bathrooms go together like Dennis Rodman and a Versace evening gown. Or something.
