    New guy told me to check out the Tedischi Trucks Band, which I might do just to be polite. He also told me that he is a "Misfits geek" and that hearing the Grateful Dead for the first time was a "religious experience"

    This other new guy looks like George the Animal Steele and was wearing this t-shirt yesterday.

    I wonder what he listens to.

    I worked with a dude who'd heard of David Bowie, one time.

    This old guy who works in the office saw me out on the beer one night wearing a Motörhead t shirt and ever since then he's been trying to get me into some new rock band called "shine down" that is apparently super heavy.

    Continue stalling, for your own good.

    Dudes at work have referenced Foxygen, particularly about them being featured on Sound Opinions. There has also been some buzz surrounding something called Americanarama.

    I could be wrong but they might be talking about the music event featuring Bob Dylan, My Morning Jacket, & Wilco over at Toyota Park.

    Also, none of that shit touches the bullshit I deal with on a daily basis. I wake up fairly frequently to the chicks in my hall bumping Purity Ring. I mentioned Best Coast once and they all almost dropped to their knees because I knew who that was. Ridiculous.

    Yeah, I'm definitely a lot more down with the unsound musical opinions of old dudes than those of college chicks.

    Being too poor to go see Motorhead at The Congress (lol) was one of recent life's harsher realms, over here.

    Definitely more down with the college chicks, surprising no one.

    And yes, it's that Toyota Park thing. And yes, apparently there is a place called Toyota Park.

    new dude(?) at work is doing a phd in Arthur Russell. I tried talking to him about the actual music but he just kept waffling on about gender politics.

    made the mistake of putting him on to Terre Thaemlitz and now he thinks we're best budz

    seems more like a guy who is a chronic shopper in his local big box retailer's "graphic tees" section than a Juggalo

    I don't know. He's got a Joker tattoo on his forearm, an eyebrow ring and evidence of several failed piercings on his earflesh. I'm still piecing together the evidence without engaging him in casual conversation. I'm already going to have to talk to him about how he shouldn't following people around blathering on about hockey or how many footlong Subways he eats for lunch instead of working if he's expecting to be employed next week.
