I was listening to Trail of Dead the other day and I finally paid attention to the lyrics and this is what I heard in "Will You Smile Again for Me?"

If you don't want it then
You could at least pretend
That the paper's your soul
And your butt's the pen

Wow, I thought, asshole as amenusis and toilet paper as notebook. I didn't realize they had that kind of a sense of humor. Gettin' all Ofili'd up in a Trail of Dead album! Imagine!

So I looked up the lyrics. Turns out they're

If you don't want it then
You could at least pretend
That the paper's your soul
And your blood's the pen

so ... yeah. No one in Trail of Dead has a scatological sense of humor. I have that sense of humor.

Good. you should show your love by attending my party. dress up is totally not required, I think I'll be the only one there doing it.

Oh I'm totally going. Was even going to hit the Garment District for appropriate attire first. Maybe "Hills Like White Elephants." Maybe "Grapes of Wrath." I haven't decided.
