A Lazy Bastard reminisces about the old days while watching the grass grow




I've found most people either love this band or hate them, for the record their first two albums are brilliant and go progressively downhill from there, but this is not about the Hold Steady, it's about what Jimmy Carter would call the general malaise i'm in when it comes to sitting down and doing anything productive as far as the typer goes, oh i've been good at drinking and eating drugs but not being able to take walks has really been fucking with me, i'm guessing i'm gonna have to start soon, maybe pop on the headphones and stare in suburban windows as i attempt to get back to the posts that entertain me so much instead of the complete bullshit i seem to be up to these days, yeah maybe it's summer and i should be doing other things but i don't do other things except maybe listen to tunes and read books, i was gonna do a weekend update but who wants to hear about fucking cleaning my house and tanking on the Belmont and battling poison ivy and having some senior citizen hit on me at the plastic paddy pub, so here dear readers is your chance to help my dumb ass... three options, all winners, all will get written but which one first?  The last installment of Late Night Maudlin Street? a new tale from the Wilderness Years? or should i get back to the Portrait of the Derelict as an Old/Young Man?  of course right now i'm so whacked i can't remember what i was writing about when i started and forgot the jist of the above mentioned posts but you know the deal right? voting will close in 24 hours or five minutes or next thursday...

The Hold Steady - awesome.
As for the voting- I think I'm partial to the Wilderness Years, but that's because I miss my own sometimes, probably.
Honestly, though - just write. I'm a fan. Also, currently buzzed. :)

I'm with Sybil. It's Wilderness Years by a length. My past is to tame in comparison. But you're right; they're all winners.

Damn--I'm late to the polls. Wilderness Years! A good, and welcome, contrast to the burbs. (I mean for you. I'll read anything you write, suburban beast or wilderbeast... 'course misery does love company.) ;)
