true confessions time. last night i went to get the next dvd of lost from the video store. i can't wait until we are up to date with them, because then i can go and read the reviews bevis has put together.
i took john's car.
this is john's car:
my sister and i call it electric blue, only when we say it we actually sing it, like in that icehouse song.
so i drive out into the night. window open, cause it was so warm. this would ordinarily be an unspectacular moment. and it was. until i put on the radio.
this is what was on:
now, i grew up in the 70s listening to my cousins' black sabbath, led zeppelin and deep purple albums. when i listen to wolfmother, it takes me back to my childhood, times spent running wild, playing with scalectrix cars, cb radios and skateboards. and listening to this type of music.
yes, it's derivative. there's kind of this status quo riff running right through the back of a lot of the songs.
but i find it intoxicating, especially when driving that car. so intoxicating i dragged off a man in a station wagon who tried to take me on, at the lights on nepean highway, but then i missed my turn. and had to do a u-turn, which wasn't very wolfmother.
there. i've said it. i didn't think i would, but in much the same way that i have crossed over after taking the piss out of john's car, now it's happening with his music.
but it will never NEVER happen with the football team. i will never, ever barrack for collingwood. again.
do you have an inner, or indeed an outer, hoon?
