    Thanks, man! I love the New Tree Ants. I'm a sucker for things that play around with word. That's great! (I also love the O-need-ers! Ha!)

    I love the band name game. I swear, when I was in my late teens/early 20s we used to form bands just for the sake of naming them. I think my favorite was Celestial Phallus which was an inside joke dig at our friend who used to get SUPER annoyed when we would refer to Orion's sheath as his giant celestial penis. I think we jammed like twice and moved on. Skinny Legs and All (which I think is a Bukowski reference) was another fun one that my friends had for an afternoon sit down with a room centered tape recorder session. That one kind of grabbed at my brain in a cool way. Those were good times.

    I actually recorded like 2 songs on my own and started mapping out a set with visions of forming Chazz Anger Featuring Righteous Dropkicks at one point.

    "If you were to start a band and got to name it what would you be called" game: GO!
    easy! 'The C drives'. basically a Weezer Teal Album cover band!
    If you redo the Weezer Teal album like The Rentals then I would like to audition please.  Wait maybe that band would be called Friends of C.
    Hell yeah cover band cover band!!!
    I also very much enjoy Friends of C, very clever. Ha! Also, I like both of those names man. Particularly "Ambient Ambulette." Intriguing and it rolls out nice. Good base to build some cool album covers on. Very cool.

    They're both really dumb, but depending on the overall sound I've had Ergo, Dinosaur stuck in my head for a long time. I also like Broseph McCarthy and the Red Wave for something maybe along the lines of a Bossanova era Pixies sound.

    If you’re still spitting and dry hacking from the teal album, go listen to Varshons 2 by The Lemonheads.  Thank you Lord for restoring my faith in good covers. 

    A Jayhawks cover. In. Just ordered it.
    RE: The Lemonheads. There was a silly twitter game to predict the name of Episode 9 and the best response I saw was by Ryan McGee (of Talkin TV With Ryan and Ryan) going with "It's A Shame About Rey"

    Last week I misread "a competitive banking show" when someone posted about a "competitive baking show."

    In other news: does anyone know how to set up a pitch meeting with Hulu for a new project I'm developing called "Cash Them Checks"?
