Chip: "Those looking for a follow-up event to last night's Nogglefest, which I always skip, might be wise to check out Ratatat at the Granada tonight. Lawrence.com says: "Ratatat is a primarily instrumental duo composed of laptop geeks...The group's three albums demonstrate an evolution of carefully selected bleeps and bloops." Now one thing a lot of people don't know about me is that I love this kind of little twinkly Casio music. The Postal Service, for instance, is awesome, yet Cl.thier refuses to bring in his little Casio and give me what I need! Adding a few bleeps and boops to a song says, 'I'm a sensitive songwriter who doesn't always need to rock out to assert my masculinity.' Look at these lyrics from The Postal Service's "Such Great Heights": "I am thinking it's a sign/ That the freckles in our eyes are mirror images/ And when we kiss they're perfectly aligned." That's poetry, friends. If I use that line at Quinton's, it might well earn me a blowjob."
Coming soon: Chip considers the N'Sync reunion album!
