It's an open smile on a friendly shore
Hmm, I thought shaving my head would allow me to better endure
out little heatwave. But it doesn't really; in fact, now the
problem is that without something for the sweat to hang in,
it just rolls into my eyes. I need to start fluffing up my eyebrows.
an odd little jaunt for the land-weary: some guys own a couple
of boats and for 25 beans you can ride around Manhattan
all night on them while gettin' jiggy to some live rock bands.
I had heard of this last year, because I believe my friends
Forms were poised to weigh anchor (although I don't think
they went through with it). The boat thing has been brought
to my attention again because The
Giraffes apparently set a course for adventure yesterday
on board "The Temptress." I have no idea how they
book these things. What a bizarre thing to see, a band like
The Giraffes on a large moving vehicle. Now, if they played
the Staten Island Ferry, that I could see. But a semi-luxury
cruise yacht? Seems a little off the mark. Most of the other
bands that do this gig are tribute bands, covering everything
from Jimmy Buffet to Motley Crue. But it looks like there
few other respected acts performing, like Antibalas and the
kids from that real School of Rock with the real teacher who
never ceases to be pissed off at that other School of Rock.
Cuz it was, like, all fake n shit.
Then again, even if Lightning Bolt was playing on these boats,
I dunno if I'd attend. When I was a lad I recall getting frightfully
seasick on a friend's boat and something tells me that now,
20 years later with the addition of alcohol, I may not fare
so well on the high seas.
