TOP 5 DREAMS OF 2008

5.) The one where I ask you to build me a deck and you do
4.) The one where I'm sailing a cheeseboat in a chocolate ocean and the moon is out
3.) The one where I am you and dressed sexy
2.) The one where I'm driving on the highway and it becomes a snake and the snake eats my car which is actually a bear with wheels, then we travel through time down the snake's body back to 1940 and make Hitler really fat via the pizza gun in the glove compartment until he turns into a balloon and floats into space but space has a ceiling and he just sits there for decades as I high five myself
1.) The one where I ask you to build me a deck and you do, right on top of the first deck

It's not really fair to list "Massive Headache" as a best album... it's really just a compilation from earlier Fauntleroys EPs "Big Blister" and "Huge Hernia". Likewise, I don't think you're giving a fair shake to "Skinny Feeling Blues". Those guys aren't the original Tanks... just a bunch of studio guys from LA.

That deck is built our of dream wood. Watch your step.

Man, I love the lyrics to "This Is Not A Stick Anymore".

This, this is not a stick
You'd better, you'd better think quick
Cause this, this is a rock
I'm gonna wrap it, wrap it up in a sock

anymore, anymore, anymore (said yeah)
anymore, anymore, anymore (say what?)
anymore, anymore, anymore (good god)
anymore, anymore, stick

Slippery Mom Bag is soooo overrated. Just because Pitchfork gave them a rating of "guacamole!" on a scale of 1 to 10 -- what does that even mean?

The number 2 is also overrated. Sellout!
