A painting of me


   17 December 2005, mid-afternoon

I bought R.E.M.’s greatest hits album Thursday night. I had heard it playing at the Yellow Griffin a few weeks back, and wanted to get it ever since. In the liner notes for the album Peter Buck explains the back-story for each song. he has this to say about Orange Crush:

I must have played this song onstage over three hundred times, and I still don’t know what the fuck it’s about.

The album is really good. I’m enjoying it a lot.



Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
