Dude has a great sense of humor, though admittedly of the dark variety.

And by the way, if you ever see/hear Wilco perform this song live you’ll love their version again.

Dr. Virago: I know, I know. Fratguy is Mr. Wilco around here. The middle-aged depression and drug addiction pose is just too depressing for me. (I liked A.M., but that was a long time ago, when I was in my 20s and it seemed funny to listen to peppy songs about drunk driving.) Is Tweedy a version of what Kurt Cobain would have become if he hadn’t offed himself at 27?

FWIW, I think the original is *supposed* to sound like a suicide note, or at least like what it feels like to love a seriously depressed person. I get that, anyway.

I was lucky enough to see JC in a Chicago production of Passing Strange — he was amazing, and this is exactly the push I need to track down more of his stuff.

You just made my morning. FWIW, I like the Wilco version, too, but this is way fun.

I have a new theme song. (Replacing: Midnight Oil’s Forgotten Years and Joan Jett’s Bad Reputation which never coexisted all that well).
