For my English major homies.

When in doubt, going with either Bronté on a slow day can’t be held with too much reproach:

“It is a very strange sensation to inexperienced youth to feel itself quite alone in the world, cut adrift from every connection, uncertain whether the port to which it is bound can be reached, and prevent by many impediments from returning to that it has quitted. The charm of adventure sweetens that sensation, the glow of pride warms it; but then the throb of fear disturbs it.”

From Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronté


And also, a Random Question: Why am I always a decade or so behind on the music? Because Cake? They are oh so groovy.

  2. E says:

    Fashion Nugget by Cake was the second CD I ever bought. Good times. Yes, I have all their albums.

    I never did finish Jane Eyre. Bad juju.

  3. firewings says:

    Yeah Cake is listed with They Might Be Giants in Wikipedia. Now that is bad juju.

  4. E says:

    They Might Be Giants bad juju?!? Say it ain’t so.

  5. firewings says:

    It is most assuredly so.

  6. J says:

    I think you just have an affinity for cake.

    eeeeeee, yuckies, me no likey They Might Be Giants, but my husband adores them so. Maybe while he’s away I can delete it from his computer so I can never hear it again…he shouldn’t miss it. hehehe.

    I hear they write good music for the Pre-K crowd…

  9. thebutton says:

    I wouldn’t even subject the most destructive/naughty child to TMBG for punishment. 😛

  10. E says:

    Pre-K crowd? C’mon. Sure they made that one album of kids music, but anybody that can write a song like Ana Ng has to be awesome.

  11. eatsbugs says:

    haha! Well, I heard after that one album, they’ve taken a job writing for some show. I could be all wet on that, but hey, ever-body gots ta get payd!

  12. The Rebuker says:

    a) Cake (the food and the band) rocks.
    b) They Might Be Giants indeed writes music for a Playhouse Disney show called “Higgly Town Heroes,” which is about a town peopled exclusively by lovable nesting dolls. Conflicts arise. The everyday hero triumphs. Catchy TMBG theme song plays over credits. Normally I hate TMBG (I don’t think I carry the gene that allows me to appreciate such elevated levels of quirkiness) but their pre-K sound is pretty good.
    c)Is this not a post about the inimitable glory of the Bronte family? Viva la moody, British moor-hoppers!
