Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To


Go read this. It’s the great Jesse Jarnow on Phosh and how they taught the world to noodle dance, and pay extra for camping. It’s from Pitchfork‘s quarterly (Biennial? Bi-annual? Buy anal?) collection of their fanciest writing, and FoTotD Jesse is included; congrats to him.

If you like that, then go buy his book Heads: A Phrase After The Colon at Amazon. I promise that neither the hardcover nor softcover versions of the tome contain typesetting like this:

You can’t make it out, but the sentence starting at Mike Gordon’s head calls me a genius. True story.


  1. I need cliff notes for that Jesse article.

    Is that article pro-Phish or anti-Phish? Pro Fest or anti Fest?

    What is he saying, in one sentence?

    No criticism meant, Love Jesse’s book. Just not sure what this article is saying.

    That is the worst layout of a web page I’ve encountered in quite a while. I’m sure I could find worse on MySpace; I guess I thought Pitchfork was a step above that, but perhaps I fell for the hype again. If you highlight the text, you CAN read it, but why should you have to? A solid article; thanks for the link.
