Shaun directed my attention to Adult.‘s cover of Tuxedomoon‘s “No Tears.” I used to argue that Nicola Kuperus‘ dispassionate vocals (on display here) are better, but these days I do not care, I will take it all. Actually, that is a lie. Right now I am having a difficult time listening to any music, but especially (especially!) music I like and enjoy. My goal is to listen to every episode of This American Life, every episode from the past 14 years, in chronological order. Hopefully once I am finished with this task I will feel differently. Hopefully something beyond a cult following will be the result of all that ironic storytelling. Personal results may vary.
Tonight I will be in Detroit.
