Vinyl Side 2 of Zen Arcade is one of my favorite things in the world. Each song is terrific, but, I think they work best together as one unit.
Maybe you’ve never heard the record, or maybe you already treasure it as much as I do. Either way, toss it on your iPod and get ready for eighteen minutes and twenty seconds of paint-peeling rock n’ roll from a band at the height of their powers.
Happy Hüsker New Year.

James: If you ever run at me and try to jump into my arms, there’s a good chance that I won’t catch you.
James: (valley girl voice) ’That looks comfy!’ Let me just put this blanket on the fuckin’ rocks. He really knows how to treat a lady. Hey there are chairs everywhere but this blanket on the rocks seems better.
James: Sitting on the fucking floor. Enough of that, right Emily?

James: Personal breakdowns.
James: She’s all snotty.
James: That makeup is totally waterproof, it doesn’t come off at all.
James: On American Idol if they exploit your tragedy and your house- you’re in! On Bachelor if they show you whining and crying -you’re out!
James: If there wasn’t a camera there that guy would be running, running like a bastard.
James: I hope they have their shots.
James: I’m totally going on the Bachelor next season.
James: I have a lot to offer these ladies.
James: Wait, no wonder this show takes so fucking long. He has a stash of roses. This show should take a week, tops.

James: Look at how many girls he has left, is this going to be on until July?
James: Awesome they’re all breaking down.
James: Wait the Kardashian’s have another show now? That’s how I know the Mayan Calendar is real. End of fucking days. I bet there’s a carving, a glyph of Kim and her fucking sister on the Mayan calendar. But not the giant one, because they would have thought she was a monster.
