"We Can't All Be Wedding Cake."

I love this tune! It's a good wake-up-and-face-whatever-bullshit-the-world's-throwing-your-way-today kind of a song. Their label is Merge Records, which appears to still be a small label and represents acts such as Arcade Fire and Buzzcocks.

This clip is from The Late Show. Whatever you think of Dave, he appreciates good music of all genres and Paul Schaeffer is a gifted arranger and band leader. Also, when not completely rattled by insomnia, I tend to go to sleep with them most nights -- so maybe I'm biased.

I just heard on the radio that Spoon is playing a New Year's show at Metro or somewhere. Sounds like a ton of fun, but it will most likely cost about a bajillion dollars (well, maybe a hundred dollars). I need a sugar daddy if I ever plan to have a rock and roll lifestyle.

You should know that your older nephew's M-side cousins or uncles or something is in Spoon. Mary is always telling us that.
