Vol. 1 Brooklyn

Dear Apple Store on 103 Prince Street,

I hate you.

You aren’t really a store that sells technological appliances (though really you are). But really you are a late 80s/early 90s San Francisco-style bathhouse that sponsors unprotected sodomy orgies 24/7 and even on holidays, like Presidents’ Day.

Stop being so bisexual, Brooklyn, weird, and a host of other disgusting symbols.

PS, Baby Jong-il hates you too.

Malkmus for the People! at Volume1


Do you think it's gonna make him change?

The great Jason Diamond of Vol 1. decided to celebrate the announcement of next year’s Pavement reunion by asking a handful of people to cite their favorite of the band’s lyrics. Those polled included Ari Messer of The Rumpus, Jens Carstensen from The Giraffes, and a few other notables, including Gigantic-editor (and Giant frequenter) James Yeh and yours truly. In fact, James and I both went a little apeshit, so you’ll find our annotated selections down at the bottom, below the civilized metered discourse.
