I forgot, last night, I dreamt of Greil Marcus. In the dream I was at SXSW, and Julianne and I were at a show, and we see Griel Marcus, who was actually like Christgau at 80, with David Fricke/Dorothy Hammill's haircut. We keep seeing Greil at all these shows and he keeps asking us what we think. Later we find this little steno book on the ground, and soon realize looking through it, with all of it's notes on what me and Julianne are into, what we think etc etc -- that it's Greil's and he is ripping off all of our ideas because we are young, cool and have impeccable taste. We keep the notebook so that he cannot take cop our wild styles and take credit for our ideas.
Julianne pointed out, in real life, that this description of "Christgau with Fricke's hair" describes what most every white rock critic in America actually looks like.Posted by Jessica at April 5, 2004 06:01 PM | TrackBack
