The world needs more Belle and Sebastian cover bands.
"This is a sad song about tigers. Let's champion the tigers. I was in a cab in Toronto the other day, and the CBC was on, and they were talking to a lady who specializes in animal husbandry. She takes care of the tigers at the Toronto Zoo.
And they said, "Well, do you ever reintroduce the tigers?" And she goes, "Well, no, because their habitat can't sustain them.?
And immediately I thought to myself, 'There's so many extra children. We could just feed the children to these tigers. We don't need them. We're not doing anything with them.'
Tigers are noble and sleek. Children are loud and messy. If I was one of those children, if I were to become tiger food, it would've been more noble than?well, anyway, probably ruined the song for you now, but we'll still play it for you anyway."
--Neko Case, "Tigers are Noble"
so impressed by gary oldman. slightly skeptical of the portrayal of nancy. little too close to every other cliche crazy-bitch rocker girlfriend (deborah curtis, courtney love, etc.). who knows, though. i haven't done my research.
