There Is No Cat

A huge orangupoid, which no man can conquer

Is it good? Is it bad? Is it free?

About a month ago, I posted that Tall Dwarfs were coming to America for the first time in thirteen years. In the comments, my lovely wife opined that the best of all the various and sundry songs by said combo was "Crush". (Personally, I have a different favorite, but I concede that Crush is pretty damned awesome.) Well, now WFMU, every hipster's favorite radio station/blog, in honor of their triumphant return, has posted an MP3 of the band playing "Crush" live in their studios on their last trip to these shores. Hie thee hence and snarf!

Did you succumb or something at the Tall Dwarfs?

Nope, just went away for an extended weekend the morning after the Tall Dwarfs show and didn't use the computer. It was fantastic.

Oh yes, Crush is great. Hey, love the new design.

Chris and Alec must think so; they closed their set at the Bowery Ballroom last Wednesday with it (assisted by some of the members of headlines Olivia Tremor Control). It's also the last track on the live tour-only CD of a show they did for Radio New Zealand.

(Thanks for the kind comment on the redesign, too, Deb.)

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio

There used to be a cat
