Then they get swarmed with e-mails. "I want to by the Sevens boxed set, but I can't find it. Can you send me a link?"

Been away for too long from here (no Soundgarden quote :lol: ), so I don't know if you already talked about it...

I really like to find the meanings. There are subjective meanings, that ones that you construct, but there are the objective meaning, the one that the writer wanted to make it sound.

But there's something that is really getting me mad:

What the hell is Lightning Bolt (the song) about?! Who is she? What is that phenomenal thing that happens? It is poetry, but I can't be just words...anyone? Besides, that's the name of the album, there must be something.

The l-bolt may not (in fact probably is not) a person, as much as it is a kind of destructive inspiration. it may be embodied by a person, easily enough, but it's not really about one (imo)

He wanted to portray the urge to create in the least creative way possible, so he represented it with a woman. That didn't feel cliche enough, though, so he went on to portray HER in an equally overdone manner.

Layered lazy writing about an obsessive love of writing. Sort of brilliant, in a way.

I took it as you "muse", someone who inspires a change, like Winslet's character in Eternal Sunshine.

But that's not bad.



This is bad, unless you are 11 years old:

It's okay to defend something by just pointing out that you think it's good, instead of saying they've done things that bad before.

I quite like the lyrics in both songs, give or take a line or two.

"We need a commercial."

"Why?"

"Exactly. But how should we do it?"

"No, I asked why."

"Maybe. But we need to be cutting edge and hip, and not look like we're ripping everybody off. What is cutting edge?"

"WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?"

"No! Even better! I saw this really hip commercial 13 years ago. I think it was for bp or old people pills or something. There were hands and folded paper and shit all over it."

"I'm sending out resumes. Can I use you as a reference?"

"I think so, too!"
