Don’t seem funny, and it

Filed under:General — eric @ 3:44 am

Don’t seem funny, and it don’t seem right,
sittin’ on my bed on a Friday night.
It seems the wheatie back penny ought to call you more than that.
Everything’s fine and I can’t complain
except my legs feel funny and I got this pain
like a wheatie back penny stuck inside my brain again…


Words of wisdom from The Ant Farmers. I understand there’s a new album out — maybe with the magic of the internet, I can get a copy way out here in Athens. More Ant Farmers links: a review of their last album, Beautician. I got the very first CD from the very first box opened at their CD release party. Also, a review of a show I attended back in 1997. I can vouch for the zanyness of the drunk dancin’ fellow. Finally, though this has nothing to do with the band The Ant Farmers, a history of the Cadillac Ranch outside of Amarillo, Texas. The Cadillac Ranch is a number of cadillacs buried nose-first in the ground. Pretty neat to see, really. It was conceived by members of the San Francisco art collective The Ant Farm.

  1. My favorite Ant Farmers song:
    clear part is the water and the brown part is the land
    the clear part she is breathing filled with glass and bits of sand
    all the body and the breathing in the bottom of her jaw
    the part that I was leaving I was singing what she saw
    breathing water, breathing water, breathing water, breathing water
    the anger she was breeding in the wet part of her hand
    was the part that I was grieving that I didn’t understand
    that the barbie in the bathtub had a wet spot in her lung
    the clear part she was breathing was the song that barbie sung
    breathing water, breathing water, breathing water, breathing water
    clear part is the water and the brown part is the land
    until she started biting all the fingers off her hand
    like the brain collected moisture in the bottom of her jaw
    like the clear part she was breathing like the blue part that I saw

    “Breathing Water”
