This little history of the making of Terror Twilight is a bit thin but has some fun tidbits. My favourite was this quote from Spiral:
Stephen would start playing us a song, and I’m like, “Dude! I don’t think in 20 years I’ll even know how to play that chord!” I still don’t!
As the weather turns cooler I am, once again, toying with the idea of starting up the old blog again. I’ve been on a Twittergram hiatus for the last couple of months and, although it has been nice to get away from the noisy buzz, I feel like it would be nice to have someplace to say something. So here we go.
I’ve been listening to and thinking about Pavement a lot recently — partly due to the upcoming release of the extended Terror Twilight but also just because that’s what my brain does. Here’s one thought: Just as crispy hard towels are better than soft ones, the fast version of Harness Your Hopes beats the slow one that’s so popular. The new video is fun, though, and a nice reminder that Pavement were always just very silly.
