Today Skyler and I headed down to Waterfront park because there would be sounds there that we wanted to hear. Specifically, the sound made by The Thermals. I heard a bit of The Corin Tucker Band, who were shredding. Then Sky and I hucked some discs around trying not to hit the few people sitting here and there on the lawn south of the Morrison Bridge.
We had some time to kill between sets, so we grabbed a beer at the Yamhill Pub. You can see it on the eastbound MAX near 2nd Ave. It always looks extra divey from the outside, with an ancient and charmingly dilapidated green awning. It’s full of character and characters: a real hold-out, dingy, poor-man’s bar. Plus, don’t forget the bikers and various punk types. It did not disappoint. We seemed to be in everyone’s way at the bar, so I asked a half-full table if we could join them. The two fellows were gracious enough, but the completely wasted girl was abrasive in a way I’m sure she thought was charming. Telling us that we looked like “fags” was not at all charming, and not for the reason she thought. If you go, stick to people who look as if they’re still going to be vertical in an hour’s time. Among literally hundreds of graffiti in the bathroom I found a Minor Threat quote: “At least I’m fucking trying; what the fuck have you done?” The jukebox ranges from Ella Fitzgerald to Bikini Kill, from Tom Waits to Nick Cave to The Sword. I didn’t put on any Ella Fitzgerald; the vibe wasn’t right.
After The Thermals we returned with a few others in tow and ended up singing TV theme songs. For some reason Sky didn’t want to give up a high five when I busted out the chorus of “The Greatest American Hero.” Believe it or not I’m walking on air…

Mr. Rogers drops knowledge; gets remixed
Arctic Monkeys - R U Mine?
You should probably put this in your ears right away. Unless for some reason you need not to be rocking out right now (music begins at 0:23).
What the fuck did I just watch?
I understood the tits. Mostly.

Happy news! I felt like hearing this song, and through some wikipedia work I find out that Cannibal Ox did not break up after their first album as I’d thought.

Love this video. Get ready for a WTF if you haven’t seen it.
