There's Something I've Been Meaning to Say to You

No, this post doesn't have any brand spakin' new buzzy news about Brendan Benson. I think he's still busy being a Raconteur. I have, on the other hand, been trying to figure out a study schedule that allows me to read, analyze, and retain information. Hegel is a rough read and Foucault is no joke. Really. Have you read Foucault? Check him out debating Noam Chomsky on the idea of human nature.* Moving on...


The other day, one of my classmates commented, "Yeah, Brendan Benson? I tried to get into him, but... not my thing. I don't get him."

"What?" I relied in obvious shock. "Brendan Beson? The crafter of pop gems that ooh and aah with sweet perfection?"

"I guess," he shrugged.

I guess? The above conversation is the result of a diet too heavy in Focault and not enough Benson. If my Last.fmchart updated itself--which it hasn't in the last 2 months--it would confess my current addiction with all things Brendan Benson. More specifically, my repeated listening of the song "Metarie." I'm not much for the line: "I've run out of gas and stuck like glue," so I prefer the "UK Version" from the song titled EP. It's not as "rocky," and has a little extra melancholy to it.

Brendan Benson: Metarie (UK Version)
Brendan Benson: Video of Benson and Chris Plum performing an acoustic version of "Metarie." It's very pretty, and makes you want to give Mr. Down-and-Out a hug.

Purchase various versions of "Metarie" and other perfectly crafted pop songs at Insound.

*Everything is on on Youtube. Even French philosophers. Crazy.

ick, i sympathize with you on the foucault & hegel. since school started i've been listening to nothing but punk rock with unintelligible lyrics because my brain is so overwhelmed with words right now. i think i've read essays by w. benjamin in 3 different classes so far, which is fantastic but overwhelming...

Ohh, you've just made my day! I've been listening to that song over and over again all the summer, but now I had almost forgotten it. So there's another version? I have to check it out!
Thanks alot!

This comment's super late - but yeah, the UK Version is the masterpiece - he hits all the right notes, literally - the way he sings certain lines ("Sometimes his life there makes me so jealous" for example) are far superior.

To add to the Lee Trust, numbering as it already does 67 persons, new members to represent the above-mentioned The North Face Sale interests, would in our opinion be to add to a body already far too large, and to render it incapable of efficient working. Still mere impracticable would it be to have two bodies; to retain the Lee Trust Shape Ups Shoes (whether in an independent or surbordinate position) for the exercise of their present function of regulating the navigation, and to create a Conservancy to watch over all the interests of the river except navigation. Unity of management, so desirable in all undertakings, is, in river administration, an absolute condition of success.We recommend that the Lee Trust cease to exist Shape Ups Boots except for the purpose of providing electors as herein-after mentioned ; that their powers, rights, and property be transferred to a Conservancy Board which shall have charge of all the interests connected with the rivers, and that on that Board the Lee Trust be largely represented. The present staff of the Lee Trust should be retained, and thus the Conservancy would be enabled to start on its career with a complement of officers of local knowledge, long experience, and tried ability. The present Chairman of the Lee Trust would preside over the Conservancy Board, and the leading members of the Trust would continue to be associated with him. But the multitude of those who are now but nominal members North Face Outlet of the Trust and who have no real concern in the undertaking would be superseded for all purposes except that of being electors, and be replaced by a limited number of active governors. In this way there might be established a good Avorking body, compact in its constitution Skechers Shoes and adequately representing all the interests of the river basin.We would propose a body not exceeding 15 in number, composed as under:—5 Members to represent the navigation (the first five to be the preseut Chairman of theLee Trust, with four of the existing Trustees to be elected by the existing body;future vacancies to be filled up by election by Members of Lee Trust.)1 Member to be nominated Discount G Star Sale by proprietors of Stort navigation.2 Members to represent the New River Company, viz., the Chairman, Deputy Chairman, or Treasurer, for the time being. 2 Members to represent the East London Waterworks Company. 2 Members to be appointed by the Corporation of the City of London. 1 Member to represent and be chosen by Traders on the Lee and the Stort.
