There is a story that has stuck with me about how John Lennon first met Yoko Ono:
“there was another piece that really decided me for-or-against the artist: a ladder which led to a painting which was hung on the ceiling. It looked like a blank canvas with a chain with a spyglass hanging on the end of it. This was near the door when you went in. I climbed the ladder, you look through the spyglass and in tiny little letters it says ‘yes’. So it was positive. I felt relieved. It’s a great relief when you get up the ladder and you look through the spyglass and it doesn’t say ‘no’ or ‘fuck you’ or something, it said ‘yes’.”
My husband and I seem to have songs from Bob’s Burgers stuck in our heads lately. I was looking for the Thanksgiving episode so my husband could hear the Thanksgiving song sailors in your mouth.
I hit gold when I found a version done by The National that is AMAZING!!
Apparently there is a project called Bob’s Buskers.
Through its three seasons, Bob’s Burgers has had a lot of fun coming up with silly little ditties. Phase two of these tunes’ histories is what the show is calling “Bob’s Buskers.” The series will feature prominent artists like Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields covering Bob’s Burgers’ songs. In turn, one of the show’s animators then uses their version to make videos of the artists busking in front of the Bob’s Burgers storefront. First up is St. Vincent covering a song from the season two episode “Bad Tina,” in which Tina starts hanging out with bad girl Tammy.
Finished reading A Virtuous Woman by Kaye Gibbons and The Laws Of Money by Suze Orman. When I finish reading a book, I post most of them on Paperbackswap.com. I also can’t get the Bun Jingle from Bob’s burgers out of my head. I’m seriously considering making it my phone ringtone.
Luckily someone posted it online so I can listen to it over and over and over again.
