Pavement likes Sports

And I like Pavement. I like sports too, just less than I used to. Although my addiction to pro basketball is enormous by any standards. Pavement lead singer Stephen Malkmus also happens to be an NBA fiend.

He will be pulling the group back together for several shows in NYC shortly. I will not go. But thanks to the folks at Pitchfork I can watch the documentary The Slow Century over and over again...at least this week. And you can too. If you like Pavement or Sports.

My fav Pavement cut...

Go back to those gold sounds
And keep my advent to your self
Because it's nothing I don't like
Is it a crisis or a boring change?

When it's central, so essential
It has a nice ring when you laugh
At the low life opinions
And they're coming to the chorus now

I keep my address to yourself
'Cause we need secrets
We need secrets, cret, cret, cret, crets
Back right now

Because I never wanna make you feel
That you're social
Never ignorant soul
Believe in what you wanna do

And do you think that is a major flaw
When they rise up in the falling rain
And if you stay around with your knuckles ground down
The trial's over, weapon's found

Keep my address to myself
Because it's secret
'Cause it's secret, cret, cret, cret
Cret, cret, cret, cret, cret, cret, cret, cret, cret
Back right now

So drunk in the August sun
And you're the kind of girl I like
Because you're empty and I'm empty
And you can never quarantine the past

Did you remember in December
That I won't eat you when I'm gone
And if I go there, I won't stay there
Because I'm sitting here too long

I've been sitting here too long
And I've been wasted
Advocating that word for the last word
Last words come up, all you've got to waste

I like Pavement and sports! Holy shnikey's! What up dog, you going to the lake on Stephinator's birthday?

Check out the post I am putting up on Jay Feeely (the Jets kicker).

Lets get the band together,

Peace...

No doubt. I would love to hang. Football is boring. Yanks look real tough though. I am all about NBA preseason hoops. A couple sleepers who are looking amazing...

Will Bynum Detroit Pistons
Dejuan Blair SA Spurs
Brook Lopez NJ nets
Anthony Morrow Warriors
Roy Hibbert Indiana Pacers

I will give a shout this afternoon. Sounds like things were rough down at Devens. Time to hang em up nad focus on underwater basket weaving. Get em next time.
