I think it’d be easier if I just got +311 upvotes :)

Ha! I posted the same sentiment as you at the same time.

This song is magical.

So glad this is out there in the world now!

It’s the B-side on the promo 10″ they gave to record stores. I love “Do You” and “Rent I Pay” but the look on my face when I heard “Inside Out” had to of been priceless. The fact this is going to be the 2nd track on the album reminds me of “The Ghost of You Lingers” placement on Ga x5. This can only be a good thing.

“Inside Out” has ramped my excitement up for “They Want My Soul” 100%

I think the only way to appreciate “Raditude” and “Hurley” is if you accept that “Make Believe” is total garbage. It’s not so much a dog pile as it is a mutual agreement that “Make Believe” was rock bottom and everything else HAS to be better than that.

If the song “We Are All on Drugs” isn’t rock bottom, what is?

I don’t see how it’s unpopular, 311 is everybody’s favorite band here.

I’ll share it with you! What a great moment in your life! I was supremely late to Spiritualized (2008) and had a very similar reaction. Namely, “WHY DID IT TAKE ME THIS LONG TO HEAR THIS MASTERPIECE!”

I was so affected by it, I ponied up the dough to see them play the whole thing in its entirety in London. Totally worth it, as seeing that album performed by a 37-piece band is how it should be done.

“Cop Shoot Cop…” is one of the greatest last tracks of all time. I highly recommend “Pure Phase” next. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. But Ladies and Gentlemen is still a great definition of required listening.

Absolutely. I’d call it my first real “Oh shit, Perfume Genius is really fucking good” moment.

I’ve loved Weird Al for 2 decades, but the “Queen” video is masterful. We’ll be talking about it at the end of the year.

Actually Yankovic is credited as Writer/Director/Editor. The shitty green screen effects are definitely reminiscent to T&E’s aesthetic. I know Tim, Eric & Al are mutual friends because there are definite parallels with their humor.

I’d almost guarantee T&E were influenced by UHF to some degree. Plus, Eric has evolved so much as a director that I couldn’t see him doing something this campy anymore. You can see his improvement from FlyLo’s “Parisian Goldfish” (still a masterpiece in my book) to Beach House’s “Wishes”.
