a quarter of dank bud.. maybe a few bucks like 30-50??? i reeeeaaaaallllllyyyyy want to see the lips this weekend. they are the best band evaaaa.. i also will bring supply some french onion sun chips and an iced tea..
Those big balloons are really sooooo coooooooool when you’re baked. And that’s where the Sun Chips come in. Makes sense I suppose. Then again, you’d have to be stoned to give up your Lips ticket for such a dubious offer.
In more compelling Lips tips, this Thursday Yahoo! premieres the “Yeah Yeah Yeah Song” video (directed by Traktor, who did that freaky Basement Jaxx clip with the monkeys). Some stills:
Wayne explains the song on flaminglips.com:
“This is one of those songs that points the finger at the pettiness of those in power but also points the finger back at ourselves – what would YOU do? Power in the hands of the inexperienced (which is what we would be) is very dangerous.”
So that’s why he’s dressed as King. As for the angry obese … maybe a nod to Olivia Newton-John?
Oh, and the video will have a LION in it. Will the Lips/YYYs coincidences never cease? Man, imagine if Karen O joined them onstage in a giant bubble.
Anyone else seeing (or trying to see) the Lips’ existential space rock this weekend? Stereogum has no dank bud to trade, but we will do our darndest to be there.
