truth is baby, it's a lie-lie-lie-lie
The Hives' Pelle Almqvist thinks to himself, "See the idiot walk, see the idiot talk..."
Asl promised, here is The Hives' performance of "Walk Idiot Walk" from the June 24 Pepsi Smash. It's the first single from the upcoming Tyrannosaurus Hives LP, due to be released July 20. Over @ Kingblind there's a link to download an MP3 of the song, if you're interested. It's lovely, Swedish-punk-rock goodness. The Hives also played "Hate To Say I Told You So" (from Veni Vidi Vicious) to close the show, but I wasn't planning on posting it. If you really wanna see it, be sure to leave me comments saying so.
My pals Rachel & Sam are boardgame afficionados. Since they are also big Lord of the Rings fans, Rachel received the LOTR edition of Risk, the game of world domination, a few months back for her birthday. Somehow it got mentioned on Sunday, so we played it for the first time on Monday. The LOTR version is like regular Risk, with a whole lot of additional variables to help confuse any rational person. As per usual, my strategy was lacking & maintaining my will to compete was a struggle. Rachel, who I teamed up with on the fellowship/"good" side & is usually fiercely competitive, quickly got annoyed with the tedious nature of the game, proclaiming it to be "no fun." Still, we fought the good fight as long as we could, but Sam & Mike took their evil forces & destroyed us, and everything good in the world.
They were evil-doers. They hated us because we love freedom.
