Aloe Blacc Listens to the Velvet Underground

I'm tired of looking at, hearing, and reading about LeBron's decision to get a new job. Even when a photo of rob is involved. I am accordingly bumping yesterday's post. Maybe this will get me fired.

Here's Aloe Blacc's soulful take (in 3/4 waltz time?!) on the Velvet Underground's "Femme Fatale."

The first time I ever heard this song was an R.E.M. B-side cover of it in the '80s. This version is just slightly different than that version.

John Wall pulled a groin (his own) in his first practice with the Wizards. Not . . . boding . . . well . . .

Am I the only one in the GTB treehouse today? Helloooooo?

Yeah, I have a ton of work to do, too, but I am immensely hung
over and I'd rather take part in the usual juvenilia than do it.

I got a chicken schnitzel sandwich with spicy mayo from the schnitzel truck and now I have insane heartburn. It messes with my blogging.

Igor said...

Food from a truck. Oh yeah. Like beer from the Irish Times taps or action from a Bolivian call girl -- you love it when it's going down, but you will feel the burn later.

Can I crash chez Igor on the 28th and get a ride to obft on the 29th?

It just ain't Femme Fatale without Nico. No offense, Stipe. Or Aloe Blacc (whoever the fuck you are).

F of G:TB Vitas is getting married in an hour. I'm the best man. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to say during my speech at the reception but I know I'm taking a shot a FSU football during said speech (Vitas' wife went to FSU). Wish me luck boys.

Dave said...

if you're asking me for advice on doing a best man's toast, I suggest mentioning bodily fluids and/or castration . . . but I might not be the one to ask.

You there for NBA Summer League? World Series of Poker? General celeb stalking?

Igor said...

Zman... sure.

Rob, Dave... welcome back, hope you felchers enjoyed P-town.

Nobody has much to say on the World Cup final, eh? USA or nothing.

T.J. said...

It was a shitty first half, featuring five yellow cards (one of which should have been a red for kung fu kicking).

rob said...

i'm listening to the match on the radio as we drive home. tommy smyth is pissed at both teams.
