The Days Were As Long As We Thought Them Right (Chief Red Fox’s Song) (mp3)

on this day, some time ago was Chief Red Fox
I called him friend, said Buffalo Bill’s leaving town tonight
said he’s looking for a man who knows right from right
oh the days were simple in the valley, they were all right
oh the days were as long as we thought them right

 

on this day, some time ago was Chief Red Fox
I called him friend, he was 14 when he met McCloud
and soon the Wild West Show came and his men were found
said we’re looking for a new life in Tinseltown
oh the days were simple in the valley, they were all right
oh the days were simple in the valley, they were all right
oh the days were as long as we thought them right

judd apatow’s Superbad opened this past weekend and it seems like the film is well on its way to becoming a popular and critical success. this success is great because not only will apatow’s midas streak continue (and hopefully garner interest in his other amazing works like Freaks and Geeks or Undeclared), but also many will get to witness the great michael “mikey” cera in all his glory. and since the masses will surely demand all things cera, now seems like a great time to re-recommend Clark and Michael. with the equally charming clark duke (who also had a lovely cameo in Superbad and can be seeing holding it up on Greek), these short 10 minute webisodes are nuggets of comedy gold. the two play frankenstein versions of their real selves, trying to pitch a show that the duo wrote.

since i can’t really do justice to the show by describing it, i’ll mention some of the places the duo have wined and dined at instead (what?). and i personally find this to be of great interest because 1)i love to eat, and 2)i’ve actually been to the joints on occasion. you know, it’s like i’m part of the gang, but not.

Canter’s Deli
419 N. Fairfax Ave. Los Angeles, CA

” Canter’s Delicatessen has been a Los Angeles landmark since 1931. Complete breakfast, lunch, dinner menu available 24 hours. Fresh baked goods available from our bakery. Full bar and Cocktail Lounge.” the menu is sprawling. i can count on not being able to decide what to eat every time because there are just so many things to choose from. the lounge connected to the deli frequently hosts live music. canter’s is definitely a favorite place to be; many memorable post-bar hopping dining experiences to recall fondly.

The Dime
442 N. Fairfax Ave. Los Angeles, CA

one of my friends had a birthday outing at the dime, partly because it was walking distance from her apartment meaning that we would be able to drink and walk back without a cab. it turns out, the dime is one happening place. i remember they had a great DJ who played some grooving tracks. it’s half dive bar, half hipster hang out (i guess). it’s nice to go to a place with non-hassle no cover access. just a sea of young people, elbowing their way for a couple drinks.

finally, go watch the show. they are just a couple of sweet guys that know what they’re doing. and Superbad.

here’s a demo of a new song called, “Child.” i was inspired to be more open with lyrics, without being cryptic. and as such, it’s a bit special to me. like all other demos, arrangements might change and might not. i’m hoping to fix up and figure out the kinks by performing sometime soon.
