This song from the album was my introduction to them, and it is weird and kind of irritating and strangely catchy and perfectly encapsulates Ween.
So you can’t tell if you’ll like any other Ween songs based on this one. And if, like me, you haven’t see the video in twenty years, check it out had lots of locations and historical photo-op type things.
JR is more about money and sex, and the internet doesn’t have many pictures of either, right. When we left off, JR was trying to persuade Bast to help him out some more.
But she insists that he look after all the kids while she takes off and returns home. When Dan gets to school, all the educational equipment is gone.
In Casa di Cephalis she runs around turning all the lights on (this would be the era of “When Not in Use Turn Off the Juice– I had that sticker on my light switch all through grade school and high school). Vogel starts going on about Mrs James Watt (he thinks she must have been something to look at: push pull, push pull). While he is talking, Dan looks at Vogel’s suit and realizes that it is his own.
Amy is delighted that Crawley is “patronizing the arts” and even more that he’s asking Bast to do a commission for him. She replies “There’s nothing I can do until all this with Lucien is settled and I can..,” and in another great play with names, he replies, “This Joubert you mean, yes.” [Crawley, it is her name too…] (307).
She’s about to run after her class, when Crawley mentions that Beaton is trying to pick up Nobili stocks to give Joubert a hard time.
And, holy, he needs Bast to meet Mister Piscator out by the Egyptian stuff in the museum (JR can’t do it himself obviously–I love that he is using a handkerchief on the phone and everyone asks if there’s connection troubles).
Bast barely says anything but JR is on a roll: he got him the briefcase and that alarm clock (which runs backwards) and the business cards (which Simon pointed out I’ve been missing the typo on) and “I’ll call up that Virginia and fix it up where you get her to take telephone calls at the cafet…” (302).
I have a bunch of Ween’s earlier stuff, but stopped listening after their hits.
I’m told some of their later records are quite good.
JR is also going on about the kind of massive tax breaks he (and Bast) will be able to declare.
