UHH… SCUUZ ME?? Think I’m in love with Nathan Williams. If you haven’t heard “Cool Jumper” or “Mickey Mouse” yet, get on it! Mark your iCal for 8/3/10.

This is a live demo of a newish Wavves song. It sounds closer to his last two albums then his other new leaked demos have, but he did channel his inner One-ders and record it in a church, so that makes it worth a listen if nothing else. Plus, it’s Wavves, so it’s always worth a listen.

That’s right, today marks the 80th birthday of the original spokesman (spokesmouse?) for alternative fuels. This may seem at odds with what we tend to write about, but what’s more pop culture than Mickey Mouse? Well, that and the Jo[nas] Bro[ther]s, but they have enough stories about them. On top of that, this is also a sounding board for whatever we think is cool, and I am obsessed with two things: American Flags and Mickey Mouse. I can’t explain either one of them other than because they are the absolute core of Americana. They kick the shit out of boring-ass baseball and nasty-ass apple pie. Fuck that shit. It’s not so much the character (though I do love the early character, the modern Mickey is annoying, not funny, and boring) but the icon. And when you boil it down, isn’t that all America really is?
