Here’s some life advice from EL-P

Do you ever wonder if there’s more to life than dull routine? Are you tired of trying to increase the dramatic tension in your banal and mundane daily activities via the addition of Hannibal-esque sound effects, primarily made by dropping bags of marbles down the stairs while tapping chopsticks on tin cans? Do you long for Death’s icy embrace but lack the determination and strength of character to free yourself from the pale husk of mortality in which you are housed?
Me neither, I was just asking for a friend.
Anyway, since we’re both just hanging out, scrubbing dishes or hand washing our respective lingerie I thought I’d provide us with some music. Something to listen to later while we’re doing our 30 minute Tracy Anderson dance cardio DVDs or waiting for leftovers to reheat.
I intend to enjoy the songs, but you don’t have to. The choice is yours. Life as we know it will continue to grind us into dust regardless, though, so I say grab a little comfort where you may.

Yeah, I guess we’re just strangers.

At long last, after decades of struggle, I have managed to find an outfit that so casually straddles the line between “hella butch blue-collar meathead” and “campy gay on laundry day” that literally every person I passed on the street today gave me the up-and-down.

All things to all people, people.

There is no line.

Until the end of time.

These blurbs are great.

Lady bug dicks, people. We’re living in the future.

I wrote a thing for some people. It is available, along with four other worthwhile essays/articles/etceteras, with full audio accompaniment and photos, for a whopping 99 cents. If you’d like to read 3500 words about Glasgow, padlocks, and junkies (or just listen to some professional narrator guy with a horrible snarky voice read it), click here.
As you can see, the next story is about skyping with David Lynch, which sounds like a worthwhile read to me.
I don’t know if you need an iPhone/iPad/iDevice to read it or not, but considering I saw a homeless guy with a iPhone 4 last week I’m just assuming everyone’s got one and it’s a moot point.
If you just want to go get a beer and have me read it to you that’s cool too, but the beer will be £1.25 minimum and you’ll probably have to fly to Scotland so it’s more cost-effective to just download it.

I don’t know. I have so many strong reservations. Should I go and perform mutilations?
