Fun Fact of the Day
Before becoming a pop star, Ke$ha attended Black Lips shows.
Actually, probably not. Cole crafted an elaborate story about how Ke$ha’s brother is in Cheap Time and is tight with Be Your Own Pet and Black Lips opened for that band and thus Ke$ha saw the Lips.

Quick Thought On Lyrics
I don’t really pay attention to lyrics…not going to lie. Even if I get to know them, I usually don’t look into them. It does depend on the song, though. Fast and heavy garage rockers or punk jams are just too intense to keep up with while slower post-punkies like shit from The Walkmen are more digestible lyrically. So yeah chances I don’t care or know what most songs I listen to are about. Whatever!
