So my friend Thor comes in, with Notwist and Minutemen CDs in hand, returns them to me, and say "Thank you, Brian Nicholson, for the fiber-optic CDs that you gave me." It was pretty fucking awesome. This followed up two incidents of attempted references in conversation for the other person's benefit that the other person missed. The first, being my advice to a sad friend that "maybe partying will help" a reference which now makes sense because he's heard Double Nickels On The Dime. The other being his reference to Shellac's Prayer To God, "just fucking kill him" which was pretty subtle, but I don't listen to Shellac, so I didn't catch it, even though I know about that song.
Here's the point: We are some cool cats.
