gijoe man on the marta tracks

This is actually something I’ve (sort of) done before, but have been tempted to do several times. I’ve always loved songs like Sonic Youth’s “In The Kingdom 19” ¬†or the Minutemen’s “Take 5, D” – songs with spoken word over them, or songs with found lyrics that have a weird poetry to them.

So that’s why I have thought occasionally about making songs from tweets.

And that’s what this is: http://twitter.com/vomikronnoxis/status/12068252341

This isn’t really as much a found piece of poetry, because I think Rob intended it to be read that way. But that’s why I liked twitter anyway.

Hopefully I’ll have more stuff up soon.
