one of the songs is loosely based on this
So I was in this nursing class the other day and the lady told this story I’m going to sum up to you. She said one day she was cooking a roast and was cutting off about half an inch of meat around the whole roast. Her daughter asked her why and the lady told her daughter because that’s the way her mom had always done it. The daughter was very inquisitive so she called her grandma and the grandma gave the same answer so the daughter called her great-grandma. The great-grandma said, “I don’t know why they do it but I always just had a pan that was too small.”
So the humor is in the fact that the whole family was cutting meat off their roasts for no reason. The lady teaching the class got upset that no one laughed at her story but I just didn’t find it a funny story. It isn’t hard to get me to laugh but I’m just not going to laugh at that story. Then I thought a little more about the story and decided that if Cobabe told the story I probably would laugh and Dan Jennejohn would probably pee his pants.
…since I listened to the same song 10 times in a row, but I just did.
I don’t know if it was because I was bored at work, because the video features sad storm troopers or because I’m still amazed that you can watch videos on YouTube in 720p.
Anyway, what I like about it is… I’m not really sure exactly, but the guitar solo has a nice demonstration of tasteful use of the tremolo (whammy bar). I guess it just feels like everything fits where it is supposed to be.
You can watch the music video by clicking the link above, and the song is also available as a free download here.
On a related note, have you seen the In the Basement live performance by Radiohead on YouTube? It’s pretty amazing and is also in high definition. If only ZTN and Vajra had a studio like that. Wow. Check it out. Radiohead – In the Basement (live).

Radiohead – bunch of stuff
So, the Honor Code violation of one of BYU’s basketball players has become national news because I saw it on CNN. I decided to check out the Daily Universe to see what they said about it, but found nothing interesting. With the exception this gem from the Police Beat:
Feb. 18: A writing center employee reported a male student often comes to the center to receive help with sexually explicit stories he has written. The male also pushes to spend an hour with tutors even though most students are only allowed 30 minutes. The writing center is taking action while police are monitoring the situation
Tyler, I don’t think they want to help you with your stories anymore. I’m sure Steel could though.
