“When I got to her house, she said, ‘I’ve never taken acid, so I can’t sing about that stuff.’ She’s done lots of other drugs, but not acid. So she was like, ‘Why don’t we do some acid, and then I can sing about it.’ She told her assistant, ‘Go get us some acid.’ Her assistant would’ve just ran out and got everybody a bunch of acid— how great is that? But we didn’t, because I was like, ‘Listen lady, I’m not going to do a bunch of acid with you tonight, because we have to record.’ Plus, I didn’t really want her to. The way she is, it’s as though she’s on acid already.”—The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne talks to Pitchfork about working with Ke$ha
#188 DOUBT (WIP) (A PROBLEM LIKE MARIA). this song just wouldn’t go away! in the midst of preparing for the “99 Problems and Maria is 1” release, it popped into my head; so i grabbed my guitar and got it out of my system. thing is, i still keep hearing it in my head; to the point where i hum it randomly from time to time.
i guess it’s a sign that this song definitely needs to move past the WIP/demo stage. we’ll see.
#187 THREE LITTLE BIRDS (BOB MARLEY COVER). a few weeks ago, a friend of mine was feeling really bad, and she requested that i cover this song for her because it always cheers her up somewhat. so, i did!
i was planning on using the melodica, too, but i thought my friend needed some extra cheering up, extra fast. i’m using ghost (my nylon classical) instead of prudence (my seagull), too — prue hasn’t been restrung. :P
APLM:my husband just heard the owl sounds through my headphones and he was like, "is that a dolphin trying to sound like a whale?" and i was like, "no, it's an owl run through a high pass filter with delay"
MATTI:may i ask what he is thinking when he finds you, with headphones
APLM:and he looked at me like he was thinking "this is the woman i married," with this face -_-
