FAV: Feeling Steely



I kinda felt bad for calling out my husband last week with 'The Reflex' and all. I mean, I didn't realize he'd end up being the ONLY person that didn't remember that song. So to make up for it, I'm putting myself on the line. I'm going to admit something that will tarnish me forever and probably make a few people throw up in their mouth.

I LIKE STEELY DAN.

I know. It's horrific. But It's the truth. I like them, and I like them a lot.

I have since I was a kid. Even without Chevy as their drummer. "Ricki, Don't Lose That Number" always takes me back to that brown shag carpet we had in the old apartment where my favorite toy was a spool of thread named "Fitty-Fitty". And "Peg " and "Josie"? They always feel just like old friends.

I could claim I eventually grew out of them, but I'd be lying. I never did. I'm sure this will make perfect sense to you once you see this video.

emily...
i am ashamed of you.
in my mind steely dan ranks right down there with rush and that creepy circus theme music.

i don't think coming out with this makes aaron's 'reflex' lapse any better...it just makes my stomach hurt more that he missed out on a good song and you are suffering under the illusion that 'peg' is a good song.

who will save your children?
