Gotta admit I heard this on NPR and expected nothing but I can’t get enough of this song. This guy is quite a hand with the A-A-A rhyme scheme, which is one of the funniest rhyme schemes.
I like the up-sing when he says “pizza” and “switchboard”, etc., and the whistling, and the fat bass and echoey guitar, but my favorite thing about it has to be that, for the song to soar, it requires that the world contain a relatively well-known public figure named “Phillippe de Montebello”.
Walter Martin, “Jobs I Had Before I Was Rich And Famous”
Getting the official artwork together to ship off to our merchandising concern in the Far East. Our artist spent days capturing this likeness.
Not much longer at this job, it’s ticking away. Maybe now I’ll get some drawing done that’s not just doodling during meetings.
It’ll be for sale, as soon as it’s done. (It’s getting another coat of fluorescent yellow, plus a coat of shiny varnish.) Click to enlarge.
