At Salt Bar where Manute now dj's, love was in the air

I first met Beaver when I was 16 in Columbus Ohio, we were skating the red curbs at the Wexner
Center, he had broken glasses and long hair.  He told me he was traveling and I sarcastically said
"what, with the Dead?" and he was.  Then the next time I saw him was at The John Coltrane
Church in San Francisco, he was playing drums.  Now I've found him at the Fish.

There's the Shannon and the talking dear. 

Alex and Bingo

then I went to this weird theater and listened to Ringleader of the Tormentors.  I sat there and
listened to it twice.  It was kind of an awkward way to get to know a Morrissey record though. 

It's so amazing.  Most of the songs are incredible,  my favorites were: 
"I Will See You in Far Off Places" it sounds Middle Eastern and very heavy.
"Dear God Please Help Me" has beautiful strings by Ennio Morricone,
"Life is a Pigsty" is a 7 and half minute epic. 
"At Last I Am Born" reminds me of "Frankly Mr. Shankly" and has awesome talking bits
as well as the children's choir... "The Youngest was the Most Loved" had the choir too. 
5 different songs have a version of the word "kill" in the lyrics.   

I took extensive notes so I could plagiarize lyrics for the next few months...
The record was supposed to come out on my birthday, but I think they pushed the date back.

I see the world, it makes me puke
but then I look at you and know that somewhere there's a someone who can soothe me
