The Taser's Edge


Always a Country Mouse, Never a City Mouse

Along with the rest of the people looking for something new all the time, I first heard of DJ Dangermouse when he released The Grey Album, in 2004.  To be fair, I actually heard it because Holly bought it on eBay, being that she is a ravenous Beatles fan, and being that the Beatles have been in a creative slow period for thirty-plus years, and being that she is unconcerned with monumental copyright infringement.  (And as to this point, the internet now informs me that Sony and EMI have rescinded their fatwa on those still peddling it).

Since then, my purchases (feel free to trace the evolution on this graph):

1.)  Gorillaz Demon Days–Dangermouse was a plus, but I like Gorillaz.

2.)  MF Doom Mouse and The Mask–I was interested in Doom, but the choice to buy came from Dangermouse's production

3.)  Dangermouse and Jemini Ghetto Pop Life–from 2003, and therefore before Onion AV Club and Spin liked him.  Yet purchased Saturday.  I bought it having never heard of it and only because Dangermouse was named on the cover.  Am I cool yet?

The answer, of course, is no.  I will never be able to recapture the potential coolness lost by not having bought that album before The Grey Album was released.  That, my friends, is human existence for you.  (Please see this graph.)

In my defense, did I mention I like Thom Yorke?
