    That Parking Lot Song

    "convenient parking" I first heard it in 1998, coming home in the morning from my night shift work. I thought it was so original. I love their new sound which is not so screamy."good news" is an awesome CD!

    Working On Leaving The Living

    I must update this story later, but Modest Mouse is the music that has the deepest connection to me emotionally. I think there's a universal honesty in the lyrics and most of the music (especially the older stuff, of course, but I'm no new-work shunning elitist). I would be...

    I just can't separate the two. Sometimes I think this is a good thing because I know how music effects me, so pretty much every song I listen to means something to me.
