Then there’s this pirate ship from the North Korean Pirate Bay who thinks he has captured Tegan R. Quin on her way to Aldi Foods.

So Round.

So Smooth.

So Tightly Packed.

AMERICAN SPIRIT CIGARETTES.

Then, there’s like, this totally soft camera dissolve, into this midriff shot of some girl whom has scratched a rift into her Girbaud jeans in the Eleventh Grade, who has a pouch of turquoise American Spirits rolling tobacco tucked discretely into her right butte pocket.

From the angle of the camera, from the midriff down, you can see the little Native American Guy hitting his piece pipe from the side, looking at you from the side pocket of the scratched out long-fisherman fingernail polished with Manic Panic Original Polish, Cerulean Blue, or whatever.

In any case, so, yeah. He’s looking at you out the side of the corner butte pocket, wandering weather or naught you payed a tension in Spanish class that day.

Sincerely,

Jacques Eliott Merlot

Dear Sara K. Quin,

So round. So smooth. So tightly packed.

Then, there’s like, this totally slow camera dissolve, & the voiceover guy does his:

“AMERICAN SPIRIT CIGARETTES”

& like, there’s this panorama shot on a Leica body with a Minox frame, with 1600-speed Fujifilm 70mm, black & white, of Sara K. Quin, walking away from the camera, from the midriff down.

Around & aboot, eh?

Sincerely,

Jack Elliott Merlot

Thom Yorke liked this track so much that Radiohead convinced ɃɈȪЯҠ herself to do an unplugged, all-acoustic instrumental cover that is hard to find, but search the ᶆᶏᶉᶏᶇᵭᵰ setlist for more information.

great bass sound. singing like a girl is a strenght not weakness. you dont really sound like a girl. i think what you are afraid of is being emotional …..like a girl. please that is so much better than the alternative. be happy
