There I was, minding my own bidness at the local indie, shopping for this book like a good little reader, when I saw this. In book form. On display in the endcap.
What book gives you nightmares, beefens your beef with anti-abortionists, forces you to rethink much of not only your academic training but your very sense of self (not the same thing, thanks), and makes you profoundly grateful for it all: the book, the life, the self, the questioning?
What book could also serve as a pretty good flak jacket?
What book made one of the all-time-best holiday gifts for a certain Thinker for Hire?
What book completely befuddles the casual book review blogger by out-booking every possible way to contain it?
Corin Tucker is both and more.
Watch Tucker in drag as the mom from The Wonder Years gone brunette, a hippie in a dirtyhippievan, and the lead singer of “C-Ray Spex.”
Since this video’s a fantasy, I’ll stop wondering how the kids could see the rock show and still be home in time to fall asleep before the nighttime mom check.
Maybe rock shows ended at 6pm in the early 80s.
