Well it's forever ruined that song for me!
(P.S. Jamison, I haven't forgotten you, I've got that essay on my other computer and will transfer it over and send it to you when I have a bit more time!)

It took me a long time to figure out that it was "rug" instead of "rock" in Distant Stations.

YES! I only found out it was 'rug' when Wye Oak posted this picture of a [url=http://www.facebook.com/wyeoak] (third photo, w/ the hand) pebble[/url] JD gave them and I was going to say 'that's like the rock in Distant Stations!' but I decided to check my facts. It's not like a rug at all...

I'm still disappointed it's not '[i]kung-fu the carpet for clues[/i]'.

According to some sources. I can hear both. My 'for rugs' include 'rock' at the beginning makes the rock thrown at the crow a bit awkward: to mention another rock and do so ignoring the first rock, rocks have a tendency to be old in human terms, and 'rug' would mean I can stop looking for a Distant Stations rock at pebble beaches. My 'for rocks' include WTF are ya doing digging up a rug...

This isn't funny by any means but since I was filled with so much rage at my mistake, I'll share it.
Up until I heard tMG play Southwood Plantation Road live, I thought the final line was "And go with unsuspecting Christian men." When he played it live, he said, "Mingle with unsuspecting Christian men," and I just thought it was some cool spur-of-the-moment alternate lyrics. Then I listened to other live recordings and they all said "mingle." Then I re-listened to the album version over and over, possibly twenty times and I've realized my entire tMG fanhood has been a lie. Shook my entire belief system. Not good times.

you are.

and for the record, i am standing with nall, dtrom and others on "rock" not "rug." it's an uttered thing on the album version, but i think it's just how he said it on the day; remember, there were no [pointless] endless overdubs then...

i just sit here in my cave and absorb your facts and figures.

Catherine's Kid was telling me about that. I thought the exact same thing! Well, I thought it was, "then go with..."

Ironically, given your sig:

"Fire-bellied toad number five, from what may or may not have been [b][u]a limited[/u][/b] series, opened up his little mouth as though to speak. And then he spoke and then he spoke to me, and he said: 'you can't holler down [b][u]our[/u][/b] rain barrel. You can't climb [b][u]our apple[/u][/b] tree. I don't want to play in your yard if you won't be good to me.' Honey, it was downright creepy..."

I still stand by rock. It's always been rock to me, and unless John has said himself that it was rug, it will continue to be rock.

Thanks for tellin' me. I wasn't familiar with the quote so I just wrote it as I heard it in the song

No sweat. tmg.net and all the lyric sites (who seem to swipe off tmg.net anyway) have it the way you did. I'm pretty sure it's "a limited" rather than "unlimited" too.

Until I read this... I thought those were the actual lyrics....

I feel pathetic... :P

Several things.
First, iatethelotus, awesome, and I'm looking forward to reading it!
Second, how the hell did I start a conversation about a video game featuring violent amphibians? I'm sort of perversely proud.
Third, dcorrigan, do not feel ashamed. I was in denial about it not being "battling frog" for several months.

I just noticed how off those lyrics are from what I thought they were! I also think it's "damp forest" instead of "damn forest."

I've always taken it as "damp" as well. However, since most other lyrics sites rip from TMG.net, only one person incorrectly transcribing it can lead to a whole domino effect of misconception... If that makes sense. Lol

Wow, this entire time I thought the line was "battling frog" and that it was a reference to the story about a frog being boiled alive.

Edit: I just listened to Broom People again. "Book" does rhyme with "brook" better than "frog."
