why i love the clash episode 34132423

greatest punk band ever.

and yet look at how theyre dressed.

they make pete townshend (who has 777x more money then they do) look homeless

dapperest mfs in town.

topper has a damn hankie in his pocket

i wanna be punk like them.

in that, i do not want to abide by yr rules

i dont want you to think you know whats coming.

heres whats coming: awesome fucking something.

the clash were the most melodic and at times quietest punk band ever

they defied the term

intentionally? no. but you just cant put them in a box.

i dare you to find the box for me.

or most of the things ive done.

if you did though, heres the stamp they’d have put on it




i wanna say thats not joey ramone

but that equipment looks like the real thing.

those are like four Marshall headers

but who’s that on guitar?

i ask because Joey’s neck looks suspicious

wasnt he always a twig?

even the hair looks like a wig.

was listening to end of the century for a while and now im on the clash sandinsta because its my least favorite class record

three albums of experimentation if you ask me

aint nothing wrong with trying things out


tonight i got an uber select call from a little mexican guy named juan

we talked about tacos when i saw we werent going very far away

i said ive been to england ive been to france but they aint got tacos. he told me i need to go to mexico city. i say so thats where the real deal is? he goes, no, you gotta go to the towns around it, especially in the south.

im like do they have chips there and good salsa? he goes yeah. i say whats your thing right now?

he goes i really like a good quesadea.

he’s all, youre not spelling it right.

i go, its not spelled queseda?

he laughs and says, its not spelled that either.

we were getting close to his house. huge craftsman right near pico and western. pretty much the house i wanna buy for zulekia and marry her and raise her kids at.

dropped him off and he paused, dug into his pants

now believe me when i tell you he looks exactly like a busboy and hes ordering mercedeses

and tipping!

gave me three bucks.

and i was like muchas gracias amigo. and he was all later!
