Steve Malkmus's Scrabble Tips
1. "Save your X and Zs so you get at least 70 or 80 points when you use them."
2. "Don't waste your wildcards (blanks) because they're really precious."
3. "I don't switch letters very often. I think it's probably smarter to do that more than I do. Don't be afraid to change your tiles."
4. "Learn your two letter words."
5. "Keep yourself up to date with the new words that are added to the Scrabble rulebook."
this album is pretty good. i've never really heard stephen malkmus on his own, but i like it. definitely checking them out this year.
"That's the most gangster punk rock shit out there."- Z-Trip showing his love for Paul Tollett
So in the new issue of EW they interview Stephen Malkmus. It's a good article but at the end they ask the band members what they think of a pavement reunion and this is what they said..
"I could definitely see it happening in the not-too-distant future...the only hurdle might be getting everyone to drop what they're doing, but I'm sure the excitement of playing again will make it okay."
"There have been so many reunion shows I worry that a Pavement reunion would just be on in a string of others. So maybe five years. I've actually dreamt that there was a reunion show and I couldn't remember the songs."
"Something small in 10 years like the Zeppelin thing sounds good. Obviously, the arena would be smaller than theirs. My perverse way to do it would be a free show that 20 people were at. It could be great."
They didn't actually get any of those quotes themselves. Those are all from old interviews. Kannberg and Malkmus have both said they'd try to do a small show for the 25th or 20th or whatever it is anniversary of Matador records, so that might be the time. I'd fly out to wherever that show is.
Kim Deal doesn't seem to like Malkmus. Good job they are not playing the same day.
