Ok what? Let me explain.
See, the other night, it was oh let’s say two and a half weeks ago, I had eaten too much homemade ghee-based Indian food at dinner and my half-awake dreams were twisted and surreal, yet incorporating real-world elements into a Lovecraftian monstrous hybrid vision. Most of the memories of these dreams were immediately etched out of my brain in an apparent effort at self-preservation, lest insanity take hold permanently.
But one dream element shines through brightly, like a thing that shines very very brightly. In this dream, you see, there was a pop-rock band. The members of this pop-rock band were, unbelievably and improbably and bizarrely:
- The kid from Hanson. He was singing, and somehow all grown up.
- Adam Schlesinger, songwriting genius behind Fountains of Wayne, on bass (?).
- One of the people from Smashing Pumpkins on guitar. That James Iha guy in fact. Totally random right?
- And on drums, none other than Bun E. Carlos from fricking Cheap Trick. (!!) Yes, that Bun E. Carlos. Really old presumably, but still rocking.
I could only guess at what sort of psychopathies could have led my brain to conjure up this unholy vision. Imagine my utter horror and disbelief, then, to discover that this band is REAL and that they are called Tinted Windows. How can this be? And what does it mean?
Some things cannot be explained. Some things just are.
