Who here likes the music of Eels?
Those who do a lot will know the connection.
Just listening to them, drunk, on Xmas Eve. Fantastic.
I don't know the lyrics to all the songs that well, but is there any songs he mentions his dad? I know there's, "Things the Grandchildren Should Know". Which is actually one of my favourite songs of his.

"I'm turning out just like my father, though I swore I never would. Now I can say that I have love for him, I never really understood what it must have been like for him, living inside his head. I feel like he's here with me now; even though he's dead".

That has to be my favourite lyric of all time.

I forgot, [language]

"Daddy was a drunk, a most unpleasant man. Asleep on the floor, just inside the front door, with a smile underneath his red nose. The wrong look his way, well that could really wreck his day. And believe me when I say, it would wreck your day too".

Darn I was hoping for a cuisine thread, I haven't had any eel stew in a long time and now I'm going to spend all day tomorrow looking for some fresh eel.

Or an exotic pet thread...

Eels up inside ya, finding an entrance where they can.

I got a warning for this thread...
Anyway, although I can't remember making this thread, I am interested in knowing if there is any more songs about his dad. I think his sister committed suicide; any about her?

Don is going to make them into pets; Trakar is going to eat them, and the thread is about a band?
