"I gotta cut out, I gotta cut out all the, you know, all the, all the sugar-coated, cream-filled things that I eat. Yeah. I gotta go on a diet. I gotta slim down. My boobs are too big. Big boobs. 'We went to see Dave Matthews and he was pretty good, but, and, you know, but he's got big boobs!' Weird kinda big boobs. Like a hula dancer kinda."
"So um, so, you know what the trip 'cause I'm an ego maniac, that's why I do, why, why I end up doing this probably, but, but you know. I'm, I'm pretty good about when, you know, people are chatting and stuff, but, but then, but then when sometimes, when you play a little quiet song and someone's talking just like about any old thing, and they're just like, 'And then the guy told me on Sunday that I had to be there, you know, in the morning, and, and I was just like I'm sick and tired of that 'cause I'm not going to get up and go over there.' And I was thinking that if you're going to talk that much, you should go outside and do it in the bar. That's what I was thinking, you know. Try and, I mean. I'm definitely trying. I'm definitely trying, you know.
It's been speculated for a while, but confirmed by DMB Tuesday. Yes, they will perform in 2011. The following announcement appeared via DMB's Facebook Page and on the Warehouse Tuesday afternoon:
"I like that little shit. Eep, eep, eep, eep, eep. Ugh! After I wrote that, after that, after that song, um, uh, I, after I kinda finished it, and my wife and I and, and a friend and, and another friend who was his wife, and he was her husband. I can't figure it out. I think it's the same. Anyway, and then another friend. And then we drove, um, it was New Year's Eve, and we drove off way into the bush. We were in the bush, and our kids were all hanging out by a campfire, um, over here at one end and we drove way off into the bush and we were off in the bush. And then, and we all, and it was like, 'Woohoo! and we're drinking champagne and nothing seemed too bad because, you know, there's no one else there. All we could run into was maybe a rock, and then, and, or a bush or something. But we drove way off and we watched fireworks like this (makes fireworks noise) on the horizon (makes noises again) and different, like in Pretoria and Johannesburg, but far away. And we were off in the bush, and then we, we got all naked there, dancing, and it was awesome. Um. I think my friend was whipping people with his shoe. I can't remember. Anyway, this got kind of crazy, and then we all got dressed and then we,...
""Calm down," he said. "Calm down," he said. "Ah, the chimney."
I say, "What the big fat man doing up in the chimney?"
Him say, "Oh, that's just the red coat big guy coming down the chimney, gunna give him one a, give him a big present," he said.
I said, "get the hell out of my kitchen! Get out of my kitchen! Get to the lounge! The Christmas tree in the lounge! Don't come down the chimney and go to the kitchen! Come down the chimney, go to the lounge! The Christmas tree!""
Liz Phair's new album, Funstyle, in part has a producer you should be quite familiar with- Dave Matthews. He produced several of the songs on the album, and that working relationship grew into Dave guesting on the song You Should Know Me. Listen closely, and you can hear the recognizably sounds of Dave's guitar. He does not sing anywhere on the album.
"Thank god for the hard hat! Hope everything's going swimmingly. Thank, thank goodness for the hard hat. I was, uh, earlier when I put the hard hat on, I had to set it to the big size 'cause. Over Thanksgiving, um, me and some of my big-headed friends had a competition, and the last time we had the competition measuring our heads, uh, the size of our heads, I, I didn't even, I didn't even, you know, finish in the, in the top five, which I was, I was. I gotta big head, and then my sister and my brother, they took me out. I was, I was out of it. My friend Alex's big head beat me and other big-head people are winning and coming in with their ribbons. Bullshit. And then uh. But this here, thanks to an excessive drinking problem, I can't point to anything else. Well, habit. I think problem is a little excessive, Dave. I agree entirely...

"All these wires in my shirt! So anyhow, uh, I'm just visiting Vegas. (mumbles) It's a weird place, man. It's like a plastic asshole, but in a nice way. But that's, you know, I've been talking to some people, and there's parts of Vegas that, that when we come by and visit, that we don't know about, that are pretty awesome and just outside Vegas. It's not all just, weird. You know, you just, and I kinda, I guess you could look at it and go, 'That's just so beautiful!' or you could look at it and just go, 'What the is this place doing here?' That's a sign that we have strayed from the natural path. Just a little bit. I mean, I'm not, I'm not judging, I'm just saying. End of the world kind of stuff. That. Thumbs up baby. Fizzle. This song is about Vegas."
