wine tastings and existentialist bandmates

Last night I joined my bandmates Lonnie Bruner and Isaac Washington and their significant others at the residence of Bruner and wife. Bruner had some new gin to check out, Isaac Washington brought over 5 wines from his new restaurant to taste, and his honey, Crystal, brought over a selection of the finest cheeses. Our banter was like something out of the party scenes in Metropolitan. We indulged in the old college throwback discussions of discrediting science versus discrediting god, the scientific method as art form, the characteristics of a fine distilled spirit, existentialist and post-modernist thought, the suburbs, blogs as dangerous weapons, and whether or not a cocktail should be supersized. (Answer: don't supersize me!)

Do any other bands talk about this stuff? Seriously. We're a bunch of pseudo-intellectual fools up in here. But everybody was so terribly urbane!

Does anyone in your band sound as snotty and elitist as Chris Eigeman? As much as I hate to admit it, I always find his characters, particularly the one in Kicking and Screaming, endearing.

Topics of discussion in my band generally include poo-poo, pee-pee, and maybe also, sometimes, farting. I mean, we occasionally detour into a debate on Adam Smith's "invisible hand" theory and its place in the post-millennial world economy...but then, somebody rips one, and it's right back into the gutter.

Where the hell are you? Did you retire after that brilliant Nick Lachey/Pogues post?
