Pop culture treasure, high culture trash.

The flower, not the high school massacre

The new ThunderAnt short features long-distance songwriting, Carrie Brownstein riding a motorcycle and a last-act cameo by Mr. and Mrs. Corin Tucker. Lance Bangs has superb taste in Electrelane t-shirts, and throwaway joke songs written by Carrie Brownstein are still better than 95% of songs written by people in utter seriousness. And you thought it couldn't get any better than affectionate satires of feminist bookstore culture. Chuh!

Funny though this is, Emily's Sassy Lime actually recorded a lot of their music this way. For real (wait for 0:29).

I'm glad they included a punk part. It really adds an edge to the song.
