I’ve been singing this song for a week. A WEEK. Do you know what that does to a person? Welcome to my insanity.

Dude, what is wrong with you? I am not sure if it’s possible for you to be more incorrect.

i don’t think Jay is incorrect for loving Sorry Ma over Let it Be…whatever spins your record, yo.

He’s totally wrong!

Jay is totally right!

16 blues is the lamest paul song ever- It feels like the one Paul song where he doesnt mean it to me. And its creepy.
Answering machhine, unsatisfied, and favorite thing(best mats song ever!)
were originally slated to go on sorry ma im sure.

Hi,
My name is I Will Dare and I am probably the best song Paul Westerberg ever wrote. While I can understand the brilliance of “Otto,” I still have to point out that you’re wrong. dead wrong.

Love you in the fall,
I Will Dare

Jay, dude, you’re obviously listening to the songs wrong. lol

Hi I Will Dare,
This is “Shiftless when Idle”, I met jay in 7th grade when he was living in the outskirts of St. Louis. I encourage you to drive to Chesterfield Missouri, live in a house by the Missouri River for most of your early formative years, and then imagine getting your mitts on the likes of me.
Not to mention, my album gave birth to the line”Well apathy’s got a hold on me, and it won’t let go,” which pretty much sums up the mats to me….errrr… jay i mean.
And not to be a bully, but my album would beat the fuck out of yours in a street fight. Except for ANswering machine and favorite thing, which would most likely gang rape the likes of Johnny’s Gonna Die.
Just sayin’
PS- Our B-sided cousin is If only you were lonely:)

Jay is dumb and posted me in 2 threads. Sorry.

Jodi

Dear Shiftless When Idle,

Yeah, sorry. You’re good and all, but you can’t hold a candle to me, I Will Dare. Don’t get me wrong I love all the fun of Sorry Ma and some of the subtle genius that lies therein, but come on you know you and your brethern can’t hold a candle to Let it Be. It’s okay to be wrong we promise to still love you.

Sincerely,
I Will Dare

P.S. You want Black Diamond? Because he totally doesn’t hang with the rest of us in the right kind of way.

No, we don’t want him either. Send him over to Stink’s house.
He can play with Gimme Noise.

Tim

Sun Mar 16, 2008 at 9:25 am · ·

You both might be wrong.

Jodi

Sun Mar 16, 2008 at 10:11 am · ·

Dear Tim,

Who asked you?

Love,
I Will Dare

jay

Sun Mar 16, 2008 at 2:20 pm · ·

Tim, I just hope your not representing with some drivel like Sadly Beautiful.

Tim

I’m takin’ that silly Bastard A Regular On the Bus down to a Swingin’ Party . On the way there we will listen to that static filled station that sits left of the dial and if a sad song plays I may lose a little mascara.

Dear Tim,

Why don’t you lay it down clown and take two doses of thunder and call me in the morning.

Get uppity with me, why I oughta. . .

I Will Dare

Like all the best songs on Sorry ma, curt simple and to the point:
“Shut up”

wow, thats meant to be a joke but comes off so harsh in print.

Hey look, whichever album floats your boat is just hunky dory and don’t let anybody get to you about it.

But just FYI, you’re all wrong. The correct answer is Pleased To Meet Me.

Jimdracula

Tue Mar 18, 2008 at 3:39 pm · ·

Don’t think there is a correct answer. Each is fuckin’ ace on its own…

Like Beggars Banquet competing with Let it Bleed competing with Sticky Fingers…rock on & on til the break of dawn.

Jay

Tue Mar 18, 2008 at 5:13 pm · ·

Woh- you opened a whole new vain there!
EXHILE ON FUCKING MAIN ST.
Seriously- we can all agree that nothing else- as a complete album- can ever come close to that.

Other than Sorry Ma, but thats a given.

Jay

Tue Mar 18, 2008 at 5:13 pm · ·

And by vain i mean vein.

Jay

So, at least one other genius out there voted for Sorry Ma:)

    wow.
    i watch this 24/7 on my iPod(hard-earned christMESS present, im not at all a rich biottch).
    anyways, you can download this and like 20 more at twintone.com, its absolutely amazing.
    Watching Bobby makes me depressed as hell. Im sure every Mat fan misses him, even if they never even met him, like me. I miss the hell out of him…im 13.
    these men are hunks <33
    i love how paul says thanks at the end, its so cute. ^_^
    im over obssesed….
