Easy Erections and Body Funk

I have a lot to learn from this little music appreciation experiment and it was never so evident to me before today. I listened to part of Double Nickels on the Dime for the first time this morning and was transported from toolin' around the suburbs in the family Prius (going well under 55 in our area traffic) to places more varied. I can't play this music around the young'uns (the 3 1/2 year old can already wield "Goddammit!" like a spear, he doesn't need these guys adding to his vocabulary) and so there was a special indulgence to sitting at an interminable red light, behind a blue VW Beatler, hearing these songs that sounded like the essence of young men, all easy erections and body funk. Sometimes they want to impress a girl, so they pull their act together, as in Cohesion. Sometimes they don't much care.
