There Goes the Neighborhood[CD]
THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD (and other slices of post-millennial slob art) Words & music by Jim Testa Planet Williamsburg A simple desultory philippic about the hipster capital of the world 'Audioanimatronic rock 'n' rollers, all dressed up like pro bowlers...' (I Need The) Queer Eye (For The Straight Guy) The New York Times, no less, called me a prime candidate for a Queer Eye makeover. So... 'I need a little more zing, a little more tang, a little bling-bling in my weltanschauung' Punk Rock Is Not Daycare A protest song about the proliferation of 'tweens at punk-rock shows 'Avril Lavigne? Hilary Duff? Do you think I'm punk enough?' (Everything Is Swell In) Weehawken Tom Leher wrote about his hometown. This is my take on the subject. 'It's a place for passing through, not a place for coming to, it's the place we're making do...' Sally's Got A New Tattoo Inspired by the hipster chicks on the L train 'When does mere decoration turn into self-mutilation?' Carla A song about my mom 'Carla liked her cigarettes and a glass of white chablis...' Bonus Track: Jean Shepherd (Demo version) A song about my boyhood hero, a great American humorist, and the author of A Christmas Story 'Who needs Holden Caufiled, or Joyce Kilmer and that tree?'
