Corellian Seafood



Star Wars (1995 "Faces" VHS).


Incesticide, the collection of Nirvana b-sides and rareties released in 1992. The single "Sliver" proved to be a hit, with its catchy melody and lyrical yarn about grandparents. This record also features "Aneurysm," which has long gotten my vote for Greatest Nirvana Song Ever. I feel it best exemplifies what the band was all about; the quiet verse/loud chorus thing, the unique guitar tones, Kurt's pained vocal delivery, and loud ass drumming. Of course, I am but one man. I'm sure one most people out on the street would cite some b.s. like "Pennyroyal Tea" as quintessential Nirvana.


- The line "Polly wants a cracker" in "(New Wave) Polly" is heard as Luke complains about wanting to go to the Toschi Station (the Toschi Station, or going there, being the "cracker" that he wants).

- The groaning at the end of "Hairspray Queen" coincides with Luke coming to after the Tusken Raider attack.

- The slow, droning ending of "Big Long Now" coincides with Luke pulling up to the Lars homestead; the next song, "Aneurysm," begins as Luke discovers his relative's charred bodies.


Talk about a snoozer. I've been more amped up for tenth season episodes of "Happy Days." Can you believe that show went on for as long as it did? Sheesh. Well, at least it provided a showcase for a young Crystal Bernard, who would one day wow us as the saucy Helen Chapel on "Wings."

Oh, how I longed to spend a mere fifteen minutes at that lunch counter, drinking in Helen's intoxicating charm as she served the denizens of Sandpiper Air. Not even the blubberous, foul presence of Roy Biggins could taint such a wonderful experience.

You know who else was hot on that show? Farrah Forke. She was equally saucy, too. Maybe a little more so. I don't know. I think the jury's still out on that one. Yes, believe it or not, there is a jury currently deliberating as to who was more saucy on "Wings," Crystal Bernard or Farrah Forke. They're over at the Red Roof Inn on Route 9. Why don't you stop over and say hello?

this inspired me to listen to incesticide for the first time in a while, and its pretty hard to get through. besides sliver, been a son, and the vaselines covers.

and i will never understand your love of anyeurism/hatred of pennyroyal tea. but hey, this is AMERICA.
