Hell is Other People

And just because I think it's hilarious, from that same brilliant (but alas out of print) 1991 album by Iron Prostate I mentioned yesterday, please enjoy their incomparable ode to the titular castaway of Gilligan's Island.

The lyrics in full:
I wear a white hat. I wear a red shirt.
They all think I'm stupid. One day I'll kill them.
I am Gilligan.
Jeeebus, and people thought those Barthelme boys were hotshit minimalists.

This leads to the great eternal question....Ginger or Mary Ann?

Three minutes and five seconds!!! What cajones! They certainly chose the right name for their band. I'll admit it's a good start to a song, but after twenty seconds, it's pretty much over with.

Regarding said lyrics. I think I'd go with just plain lazy over minimalist.

I did enjoy the photo you posted, though. It's a great pic of Gilligan, dressed to kill?

I thought Paul Ryan was Gilligan.
