Speaking of abusing books…


Who knew librarians had telepathy?

I like theband’s other music, too…I may have to hunt down a CD.

    “I’ll let you touch the…first editions…” *guffaw*

    What’s with the shushing librarian in eyeglasses stereotype, though? Shall we never overcome?

    Come on, now, Kristine — the video also played with that other stereotype, that librarians are really hot behind those eyeglasses. Isn’t that fair recompense?

    This sounds like the Bastard Fairies. Very intelligent playful lyrics and music and a bit edgy, which most pharyngula folks would likely enjoy. You can actually download most of their current album for free through their site. The woman singing is Yellow Thunder Woman, who is a native american.

    I was wrong. It just sounded like them starting out.

    The Bastard Fairies though are very much a Pharyngula sort of band. A couple youtube samples. The first is “We’re all going to hell” with a video of people in ape masks.

    This next one has a title appropriate for Pharyngula, Exoskeleton. This one isn’t very polished…done on a webcam.

    Excuse me, I’m looking for a video that features Tim Curry as a chortling, hand-rubbing librarian who files Ann Coulter in the compressed stacks and then sends the guys from Spinal Tap to go, er, check her out.

    Would I find that in “Criminal Justice Administration,” or in the Fiction section, or under “Stonehenge”? Mwahaha.

    For all frustrated and wannabe librarians out there…www.librarything.com Catalogue your own books, add tags, pictures of the cover, ratings, etc. As a librarian not currently working I’m having a blast on this site. It satisfies my cravings…

    You’re right, LibraryThing is great. But you are presumably not the LT user angie – she has no books!
