The other fun thing about Ween is that in addition to pretty much none of their albums sounding alike, pretty much none of their songs sound alike.

As the bus pulls out we learn that Ann di Cephalis took the kids to the basketball game that Vogel was supposed to go to (HA! And a refrain of “maybe she enjoyed the basketball” runs through his head until they get back and Ann is there. Turns out Nora took all his suits to the Thrift Store for her Brownie points.
Vogel observes that all the busses look alike, and is ranting at her and she calls him crazy to which he replies “Daisies won’t tell” (310). Dan starts measuring the studs and Ann goes to town on him calling him a freak for crawling around like that. He was supposed to go down and buy them back (of course, he was in the hospital) “the first time she goes out and shows some initiative” (317).
I’m told some of their later records are quite good.
This song from the album was my introduction to them, and it is weird and kind of irritating and strangely catchy and perfectly encapsulates Ween.
But JR says it’s important to read all the “literture.” (“Will you stop saying literture.”) Then it gets down to what Bast owes JR.
JR gave him in expenses and Bast itemized his trip (I love that JR had to give him while Gibbs has at one point got a penny on him).
In the meantime JR is mad that Bast says he has no time to write music when here’s a whole bunch of music he has recently done (this is commercial stuff to pay the bills).
Bast agrees to meet Piscator (and for that, JR gives him an elastic band for his broken shoe).
I can’t decide if he’s right or not (or if it simply won’t be relevant for what he has–indeed, a lot of this financial stuff, it seems like JR is more knowledgeable than anyone else because he has actually read the material–something nobody does.
And Bast is a musician, what does he know about money, right? Although his ultimate plan (potentially ingenious, but practically preposterous) is that they buy one share of all the big stocks, get their prospectuses and read them all.
He was released from the hospital–he looked for her there but remembered the trip to the Met. Glancy bought another suit there too (actually he split the seat of it).
