Why I am dumb, part infinity times two

I was flipping through last week’s Dig (mostly on Ezra’s recommendation some time ago; I’d never actually picked it up before) on the train this evening, and I saw a record review of the latest album by Dopo Yume. “Dopo Yume, Dopo Yume . . . now I know it’s not Urusei Yatsura, right? Why do I know that name?” A couple of hours later, I faintly remembered being obsessed with the band — I recollected hearing a cassette of theirs and wanting, nay needing, to find a copy of it for my own. The fact that Sean Lennon and his Cibo Matto chick were involved didn’t help jog my neurons, but I do know that I badgered Kevin about whether he knew of the band and if he could hook me up somehow.

Question is: did I see them live? Did someone play me the cassette that keeps nagging at my memory? Why was I so enamored of them? Should I buy up their albums and EPs thus far and see if anything sounds familiar? Is this what it feels like to grow old?

    This is exactly what it feels like to grow old, in my still-limited but fast-expanding experience. It eases the transition if you make lots of jokes about your forgetfulness and rising unpredictability. The title of this entry, that’s a good one.

    jordan played a solo show up in boston five or six years ago and sold some cassettes. but the music has improved alot since then and the albums and ep are great, so i would recommend checking them out.

    I get that one too. I have heard of those guys from a friend and I never paid attention. I would love to give them the benefit of the doubt.
