Amy Joubert runs into Crawley with her field trip (The Met is crowded today).
Amy is delighted that Crawley is “patronizing the arts” and even more that he’s asking Bast to do a commission for him. She replies “There’s nothing I can do until all this with Lucien is settled and I can..,” and in another great play with names, he replies, “This Joubert you mean, yes.” [Crawley, it is her name too…] (307).
So Ween broke up back in May (this is the year of seemingly one-hit-wonder bands breaking up after decades of playing).
I have a bunch of Ween’s earlier stuff, but stopped listening after their hits.
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).
She is enraged already saying that Miss Moneybags (and now we know why they call her that) and Mr Vogel pretending they didn’t know what bus was what. It’s until the doctor thinks he’s strong enough to…. has been dressing like a student and spying on the teachers. There’s some talk of Augustus Montague Toplady and how he could have stayed out of jail. Gibbs, who normally doesn’t read and proscribed openings is reading the entire Constitution and homeroom won’t end until he does.
And if anyone is doing anything illegal they can file a class action suit like they did with Diamond Cable.
So you can’t tell if you’ll like any other Ween songs based on this one. And if, like me, you haven’t see the video in twenty years, check it out had lots of locations and historical photo-op type things.
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).
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).
