She Just Laughed Because My Joke Lacked Comic Timing @weplaycomputers(link to song in bio) This is a song that my brother @charlescrisswrote more than 10 years ago after I dragged him to a Parkour class which caused his arm to dislocate. Shortly thereafter we went on a family vacation to Paris, where Chuck not only got to rock a sling, but a really dumb story explaining how it happened. I have loved this song for years. I love the reckless abandon of the whole structure, I love the garage rock feel, countered with the over-tuned vocals for flavor. Chuck’s attitude mixed with the vocal production has always stuck with me, and was insistent that we keep this new recording as close to the original demo as possible. I think we did a pretty good job.
