  • It is weird that [track artist=Wild Man Fischer]The Circle[/track] is not a top track.
  • My Name Is Larry is great.
  • You're not going schizophrenic. Merry Go Round is a catchy tune.
  • I don't think I like Merry Go Round but I can't get it out of my head. I hope I'm not going schizophrenic as well. :-/

  • So Alternative.
  • so indie

  • Pretty strange. Merry Go Round and Which Way did the Freaks Go are actually pretty catchy.
  • "Frank and the Wild Man remained close—until Fischer threw a beer bottle at baby Moon Unit." Valley girl she's a valley girl
