LOSING MY EDGE (COMIC REMIX)



Sean T. Collins ha reescrito la letra de la canción sobre "frikis de la música" que dio a conocer a LCD Soundsystem. Extracto:

I'm losing my edge.
I heard you have a compilation of every good comic ever done by anybody.
Every great book by Jack Kirby.
All the underground hits.
All of the Boody Rogers strips.
I heard you have a hardcover of every Tintin album on Belgian import.
I heard that you have a mini of every seminal Bill Sienkiewicz book - 1985, '86, '87.
I heard that you have a TPB compilation of every good '60s strip and another HC from the '70s.
I hear you're buying a P.O. Box and a Kinko's card and throwing your Diamond deal out the window because you want to make something real.
You want to make a King-Cat comic.
I hear that you and your friends have sold your Peanuts and bought manga.
I hear that you and your friends have sold your manga and bought Peanuts.
I hear everybody that you read is more relevant than everybody that I read.
But have you seen my comics?
