I got an email today titled "Days of Our Lives":

TH: almost as good as the gilmore girls episode

CT: ayeeee. i know. kim even had a speaking part.
this hurts my guts. just a bit.

TH: The speaking part is what kills me!
The gilmore girls episode i liked because you could tell they were doing it for their daughter. That's A Grade parenting right there if you ask me! Coco must seriously the the lord of her school...to all the cool kids she'd be all like "yeah my parents are in sonic youth and i am going to Mark Jacobs house tonight for a game of monopoly" and to the popular preppy kids she's like "oh yeah my parents are on gossip girl tonight...no biggie" ...step off!

CT: I liked the Gilmore Girls episode (just watched on google vid, thanks pitchfork for the link!) - it had them more in their element. This Gossip Girl one last night... (weird does Sonic Youth only do shows abbreviated with "GG" ?) was just so awkward!! My stomach turned knots for them.
I'd rather be Lee Ranaldo's offspring, then I'd get some sweet salt & pepper hair and a laid back dad.
It's pouring rain in LA right now. LIke POURING! RAIN!



"Bull in the Heather" is a song by Sonic Youth, released as the only single from their 1994 album Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star.

The song was named after a racehorse from a bumper sticker given to Thurston and Kim from Bob Nastanovich of Pavement. In May 2007, NME magazine placed "Bull in the Heather" at number 48 in its list of the 50 Greatest Indie Anthems Ever. The song starts with a sound which is very recognizable in the music of Sonic Youth, by striking a tailed bridge guitar, in this case a Fender Jazzmaster, behind the bridge.

Song appears in Beavis and Butthead fourth season 24 episode called 'Mr. Anderson's Balls' and in the first season of Daria in episode 9, "Too Cute."

Year / Single / Chart / Peak
1994 / "Bull in the Heather" / Modern Rock Tracks / No. 13
1994 / "Bull in the Heather" / UK Singles Chart / No. 24

The song was covered by The Go! Team in 2007.

The music video features former Bikini Kill and Le Tigre singer Kathleen Hanna dancing, throwing Thurston Moore about by his guitar and kissing Kim Gordon, while wearing speedos over her tights. During filming, Hanna gave Thurston a bloodied lip. The video is directed by Tamra Davis. The scenes of the guitarists jumping around on a bed were recreated from a photo Kim Gordon gave to Davis of Thurston when he was younger. In the video, Kim Gordon is five months pregnant.
