roof rats

A summer stayed in Austin, Texas would mean being slowly, surely eaten alive by insects. There is no shortage of fodder for the critters, the giant cockroaches will still eat enough of whatever they need to eat to fly towards the faces of humans in a menacing fashion, the fleas will feast on the blood of roof rats, stray cats, and the spot where the knee meets the calf. These creatures known as The Places choose another way: a Puffy Cloud Bender to take us closer to you. The more goddamn puffy clouds we imbibe, the better. Falcons fledge their young from dead trees, Cherokee ladies in Washington Redskins sports jerseys give you shit for not paying the campground fee, and the only gold in El Dorado is 15 kt on sale at Wal Mart. Amongst all this, we ride. You can't stop us so don't try. The Places: 'PUFFY CLOUD BENDER' 2005 SUMMER TOUR 8/1 AUSTIN, TX at FLIPNOTICS with Tenlons Fort, Paul Brainard
