If you are confused, check with the sun


So like I'm da big REM fan and was listening to Green earlier… when I realised I'd misheard a lyric and I had done so like, forever. In the song Stand I thought the line was 'if fishes were trees, the trees would be falling". Kinda weird imagery but that's Micheal Stipe for you. He's always toying with weird word ideas and making interesting connections and juxapostions of ideas, even if you have no idea what he's on about.

 

The true line is 'if wishes were trees, the trees would be falling' which kinda makes more sense in the context of the song. I prefer my version any way…

To understand stand the Hoff u must first understand that in the end there can only be the Hoff.

the Rove thing started months ago - they asked people to send in every piece of hoff mail. I'm personally a fan, started through a good friend of mine - who incidentally is having a bon voyage party soon with Rock Hoff on the invitations and evryone has to dress like a rock star. by the way jangles if you still have the hoff anthology could you please resend it as Marky Mark is designing the invitations and he wants the best possible phothoffgraph.
