What your favorite classic rock band says about you, by McSweeney’s

McSweeney’s just kills it on this one. And it makes us really think deeply about ourselves and what we have done in our past and what we will do in our future. Our favorite “classic rock” band is The Beatles, which in McSweney’s speak means we “can do exactly 1.5 pull-ups.” Which is true. Will we do cocaine off a copy of Type 2 Diabetes For Dummies? There is just so much time left in life, so much Diet Coke to drink. Here are some other greats from their list:

Ted Nugent: Your hair has at some point been caught in a ceiling fan, boat propeller, or lathe.

Deep Purple: Some part of a law named after a young girl applies to you.

Jimi Hendrix: You are under 20 or over 65.

The Kinks: You have bad teeth and are good in bed.

Black Sabbath: Your greatest joy is painting unventilated rooms.

The Eagles: You can only reach orgasm while listening to talk radio.

Quicksilver Messenger Service: You become sullen when people don’t stick around while you fix their vacuum cleaners.

Van Halen: You have a Peeing Calvin bumper sticker on your Jeep.

Journey: You own those running shoes that are shaped like feet.

Fleetwood Mac: You have snorted cocaine off a copy of The Hobbit.

Canned Heat: You own three stereos and no car.

Blue Oyster Cult: You have snorted cocaine off a copy of Type 2 Diabetes for Dummies.

McSweeney’s has some good news about the publishing world. And despite what you may think of our dedicated service to The Citrus Report and our online community, we LOVE published things. We may even have a bit of a personal investment in the published world still. We’ve said too much, read the good news: Americans bought 751,729,000 books in 2010.

Dave Eggers @ SF Electric Works… he draws, too

Posted from The Citrus Report

Dave Eggers has a gallery show opening tonight at SF Electric Works, called It Is Right To Draw Their Fur. Because we know a lot more of the man in regards to his writing and starting McSweeney’s, its interesting to note that he draws animals with a grease pencil.
