G: It's also slicker, though. As I said, I pretty much like this album. I really like "Margaret Vs. Pauline," especially the part about how the worst thing that ever happened to Pauline was when she left a sweater on a train, but the other girl lost three fingers in a cannery.
M: That's a great lyric! I don't know what most of these songs are about, maybe she doesn't either, but a lot of phrases and images stick with me: "parking-lot eyes," "my nightgown sweeps the pavement clean," "I'm holding out for that teenage feeling," "hey there, there's such dandy wolves 'round town tonight."
If people look like their pets, then that's one gorgeous dog: Neko Case and friend
