sad parenthood story time with nick cave
The other night I asked my 7-year old whether he liked Lego Batman, and he said “I think Lego Batman is sort of a goth”, and I agreed, and he asked to hear some goth music (because I’d just played him some punk music, which is another story), so I put on Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds doing “Tupelo”, and he looked affronted and said “Daddy, that is not goth music, that is pirate music. Why are you playing me pirate music?”. There are a lot of rolled rs in “Tupelo”, I’ll give him that.
That’s what this gifset reminded me of.
