This week the Flaming Lips released a new song to hear online for free. Now this being the Flaming Lips...nothing is what it seems. Now I've always been told, you get what you pay for. So what's the catch? The catch is that the song is 6 hours long. Obviously, my curiosity is high to hear what a six hour song sounds like. But do I want to listen to six hours of the Flaming Lips chaotic anti-songs...let alone any band for a whole six hours? I'm not sure I'd want to do anything for a full six hours. I tried watching all three LOTR movies in a row and only made it through the second one. I've tried to do a Mad Men marathon but I never get past three episodes in one sitting. I run and my marathon times taps out in less than 5 hours.
Maybe Wilco...maybe if Wilco made a six hour song I could get excited to listen to the whole thing. But for now...I'll have to settle for their new album.
