In a bizarre mashup of sorts, the guys decide to each talk about 2 completely different albums at the same time, inspired by a friend and listener of the show. Tom covers the album Meteora by Linkin Park, and in normal long-winded Tom fashion, it’s full of stories form his adolescence. The album helped him through some serious family trauma as a young teen, motivated him to wear nothing but DC clothing for years, and he even performed a song for three 7th grade girls in his bedroom after an early dismissal day. But he was in 6th grade so it was totally cool.
Pat discovered his album Leaving Through the Window”by Something Corporate much later in life after having a few casual interaction in 8th grade along with Tom. One of the songs has strong ties between him and his wife, while others remind him of strolling campus alone as a bushy eyed college freshman.
Song of the week:
On The Line by Jenny Lewis
