For Those Of You In The Mood For A Late Lunch, A Few Suggestions From The #cafemerge Menu
Ah, summer Fridays, where the conditions are pretty much ideal for incubating pun-filled Twitter joking. Thanks to Best Show on WFMU co-host Tom Scharpling and the music-licensing company Bank Robber Music, Twitter this afternoon was taken over by people riffing on the catalog of venerable indie Merge Records and various foodstuffs. Hilarity followed, as did a potential menu for a dinner party before this weekend's big Archers of Loaf gigs.
Spoon would like to remind you that setting the table is just as important as making the food.
