New Recording!: "Flea Market Intellectual"

This song celebrates autodidacticism.  Formal education has its place, but it is great fun amassing one's own education as a choose your own adventure.  Of course, doing this on the cheap like the singer of the song means that you may be allowing randomness to play too large a role in your intellectual activity and may have some gaping holes in your education (of course, these days the products of the finest educations aren't too impressive, so you may not be any worse off than them, just in a different manner).  You can read what I wrote about this song and hear the demo here.  For the rerecording, it's the usual voice, guitar, keyboard as bass, and drums.  I also played keyboard as keyboard here, which I don't always do, but which seemed fitting since so many keyboards can be bought at flea markets, garage sales, and thrift stores.  

Thanks to The Tinnitist for featuring "Has Anyone Seen Mitchell?" on a recent playlist!

For more Wred Fright music, listen to the Yeast? 7"!
