Episode 36 Preview - Pitseleh

This week I'm joined by Christien Murawski from the Quarter to Three Movie Podcast to discuss Elliot Smith's haunting "Pitseleh"  Special bonus: Christien gives us a mini-review of the Edward Norton/Ben Stiller movie, "Keeping the Faith".  Trust him: it has to do with the song.

You can prepare for the discussion by downloading "Pitseleh" on iTunes, Amazon Music (free with Prime), and Google Play.

No official video for "Pitseleh", but here's some footage from a live show that really captures what I imagine Elliot Smith often felt like playing in front of people.


I'll tell you why I don't want to know where you are
I got a joke I've been dying to tell you
The silent kid is looking down the barrel
To make the noise that I kept so quiet
I kept it from you, pitseleh

I'm not what's missing from your life now
I could never be the puzzle pieces
They say that god makes problems just to see what you can stand
Before you do as the devil pleases
And give up the thing you love

But no one deserves it

The first time I saw you, I knew it would never last
I'm not half what I wish I was
I'm so angry, I don't think it'll ever pass
And I was bad news for you, just because
I never meant to hurt you

So listen, watch, read, and come back Wednesday for the latest fun-filled episode.  Except, Elliot Smith, so the fun is kind of inherently sad.
