slightly more famous than me

The Rambler's review of Corey Dargel's "Less Famous Than You" is not only pretty spot-on, it's also superbly written and evocative. I haven't yet listened to it as closely as Tim has, but a bit of "Gay Cowboys" was stuck in my head all day yesterday:

"compulsively sexual desperados
in our lavender chevrolet
and then we drove through chicago
which is not as gay as they say"

Inexplicably, the first two lines strongly remind me of some favourite lines from Outkast's "B.O.B.":

"So now we sittin' in a drop-top, soakin' wet
In a silk suit, tryin' not to sweat"
