A Song a Week 47: The Nemesis – Hot Potato (Pugilism and the Third Autistic Cuckoo cover)

Monday, December 27th, 2010

This is probably the geekiest song I’ll ever do… The song comes from the book The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul by Douglas Adams. In the book, Dirk Gently forgot he had a client that he was supposed to meet at 6:30 AM. When he gets there, a little over five hours late, there […]
