Chronicling the creative process for Pop Zeus, the forthcoming Guided By Voices/Bob Pollard tribute comic- including sketches, concepts, finished art and whatever else is in my brain at the moment.

Gleemer (The Deeds Of Fertile Jim) - Two Cover Videos

Two dudes, two acoustic guitars, two web cams, two fighting dogs and one obscure but brilliant Guided By Voices song- Gleemer (The Deeds Of Fertile Jim). The Tobin Sprout penned original appears on the legendary Vampire On Titus LP. I'm partial to the second video with the kid and the out-of-tune guitar. The first guy, Ben Gibbard, is more off on the lyrics (obviously not familiar with GBVDB.com) and sings with too much earnestness (is that a word?) for my taste. And the fighting dogs are humorous but distracting. Regardless, its always fun to hear interpretations of GBV classics. Play 'em at the same time for even more fun...

I'm sitting on 2 heads
"Some seat" I heard some said
Just waiting for Sunday
Four days after Wednesday

The higher clouds are closing in
To hide the deeds of Fertile Jim

Could this be a brand new low
One that we can't talk about
One that we can't live without
One that we can join in now

I'm standing on 2 feet
Now buried in concrete
Just waiting for sundown
So as to be not found

The higher clouds are closing in
To hide the deeds of Fertile Jim

Could this be a brand new low
One that we can't talk about
One that we can't live without
One that we can join in now
