This is one creepy-ass song--and I LOVE it.

I heard an old favorite today on Sirius/XM today, "Possum Kingdom" by Toadies. I blasted this shit driving the kids to school back in the day. (No wise-ass remarks about why one of my kids had some issues--it wasn't the music he was raised on, I assure you.)

ANYgay. Give a listen if you wanna be creeped out a bit. I thought it felt a little vampirey when I first heard it...then I thought it was about a murder that may or may not have actually occurred, with a little "Twin Peaks" tossed in for good measure. "She's DEAD. Wrapped. In plastic."

OK - just be sure to get him a psychiatrists appointment if Hunter writes some similar lyrics. I like the surreal vampire scenario better than the Leonard Lake one. You're right it's very creepy.
