08: Joe Zeal
I drove out to Beaverton to buy someone's old Sega Dreamcast and it came with a copy of NBA 2K. I used the feature where you could create a player and I made a misshapen huge thing with tiny little legs, the sort of creature that was impossible in reality. I named him Joe Zeal.
When you create something, no matter how misshapen or unlikely, it's something that's yours, something that you need to take care of.
I would end up recording this song on Malmo on my trip out to Nebraska, but that's later. This is the original version, never before released, and it's a little more put together, I guess.
