|The seltzer king of Pittsburgh

| Barry Joseph, the "effervescent Jew", has a web site so singularly devoted to seltzer that he cannot let one song that mentions the drink go uncatalogued by his project. On my 13th album-a-day I have a song called "Seltzer," and so, the logical conclusion is a 15-minute interview of me about the song in his aptly named podcast, "Give Me Seltzer!"
An intriguing project...
|What an incredibly in-depth analysis! I've got to hand it to you for holding up to such seltz-o-centric scrutiny. I sure hope I'm never called upon to account for any of my AAD lyrics...
|Point is, Max, you never know....
|Holy shit, I always thought that it was "door coat thumping". Now it makes complete sense to me now.
|"door coat thumping" - an interesting interpretation.
Any way, Thanks Tom for the awesome interview. Wasn't he great?
|Funny how your speaking voice is so much lower than your singing voice.
Plus, I liked the analysis of this song, especially the botulism origins...
|You mean like, lower in pitch? Depends on the time of day, I think. But yeah, much harder to sing that low.
|People's voices tend to be lower for a little while after waking up, do to gunk in our throats not yet jostled out or something like that.
|I thought it was just like, more relaxed vocal cords, but yeah, that was probably the first I talked to anyone that day.
|No problem, Barry!
