my attention has been drawn by my pal Bob Morales to the fact that Melbourne comedy band Tripod can be seen on Youtube. Here they are with the Umbilical Brothers doing 'Air Guitar'. The second piece is titled 'Hot girl in the comic shop' (or comic store as they say in the US) and I expect some of my readers will get a laugh out of it. These are from the band's regular spot on ABC's Sideshow last year.

Tripod are brill. My friends and I spent many an afternoon ignoring each other just so we could listen to their stuff.

Actually, "comic shop" is the typical American phrase too. American English doesn't just substitute store for shop, it makes a distinction between them: stores are large and impersonal, shops are small and cozy.

Wait, is this not the linguistics blog?

To my punchy friend Michael G --

There are days that I absolutely DO feel like a gut.
