The Perm & The Skullet is a non-profit music blog devoted to bringing you music of all kinds.

Although we prefer that rustic, acoustic, unusual, whiskey soaked sound, we do like music of all styles and genres. If you have something you think we should listen to, by all mean, let us know.

All Links and MP3s are for sampling, evaluation, and introduction purposes only and are intended to provide exposure to said artist / film / site etc... If you like it, please go buy it.

Online, we recommend Insound, emusic or directly from the artist or their label. Locally, we recommend Schoolkids Records or Bull City Records.

Most Mp3 samples are only available for a limited time, usually a week or two. If there is something you missed, and it is currently unavailable or out of print, please let us know and we can see what we can do.

MP3s, Links, and Images can easily be taken down, so if you are the owner or their representation, and would like said link or file removed, just let us know and we'€™ll be happy to do so. You can E-mail me directly here for any questions or concerns or submissions.

Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Cost dad the election
Had garage sale while house sitting for neighbors
Peed in the back of a cop car
Got lap dance from Ray Moody's mom and didn't pay her
Made fun of people with accents
Snatched a kids Halloween's candy when he came to my trailer to trick-or-treat
I've been wasteful
Told Joy Bruce Willis was a ghost
Fixed a high school football game
Wasted electricity
Did donuts on football field during third quarter

Beat up Joy's nitpicking internet friend
Spray painted the bridge
Faked death to break up with a girl
Told Joy that Don Dade messed his pants on the golf course because she thought he was cute
Stole a car from a one-legged girl
Replaced Sheridan Lang's birth control pills with Tic-Tacs
Told Dodge we would have a father-son day at Mystery Fun Land and didn't take him
Harmed and possibly killed innocent people by second-hand smoke
Let Donny Jones serve jail Time for a crime I committed
Sucked gas out of a hose
Let mice out during a school play
I've been a litterbug
Stole beer from a golfer
Pantsed a Party Clown
Broke Jay's fancy figurine
Burned down a barn at camp
Stole a wallet froma guy in a gas station bathroom
Broke into a house, had a party and didn't clean up
Pretended to be handicapped to go to the front of lines at Adventure World
Ruined Joy's wedding
Helped myself to Crab Shack's tip jar
Slept with Crab man's fiancee
Neglected Randy
Sold Joy's hair
Stole cooler with donated kidney in it
Slept with prom date's sister on prom night

You're So Beautiful (Skill Saw Dreams)

Let me in
Knock down those walls
Nothing's never good for you

Start the fight
Piss in the wind with your boy moves
This is the role I chose

I'm not scared
Wicked sickness in the trees
Morning blades fall long upon me

Swimming in your ocean
Gasping for air
Pull apart my bones

You can take me

i've found a way to make you
i've found a way
a way to make you smile

i read bad poetry
into your machine
i save your messages
just to hear your voice
you always listen carefully
to awkwards rhymes
you always say your name
like i wouldn't know it's you
at your most beautiful

i've found a way to make you
i've found a way
a way to make you smile

at my most beautiful
i count your eyelashes secretly
with every one whisper i love you
i let you sleep
i know you're closed eye watching me
i thought i saw a smile

i've found a way to make you
i've found a way
a way to make you smile

"No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun--for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax--This won't hurt." - HST
