Beck on Termites

Beck is a loser. Err...I mean Beck as a Loser. Right...that's better.

A couple of lines from the song Loser:
And my time is a piece of wax falling on a termite
And it's choking on the splinters
Whiskey Clone has a quote from Beck's response about those lines:
"Beck was asked about where he got his image 'termites choking on the splinters' on Modern Rock Live in February, 1994 (the most absurd interview Beck's ever done). He explained that he was living on the roof of a shack and saw a termite up there chilling with a 40, and it started choking, but he was unable to save it."
Wow...I never thought about it. Can a termite choke? Well, with the heat, swarming season is upon us this September. So, for the sake of my sanity, I hope Beck's right. Ah heck...what am I worried about? Beck's always right!

I sound sarcastic. That's usually just part of my charm. However, let it be known that I do like Beck. 'Nuf said.
