Sounds like Tom Waits in a circus band.

I wasn't looking back at the meaning of the word a century or two ago, but at how it was used in the U.S. in the 1980s around the time of the Dire Straits song, "Money for Nothing."

Like Engine said, I think the slur stems from homophobia. I meant that in the Dire Straits song, the use of "***got" as a putdown of someone regardless of that person's sexual orientation was a broadening of the meaning of the slur, "***got," that was also used around that time to refer specifically to gay people. I remember how "***got" was used in the '80s as a general putdown of any disliked person, and the reason the term was a putdown is that it implied the person was gay (even if the speaker didn't believe this), which was supposed to be bad and humiliating.

I don't think the word "***got" that Dire Straits use in the song relates directly to a bundle of sticks (faggot) or a cigarette (fag), because faggot meaning a bundle of sticks is pretty much obsolete in the U.S. and fag meaning cigarette is mostly used in Britain.

My first foray into John Zorn, because of a Metal Wars battle. I feel like this album is mocking my utter and complete uncoolness with it's own utter and complete coolness.

Van Halen - "Dance the Night Away"
Nice guitar playing and a pretty vocal chorus for the chorus. I especially love Eddie's guitar solo at 1:58 where he simply touches rather than strums the guitar strings with his fingers, showing how delicate and sensitive an electric guitar is.

Love, love, love. The atmosphere is so perfect. If you like Burial/Gold Panda/Shlohmo, you'd like this. (Though don't get excited and think the whole E.P. is like this. It's not. Just this song. Whore.)
