The History of Audubon Park, Part Sixteen

It just occurred to me that I never explained where the name of our first EP, "Angry Bees Outside, These Bees Inside," came from.

One afternoon, Jennifer and I were driving on 15-501, listening to NPR, because duh, that's what you do in Chapel Hill. There was a report about an abandoned house, maybe it was one that was foreclosed on and left in a bad state or something. I don't remember.

Anyway, the reporter said, "Angry bees outside. Dead bees inside."

"That would be a great title!" I said.

"It should be 'These Bees Inside,' Jennifer said. "'Dead Bees' sounds a little metal."

"We are sort of metal."

"No. Honey. I'm sorry."

She was right. We weren't metal at all.
