This Is the Way I Feel (Star Records, Dallas)

This is the way Nathan Woodruff feels. A grinning, lopsided form of happy. It's the kind of happy that requires your most ruffled shirt and a bow tie tied just so. Nathan has the confidence to say, "I'll wait 'til after my big photoshoot to get a haircut."

When you feel how Nathan Woodruff feels, there's no need to trim your sideburns. When you feel like this, you can say with a smile, "I'm going to put out a record of awful songs that no one will buy except people who are going to make fun of it."

Well, what are you laughing at? Where's your big record? I wish I could tell you more about Nathan, but Google is little help. He may have been the pastor of a church in Arlington who died recently, or he may have been a singer in a gay disco band.

It's difficult to say which one is more likely. - Nick DiFonzo

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
