Would you rather Bill Callahan tour Europe some more or cover Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff”?

Would you rather Bill Callahan tour Europe some more or cover Limp Bizkit's "Break Stuff"?

Aaaaaaand we’re back. Welcome once again, viewers, to the Bill Callahan Unassumingly Shuffles Around World channel. When last we left our lilting, shrugging, soft-spoken troubadour, he was wandering around Europe and the United States, spreading his message of apocalyptic love by performing entire set-length folk guitar covers of Sublime’s “Waitin’ For My Ruca” from 40 oz. to Freedom. We still don’t know how he juiced an hour and ten minutes out of that one song, or how he managed to not come across like a total misogynist prick while singing it, but hey!

But, awesome as that last round of dates was, it’s got absolutely nothing on this new batch of fall European shows that we just uncovered that highlight Callahan’s true range as a quippy action hero and suave romantic lead. Watch as Bill battles windmills, tangles with giants living high in the clouds, deftly escapes from witches who live in gingerbread houses, and more! And if we’re lucky, he might even mumble some words of wisdom along the way, like “a dream is a wish your heart makes” or “every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings.” Or, I don’t know. Something like that! Whatever keeps you watching. Maybe a Shrek dance number?
