    Okay.. So I was told that the "Uma" that J refers to in "Quicksand" is Uma Thurman? Who knows anything about this?

    P.S. My babydog is named Uma just because of this lyric

    In what part of the song does he say "uma"? I don’t remember that lyric but I’ve probably been thinking he says something else. J’s a hard man to understand sometimes!

    He also mentions ‘Cindy`s lies’.Cindy Crawford?

    Uma went to J`s high school I believe.There`s some myths about them dating but it`s just rumours.
    Uma bought a house in my province for some reason ::)

    My husband, who knows waaay more about this than me, has always said the same thing about J and Uma in high school. It is all just mysterious though.. Was there something more to it?

    That was great. I especially liked the part about Sonic Youth’s "Teenage Riot" being written about J..

    Honestly, as far as the whole Uma issue goes, I would hate to think of J pining over a skinny model-type anyways..

    Just listened to this the other day and picked it out right away. If you don’t know to look for it, "uma" can sound pretty weird in a song I guess.

    Hi,
    I’m very sorry to have to tell you that this is a cover of David Bowie’s "Quicksand", released 1971 on the album "Hunky Dory". So this is for shure not about Uma Thurman and also not written by J.
    I know that there is no note about it in the "Whatever’s Cool With Me"-E.P., but here’s a link to proof it:

    As far as I remember, not having Bowies’ tune available for listening right now, I’m pretty sure that Bowie sings "Churchills’ lies". Or some other historic politician… J has changed some of the lyrics.

    He did credit it to Bowie.Check yr cd :)

    I like the lyric "You can tell me all about it at the next Ball(B.A.L.L.?) show.Is he talking about B.A.L.L. which was Gumball before they changed their name or Baseball?

    Thanks Felix, but you are telling me nothing new. I already knew that this was a David Bowie song. However, I don’t believe the "Uma" and "Cindy" references are in the Bowie song, right? Maybe I am wrong about that part.. No time to check at the moment..
