O Brother, Why Art Thou?

The following is a transcript of a text message exchange that took place yesterday between me and my younger brother, Rob (AKA Brother Younger):

ME: Julian Cope is playing at Latitude… 🙂

ROB: Great! Who’s Julian Cope?

ME: Philistine!

ROB: I’m not sure who they are, either

ME: You’re saying you haven’t heard of Phil S. Stein?

ROB: Any relation to Phyllis Stein?

That’s how things are between Rob and me.

    Is he any relation to Phil O. Sopher?

    Or, for that matter, Phil A. Dandrum…

    I’ll get my coat
