Trivia/Info

  • Bubble's of Teaneck[1] is a laundromat located in Teaneck, New Jersey.
  • Flansburgh mentioned in an interview[2] that the "baby tooth" line from "Canajoharie" weaseled its way through his subconscious and showed up in the lyrics of this song.
  • The references to Ichabod Crane and Sleepy Hollow seem to recall the "Headless Horseman" line in "You Probably Get That A Lot", though when asked about it on Twitter, Flans remarked[3] that "You Probably Get That A Lot" was "really a different thing than Authenticity Trip reference-wise...".
