This is a Thing That Exists: Steve Albini on Lil Bub's Big Show

The internet loves cats, especially cute ones. So of course it was only a matter of time before Lil Bub got her own talk show. For those of you with lives, Lil Bub is this cat that is a dwarf, a permakitten, and has some other genetic deformity that gives her a short lower jaw and no teeth, so her tongue always hangs out. This makes her adorable, and clearly deserving of her own talk show. Who appears on episode 3 of this talk show you ask? Why, Steve Albini of course. Most of you probably know Steve Albini as the recording engineer (not producer) of such acts as Nirvana, the Pixies, Bush, and Jimmy Page & Robert Plant. He is also the frontman of Shellac, and before that Big Black. If you're unfamiliar with Big Black, watch this video below:

I know the first time I ever heard Songs About Fucking I couldn't wait to see Albini give a tiny, adorably deformed cat a tour of his studio.
