new sport: Brother Sport


My favorite of the new A.C. songs, but I like "Safer" a lot too. The title intro is a little dull, but when the actual song starts and especially when when the 3:40 mark hits, it becomes one of the most sublime moments since Loveless. I think, anyway.

I don't see how I can't make that show. It'll be short, though. If they're touring this summer I may just make a trip to see a real show.

Trippy.

I could stare at those background lights all day.

Damn, you weren't exaggerating about this song! It's fantastic. (i even like the title intro. whoops.)

I must admit that I'm such a sucker for Avey's bleats, but I think the euphoria starts bleeding for me at the 6-min point.

Looks like I need to keep up.. I haven't gone seeking any unreleased AC material. I'm so ashamed.

Well, I have no choice but to see them on Saturday in NYC--who else am I going to see, Kings of Leon?--and hopefully they can break that on/off/on/off hold they have on me.

Also--Culture Shock was great; Joe and I got you a Cat Power poster in order to organize a shamless trade for that Kid A you've got on the wall, even though you're an RHater. If that doesn't do it, we'll throw in a Place to Bury Strangers and a Fridge one too.

Okay, deal.

That trip probably got you ready to start school. You should really think about heading down early for some kind of early freshman summer course or something.
