Nouns is a pretty cool album. Have you heard the new No Age, Everything In Between? Songs probably aren't better, but recording quality is up and more electronic stuff. Pretty fun album especially "Fever Dreaming." Saw them in Bloomington in September and man they rip.

Major Lolz on that video.

Good post.

I like this list. I love the writing of that newcomer. I like that Joe's Cafe is a Pizza and Spaghetti house. I've never been to such a place. I loved He's Talking to the Fat Lady. Excellent read. I was very impressed with Dark Sky's revamp. I loved your novella. I loved Cut Through the Bone. I have never seen Breaking Bad. I like this list.
