I don't think they're at their best on the TV performances I've seen. SNL? Eh. I didn't think Regine sounded that great, and they seemed a bit off. Ditto the Grammys - just not as good as their usual live shows.

Nope. I stuck my head out and claimed it my favorite a few weeks after it came out, and I most definitely still feel that way. The only song I wouldn't mind not being on there is Deep Blue, and even that isn't that bad.

Ready To Start sounded good - they should have done that first and then an off the cuff Month Of May to end it (and with those background vocals mixed down a bit).

Someone started a blog a few years ago called "Arcade Fire Stole My Basketball" in order to accuse Win Butler of having stolen his basketball.

Edit: That's the second time Cori has beaten me to the punch today.

Well, I have to run to choir rehearsal now, so you'll get a chance to beat me to the next explanation that's needed 'round these parts.
