If you're a Clouds virgin, I'd recommend saying "fuck you" to abstinence.

I misread your earlier post then. Sorry about that.

Hell yes.

Do Transmissions, too.

Agreed on both counts. Soft Bulletin and Yoshimi are wonderful and all, but Ronald Jones-era Flips will always be my favorite.

"Lightning Strikes the Postman," FTW. The opening guitar riff to that song gets stuck in my head so often, more than any other Lips song for sure, and probably more than most songs I listen to.

EitS + Flaming Lips. My mind would be positively blown if I could make it to one of those shows.

Agreed, that would be a stellar bill.

You'd have to clean bits of brain off the floor if I had a chance to see them both. Wow.

I'm upset I didn't pick up tickets for Explosions on the 4th.

Boat party a.k.a. The Life Aquatic with Impy Zissou will make up for it.

Crank up the Bowie, or find your best Portuguese singer/songwriter friend and you've got a hell of a shindig.

MGMT and Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are going to be on "Embryonic." Apparently the Karen O part was, literally, done over the phone.

Pitchfork: MGMT, Karen O Guest on Flaming Lips LP

Dave Fridmann produced MGMT's album, so it makes sense in that regard. It'll be interesting to see how they're incorporated into their song and how much they contribute to it.

Needless to say, that is really fucking cool.

I heard some band on the radio last week that apparently used to be the Flaming Lips road crew and one of the band members are apparently nephews or somehow related to one of the Flaming Lips members. They sounded quite a bit like the Flaming Lips, but they were still quite enjoyable. I can't remember their name though, so my entire story is pointless. I'm sorry for having wasted all your time. I'm going to punish myself by listening to MGMT.

Stardeath and White Dwarfs? The lead singer is Wayne's nephew.
He's the dude second from the left, kinda looks like Wayne in his younger days. They've got an album that came out last month, I believe, called The Birth. I also saw them open for the Lips on New Year's 2007/2008, and they're good. Pretty sure they were part of the "Borderline" single that the Lips put out on Record Store Day too.

Yeah, I think that's them. Thank you for helping me avoid having to listen to MGMT. I forgive you of your copy right infringement trespasses.
