But seriously, who was it that said they don't like the last three songs?

I find Humiliation and Pink Rabbits are two of my favorites here. Don't see how a fan of the National could dislike them, but that's just me. They remind me lyrically of some ALLIGATOR shit. Yes.

I've already changed my mind about what I said of the last song yesterday evening when I realized it has a Violent Femmes lyric. I like Humiliation and Pink Rabbits a lot too, two of my favs on the album. I pretty much like every song quite a bit.


I don't know much about this show. It's on PBS, right?

Oh man. That's too bad. Fireproof clicked with me after its opening couplet. Brilliant tune. Let's go.

I picked up J-Roll.

This Is the Last Time didn't strike me at first, but I have quickly come to love it. I have only listened past I Need My Girl once, as I keep getting interrupted. I will rectify that as soon as possible, because I remember Pink Rabbits being fantastic.

Me, but I've changed my mind to only not liking pink rabbits now.


Top five favorites:
Demons
Graceless
Slipped
I should live in salt
I need my girl

Order subject to change. But I like this is the last time a lot, too.

Oof. He's still a great defensive value for the Phillies but for fantasy stats he has just been miserable. His ISO is down, his base stealing is down and his strikeouts are up. Plus the Phillies don't drive in runs so he's not going to score a bunch.

I love that line. Def. one of my favorites, though I absolutely love the ending of Graceless too.

All of my thoughts of you
Bullets through rotten fruit
Come apart at the seams
Now I know what dying means

I am not my rosy self
Left my roses on my shelf
Take the white ones, they're my favorites
It's the side effects that save us

Such great imagery that conveys the emotions perfectly.

Demons is basically the last two years of my college life. I wrote a similar line to "I am in love with everyone I grew up with" about a year before Matt did that I intend to still use in my recordings.
