Like Bill Simmons said, it makes jogging down the street epic, or something like that.

That's one of their good songs though. That and "Public Service Announcement."

NSW said something about it making his desk work epic, too.

Hence why I quoted it.

EYKIW is almost too easy of a target. If only it wasn't four clicks from PLEBA.

I haven't heard from him in two days. SEPTA may have indeed fucked his day up.

Anything EITS is almost guaranteed to segue well into Une A...the French Canadian song. It's not as epic, but similarly euphoric and shit.

It was trickier than one would think. EITS albums are so cohesive that many of their tracks don't have proper endings.

Nor have I... nor have I.

I could see him being at the brink of death at the hands of SEPTA, and then David Bowie and Beav fly in and save the day.

Bowie's totally lost confidence in his ability to help people.

I find I don't much either, but that's mainly due to the gig I saw being so good that the studio material just seems markedly inferior even all these months later. I'd love a few live albums of their stuff.

This is true.

Rough immediate segue, but it sounds good after that. The last minute of the Arcade Fire track is one of the most triumphant pieces of music I've ever heard.

It's full-on Ben breaking Elaine out of her wedding-type of music.
