Goodfellas isn't on any of the streaming services I have. The Beatles movie it is.

The Beatles movie was....not great. A few funny/charming moments. And boy would I love to snog Lily James. For Queen and Country.

Edit to add: Fucking Goodfellas *is* streaming on Hulu and I forgot I have Hulu. Damn.

It had its moments. Not something I would have paid to see in a theater, but not a complete waste of time.

I saw it on a flight, it's satisfactory enough to pass a couple of hours or so.

Happy 10th anniversary to High Violet. This was the album that made me a fan of The National. I remember obsessively playing this record during the summer of 2010, right out of college and trying to figure out next steps. It was a great companion and still connects with me deeply whenever I hear those songs.

Just gave it a relisten and I always am astounded at how consistent it is. Even "Runaway" has many great moments. Besides the obvious singles on the record, "Lemonworld" and "England" just floor me every time I hear them.

Afraid Of Everyone, Bloodbuzz Ohio, and Lemonworld comprise perhaps my favorite stretch of three subsequent songs by The National.

Yeah, High Violet was the album that pushed me from casual admirer to huge fan.

Yeah, it's terrific. Whenever I listen I'm reminded that it's better than I think it is. Gun to my head, it's probably their best record, although I got burnt out on it (and TWFM) and so prefer to listen to the two most recent records and Sad Songs.

DI was my way into the band, specifically Looking for Astronauts on a Bonnie list, followed by this record, and then when I saw them live on this tour, I became a mega fan that I've been ever since. Also my partner's favourite band, so we share a special bond over The National. A truly brilliant band that means a whole lot to a heap of people.

Seems like that Dylan album that's coming out is a double, and over 70 minutes long.

I first saw them live about four weeks after High Violet was released. What a show.

1. Brainy
2. Anyone's Ghost
3. Bloodbuzz Ohio
4. Mistaken for Strangers
5. Secret Meeting
6. Squalor Victoria
7. Afraid of Everyone
8. Little Faith
9. All the Wine
10. Available
11. Conversation 16
12. Apartment Story
13. The Geese of Beverly Road
14. Abel
15. Daughters of the SoHo Riots
16. Sorrow
17. England
18. Fake Empire

19. Runaway
20. Lemonworld
21. Mr. November
22. Terrible Love

He wandered into the audience during Abel and settled next to me on the floor to finish the last chorus. Very memorable.

Not quite; from what I've read the second disc contains only the epic Murder Most Foul, and that the whole thing would have fit on one CD.

According to someone who found the info on iTunes:

1. I Contain Multitudes (4.38)
2. False Prophet (6.00)
3. 6.41
4. 6.32
5. 4.12
6. 4.13
7. 4.29
8. 7.22
9. 9.34
10. Murder Most Foul (16.56)


Not sure what the reasoning is behind the separation; hopefully we'll get a clarification at some point.

I see that Bryan Adams has decided to go down the path of "remind everyone you exist with a really bad take".

Love that he took it down from Twitter and replaced it with something bland, but has left it up on Instagram with comments turned off.
