Friday Jabber

Happy Friday the 13th! Waking Life was very interesting animation indeed. at times the dialogue (indeed for most of the middle part of the film) was heavy-handed timeless philosophizing, stuff that is permanently asked and never answered. it was damn trippy to watch though. today i have meeting galore. and now:

The Friday mp3.

today the Friday mp3 is brought to you by The Shins. These guys are from Tucson, AZ and at first I didn’t dig them too much because I thought all of their songs sounded like they were stoned. They grew on me however, their harmonies remind me of classic country and bluegrass music, but what strikes me most is their ability to sound like a different band with each song, Sort of like the Union Underground, but not goth. Caring is Creepy in particular I think could have been easily produced by Robert Smith over in Bonny Britain. So without further adieu I give you New Slang.
