Dear Science

I suppose you could say that TV on the Radio had me at hello. Because let's face it, if you name your album "Dear Science" you fricking know I'm going to be all over that shit. It just came out today, and I have been listening to it non-stop on their MySpace page.

HOLY SHIT, DO I LOVE THIS ALBUM. I imagined I would, since I have fallen madly in love with every song I have ever heard from this band. But still, it's nice to feel so happy and in love with a brand new piece of music. They have gotten a little funkier... and have increased the presence of horns, which automatically gets you high fives. (I am a sucker for a solid horn line.)

Call me old fashioned, but when I truly love an album I feel as though I need to have an actual hard copy of it. I can't handle only having it digitally. I need to be able to hold it in my hands, and carefully inspect the liner notes during the first listen. I love that feeling. Hence why I am probably going to take a bus allllll the way downtown after work today just so I can buy it. And while I am there, I might as well look for some new pants or something, right? Right.

In the meantime, you can watch this rad video and reach the same conclusion I have: IT IS AWESOME.

I found a Periodic table of elements shower curtain today. That has to do with science.

I'm the same way about owning albums that I really like (sometimes multiple copies/versions if I LOVE it). I've been trying to buy fewer CDs in favour of the LP version of many of the albums I have digitally.

Also, couldn't you just walk to Best Buy? It's close to your work. Who needs pants anyway.

I had thought of going to Best Buy... but they don't have it on the website. I envisioned myself walking in there and asking for the New Releases section, only to have some kid say, "Oh, you want the Pussycat Dolls?" and then I would have to punch them in the frigging face. And probably go to jail. I just don't need that right now, you know? But yes, I suppose I could go check there first before getting on the bus. Heh.
