Two sips from the cup of human kindness and I'm shitfaced.

Yesterday I needed something to listen to on the drive out to visit my parents, so I randomly grabbed some Cd's (Yes, I know. I KNOW.) and headed out the door. The first one I popped in was Twin Cinema by The New Pornographers. It was the only thing I listened to all day yesterday. It is the only thing I have listened to today.

Holy shit. How had I possibly forgotten how friggin' good this album is? Obviously I am a giant idiot. It really is THAT GOOD. I'm so happy with myself right now for having rediscovered it. I love it so much, that I may have given it the best record review I have ever written. In the form of this tweet from this morning:

Twin Cinema! I want to use science to take this album, turn it into a boy
and date the shit out of him.

It's totally fucking true. If it were actually possible for me to date Twin Cinema, I would. I would marry Twin Cinema, and then I would change my last name to Cinema because the love is like, THAT DEEP AND INTENSE.

But for now, I will probably just listen to it seven more times. Whatevs.

I don't think that I have listened to that since it came out. Maybe I should give it a re-visit.

Sean was in a band with Carl Newman in the 90s.

Seriously? That's crazy! My coworker just told me that his wife knows Carl Newman's dad, and he gave her a copy of his new album. So funny.

I'm serious. Even crazier is that they've known each other since they were teens and both had super long hair.
