New Regina Spektor- "All The Rowboats".  I think it's a good one.   Darker than we're used to.

I want to go to there.  Disneyland Tokyo that is.  Where all the Disney princesses look like me.

Cute stop-motion for Belle and Sebastian's cover of "Crash."  I made these block people before (see below) and it takes AT LEAST 1 hour and 3 people per block person... and excruciating xacto-cutting.

I either really love or really hate Silversun Pickups songs. 
Should I love or hate their new track, "Bloody Mary"?

Throw-back to one of the first cassette tapes I ever owned.  And just now I realize that "One of Us" is a country song!?!

P.S. Bring back Joan of Arcadia
