Here's the things I think about them.
1. The mostly-singing (head?) guy looks a little or a lot like Michael Pitt. Which makes me just want to watch Boardwalk Empire. And I can't. So: bummer. Michael Pitt was also very good in Funny Games. Add that to your queue.
2. Years ago, I put that song about neighborhoods on a mix cd for Thompson.
"What's a windodeyo?" he asked. "You know, when he's going to dig a tunnel from my windodeyo."
3. I heard an interview with Vincent Moon who made a doc about Arcade Fire. With some amount of emphasis, he said "They're not good people." Moon, I like the way you think. I don't know/don't care about the Arcade Fire specifically, but it was such an elegant kind of way to sum up a group or someone as a moral being. Good, or not good. I see most the people in my life in these categories I guess. When I think about it.
That's kind of it. Superbowl tonight too, where I spent most of the time wondering about the players with long hair.
