Pop culture treasure, high culture trash.

How are things on the West Coast?

Paul Banks' vocals sound slightly different this time around. Flatter and more nasal. I like them but I like Pants's facsimile even more. She and I agreed it's not so much a Paul Banks impression as it is Ethel Merman coughing up Fred Schneider doing a Paul Banks impression. Worlds of croaky sprechstimme difference.

I can't listen to Interpol anymore. I played Turn On the Bright Lights to death when it came out, but now it feels so inhibited and contrived, so patently false. I can't imagine what I saw in it.

Wow! What a change of heart! Why did this come about, do you think?
