Arcade Fire Is Now Played Out Mainstream Garbage

I’ve never been a big fan of the one link post, because I feel like it’s lazy…but then on some days when I’m feeling lazy, I end up becoming a huge fan of the one link post. I feel my logic here is sound.

Apparently Arcade Fire won a Grammy last night for Album of the Year…? Or something…? I don’t know, I didn’t even think the Grammys (Grammies?) were still around. I certainly didn’t think anyone actually still cared about them…but apparently I was very much mistaken, because The Suburbs being named Album of the Year elicited a negative backlash of internet hate unseen since the Gawker layout redesign…from like last week. (Good thing we are Canadian and were not negatively affected!)

This in turn, has spawned what is probably one of the most enjoyable websites from recent memory – Who Is Arcade Fire??!!? I don’t know exactly what is collected here, but it is certainly a very highly concentrated distilled form of it…and there is just something so pure and wonderful about it that I can’t even really put it into words.

Absolutely delightful. I think my absolute favourite so far is this recent one, from Goose Douche (who has a website called Douchebags Love Grey Goose, which is also very enjoyable)…the comment is crafted beautifully, with the precision of an electron microscope…it brings a tear to my eye.

Man, and I felt out of it when I didn’t know who The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger was when they were on Conan. The acoustic version of Jardin du Luxembourg sounds so much better…and I feel like such a pretentious ass for being able to say that, IT’S GLORIOUS.

Okay, one more for the road…

Destined to fight the world's evil, The WAMBAG endures massive battles involving impossible stunts, races on horse-pulled carriages, and the desecration of enchanting medieval castles (all done with dizzying computer graphics). Not only does the eye candy keep on coming, the tongue-in-cheek writing and deep Transylvanian accents perfect the film with a dose of dark humor.

Apparently PHP7 doesn't support the same function calls I wrote in 2008? I should fix this at some point.
