Ricky Gervais + Simpsons = Recipe for Hillarity!!!!

This weekend the greatest idiot man children in television history will be meeting. The Simpsons to be aired on Sunday is one of the things I've most been looking forward to in the past few months. (that is some terrible sentence structure right there) It's written and guest starring Ricky Gervais who in case you didn't realize is an effing genius!!!!

Honestly if this episode is not the highlight of this (so far tepid)Simpson's season I may slit my wrists in a warm tub. Pray for quality.


Few things aremore pleasurable than surprise new music from one of your favourite* bands. Les Savy Fav surprised me by releasing two songs to emusic. Get them here! The first "When You Wake Up A Snake" is an uncharachteristicly poppy piano-y song. The second track "Rage In The Plague Age" is a souped up standard issue Les Savy track with the propulsive base line and shards of guitar that we all have come to expect from the best Brooklyn dance punk band ever. (Best dance punk band ever period?)

After the scare last year it's great to see Les Savy Fav making music and touring on their own terms. Thanks to my big brother for pointing out these song's existence to me.

Today's "Best Song Ever"

Danielson "Did I Step On Your Trumpet"

Some people go solo to get away from their bandmates and find there own voice. I suppose when you're a cult leader like Danielson your band's voice is your voice. On the brilliant "Did I Step On Your Trumpet" Danielson squaks out a song full of obserdities while a poppy chorus of girls keep up and echo everything he says. It's like a crazy dream set to a mrtial drum beat.
