Hey there champies! I’ve been outta commission for awhile, throwing glamorous parties in New York and staging protests outside of my local public school to stop Obama from indoctrinating our school children into his Communist trans-gender agenda, but now I’m back to talk about the latest additions to my iTunes. Let’s get down to it, boppers!

HOLY G*DDAMN MOTHERF*CKING APE-FIST*NG PEE CLOWN, this is a great record! Okay, so full disclosure: I never really got swept up in the whole Arcade Fire phenomenon. I really want to love Funeral as much as everyone else does, but there’s something about it that feels disingenuous to me. Maybe not disingenuous … that might not be the right word. It just has all the trappings of being an emotionally sweeping epic, but something about it seems cold … the same feeling I get from Beck and TV on the Radio. For whatever reason, it just doesn’t make me feel that buzz in my tingly parts the way I think it should.
