This of course goes out to Jay-Z and Beyonce:
It hasn’t even been a full day since At The Drive-In announced their 2012 reunion. But already everyone I know – people I never would’ve expected to listen to At The Drive-In – are freaking out about this. The band are breaking their decade-plus long hiatus, playing Coachella, and hopefully (fingers crossed) will play some East Coast dates as well.
Let’s all watch this video of the band playing on Letterman. If they can recreate even a fraction of this excitement in 2012, we are extremely lucky.
Still the purtiest song we heard last year (or this one). [via]
Joseph Herscher is an artist who makes Rube Goldberg machines. Recently, The New York Times did a write-up on him and his impractical contraptions. “I’m trying to make it as absurd and useless as possible,” he told the Times, which seems like it could sum up a lot of the pursuits of ourselves and many of our friends.
