Find Me On:
The Leftovers, an excessively dark series that follows the lives of those left on Earth after an unexplained, Rapture-like event, just completed its first season on HBO. I chatted with the guys from Wampire about the first season, why hopelessness and unanswered questions can be so appealing, and what they hope to see in season two.
Have you ever watched Fullmetal Alchemist? I haven’t! Luckily, I had Jordan Lee — the mind behind the beautiful chamber-folk band Mutual Benefit — to tell me all about the series, and his experience watching it with his little brother. (It’s sort of like Disney’s Life-Size, with Lindsay Lohan and Tyra Banks? Except anime, and about two brothers who are missing either parts or all of their body, and something about imperialism. Also alchemy.) (You’ll see.) Let’s go!
How old were you when the Unicorns broke up? It was ten years ago, so it would be your age minus ten. Oh my god. Were you even born yet? If you’re taking your age and subtracting ten and getting a number below zero, it’s unlikely that you were even alive during the period of time when Canadian unicorn band the Unicorns were alive and a band that you and your friends loved very much. Luckily for you, they’re officially back together, reissuing their beloved Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone?, and playing a few dates with Arcade Fire. To celebrate, I chatted with Nick Thorburn about the BBC’s I’m Alan Partridge, as well DVD players and also Enlightened.
Very cute that Ringo gets to do this tonight.
It’s like the ceiling can’t hold these guys!
Can they just call it a night after Beyonce’s performance?
THEY’RE HERE, THEY’RE HERE!
