I know I have to write about the con, and I will eventually, but I have to get this musical recommendation/comparison out of my head. It popped in there on the way home and I have to know if it makes any sense to you guys.

Modest Mouse's Good News for People Who Love Bad News, if made into a physical object, would be a van similar to the Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo, painted in swirls of no less than four colors. Streamers would fly from the antenna, and occasionally someone would poke their head out of the sunroof and go "WOOOOOOOO!"

The Great Destroyer by Low, on the other hand, is more like an armored conversion van: Heavier and a little slower to power up, but almost unstoppably solid. It's only painted one color all over, but welded to the roof is a giant motherfucking shark fin.

You know I am right about this.
