Wednesday's Song of the Week on Thursday. Because it's still freaking raining.

I don't even want to talk about this goddamned rain. Or the fact that it's been in the low 60s since Labor Day. Or that, you know, summer's over and shit. I SAID I DON'T WANT TO FLIPPING TALK ABOUT IT.

What I would like to talk about is how much I am in love with this bearded man in that delightful suit. Good lord I love a well-dressed bearded man in appropriately matching footwear with a good leather band watch. Now THIS is a man I'd like to enjoy a glass of whiskey with. Oh yeah, and this song is pretty sick too.

I've been listening to the National since a friend in one of my college photography classes pulled up a stool next to me in the darkroom one day and handed me one of their current albums and I realize how musically snobby this sentence sounds, but I'd just like to be sure we're all clear on how cool I am. "Check these guys out, I think you'll like them. They're not very popular, but they are incredibly good." And damn, she was right. And I'm happy to see that five years later (and 10 years after their first album), they are gaining some well-deserved popularity, finally breaking out of the indie-music snob scene and into the greater wave of popular music knowledge.

I didn't listen to the song, BUT I've been up in the Boston area for work since the end of August and I'm in love with not only the cool weather, but the rain, too. Make you a deal? You can have Florida where I'm supposed to return at the end of the month and I'll take Boston. Until it snows. Then all bets are off. :-)
