I succumbed to the hype. But in this particular case, it's worth it - I'm loving the Bloc Party album. Since downloading it this afternoon, I must've listened to the bridge of "This Modern Love" around 20 times; it's making sweet sweet love to my brain. If you're into a peppier Interpol with strains of The Walkmen and the energy of early Police, give it a spin. Assuming that you haven't already heard it, of course.
Was that a wierd Arrested Development tonight, or what? It felt like half the dialogue was re-looped and lots of story had to get cut out. Then again, Ben Stiller's "W" goatee was too priceless. Plus another appearance of G.O.B. on the Segway, leading to one of my favorite exchanges of the entire series:
G.O.B.: I've been looking for you. Michael: Looks like you're looking for dragons. In the future.
