Sneak Preview! Next month's issue...

...of Least Ambiguous Song Lyrics Ever, featuring Arcade Fire's "Intervention":

"Working for the church while your life falls apart
Singing Hallelujah with the fear in your heart"

...which, is actually still less ambiguous than the earlier chorus, "Working for the church while your family dies."

Also, badass point to Win Butler for saying "Jesus Fucking Christ, we're in a church" during their performance at St. John's last month.

I was trying to choose the correct post to which I could make a snazzy reply that would be relevant, however I give up! HI ALEK! I saw C.'s little sister R. at a party, and was so happy to hear that you are both doing so well. I made a wild guess that you would have a blog-- and of course you do and it is fabulous! I've been a dedicated reader-- for like 2 weeks. Hope all is well and do drop a line sometime when you get the chance

say hi to C. and give her a hug from me! all the very best. - ylr

Just to give my other readers a flavor for yaamini -- upon seeing her name here, the first image that flashed in my head was of a 17-year old standing on top of th ottoman in my living room after prom, singing:

"See my rhymes...are the type of fly rhymes...that can only get DOWN with my crew"

Man, "Zealots" was the jam.
