Music: We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank by Modest Mouse

An oldie, but a goodie; we've always been big time fans of Modest Mouse. Their most recent album, We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, is one of our favorites. This album is more like Good News for People Who Love Bad News and less like the older albums, such as The Moon and Antarctica.

"I was patiently erasing and recording the wrong episodes
After you had proved my point wrong;
It wasn't like I'd let it go, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh.
I just wanted to catch the last laugh of this show.

Yeah, it would've been, could've been worse than you would ever know.
Oh the dashboard melted, but we still have the radio."

"Everyone's unhappy,
Everyone's ashamed.
Well we all just got caught looking
At somebody else's page.
Well nothing ever went
Quite exactly as we planned.
Our ideas held no water,
But we used them as a dam."
--Missed the Boat

Quick vote: We heart this album and whole-heartedly recommend it to y'all, our loyal reader(s).
