Did you scoff when Pitchfork named Person Pitch by Panda Bear the best album of 2007? I did.
But after listening to it for the past few months, I've come to agree that it was one of the best albums of last year. (In Rainbows and Kala are probably 1 and 2 on that list) Here's Animal Collective, of which Panda Bear is a member, playing the first track "Comfy in Nautica" at Coachella last week.
There's like a two minute audio freakout before he starts singing the actual song so...y'all can skip that if you so desire.

Hey, shut up a second! I'm getting to that.
First, a fond farewell to Nick Gurewitch's Perry Bible Fellowship. I read recently he's gone into "semi-retirement" as of February to focus on new projects. Apparently there will be new strips, but not with a recurring schedule or any regularity. Go read the archive, it's an incredible body of work.
So, why no blogs? Well the short answer is we've been really busy. Not dicking around beating the Lost Levels either, mind you, but working on scads of new material. We're hammering out the specifics on a number of ideas we've had for a long time and even plotting our first foray into a different medium (hint: It's not Baroque Pop). It would require a very loooong explanation if I went into specifics, plus you're not allowed to know our secrets. Not now, not ever. Do you read me, sir? Those secrets are ours.
Anygay, lots of fun stuff happening on our end. Hopefully some small percentage of it will make it's way on to your viewscreens, and you'll forget all about us neglecting the blog for nearly an entire week.

Our new video For Your Eyes Only blew up over the weekend with over a million views on break.com. We were also featured on Friday's episode of Attack of the Show on G4.
If you didn't DVR it (you didn't?),
you can view it here you're out of luck, because now it's gone forever, shmohawk. Our sketch is about 2:10 in. Olivia Munn loves it. We love her so that's cool I guess.
Thanks errybody for your views! You are what make these dreamy dreams come true.

People are so stupid. It's so obviously 1-ups that it disgusts me to think it's coming in second. Listen to me schmohawk: If huge gold coins were everywhere, they would no longer be precious, making them worthless. Use your brain, dummy.
And for the record, my true answer isn't even given as an option. I want to live in a world where firesticks might await you around any corner.

Hey, enough with the sports analogies already. I get it. I see what you're doing there.
"This week we're going to need a full-court press from you guys!"
Really? Are we trying to shut down the opposing company's leading scorer? Are they making inbound passes too easily within their half of the market?
"Yeah, that was a fumble on our part, but Chet stepped up and hit a real home run at the product unveiling! Just a knockout!"
Do you hear yourself? Are you describing a game of blernsball? How many more nuggets of solid gold wisdom will that Cuisinart wit you've acquired through the years spit out?
"We're on the one yard line here folks, and I need you to punch it in for the touchdown!"
Who are the 'folks' in this example, exactly? If its the people in my department, I don't think we're going to get much of a push on the line of scrimmage. I say kick the field goal or its going to be 4th and Goal on the 26 yard line before you know it.
"I'm sorry Billy, strike three as they say. We're going to have to let you go. You've just dropped the ball one too many times. "
Would you like to make that a combo for an additional 99 cents?
