Please note

1. Low have a couple new videos up at their site; the one for the "Optimimi" version of "Hatchet" is kind of cool in that it's an extended, funky, very different version of the song. But while I like the groove, it also makes me appreciate that they went with the version of the song they did on Drums and Guns, as this one would stick out like a sore thumb. The video for "Belarus," meanwhile, reminds me how much I love cross country skiing (which I haven't done in... a decade?) and is easily my favourite of the Drums and Guns videos so far. I love that they're doing all of them.

2. Who has the best crowd in North American football? We do. I need a season pass for next year.

That version of "Hatchet" is great! It has a little Schoolhouse Rock vibe to it.

Good point! I wasn't thinking of it that way, but you're right.
