Let the Countdown Begin!

Isn't life far more grand when you have something to look forward to? I mean, something to really look forward to? And I, ladies and gentlemen, have something to really look forward to. This coming event is up there on my All Time Something To Look Forward To List. I'm anticipating this like opening day of "Kill Bill Volume 1" in 2003, or the release day of Springsteen's album "The Rising" in 2002, or the Nebraska/Oklahoma game in 2001. It's big.

On Friday night I am seeing The Arcade Fire live.

The last time I saw them live (September 28, 2005) I wrote the very next morning - in my usual low-key way - that The Arcade Fire was "better than the Aurora Borealis". My friend Ashley pointed out that I'd never actually seen the Aurora Borealis but, really, do I need to see the Aurora Borealis with my own eyes to know it cannot compare to The Arcade Fire? I mean, have you heard the moment in "Haiti" when the whole song breaks down and then busts back in? That's not just better than the Aurora Borealis. It's better than the Brooklyn Bridge, too.

83 hours and counting..............

So what I meant in that last comment is that I would love to be seeing them on Friday. Though I would rather pass that off as an attempt to sound intelligent I fear it has left me lacking in that regard... So enjoy, please post how beautiful the show was... or I mean will be, or what it was after the fact...well you know what i mean...
