They Might Be Giants' new album The Spine came out today, along with The Spine Surfs Alone EP. I'm feeling kind of silly because I pre-ordered the CDs a little while ago, not knowing that I would be able to buy and download everything cheaper and faster than waiting for the CDs to arrive. Aargh. In the meantime, though, I'm listening almost continually to the first track, Experimental Film (from a RealAudio file here), which is one doozy of a good earworm. The Homestarrunner folks made a music video of it, too, which is kind of amusing. Check it out.

I love Homestarrunner.com - I used to watch the Strong Bad e-mails and other videos all the time.

But now I have a horrible computer with no sound card, so they're not very funny anymore :( And I usually connect at around 24.4 Kbps, so it takes forever.

Okay, enough of my self-pity: that really stinks about your CD/download thing. But, there are some advantages to buying it instead of downloading it: album art, little booklet, prettier CD, and it doesn't look like you stole it. :)
