I really need all my friends to watch this.
Ever notice how many things look like genitals at first glance?
Oh my god, I laughed so hard at this!
I can’t wait for this.
What I love about The National is how you can listen to a song a hundred times while truly enjoying it. And then, all of a sudden, it dawns on you, you make a connection, you discover something small or big, you have the right emotional state or experienced the right kind of experience, the lyrics describe something you can truly relate to or the melody is brilliant and you get goose bumps all over your body and for a moment everything falls together and it is overwhelming. This one song just hit the spot and will never be the same to you, and they made countless of these songs during their whole existence.
