Pornography and the Rapture

Well, as of right now the rapture of the Christian faithful hasn't occurred. I've wasted my morning listening to Together by the New Pornographers. I don't really care for it. It has it's moments where some parts are better than others, but nothing comes close to the jaw dropping awesomeness that is all over Electric Version and Twin Cinema, two stupidly good pop records.

I've always appreciated the name The New Pornographers. It really articulates one way people react to music, both in positive and negative ways. Plus, it gives mom a false perception of the music I'm listening to because, it just so happens that, pornography is a dirty four-letter word.
