Who said sailing is fine?

As the election gets closer and closer everyone becomes an expert. Here’s your chance to win a $500 gift card from Best Buy through The Washington Post’s electoral map contest. Pick each state’s winner and see how you do. You’ll find the contest on the front page of the post’s website.

Also, as the release date for Okkervil River’s latest album draws near the band have set up a youtube channel to hype the new tracks. Below are three videos the first of which is an introduction to the channel followed by the trailer for the album. After those two, if you’re still here, is the first of the 8 videos (I’m assuming that the instrumental interludes aren’t going to be covered. That’s a safe assumption. Right?) which features A.C Newman (New Pornographers) singing Lost Coastlines with Sheff. As much as i’ve come to dislike the New Porno’s, the video is a lovely start of the series and I look forward to seeing the rest of the album done by new people. 
It’s hump day and it’s time to go to sleep. It’s 4:19 in the morning.
