The Shins' newest: Soundtrack to a sequel not yet filmed?

emobraff42: Hey.

quirkychildlikegirlwoman: Hhgrisdfkmjs!

emobraff42: What?

quirkychildlikegirlwoman: Sorry. I sometimes feel like I have to do something no one’s ever done before.

emobraff42: Like, cure cancer?

quirkychildlikegirlwoman: No. Only stupid things no one’s done before.

emobraff42: What you just said sounds like it really means something. [pause] So I’m off my meds and listening to this amazing new Shins song, "Phantom Limb." It’s like every other Shins song you’ve heard, meaning it’s awesome. It’s like if the voice of your generation stood up and spoke, and then repeated itself for a few tracks.

quirkychildlikegirlwoman: I wish I were there to catch your tears in a Dixie Cup.

emobraff42: Me, too. Listening to this song makes me think of how mymom slipped in the tub and died due to my father’s possibly criminalnegligence.

quirkychildlikegirlwoman: Hrerejk!

emobraff42: You already did that.

quirkychildlikegirlwoman: Mashed totally different keys this time.

emobraff42: I love you, you unpredictable pixie. Let’s shareearbuds, blast this song and scream in the rain. Then have vaguelycreepy sex.

quirkychildlikegirlwoman: Right after I finish my geometry homework.

    That’s hillarious! I like the Shins…does that make me a quirkychildlikegirlwoman? I hope not.
    Does anyone else find it troubling myspace has become THE place to showcase new music and artists?

    “Only stupid things no one’s done before.”? Isn’t there something similar to this in ‘Garden State’?

  • will Holston

    I loved ‘Garden State’ but that’s frikking hillarious

  • fredric

    emobraff42… he DOES kind of look like he could be 42. which makes the quirkychildlikegirlwoman thing even more creepy.

  • jaime

    That was the BEST Garden State satire I’ve ever seen. That’s hilarious.

    My buddy got the whole CD off bittorrent, if that’s your thing. The CD is actually really good, and I’ll be buying it the day it comes out.

  • Jasper

    Yes Lora I think that is a bit troubling….
    Loved the ‘Garden State’ parody!! I almost didn’t get it. I saw the jumbled letters and thought something was wrong with my computer so I just clicked the link and the first time it didn’t work so that solidified my suspicions. Now I realize that I’m not that clever and and my computer is fine. Not that you needed to know any of that but I thought I’d share.
    Oh yeah, good song by the way.

    Hey Scott,
    Do yourself a favor and check out “The Venture Brothers” on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. Phantom Limb will become clear to you then. Not to mention quirkychildlikegirlwoman, who can only be Dr. Girlfriend. ;-)
