Old news, but a couple weeks ago Pitchfork ran a "what's in your CD player"-type feature on The Decemberists' Colin Meloy. The music picks are all well and good, but I was more interested in these two tidbits:
1) He owns a bouzouki. SHUT THAT BLOODY BOUZOUKI UP!!!
2) He names Snood as his favorite video game. While that's enough to endear him to any Haverford alum, the truly excellent news was his second choice: Dark Castle, which comes as absolutely no surprise. Nyuh-nyuh-nyuh-nyuh-nyuh!
Can't wait for them to come to town in October...
