Hopefully things will be back to normal by tomorrow... In the meantime, Birmingham (UK, that is -- not Alabama), artrock collective Misty's Big Adventure are cheering me up immeasurably. Usually, I wouldn't go for something quite so twee and ridiculous and well, fun, but well. I am sick. This could all just be a bizzaro fever dream.
RIYL The Boy Least Likely To, Guillemots, and collectives with like, 17 members and a horn section and deadpan, dour-voiced lead singers. And sure, they may resemble that other giant collective who wear white suits and have giant, dancing stuffed animals -- but really, that's mostly superficial.

I'm going back to bed now.
