I can’t believe there aren’t more people backing me up on the fact that we need more Flanscat pictures GET WITH IT PEOPLE
Idlewild tracklisting is up. Good songs and all (other than it continues to mystify me how anyone over the age of 6 can enjoy “Clap Your Hands”), but I’m having a lot of “you thought _____ was a better representative of that album than _____???” moments, and yeh, I continue to be disappointed that they didn’t throw EVEN JUST ONE new or at least “well this hasn’t been on anything easily available before” track at us, rar. AND YET I’M STILL GONNA PREORDER THE DAMN THING.
You haven't posted any pictures of your kitties lately! THE WORLD NEEDS MORE FLANSCATS.
YOU BETTER LISTEN TO ME FLANS
I still remember the first time I saw this video—it came out during my fandom hiatus, so everyone had long since seen it by the time I did. And I was talking to a couple of friends of mine and I was like “JOHN IN A TUX HOT DAMN” and then I was like “wait why the fuck is there a bear” and then I was like “WAIT WHY THE FUCK IS THE BEAR FLANS.” But since Flans totally is a big cuddly teddybear and also “Violin” is entirely about randomness I suppose it isn’t completely nonsensical. (Also JOHN IN A TUX IS STILL A VERY GOOD THING, in case you were wondering.)
YOU GUYS I finished capping the version of the Flood promo that’s on the Gigantic DVD and I discovered that IT IS INCOMPLETE FOR SOME FUCKING REASON. On the version we had previously from the Video Bootlegs (these AMAZING compilations of TV appearances that this guy used to make VHS copies of), the part at the end where they’re listening to Birdhouse is longer. There’s a part where John does this adorable exaggerated fake laugh, and then he’s really slowly snapping his fingers at the end, but in the Gigantic version he’s just stirring his coffee forever (which is also adorable, but yeh).
I have no idea why they would’ve cut it but I WILL TAKE CARE OF THIS, I will make a clip of just that part and get it up on Youtube. At some point. My TMBG to-do list is quite long right now.
