He’s written not one but two songs about heads exploding/being on fire. This is really exciting to me personally because I have the long-held belief that spontaneous combustion would be, hands down, the most awesome way to die.
Cute! Although it’s rather silly for them to be so happy when one of them is gonna DIE.

I love this performance so much. All the songs are rockin’ as fuck, and everything is always better with horns. “No One Knows My Plan” is particularly fantastic.
Obligatory John gushing: SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH ADORABLENESS in here. I think the best part has to be the dorky little dance during plan, but I also completely adore the part where he’s looking up at the ceiling while explaining how they’re NOT WEIRD AT ALL OK (yeh John you just keep telling yourself that) and the hopping around during “The Guitar.” Also that is some QUALITY HAIR.
