A dear friend back in Rochester passed this along with a note saying “it’ll help you remember home”. Having recently shipped off from the states to start a new, pithier life in the UK chock full of british slang and mannerisms, this sort of message makes its way through the wire pretty frequently. It’s the care-package stage, really, loved ones trying to ease the transition but also make sure my mental snapshots of “home” don’t fade.
I didn’t get around to checking out what my friend sent. It’s the new Arcade Fire HTML5 video, and by god, it’s brilliant. If you’re even slightly homesick, or even just want a tinge of nostalgia to go with your cup of coffee and biscuits, do check it out. You’ll be glad you did.
