This afternoon my kids insisted on Death Cab For Cutie’s “Plans” and since Ralph was late coming home and I was out of ideas we fired it up. I used to love that album. I’ve heard it so many goddamn times now. I’m sure my children know every lyrical nuance and drumbeat to “Soul Meets Body” better than any pop scenester out there. So during the song “Marching Bands of Manhatten” after the line, “Sorrow drips into your heart through a pinhole” Sophie pipes up: “Mama, Sauron’s the big eye in Lord of the Rings!”
Sauron drips into your heart through a pinhole. SO TRUE. I must post this profound thought to http://lembasbread.livejournal.com/.
