The Ghost Inside

I copped that Broken Bells joint last night, and gave it some run during my PM gaming session. I beat Civ on King and have now stepped up to Emperor. It's amazing how often I find myself uttering something really un-PC while playing that game. After getting nuked, like, five times by Wu Zeitan, I yelled out, "These Chinese motherfuckers ain't playing around!" Yeesh. Still, I like that a lot better then playing as Napoleon and colonizing Africa. I've done that, too.


Anyway, the Broken Bells joint went down pretty smooth. This is probably the catchiest number on the record. An assist from Christina Hendrix never hurts...
