I was having a super blah day, about as beige as can be. Sitting here with 2 ear infections, uninspired and coughing up unidentified gelatinous particles...when I came across this video on Stereogum..and my whole attitude, no..day..NO..LIFE changed. I have found the wholly holy grail of awesomeness...and a Christian band called Final Placement from Midland TX holds it in their pure white hands!
"Shine" by Final Placement from sharity world on Vimeo.
Let us drink from the cup of eternal Coke from the Food Court!
Let us find our way, reach the light in our lives after walking around aimlessly in a vacant downtown with a cellphone.
Let us rejoice and have a voice in the Lord's name, purveying his divine message...and double track them..until the pain drives the nuns to thrash themselves with their own rulers.
Let us abstain from within, but release goodwill and good judgement with a well placed guitar solo sounding like drunk angels having a midair collision, then use it as our soundtrack....doubletracked.
Let us pray...Pray for the guitar teacher, the videographer, the sound engineer, the parents who shelled out some serious coin for the Marshall stacks, the audience, the elderly, the sick and the poor.
I know I'm gonna "Shine",now Final Placement! Thank y'all.
