Andrew Bird Takes Over The World

I hate to give in to lame cultural nomenclature, but I think that I may be developing a serious man crush on Andrew Bird. Armchair Apocrypha, his incredible new album, comes out this Tuesday, March 20th. If you don't buy it, then you officially love terrorists. Why do you hate freedom, and/or incredible music, you commie terrorist lover? Can't you see that your purchase of Mr. Bird's masterfully layered work of orchestral-pop will help catch Osama and bring together Sunni and Shi‘ite Muslims, all under the banner of peace, love and understanding? Don't you want those things to happen, or are you a sadistic sicko who likes to see the world in constant peril? I think the answer is obvious.

To whet your appetites for all things Bird related, I bring you links to the following:
