I used to be carried in the arms of cheerleaders

Here's a three-part mini-documentary on The National, complete with band drama and kinda silly commentary. In hind sight, I was wrong when I thought Alligator was really good. It was fucking awesome - hands down one of the best albums of last year. Like all of the best albums, it only gets better with each listen. This thing is full of one-liners that say more than most full songs.

For those that have never heard the band:

The National- Secret Meeting from Alligator

The National- All The Wine from Alligator

The National- Abel from Alligator

Oh "Abel," how hard dost thou rock?
