The National thread (rolling)

i like the national really, but the last couple of albums have been trash. That is my TED talk, bye


welcome to the boards!

Nice to get such a warm welcome. Thank you.


If anyone gets a presale link for the Europe shows, if you could clue in your ol pal thesewoodenideas here so he can do the Dublin gig that’d be great.

…pre-sale link hasn’t turned up. If anyone isn’t going to the UK shows and has a link they’re not gonna use, it’d be greatly appreciated.

Got Dublin tickets!

Presale had individualised passwords so I guess it’s good their trying to beat the touts.


Got some standing tickets for Glasgow, delighted


Got ally pally tickets. I spent an hour on ticketmaster like a nugget waiting for tickets to go on sale before realising I needed to use the link in the email. Still, got there in the end.


Up to Boxer now in my relistening. Might be well over half a decade since I listened to this. Makes me miss my drum kit, I would butcher Brainy over and over just cuz it was so fun to play.

A message from The National:

Forgot tickets were on general sale today but I managed to get a standing ticket for Alexandra Palace, phew.
Third time seeing them. Dublin during the Trouble Will Find Me Tour, Amsterdam during Sleep Well Beast, now London for Frankenstein.

Write a song about eating a nice Sunday dinner in the style of the National

Verse 1: Gathering 'round the table,
family all in tow
Roast beef and gravy,
potatoes all aglow Grandma’s recipe,
passed down through the years
A tradition we hold dear

Chorus: It’s a Sunday dinner, a time for us to share
A meal made with love, a feast beyond compare
The conversation flows, laughter fills the air
It’s a Sunday dinner, a time for us to be there

Verse 2: Candles flickering,
wine glasses all raised high
A toast to the ones we love, as the sun starts to die
A moment of peace, in this hectic life
A chance to slow down, and ease our mind


Bridge: The food is delicious, but the company’s the best We come together, to put our worries to rest


Outro: As the plates are cleared,
and the night draws to a close
We’ll remember this moment, with a smile on our faces.
A Sunday dinner, a tradition we’ll always hold dear.


They pretty much already did this.


Epic fail on the AIs part - no mention of clothing or the word ‘shirt’.
