Oh, and oh my: R.E.M. always used to be in the business of setting truth to an awesome soundtrack, but they and I parted waves in a dorm room back in 1993; very little of what they've put out in the past (gulp) fifteen years has done much to thrill even the rock 'n roll part of my soul (which, to be sure, is a pretty big part of my soul). But dude, I think (and yes, I know I'm not the first person to make it to this realization) they might be back.
