The title of the the album is a reference to Tarot cards which those of us who grew up in the early nineties and were also obsessed with The Invisibles know all to well. The bonus tape is called All Survivors Pack. Which features a song that taught us the name of Billy the Kids mom. A little bit of trivia we can’t wait to break out. We’ve yet to get hold of a tape player to listen to this masterpiece, but thankfully some tech savoy TMG -Head (I’m not sure what we call ourselves), placed it on line already so we can hear whats in our hand without playing it (go Bless the future)! While listening to it with 24-hour cable news running in the background makes us think of Japan, Earthquakes, and the fact that we’ve moved our HQ right in the heart of it. Truthfully this has been on our minds for the last year, but it all comes together cohesively while under the influence of John Darnielle’s soothing, nasal voice!

In Vonnegut’s “Welcome to the Monkey House” (a must read for all Armada members), Ethical Suicide Parlor Hostesses are beautiful young women dressed in purple body stockings that cheerfully help people who are committing suicide with their every need. They work at the Ethical Suicide Parlors located next to the HoJo (Howard Johnson’s Inn) in a future so over populated suicide is considered being patriotic. Do you think that’s what rapper Nicki Minaj was going for on Sunday nights MTV VMAs? Continue reading Nicki Minaj; Ethical Suicide Hostess
The problem truly lies in the fact that both these women seemed to pin their own value and self worth to how men viewed them, weather it as sexual object or not. Two extremes of the same identity crisis faced by 21st Century women; liberated by the sexual revolution and brow beaten by commercial advertising and television which is created largely by men. Even in their rebellion, both women fall victim to the same lie that in order to be happy they must find love in the arms of a man. Although Hephzibah didn’t have sex, she admitted on the Colbert Report that she did everything but. Meaning she still used sex in way to maintain power in the relationships she did have during that year of abstinence. The same as the other one used sex as way to maintain power in hers. The two women both claim their experiences were empowering and liberating. They each believe they were taking control of their lives. Which is to say they felt that before they had no control and had sex simply as way of giving in to their respective partners, and not as a way of achieving pleasure for themselves? It seems dishonest to me. Thought they went at it in two separate ways they both used sex and non-sex as a way to get what they wanted-which was affection.

In a few months the world as we know it will change forever (for those that can afford it), just in time for Christmas! Billy Gates and his brain trust have developed a revolutionary new addition to there psycho-addictive game console. It is called Project Natal and it is as sinister as it’s name sounds. They are planning to release a device that will not only scan you and what ever you desire into a game, but will also be sentient enough to recognize your face (even in a room full of people), it will talk to you as if it is alive, and one day it will take over your home and kill you. Continue reading We are living in a pre-Natal world!
