    New video takes place on YOUR street-

    Google has teamed up with The Arcade Fire and video director Chris Milk to make a crazy interactive video for their song We Used To Wait, set… on the street you grew up on.

    On the Google / nerd side, it’s meant to show off the capabilities of HTML5, branded as an "experiment" for the Google Chrome browser, but it worked just fine for me in the HTML5 compliant Safari browser as well.

    Here’s how it works: You head over to thewildernessdowntown.com, and plug in the address of the house you grew up in. The video gathers up a whole bunch of crazy aerial and street-level panoramas of your street from Google’s satellite spy cam gizmos, and HTML5 video is constructed on the fly, dynamically layering in elements of the music video over your intimately familiar scenery.

    You can even leave a handwritten postcard for your past self using a little HTML5 drawing tool.

    After the video you can submit that postcard to be shared with other fans who can then respond to it, and it might possibly used in the band’s onstage presentations.

  2. I saw Arcade Fire live in Portland a few weeks ago. They're pretty impeccable live...
  3. Some band. This segue is as good as most Streets segues.

  4. They're an amazing band, yup. Still can't get to ADORE them, dunno exactly why.

  5. I'd say try harder but trying isn't required. Just go watch some live stuff I suppose.
  6. I hereby declare this band as the best around and this album the best of the decade.
  7. I agree with the above statement. Words really any describe these guys. Would LOVE to see them live.
  8. I wouldn't go that far. They're excellent though, superb songs. But as I said 3 months ago...

  9. Retitled the thread by way.
  10. Try harder Sergio. Give suburbs one more run through. It's sublime.
  11. Will do. Nothing comes close to Funeral in my opinion, but I will give The Suburbs *yet another* listen later today.
