Revelations, Like in the Movies

On the journey from Aberdeen to Glasgow this afternoon, we of the Blood Arm posse held a screening of the excellent Robert Rodriguez film From Dusk Till Dawn. In addition to teaching us that teenagers grow up a lot faster when abducted by murderers and forced into Mexican drinking establishments filled with blood-thirsty vampires (which, coincidentally, is how the Blood Arm came to be), the film also cast a keen light on George Clooney. To be precise: He talks exactly like Keith Murray, lead vocalist and guitar-man of We Are Scientists. And they look somewhat similar to boot.

Observe. Here’s George:

Now here’s Keith:

It’s uncanny, really.

Also Uncanny, the fun we had in Leeds, Newcastle, and Aberdeen. Some Highlights:

-The University Refectory, where our show took place, hosted some other legendary performances as well.

-We managed to get our dear friend Robert Willey kissed by a real-live girl.

-Dyan found me the best scarf ever on the ground in Newcastle. (Not the best ever: the neck lice that hitched a ride on the scarf.)

-The Aberdeen Music Hall is so beautiful we cried.

That’s all for now.

I love you,

Ben Lee Handler

Gosh, I just can't believe that you won't be playing Cologne in Germany!

Can't you please play some...let's say...secret gig or so?

I've been looking forward to seeing you for months and now I probably won't see you at depressing...

Hope to see you somewhere during the next months,

best wishes from around Cologne!
