...now you may properly get crunk.

So. While "ginormous" is busy getting recognition as the "big deal of a word" to be added to the upcoming edition of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary (eleventh edition, out this fall), it also appears that "smackdown" and "crunk" have reserved spots as well. Hooray for the state of American English, indeed.

On an uplifting note, the new Caribou album is available for stream on the Merge Records website and is purely lovely, uberdrums still intact. Caribou will be touring this fall, the schedule for which you can find here; the band puts on a brilliant show with deafening, dueling drum kits - simply one of the best live shows around. New album Andorra will be out in the US on August 21, and in Europe on August 20 (European bastards always get the advantage).
