Death Cab for Cutie – Grapevine Fires

And the firemen worked in double shifts
With prayers for rain on their lips
And they knew it was only a matter of time.

Lesson learned: even when you’ve lost everything a man can lose, you still got something. Oh, and also: don’t throw your lit cigarette in the wild.

    Hello, I’m samueltheslim, a videoblogger from Spain and i love your blog. I visit it everytime that there are new stuff.

    And i’m wondering, why did you stay out for so long?

    Good question. I guess I just needed that. For some time I felt that this blog was growing more impersonal, with me being more an aggregator than a conscious harvester.
    I took the time to sort that feeling out. And to study PHP for my new job.

    I know I’m coming in late, but this music video is really great. I was surprised at how closely the lyrics and images matched, and also how the animation shifted subtly between seeming very rudimentary and very complex and smooth. The mixture of the two was very nice.
