The West Wing

No one ever told me to watch The West Wing, not one of the people I have met in the 10 years since it first broadcast suggested I should check it out, I can't believe it, I honestly can't. Such a tragedy may not have befallen you, you may already know of it's qualities , but if you aren't I am telling you now. WATCH THE FUCKING WEST WING.

I'm not going to go on about why you should watch, adjectives seem trivial, if you like life, watch it. The only thing I will say to qualify my comments is - It's better than The Wire.

I went there, deal with it.

One Of My Favourite Scenes Ever

From Stranger Than Fiction. Could be the start of a whole new blog feature! I would also quite like to start a 'Girls With Boys Haircuts' (e.g) section, and properly start doing thewirespot.blogspot.com

In The Studio: Yeasayer

Yeasayer seem like nice guys, part 2.

Ps. when you are telling your little friends how good the new Yeasayer is don't forget to mention I discovered them.

Maeve Higgins

I can't believe I'd never heard of Maeve Higgins until the weekend, I feel bad. She's one of the funniest comedians I've seen in years. This clip is from her Irish TV show Fancy Vittles that aired last year, there are more good clips on youtube.

New Lo-Fi Fnk

A new Lo Fi Fnk song? I thought the day would never come. They are one of the best electro bands in recent years for those at the back. It would be hard for a song to meet the expectations we have but it is pretty lovely, you be the judge.

Beach House Daytrotter Session

Beach House have recorded a Daytrotter session, what a treat. The new album Teen Dream appeared on Spotify today also, you don't need me to tell how startlingly beautiful it is do you.
