The "knifes" last "cut" was great! I would love to see them live again and last time I got their tickets at a "slashed" price on Craigs list. Their show was "sharp" though my friend got "shafted" by getting their late and he missed the show. I will take a "stab" that their next shows will be soon. I do think the band needs to "sharpen" their live sound with some more musicians on stage though.

It's just not "funny" when you use "quotation marks" to alert us to your "witticisms."

I think it is done because most people are clueless. Puns are whitty especially when most don't have the mental capacity to "get it" weather it is funny or not.

Ha ha 11:24 must have a "dull" life if he needs to complain on BV about a joke. I thought 11:18 was to the "point". Some of the jokes were even on the "cutting edge"! "Shank" you I will be here all week!

11:28 - is misspelling 'witty' supposed to be witty?

Puns are generally solely appreciated by the person making them.

Saw them at Webster during CMJ in 2006(?). Great show. I can't wait to hear the new material.

That opera The Knife wrote a couple of years ago was mostly unlistenable. I guess I need my art more spoon-fed.

webster hall again would be amazing, but they are too big for that venue now
hope they choose RCMH over T5

Puns are for fruity scarves with a bloated intellectual superiority complex ("waaahhhh, you don't get it! waaaaahhhh!"), which strangely goes along with their low self-esteem, partially brought on by being shoved into lockers every day in high school. At least with all that time stuck in there, you had time to read with the help of the school lights peering through the small slots :)
