Oh hell yeah. I love Franz Ferdinand. Seeing them play live at OBW sealed it 
for me. Not only are they musically talented they are really lovely people 
and stuff. I don't have much else to say about it except go to 
franzferdinand.org or www.orgster.org for the forum.

This is what I am
I am a man
So come and dance with me, Michael...

Oh the most perfect homoerotic song of the last year :)


believe it, i need it, i feel intoxicated
i love it, i want it, dont make me leave you for it

for a long time i was in love
not only in love
i was obsessed

ive got to make a point these days
to extricate myself
