Tonight Mena informed me that Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand has been dating Eleanor Friedberger for, like, 2 years (or some long amount of time). And not only that, but that "Eleanor Put Your Boots On" (my favorite song off their new album) is about one Eleanor Friedberger.  Neither of which fact I knew previously, incidentally.
And then, then, she also told me that there's a free stream  of Rehearsing my Choir (the FF new album due October 25) on Amazon. Which I also didn't know about—I only have a couple of tracks on MP3, sort of intentionally, in that I like holding out until I can listen to the actual album—and which I'm now listening to.
 And I thought that the guy on the FF message board hoping that Eleanor would come out on stage when Franz Ferdinand played "Eleanor Put Your Boots On" was just a sad fanboy.
No—I'm the sad fanboy.
 If you're on a Mac, and Windows Media Player doesn't work for the stream (it didn't for me), try VLC.
