Grapevine Fires

Not a huge Death Cab fan (though I'm partial to the somber strains of "Transatlanticism"), but check out this new video, inspired by lead singer Ben Gibbard's experience with the California wildfires of 2007 (remember San Diego?).

Fire can be a powerful, awe-inspiring force, but it can also prove to be deadly.

The illustrations are especially intriguing.

Bought some wine and some paper cups,
Near your daughter's school and we picked her up.
Drove to the cemetery on a hill, on a hill.

Watched the bullets paint the sky grey.
She laughed and danced through the field of graves.
There I knew we'd be alright.

Everything will be alright...
Will be alright...
Will be alright...
Will be alright.
