Live Blogging Week 3-Sea Level Gets (Nearly) Leveled
It's rather miraculous that El-P rocked such a horrifically good pornstache while recording, I'll Sleep When You're Dead. How could he focus on making music with a dead muskrat on his upper-lip? These are the questions that I ask, listening to El-P's I'll Sleep When You're Dead at simply inappropriate volume levels (Sea Level has the booming system.)

I guess there's always Zach Braff. I hear that Coldplay band is pretty bitchin.'
