Can't buy a thrill

The medicalization of my vocabulary proceeds apace; I palpated my first thrill last week. This sounds more exciting than the reality: a 3/6 heart murmur jumps to 4/6 if you can feel its vibration on the chest wall.

Dave Barry would note that there's several good potential band names embedded in the paragraph above, and he'd be right. "Big Sur" -- the new single from the Thrills -- has been stuck in my head. This song sounds like Ivy, more lounge-ish and retro compared to the earnest, jangle-pop "One Horse Town" from last winter.

"One Horse Town," it must be noted, features no murmurs, rubs, or gallops.

UPDATE: Medpundit points out these sites, which will come in handy in due course.
