I haven't been able to stop thinking about this Instagram Story since I saw it two days ago. 

Thank the lorde I recently decided to split my attention between Snapchat and Instagram Stories otherwise I would have missed out on this VERY interesting hint of awesome things to come:

Do you guys remember almost a year ago TO THE DAY when the heavens briefly parted and sent down a Fischerspooner track in the form of a NICOPANDA video with some really stellar choreography because I sure as hell do!

Definitely haven't played this video an embarrassing number of times since it came out. That would be crazy. 😳

So yeah that video dropped

and

then

nothing

happened. :( 

Well actually that's not true.

If you're just catching up like admittedly I am, a little bit of news started to leak out near the end of last year.

To bring you up to speed, these are the things that we know:

Are we on the same page yet? Do you understand why I legit had trouble going to sleep the other night after I saw this? It was already enough of a challenge to prepare myself for having Fischerspooner back, but then you factor in BOOTS and newcomers (to my ears) Crush Club in the mix with them, knowing all the while that Michael Stipe has been carefully keeping watch over this project.... 

the future is actually starting to look bright, you guys. 

Are you excited? 

I'm so excited! 

(btw you need to read the entire NICOPANDA interview with Casey Spooner. Bless that man)

[Watch] Michael Stipe Visits Jimmy Fallon

Now that R.E.M. have officially called it a day there's not a lot you can do in terms of playing late night slots performing tracks from Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage (1982-2011). However, last night Michael Stipe visited Jimmy Fallon to sit down for a chat about the band and it's history. After that he stuck around to play a game of Password with J-Fal. Martin Short and the living felt legends that are Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. How can you resist hitting play on the videos? Up top is the interview and after the jump comes the Muppets infused fun. Thanks to The Audio Perv for the video love.

Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage: 1982-2011 is out now.
