Don't lie: you love it!!! You can't get enough of all this Portishead news!!!

Or maybe you're just like me, and there are weird unearthly noises emanating from the basement and you haven't really been able to feel your feet properly for the past two hours b/c it's been non-stop fucking cold outside and you have the most boring job of all time and you're so desperate for entertainment that your big idea is to accumulate various newspaper crossword puzzles and surreptitiously complete them under the counter. (Note: I have never worked through an entire crossword puzzle. Filling in two answers is enough to remind me that they are boring, and for people who are not loudmouthed and entertaining enough on their own. That is why it is a "big idea.")

And, wow! Portishead has new promotional photos, which don't scream "1997, what a year! What ever happened to Cibo Matto?" when you look at them. That's nice!

Because I'm exhausted and my throat hurts, here's some news I copied directly from Pitchfork, just like I copied this picture from them! Thank, dudes.
