Celeb Spottings Near My House pt 1: The Arcade Fire

Posted by Robyn / December 4, 2005

A couple months ago, on my corner, I saw two members of The Arcade Fire. Good ones. Just past another corner, a block and a half away on St. Laurent, is a furniture store. In it there are several pieces of furniture I may or may not have seen on recent episodes of Nip/Tuck.

One of the pieces of furniture is the couch pictured here. It is not like The Arcade Fire. It has been sitting there for months, unlike a certain Montreal band who's been touring for much of the year. Also, that band knows how to get along, knows the meaning of "ensemble." This is the couch for familes who merely tolerate each other. I like how The Arcade Fire can be crazy at times. I think this couch is so sane it doesn't even shop online and goes to tastefully lit stores to buy Ikea furniture that costs 10x as much as Ikea furniture. And I am never going to dance with this couch in the room.

I can barely tolerate my family; perhaps this is the couch for me.
