The Head and the Heart go on tour, confounding the worlds of medicine and science

The Head and the Heart are going on tour, and this disgusts me. No, no, I don’t have anything against them. They seem like a perfectly acceptable group of folky young men and women from Seattle. What disgusts me is the imagery. Think about it, how would you react if you witnessed a head moving autonomously from the influence of a body. Is it floating? Is it rolling on the ground? How is this head getting around?? It’s freaky at best and really gross at worst!!

Don’t even get me started about throwing a heart into the mix. Nobody, outside of maybe scientists and people in medical school, should have any business regarding a head and a heart that doesn’t involve skin, a skeleton, and a number of vital organs. The only people involved with such things are serial killers, and serial killers are jerks. Really, the whole thing is really messing with my head. It’s just… yuck. Still, the less disgusting version of The Head and the Heart, the one with bodies and guitars and stuff, are heading on tour throughout the month of March. Before that, they’re playing a handful of shows in Australia.
