The Wilderness Downtown

Type in the place were you grew up and watch this interactive music video of Arcade Fire take you there. Really good but since it works with Google map, it works with places that have sufficient info, so I didn't manage to get it working very well with locations in Iran but it is still a great expereince.

Arcade Fire is an indie Rock group based in Montreal. It is a family team of husband and wife  Win Butler and Régine Chassagne, along with Will Butler, Richard Reed Parry, Tim Kingsbury, Jeremy Gara, and Sarah Neufeld. Their music and lyrics are brilliant. For this video they have teamed up with creative Artists and produced the interactive video where you run and watch the video in the neighberhood that you say you grew up.

After you watch the video, you can draw or write a post card that goes to your former self!

I saw an Iranian parallel in Arcade Fire lyrics

by ramintork on

Arcade Fire lyrics are very appealing. then i realized that they write about the same sort of things that some of our popular lyricists such as iraj jannati ataie used to write.

Just compare these lyrics to Iraj's "bon bast"
