Nuclear Bubble Wrap at The Rutledge, 5/18/13.
I’m so glad and fortunate to be a human. I’m able to enjoy consciousness, self awareness, happiness, sadness, life ambitions, art, music, love, sex, all these things… and I’m completely self aware about it. But only cause I’m a human being.
What if I was born as a hippopotamus instead? Or a bee? Or a fucking blobfish?
And if I was, I wouldn’t even be aware of it because my entire reality would be that of being that animal. They don’t think about it. I’m so glad I’m a human.
But now think about the amount of life out there in the universe that could potentially be more intelligent than us. So much more intelligent that we can’t even comprehend it. Like, they bring fucking Stephen Hawking before their council and they’re like “this one is slightly smarter than the rest of them because he can do astrophysics in his head.”
How is consciousness even a thing?
Not final mix of a song from the next album! This one’s about dinosaurs in love during the extinction period when the meteor strikes! I don’t know what it is about love in the apocalypse, but I tend to write about it a lot…
Andrew Kepple’s new Garfield collaboration animation, featuring a brand new Nuclear Bubble Wrap song is out now! We were asked to write a song about Garfield for the video, and we delivered.

Someday I’d like to write a book about death.
