twink: a very fine adventure

dl: TWINK - 3 Bunnies In A Balloon (YSI)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Imagine three bunnies flying in a hot-air balloon. One of them is blue. One of them is orange. One of them is pink. Well, these bunnies are arguing about where they should go for vacation. One of them wants to fly over the ocean to frolic with flying fish and a friendly octopus. One of them wants to fly over candy mountain to catch a glimpse of a rainbow and potentially indulge in some sweets. One of them wants to fly to the moon and get a closer look at the infamous carrot-shaped constellation. Got it? Good.

Now this isn't a riddle where you have to determine which bunny wants to go on which vacation. Not at all! These bunnies just need your help. No matter where they wind up, they will inevitably be happy. However, they need assistance in making a decision.

This is the concept of the artwork for A Very Fine Adventure, the fifth album by Twink (IRL: Mike Langlie). For those who haven't been following ITMS!! since last year, Twink has nothing to do with porn. He is a toy piano collector who creates his music out of...well, what do you think? Toasters? Guess again.

With instruments such as this or this (among many more), Langlie has created over 100 toy-instrument compositions. He's gained the attention of NPR, who called his tunes a "surprising and playfully odd blend of electronica and cartoon music." Also, he's gained my attention. Because these jams are just too adorable to ignore!

A Very Fine Adventure
opens with the tune that appears to have inspired the album's artwork--"3 Bunnies In A Balloon". This isn't the type of tune you can simply place between Lil Wayne and ANORAAK on your party shuffle. Au contraire! This album is a journey that should be listened to in it's entirety (and I'm not just saying that because I want you to buy it, though you won't regret it if you do). Being around children for 4th of July weekend, it made me realize how pathetic the adult imagination is. My 7-year-old cousin conjured up an imaginary boyfriend named David who left her for a 10 year-old he got pregnant. I suppose if I did something like this, I'd get thrown into an institution. That's not my point though! We adults just need to stop being such poopheads and get in touch with our inner child. Can I get an AMEN? Holler if you hear me.
