  • It would have to be ‘Slow Hands’ because that was the song that made me fall in love with their music.

  • Tim B.

    definitely Evil! (video is awesome as well)

  • Ken

    I was just listening to ‘Next Exit’, my fave!

  • My favorite one is “c’mere”

    “It should be me. Oh, it should be me.” :p

  • Tim B.

    Definitely ‘Evil’, love the video as well!

  • William Alexander

    Lights.

  • JF

    Definitely “Obstacle 1” <3

  • HANDS AWAY!

  • Scale

  • NYC

  • Holly

    THE NEW!

  • Dan O’Leary

    “Stella was a diver and she was always down”: dark but somehow uplifting at the same time.

  • Really digging “lights” of the new album!

  • Obstacle 1

  • Love the swinging (but sentimental) moods of “Evil” off the album Antics. Great song!

  • Cesar Banares

    Stella Was a Diver and She Was Always Down

  • Stephen

    Either The Heinrich Maneuver or the new Lights song, something eerie about that ritual in the music video that makes it interesting.

  • Becky

    Evil!

  • NYC!

  • Roger

    Evil is awesome. Interpol is awesome as is vancouver

  • Miakel

    “C’Mere”

  • Vince Kueter

    “The Length of Love” – It has a urgency that drives forward and pulls you along with it, the lyrics are intriguing and it swings and rocks at the same time.

  • EVIL !! E-V-I-L , in case you wondered…EVIL

  • Nigel

    C’mere

  • Jordan

    NYC! because it’s up to me now; and New York cares.

  • Carly

    PDA.
    something about 200 couches always creates thought-provoking images.

  • Sarah

    Untitled, but The Lighthouse is a close second. I walked down the isle to The Lighthouse.

  • Che

    The New.

  • Brad

    Untitled!

  • “Leif Erickson”

    beautiful.

  • Jen

    Lights is one of my favourites!

  • Jon

    Leif Erikson!

  • Jamie Mak

    Obstacle 2

  • Emily

    Leif Erikson

  • Sara

    NARC!

  • Erica Sandberg

    Antics is such a great album that several tracks have been faves over time, but recently it’s been Narc.

  • Maxwell M. Addington

    The bass and percussion on “Take You On a Cruise” (Antics) evoke the feeling of turbulent seas, then drift away, leaving a moment of silence before thrashing back in — like the calm before the storm. The distant guitars serve to conjure up images of vast, open waters.

    In all, it’s a beautiful song that shows Interpol’s craft at its finest.

  • Erica Sandberg

    Narc

  • Ed

    “No I In Threesome” which is an awesome title for a song haha.

  • Jay

    Obstacle 1 ! Brian Anderson in Yeah Right……yessssssss

  • Chasby

    Obstacle 1 simply due to how amazing it went with Brian Anderson’s part in Yeah Right!
    (my brother would be hyyped on these tickets!)

  • maria

    Next Exit

  • Laurel B

    At this very moment, “The Heinrich Maneuver”. They’re swaying hearts and belting out to us wicked west coast folks. Yeow!

    Evil

  • derrick

  • i’ve been a huge fan of interpol for years. i was literally just trying to plan a flight to go see them in january. i would be so thrilled to go!

  • fly tickets Buenos Aires – Vancouver includes?

  • jesse

    memory serves

  • hunter

    narc

  • My favorite Interpol song would have to be “Evil”, because the bassline is so great and I was introduced to them through this song. However I love almost all their songs and “No I in Threesome” was a close runner up too!

  • John Dumalig

    Say Hello To The Angels – I’ve only heard them from skate videos and a good friend of mine showed me this song. It blew my mind! She is now my best friend and pretend wife. Listened to it on repeat for like weeks. “Baby Baby You’re Really The Best”

  • ARIAN M.

    Interpol is of the best bands ever to nurish my ever hungry ears. My favourite is the Pioneer to the falls and close second would be The Lighthouse

  • Sam Hamer

    ‘HANDS AWAY’

  • Alex Grewal

    1.Say Hello to the Angels
    2. Slow Hands

    “Evil”

Pokémon Go: Complete Pokédex Silhouette Reference Chart

Download: The Complete Pokédex Character Reference Chart

 

Pokémon Go has taking over my free time the past couple weeks, and it’s weird because I never watched the show and don’t play games on my phone. Is anyone else in the same boat?

I read about the guy who apparently found all the available Pokémon but I couldn’t find an image of all the revealed characters. I was also surprised that it was so difficult to dig up an entire chart of all the Pokémon silhouettes to be able to know whether something close to you is worth searching for. Any longtime fans of Pokémon will already be able to recognize the silhouettes but I’m not so a chart like this is kinda crucial! Consider this a tool for anyone new to show or the game.

The image above is essentially what it looks like to complete your entire Pokédex! This image above is the entire chart with all the characters revealed and below is the full chart as silhouettes (with and without titles). Full credit goes to Reddit user Jadael for posting the images here.

 

Essential Pokémon Go resources:

The Silph Road – this subreddit aims to be the largest online community of Pokémon Go users offering lots of findings.

Lvl 22 Player Giving Small Tips of Advice – this post on Reddit really answers every question you will have about the game and specific advice things like quickly levelling up.

Pokémon Go IV (Individual Values) Calculator – if you want to take the game to the nerdiest level possible, use the Google Doc linked here to accurately calculate if you should continue powering up your Pokémon or transfer it and move on.

 

Maybe I’m a huge nerd for liking this game but I can’t remember the last time I walked around my city and struck up as many conversations (albeit very nerdy conversations) with so many complete strangers of all ages. So far I’ve found 67 Pokémon and I’m level 17. Any other Booooooom readers playing?
