The National To Provide Song For Portal 2

The National's Fake Empire is one of my favourite songs in years. Which means I come to the news that the glum band has recorded an original song for Portal 2 with a happy heart. There's not really any more to the story than that at this stage. There's a press release where Valve and the band's management both say that it's a good thing. And then there's an aching gap of silence where a clip of the song could have appeared.

There is, however, one nice detail in there. The press release recommends that we press visit thinkwithportals.com for more details. But doesn't link there. No, it links to the confusingly broken, presumably intended in-office insult, chet'smom.com. Complete with the %27 ascii code for the apostrophe. There, I bet they're glad we're mentioning that.
