Jeff Mangum plotting to kill Zach Condon, financing ab machine
This one is only sort of a joke. If you go to Aziz is Bored, comedian Aziz Asnari conducts an interview with "Jeff Mangum" about his future. Topics include Aeroplane's influence, his plot to destroy Beirut, a Neutral Milk Hotel "total gym", and the idea to create a VH1 reality show called "The Queen of Carrot Flowers" where Jeff finds a wife Joe Millionaire-style.

Though Neutral Milk Hotel actually isn't returning, there is some consolation. Orange Twin has made the only record from Mangum's side project Major Organ and the Adding Machine finally available on vinyl. Not exactly a brand new concept album, but it's all I got.
