Is Tortoise still around? Stereolab and Trans Am are the only 'post-rock' Chicago centered bands I can think of.
ECB: Forget veal, let us hatch a new era of succulent, milk-fed baby hippo goodness.
I had no idea how you were going to top Jake's cuteness... But you did. Baby hippo? OMG.
The cutest part is that they're friends! The baby hippo lost his mama in the big tsunami a couple years back, and when they took him to a wildlife preserve he adopted the old cranky tortoise (or was it the other way around?).
Their names are Owen (hippo) and Mzee (giant aldabra tortoise). There are plenty more opportunities for heart-breaking anthropomorphization where this came from in a couple of children's books that have been written about them. Just wait until you see the picture of them snuggling up for the night...
@1 - It is unclear whether either of them enjoys listening to the band Tortoise. Chances are they'd rather listen to a band called 'Leafy Greens', but I don't know if they officially released any records.
