The Game of Monogamy
Author: Eric Greenwood
Tim Kasher told Spinner that his new single "Cold Love" (off his debut solo record The Game of Monogamy) is about "how routine sex can become in relationships." The video takes this germ to farcical comedic levels, as Kasher and his girlfriend punk each other in increasingly gross ways. I spent the entire video trying to figure out who plays his girlfriend because she looked so familiar. I failed, so I turned to Google. It's Molly Parker, whom you may remember from Deadwood or the much-too-short-lived Swingtown. I discovered her connection to Kasher at IMDb. Parker is starring in the film adaptation of Kasher's first screenplay entitled Help Wanted Nights (which is also the title of the fourth record by Kasher's side-show away from Cursive, The Good Life).
