I feel like this today.
Was reading BEAT Magazine today and read an interview with Matt Berninger from The National.
I’m not big on inspirational quotes, but I loved this…
sometimes i forget this comic exists and then i find it again and want to happy-cry
Do you like Godspeed You! Black Emperor?
Their early work was a little apocalyptic for my tastes, but when
Slow Riot For New Zerø Kanada came out in ‘99, I think they really came into their own, eschaterically and thematically. The whole EP has an intense and tenacious sound, and a new sheen of modern romanticism that really gives the songs a big boost. Efrim Menuck’s been compared to Win Butler, but I think Efrim has a much more pragmatic, wise outlook on the world.
In 2000, Godspeed released this: Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is Static, a song so sobering, most people probably don’t listen to the samples. But they should, because it’s not just about the imminent mortality of man as a society and as an individual, but it’s also an important statement about fighting against the industrialized life-cycle of the Western world!
I watched this for the first time a few days ago and it was every bit as much of a mind fuck as I thought it would be and then some.
Andrew Bird. Perfect start to this morning.

Happy to have Justin Vernon from Bon Iver sitting in with The Roots tonight!

repave and trouble will find me
"At first we kept saying: ‘We’re going to beat it. We’re going to beat it.’ Then after awhile we began to realize that we might not beat it. Then toward the end, it became clear that we definitely weren’t going to beat it. That’s when she started telling me that she wanted me to move on and find happiness with somebody else. But I’m not quite there yet. Not long ago a noise woke me up in the middle of the night, and I rolled over to ask if she needed anything."
