I didn't realize that attack to Nancy Kerrigan was at Cobo Arena. My first concert was there (Green Day and Pansy Division).
My girlfriend (and I) have been watching a show called This is Us on Netflix. It's a family drama, told through a multigenerational anachronistic lens. Each episode has a profound story line and almost without fail, a Sufjan song is played that perfectly matches the sentiment on screen. That breathy voice, those chamber chords. He nails it every time.
hey pal. you told me you wanted your studio to be bad-ass so i drew some bad ass details that are apparently too rich for even your blood. :) that entry is still gonna be cool, but less so now. oh well. next project right? right?
here's a teaser for everyone. the view is looking up from the creek toward the studio.
Glad you settled into that one. I was worried it might slip past you, because I know how much you would enjoy it. I think I told you that I saw him live as well. Excellent show. First, the mix was just perfect. Sounded so good. Second, they would do little improvisations here and there, during each song. Made it really fun and intimate. Not sure if you tours the states yet. Be on the look out!

I never really got a sense of quantites for anything throughout the podcast. We had a witness of one gold bar coming from a box that maybe had more bars inside, but that was an assumption. We also have no idea how much guilding was actually being done, but because he was the only one in the country doing it, it could have been a lot.
Now I feel like I'm destroying a good storey by analyzing it too much. What I mean to say is "Thar's gold in them hills."
I finished it last night. Plowed through it actually. I am a binger at heart. I thought it fantastic as well. One thought I had that I didn't hear anyone on the podcast touch on, and maybe I missed it, but to me, there is an obvious connection between the gold bars that he has and the fire guilding that he does. i'm just wondering if his stashed gold in the forest isn't about him being rich, and more about regularly buying and using gold for horology. Thoughts?
looking forward to this album. thought their last was so-so. first half better than the back end. both ga ga ga ga ga and transference were near the top of my playcount from the last ten years though. not many bands can do so much with so little.
i think the first song i ever heard from them was 16 years ago now. crazy that 16 years ago is still in the 2000's.
Ordered! Thanks for the tip. Tim's first record was an excellent concept album. His pop sensibilities are sophisticated. I always thought that, with the right machine behind him, he could have (and may still become) a pop star.
I find that when a band becomes successful, their follow up albums tend to sound somewhat over produced - now that they have access to the best studios and producers. With Bowie's work, since the 00's, I could always hear that cold, shiny quality that a professional studio brings, but they were still warm somehow. If feels to me like a lot of care went into the production of his work, all the way up the sound engineering chain.
