i write down, and make a lot of this sort of thing while we’re touring. someone encouraged me lately to start showing people more of my stuff. i sent a few of you today in the mail a zine that i made from this sketch book. you’ll get it in a few days if you were one of the quick ones to write me back. i’m going to start try and posting more of my own creations. its difficult sometimes to put it out there into the public.
Hey, I wanted to say that I just found your tumblr which is awesome and thank you for an amazing show in Eugene, OR a while back! My boyfriend and I saw you guys with Death Cab two years ago in San Diego and have been big fans ever since. The new album is superb and once again thanks for a great night in EUG.
thankyou for the nice note. you live in Eugene you say? you have one of the best kept musical secrets living very close to you. richard swift. look him up, and buy it all.
ahh, about the j. jarmusch and s. fuller photo: found it randomly on google. it's from 'Tigrero', have you seen it? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111430/ - well worth seeking out. i much prefer something like the big red one to the deer hunter. different films, i know.
p.s. you should watch the limits of control. it's pretty damn great. i'd like to know what you think of it too. also:
love limits of control. saw it last year with my roomate. we had opposite feelings towards it.
but you can sense show the bond between them in a more segmented or pacey (is that a word?) way. now i'm not saying i don't have the patience for such things, but to me it just felt like 2 different films. i've been meaning to watch it again for a while but it's hard to make time for it!
i hear you. pacey is a word now. i like that word. how about that poster though, damn.
re the deer hunter: is the first hour or so really necessary? does it need to be that long? that's about the only problem i have with it. what'd you think?
wow. thats interesting that you say this, because i really felt like that first hour was really important. thats how we become “friends” with the three guys, and build our own relationship with them. the story is that much more moving in the end because you see how strong the bond of friendship can be, and how war tears peoples lives and relationships apart. after the fact, i realized how i wished more war movies showed that kind of back story. i think it was more moving because of it.
typical question, but i got an answer. i could live without woody allen movies, but i wouldn’t want to. i’m sitting at the dallas airport about to go to reno…. (all the way to reno, remember that song?, i just read the michael stipe interview on american airlines magazine, and he says he wrote all the lyrics to the new record on his iphone, nuts right?), but like i said, i wouldn’t want to live without woody allen movies. do you ever watch movies twice in a row? 2 friends of mine andrew and amanda told me a few days ago that they watched Manhattan twice in a row 1 night, and i liked the sound of that. i always want to read books twice in a row, but never do. movies are easier. i watched Manhattan Murder Mystery twice in a row on the flight i was just on. (as another sidebar, i just read in my “conversations w/ woody allen book that originally these movies were one story, and somewhere along the line they split into 2. weird). Manhattan Murder Mystery isn’t as renowned as Manhattan, but its got Angelica Huston and she is so good in it. she has some of the best lines and steeze in this film. i attached a still of her improving his poker game.
maust!!! Just want to say thanks for the shows in Asheville Nc and Athens Georgia, as well as Chicago and Milwaukee...not sure if you recognized us next to tambourine girl ( my sister)...Sorry, i have no querry, just wanted to say your arts are much appreciated.
oh thankyou!…for coming to both shows. did you see ice cube in the downstairs on the latter of those shows? i did with multiple new friends. so, the infamous tambourine girl is your sister. i recognized you two from time to time. you both make me happy, you have great smiles. you have the long tattoo on your arm with nice scripty writing. what does it say? i tried reading it but i never really could tell what it said. anyhow brother, you and your sisters’ loyalty are greatly appreciated in the cwk camp. thankyou for earning perfect attendance in the midwest chapter of our shows. i attached a picture of the view of what it must look like from your point of view. this is from DC, 930 club soundcheck. be well.
You always post such great songs and gems for all of us so I thought I'd share with you some little nugget that I've been enjoying. Great song, great cover. Hope you like.
holy smokes. love that! we just played a show in santiago where she played the same stage and because of catering issues, and interview issues, and other issues, i wasn’t able to see her set. (and i was bummed, needless to say.) thankyou for posting this one. hits me right
