Dinu Lipatti’s Bones - the Mountain Goats
We kept our friends at bay all summer long
Treated the days as though they’d kill us if they could
Wringing out the hours like blood-drenched bed sheets
To keep wintertime at bay
But December showed up anyway
There was no money, it was money that you wanted
I went downtown, sold off most of what I owned
And we raised a tower to broadcast all our dark dreams
From Dinu Lipatti’s bones

This is how the magic happens.
I’VE ALWAYS WONDERED WHAT THIS WOULD LOOK LIKE CLOSE UP
Sufjan Stevens || To Be Alone With You
I’d swim across Lake Michigan, I’d sell my shoes, I’d give my body to be back again in the rest of the room, to be alone with you.

I waited for you
but i never told you where I was
it was you who taught me how
to write these kind of equations
The Mountain Goats, Distant Stations, All Hail West Texas
before i hand it over i’ll push the flap back down and i’ll press—i’m coming to get you—yes i’ll leave everything the way i found it—you’ll hate it when i get there
significance in “wild sage” played each of three times I’ve seen the mountain goats, in the change from “I don’t know what to say” to “I’m not okay”
and somebody asks me “John, are you okay?”
"I’m not okay."
I wish the west texas highway
was a mobius strip
I could ride it out forever
when i feel my heart break
It’s probably been more then five years. I missed it, and I’m super happy I’ve got it back now. I probably shouldn’t have ignored it for so long, because I’m stumbling through some exercises from more than ten years ago (there are dates on them from when I used to be in lessons with weekly assignments). My dad brought me a bunch of my old music, but it’s all from my beginner/intermediate years, so I’m going to look for my advanced music the next time I’m back home, and hopefully, by that time, I’ll have worked my skills back up some. I really want to find my music from when I played in pit orchestras.
Obsessed with the 33 rpm Jolene. OB. SESSED.

In Memory of Satan - the Mountain Goats
John Darnielle is so talented he can even make a Radiohead song sound good.

But you’ll fight and you’ll make it through
You’ll fake it if you have to
And you’ll show up for work with a smile
