"when your name breaks on my lips, will you know the sound?"

confession #5:

"speaking of ugly celebrities... i always get told i look like some dude from the used, encino man, or charles manson. not so great."
-josh tillman

i don't really know too much about j. tillman. what i do know, is that according to my itunes i have listened to his song "when i light your darkened door" 34 times over the past 3 days. i tend to be a bit of a sucker for folk singers, but believe me when i say that it's one of the most beautiful songs i've heard in a very long time. for me, j. tillman falls somewhere in between ryan adams and nick drake. his latest release, cancer and delirium, is intimate in a way that makes you want to curl up in a blanket with bottle of whiskey and just watch the rain. or maybe that was just me.

>>in other news, the past two days have been pure heaven for me. watching manchester orchestra and brand new perform two days in a row was almost more than i could bare. overall, they all played great sets and you could tell that the guys all really get along with one another. it seemed like on every other song jesse would play with andy or vice versa. even kevin devine danced around with them. i just wish that brand new would have played some stuff from your favorite weapon. but i was still completely in awe.

>>i don't really care one way or the other, but this could prove to be interesting.

>>lastly, the futurists will be playing a "secret" show tonight at under the couch. i don't really know any details but i would assume that the show will start somewhere around 8.

it's early and i'm rambling... i apologize.
