What can I say. I'm piss ass drunk and I can't help but post this fucking incredible little song. It's nothing that will win a Grammy but it is a fucking beautiful little song in my opinion. It's actually on my mix CD that I sent out, so I am giving myself away, but not really because anyone that receives a CD with a song by Conor Oberst will already automatically know its from me so shit.
You know what Switchy, I really do admire your passion and dedication to Mr. Oberst. It takes a lot to stand by something you love, knowing full well your going to (and always do) catch shit for it. I couldn't imagine someone saying WKD every time I posted something I love, even if it is in jest. I'm sure this goes without saying, but keep on listening to what you love regardless of what others think.
I just youtubed some of his songs, having never really listened I'll say this: I didn't like everything I heard, but I can see/hear why you like him so much. Having never seen him myself I cannot speak to the drunk stage show, but all the live videos I saw he seemed to put on a decent show. I also really liked the first song you posted here.
Rust- Thanks man, that was a great message to read.
Geno- What can I say, I choose music that speaks to me and gets me through the day. I don't fit the profile of a "typical" Bright Eyes fan, whatever the hell that is, but I can't live my life trying to put myself into a box.
