Too much sad music. Do you listen to anything upbeat that came out since 1990?

Hello Wolf, I vaguely recall a few drunken promises (although I know I've made many in the course of my life) and one of them was that I'd respond to your journal. Please note that I only make promises for my own benefit so I'm not doing this for you. And that $13 that I owe you had better to go to the Daniel Johnston DVD, not crochet supplies.

Also note that the promise to respond to your journal was mostly to myself so don't feel special, there are a lot of journals that I like but never respond to because I'm lazy. Anyway, I really love this here journal because it speaks to my own musical inclinations. Besides Hanson and Interpol, I pretty much love all of the music that you've mentioned.

So where to begin? You've already said more than I have to say about the music. I guess I'll just regale you with a tale so gather 'round.

Sometime in the early-1990s I saw The Mountain Goats play in the basement of a sushi bar. This is not a joke. I saw them and they were really there. John Darnielle sat on a stool with an acoustic guitar and rocked that basement like a crazy man. Seriously. I was pretty young and I really assumed that he was either suffering from undiagnosed ADHD or had neglected to take his ritalin that day. He strummed so hard I wouldn't have been surprised to see him break the entire guitar - I'm sure he broke some strings at least. He was headbanging too. Like as much as Metallica did when I saw them play. Probably more. He was a clean cut, non-descript, casually dressed guy (this was before the weird black hair dye) sitting on a stool, wailing on an acoustic guitar and thrashing his head around in between the verses he sang into his mic. It's a night I'll never forget.

The end.

One last thing: here's my favorite-ever Mountain Goats song. I had 'Sweden' on a cassette tape copy for years until it broke. The tape stretched and broke. Probably because I kept abruptly stopping the tape and rewinding it to this song. Oh hey! You should do a cover of this song and post it here in your already great journal. That would be the best thing I've seen on MB.

Neon Orange Glimmer Song
Like an arrow,
I was only passing through.

Only just got a chance to hear your song now, and my god it was excellent. Your voice is beautiful, you play really well, and the bit at the beginning with your hair was just perfect; really added to the lack of pretension and the gentle humour of the video. Well, not humour, but you know what I mean.

Totally first class.

So instead of downloading the mixtape I just found them all on Spotify. I named the playlist "Ego Tripping's 'heard that from'

I couldn't find the Mountain Goats so perhaps I'm missing out more but I like my new findings with The Olivia Tremor Control.

Well Wolverine, what I noticed is that you clearly like either accoustic or anything associated with Rock Music. I am not against that. I know you like your music. Actually I am impressed that you have a beautiful voice. In fact I am stunned that you have no label. In addition, you like male voices more than female voices. You yourself stated that you find female singers to be snobs. I understand. I love your voice. Also you can play guitar. I like your youtube channel. It is very interesting. I wish you all good luck.
The problem with Franco Pepe Kalle is that he is a unpredictable character. There is surprising info about this man. You think he only likes Franco and Pepe Kalle but when you find out that he hears other artists, you are shock.

Girls are the sexy thing that God created.

Important to notice FPK.
