It is illegal to buy an anatomically correct inflatable doll in Texas, as I am sure you have already discovered.

Fraternity scavenger hunt in college.

They are legal in Oklahoma. Transporting them across state lines I'm not so sure about.

Friggin' Texas.

At least it's legal to shoot a wild hog with an assault rifle from a helicopter here.

But I actually really enjoyed it. Hardly a bum note and it wasn't too much of a drag, despite having a run time of approximately 17 hours. My favourite track was probably Chicago, and others I really liked included UFO Sighting, John Wayne, Jacksonville, Casimir Pulaski Day, Metropolis, Predatory Wasp and the last track, Out of Egypt, was a real nice instrumental.

Definitely good stuff
Glad you liked it. Michigan is a very good complement, and I am also fond of Seven Swans. I think you should check these two out before moving on to the electro-experimental-drug-induced fase of Age of Adz and All Delighted People.

His vocals veered near to Ben Gibbard at times but unlike Postal Service and Plans it didn't detract from the overall experience. I will likely check those out, a girl I am in love with says Seven Swans is her fav, so that will probably be next

It was quite interesting reading through this thread. Some verrrry differing opinions on Age of Adz and the live show. I did actually download (illegally, mofo, fuck u) Age of Adz at the time and recall not getting through it. Strange, as given my tastes you'd think that would be a starting point for me.

Hopefully this new album is good too. The new song didn't do much for me, though.

This is my favorite of his. It is a very personal record for me; ties me directly to a specific time and place each time I hear it.

The new album is wonderful. I put several days between my first and second listen and when I came back to it, I remembered the melody of nearly every track. The writing is awesome; Drawn to the Blood in particular is a wealth of great chord changes.

Yeah, he has a wonderful ear for good chord changes. Michigan has a ton of those, if my memory is correct.

Really looking forward to this. The two songs are great, right up my alley.

Isn't that a John Legend song?

Same title, different song. This one has a line about masturbation which is always good...

"Beauty blue eyes, my order of fries" is even more bizarre than the masturbation line.

Then Sudgefan proceeds to chase the dragon in the very next song. I'm not sure he knows what that euphemism means, unless he's gotten into some shit lately.

But mostly the lyrics are about trees, old people and death.
