We'll see if I strike it rich between now and then.
You should charge a visitor's fee for everyone you convinced to come to Seattle and that can pay both these trips.

I might just tell everyone that they can buy me a drink as payment for services rendered instead.

Scumbo - I wasn't sure if I told you yet and I didn't feel like bumping a year-old thread, I have discovered The Decemberists and I absolutely love them. I've got three of their albums: The Hazards Of Love, The Crane Wife, and Castaways and Cutouts, plus some random songs from Her Majesty and Picaresque I downloaded. Revenge from The Hazards of Love gives me chills every time I hear it.

The Decemberists are great. Their songwriting alone makes me happy.

I've got a special affinity for a B-Side from The Crane Wife, Culling Of The Fold. Of course, I always enjoy peppy songs about cold-blooded murder. I'm funny that way.

I honestly think I pretty much have enjoyed everything Colin Meloy has done, be it The Decemberists, Tarkio, or solo. I really like his lyrics and voice. Though he sounds nothing like Morrissey, for some reason they sorta fill the void of The Smiths for me.

I like the Decemberists in relatively small doses. If I hear them, I like them, but I don't feel like listening to a whole album in one sitting.

I think the only CD of theirs I have is The Crane Wife.

The 3 before Crane Wife are my favs. I still enjoy Crane Wife and Hazards, but both of those have a handful of tracks I'm not a huge fan of.

I almost feel like maybe they've tried too hard since moving to a major label to try to prove that they're not making mainstream music. If they'd just relax and do whatever they want to do, the songs would benefit from it.

Has The Decemberists peaked?

I hope not. It's just weird to me that they've almost gone out of their way to make less accessible albums since moving to the majors.

Meloy has been tweeting (god, that sounds so lame) that a new Decemberists album is almost finished. So, there you go. I'm excited.

Picaresque is my favorite record of theirs, btw. And they were an absolute blast live when they came to my college in support of the Crane Wife. Front row, bitches! Meloy tossed a few guitar picks into the crowd. I caught one. This sort of sullen girl and her boyfriend that were standing next to me looked at me when I caught it. She motioned to the guitar pick as if to say "Can I have that?" I let her have it. She didn't say thank you. If she ends up writing the great American rock album with that guitar pick, I'm gonna be pissed.

This is true for any band.

Yeah, I'm not sure Hazards of Love could try harder. I'm positive I wouldn't want it to.

I did like them more before the concepts overtook the music. It's like fucking Desert Island or something.

Sweet Jesus does going a week without internet at home suck balls.

Oh wireless. How I've missed you...

So apparently I missed some band kicking off a leg of their tour or something?

You missed Bono wearing leather.

You missed some new songs, a new intro, a bouncy Bono, and honestly, very little setlist bitching.
