Still waiting on Cobbler's next good take, it's been a week or two now.

Funeral and YHF definitely stay from that top 4.

Boxer is more consistently enjoyable than Illinois, but Illinois has higher peaks.

I'd probably take Boxer out because Alligator can somewhat replace it, whereas nothing can replace Come On! Feel the Illinoise!, Chicago, and Casimir Pulaski Day.

All four albums are overrated. Illinois > Boxer > YHF > Funeral, but Illinois has a LOT of filler and dead weight, Boxer is very stuffy and not much fun, YHF has a few misses and Funeral just isn't the classic everyone says it is.

Similar thinking here, only I think Fake Empire, Slow Show and Apartment Story are irreplaceable too, so I pick Boxer. But I agree that Illinois has very high peaks. More importantly, I think I would be ok with Sufjan’s catalog sans Illinois more than The National’s sans Boxer.

Cobbler is wrong entirely though. None of these albums are overrated. Funeral is one of the handful of 21st centuries true masterpieces in my view.

Jesus, Travis, why did you ask for this.

It seems I only come to this place when I'm absolutely blitzed now, so imagine my confusion when it turns out the dead forum has actually staggered to a new thread.

I must admit that Wilco does very little for me. I've tried to like Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and it just doesn't connect. Easily the one that I'd drop out of these four.

Funeral and Boxer are both absolute classics.

I'm desperate here, would anyone like to play fantasy football? We're one team short. I can accept that this is the last year we're going to do it here on Interference, but I at least want to KNOW that I'm doing it for the last time. It would suck if last year was it

Some positive personal news to share with you guys:

 
The pandemic has made the job market a cruel place, perhaps especially for those of us in education, but I landed a really terrific job opportunity weeks into the school year. Almost 7 years after graduating from college, I have salaried career job that I actually want.

The job is tough. I'm gonna be teaching English in a dropout recovery program for young adults 16-24 trying to get their life on track. They go to learn a trade, get a full diploma instead of a GED and really make something of themselves. The class sizes are only 10-15 students each, which is amazing, and they run off their own curriculum so I don't have to get bogged down in lesson planning. I get to make a direct impact on the economy instead of teaching kids who only understand the value of education in the abstract. The age range/experience level is exactly what I wanted and because their curriculum is online they won't be forcing us into the classroom immediately. Benefits are really good too and HR was generous enough to move me up the pay scale for experience I couldn't quite fulfill. Basically slid me 5k a year.

And all this in the middle of a pandemic and economic crisis. Thank God for Ashley telling me to stop crying, get off the couch and be active. I pretty much gave up, honestly. No interviews for months and then the stars lined up at the 11th hour after an application I sent out on a whim at 5 AM. You guys know full well how depressed and beleaguered I've been for the past 6 months, how low I got. Things have been really heating up in my neighborhood; someone came through and lit up a carport down the road from my place just a month ago. A close friend of mine got robbed at gunpoint a couple weeks ago like 10 minutes from my place.

Ashley and I have our sights on an apartment in Toluca Lake half a mile from Miley's old house. So yeah, that's a box checked. It's about as cramped as our current one, but the layout is better, the neighborhood is great and we're finally getting central air. Nothing special, but with a child, safety is so important, and that comes at a price in large cities.

If anyone remembers how fucking low I was at the beginning of the pandemic, please know that this is a great and unexpected turnaround. For the longest time I felt I was holding my family back and now I'm getting a real shot. My first day is tomorrow and it's just an orientation day. I'm guessing this week will be pretty slow and then ramp up fully come Monday.

That was just a roundabout way of saying that I can't sign up because I'm too damn busy.

Amazing, LM. Congrats. Really happy to hear. Not sure Toluca Lake is that safe though; I know of at least one actress/songstress who drowned there.

Awesome. And good on the wife for giving you that little push you needed.
Hope you enjoy the job, I'm sure you'll be great at it.
Good luck on the move.

Draft can't be set until we get the 8th team signed up, so once you sign up she can set it for either tonight or tomorrow I'd guess.
