Some sort of sick web of intrigue and lies you're spinning here on the LiveJournal.
i saw them on sunday. i had never even heard of them a month ago. and i hadn't heard any of their music. i had an awesome time at the show. but didn't erik friedlander and john vanderslice quit the tour after sunday? was it just shearwater, and the goats?
T-Rex wins! The Mountain Goats are awesome. You should buy every album they have or go to http://www.archive.org/
and download some of their concerts.
I haven't been able to see them on this tour. Or the last tour. Or probably the next tour. And it makes me mad, Hulk
-mad! Hulk smash Faberge eggs! Why such pretense over kitsch?
The fact that John drew you as a dinosaur is symbolising your opinions as ANTIQUIDATED and NIGH EXINCT!
...Or that you are really T-rex.
In playing along with my dualism you CONFIRM OPTION ONE.
TIME TO DRINK THE HEMLOCK, SOCRATES.
Did you see Okkervil River open up for the Goats? They are from where I am from and I heart them. Whoa!
So you really ARE a dinosaur. I totally knew it.
That is one burly rat. :-O !!!
I think drawing dinosaurs is just a lot more fun than drawing Ryans.
there's a really good article about The Mountain Goats in the new issue of The New Yorker.
NOW YOU KNOW
AND KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE!
Will you marry me?
p.s. i am a dude.
the answer is PERHAPS!!!!
OH MAN, FISHER GOT SO ANGRY WHEN I GRABBED HIS CROTCH LAST NIGHT...
saw them in montreal and had mind blown. mountain goats is the best thing that ever happened to both storytelling and music.
what was with the no merch thing though? i wanted to give him money but he woulnd't let me!
do they do a no merch thing? I wanted some too but no dice! I just assumed they had sold out (not in the indie sense, of course)!
maybe they had ALREADY sold out before montreal, but there was such a distinct lack of ANYTHING (the shearwater or clearwater guys or whoever had like 5 different albums for sale!) It seemed like maybe it was focussed and intentional.
we should make our own mountain goats clothes.
i got my pins from you and they are now rocking so hard on my purse!
also, the dino who lives on top of my computer...his name is qwantz.
and the mountain goats are one of the best bands ever.
