Re: TLW contribute for Led Zeppelin tribute.

i got my copy yesterday and after hearing the song rushed to the board to talk about it, only to find the website server was down due to a tech problem. Bad timing, this song is so sweet! I too jumped to TLW straight away. Now, don't necessarily go thinking Led Zep is not your thing, I'm by no means...

Re: Article by John in the Seattle Weekly Reverb Residency

And, honestly, it's not fair to say that it's the artist's responsibility to set, and be clear about, all the social limits he or she would like honored at any given moment. I feel I should address this, since I was the one who raised that point. I can see that the way I phrased it may have sounded...

Re: Article by John in the Seattle Weekly Reverb Residency

I don't mind the label superfan, really. I do spend a fairly disproportionate amount of time on TLW, although at least I do something that I can put on my resume (and it has helped get me jobs, even!). That being said, I can see that as a superfan, I can sometimes be unfairly demanding. How many tim...

Superfans: they love you, then it gets complicated

As a superfan I cannot help but respond to this week's column. My husband read it and said 'my god, he makes it sound like it's really terrible to have fans'. I have to say that I recognized a lot in John's observations. I can easily point out numerous occasions in my career as big fan of bands wher...

wow, how come Utrecht and Vienna aren't twinned then? Then I could get subsidized to come visit, we'd call it cultural internet exchange.

Re: John to Appear at The Crocodile 11/5/2010

21? I'm all for international dialog, but isn't that a bit over the top?
Utrecht has 2, which seems more than enough: one cute European one (Brno, Czechia) and one exotic Latin-American one (Léon, Nicaragua).

Re: John to Play Three Shows This Summer at The Triple Door

Poor squiddie! I never for one moment dreamt that I was going to be able to attend this show, but I too want reports. I did get to hear and see a mini-opera yesterday, staged by a number of colleagues for the farewell of my manager. That was well surprising, I wonder if TLW's show could have topped ...

Re: John to Appear with John Hodgman 8/20/2010

I was wondering what it was that bugged me, but it is what Jason said.
I rather like the verses played like this, but I miss the whole band bursting in on the chorus.

This discussion reminds me of first hearing the album version, after hearing the old 'KEXP' version a lot. It blew me away!

Re: New Long Winters Single Available 9/21/2010

got my copy today! It looks absolutely gorgeous. Alas the disc isn't completely clean, resulting in much ticking and a stuck record about one minute in; can't clear the obstruction without force. Has anyone else actually played their disc? There is of course the digital download, but there's somethi...

Re: Christians are funny (not)!

Thank you for posting this, I've not laughed this hard in a while. There are so many good quotable parts, that I really suggest you read the article for yourself. The amount of parentheses to emphasize all that's vile and evil is quite endearing. After the perfectly chilling conclusion (the image of...

Re: New Article by John in The Seattle Weekly

Short? it's long enough that the last 3 lines had to go to a second page.
The article has an interesting angle. I have to say it took me a quite a long time allowing my 'good' and 'bad' taste to become just 'my' taste.

And yeah, I too cannot get over that voice.
