"The Long Winters’ frontman/songwriter John Roderick is a smartass. Meaning he is both intelligent and an ass. But Roderick only acts like an ass because of his superhuman modesty. He wants you to believe he’s just one of the guys, when in fact he’s infinitely smarter than “the guys” and also happens to be one of the best lyricists in music today."

yea, i don't know how i feel about that article. granted i don't dig deep in lyrics, i kind of take them at face value. there have been a couple songs that i've thought "what the F is he talking about?!!??!" but for the most part i have and have had enough termoil in my life to relate them how i need them.
