we’ve apparently come full circle now that seventeen year old celebrities are quoting bright eyes songs from TWELVE YEARS AGO in their twitter profiles, like, this human was not even a fully sentient creature at the time this album came out, an album that i BIKED TO SOUND EXCHANGE TO BUY THE CD OF THE DAY IT CAME OUT, i PAID WITH MY BABYSITTING MONEY
it’s also worth noting that, at the time this album came out, my AIM profile description was a bright eyes lyric from “one foot,” which was and the world’s got me dizzy again you’d think after 22 years I’d be used to the spin, except i changed “22” to “seventeen”
it was size 10 very small dark purple verdana, it was very important that this was my default AIM font
ps WHO REMEMBERS THE SADDLE CREEK MESSAGE BOARDS

CONOR OBERST TURNS 34 ON SATURDAY.

no i’m not done:
it’s been twelve years since Conor Oberst was 22.
Fevers & Mirrors came out almost 14 years ago.
Spend an Evening with Saddle Creek came out 9 years ago and my boyfriend gave me the DVD for my birthday or something.
none of these things are significant actually but i’m really confused by all of it.
