I’m glad you’ve started to cover Isbell. It’s become clear over the last few years that dude’s operating on another level.

I love CASSADAGA and I think “Lime Tree” is a perfect song. It’s a gorgeous and spare, with impeccably-arranged strings; mostly, though, Oberst’s voice makes it great. He sounds more present than ever, and it gives me chills.

“Over-complex”? Football, which we can agree is a “real sport,” would take an entire miniseries to explain. That only privileged college kids can play it– if that’s true– doesn’t make it a terrible game (terrible name, though, to be sure), and it certainly doesn’t make sense for you to be upset about its existence. I can see being upset that you aren’t playing it RIGHT NOW instead of being at work, but that’s about it.

I think this was the inspiration behind Jay Leno’s decision to ship himself to Port-Au-Prince in his 1955 Packard Caribbean so he can host a new discounted-admission comedy tour he thought up called “Don’t You Haiti When…”
