Comments from tcolerachel

I am a little biased about this because Kim is a friend, but it bums me out that so much of the attention paid to the book so far has taken the form of quotes taken entirely out of context or a focus specifically on the divorce stuff. The book is a really beautiful, articulate examination of her entire life as an artist. I understand why people are so fascinated by the end of her marriage, but honestly the other stuff in the book–particularly her involvement in the 80’s NYC art world, her thoughts about art and the creative process–is about a million times more interesting.

I approve of this cat-oriented artwork. And the song.

I generally enjoy that my Stereogum interviews are casual and conversational, but maybe you’re right–I probably could have cut some of our initial chatter. In any case, I hope there was at least something in the interview you enjoyed. I don’t want anyone to feel like their time is being wasted.

Yes, total spellcheck malfunction. I could die a thousand deaths for not spotting that, as Icky Mettle truly is one of my favorite albums of all time. SORRY, FOLKS.

July 18, 2011 on Progress Report: Eric Bachmann (Archers Of Loaf, Crooked Fingers)

Yes, “When The President Talks to God” is a stand-alone single that Bright Eyes released in 2005. I didn’t necessarily mean to imply that it was included on “Wide Awake.”

I stand totally–and accurately–corrected. For some reason The Feelies have always felt like a predecessor to those bands, but clearly that is only a reality in my overcluttered brain. Thanks for setting me straight.
