1) I was in sixth grade when he died. My elementary music teacher was devastated. She wrote a commemorative additional verse to "Rocky Mountain High" and made us sing it while she cried. "He's gone in the autumn of his 53rd year Going home to a place he's never been before He's left this world forever But his music will live on Every time someone shares his songs Rocky Mountain hiiiiiiiigh . . ." 2) My grandpa tells a story about how he once saw John Denver in a bar and asked him for a signature to give to his daughter/my mom. John Denver obliged. My grandpa then bought him a beer, to which John Denver said he would get the next round... "Son of a bitch died owing me a beer."

Moses Sumney is the best thing going. Here are some predictions about his EGOT career trajectory: 1) Grammy for "Best New Artist" 2) He will write and perform a badass Bond movie theme song, for which he will win an Oscar. 3) He will take over Michael Strahan's job in the now-named "Live with Kelly & Moses" TV show and subsequently win an Emmy. 4) After crashing out of the industry in fantastic fashion with a three-hour Emmy speech comprised solely of a looping riff of "Scat Man (ski-ba-bop-ba-dop-bop)," he gets a job as an usher in a Broadway theatre. His talents at ushery are so great, a new Tony category is invented and awarded to him.
