a new song, written at bard the other day and then recorded last night (april 6th) at my show with neil… this is the first song i’ve written in a few years.
titling it was hard. neil wins for now, it’s called “The Thing About Things”. but maybe it’ll change.
many thanks to Andrew Geha for recording it/sharing.

I Google You is very funny. Until it makes you want to cry, of course.
OLD. SCHOOL. LOVE. me & regina spektor (@ReSpektor), right before a gig together a long time ago in philadelphia.
her songs, her voice, her music, those WORDS, those worlds - came into my ears like a music box hurricane. the album was “soviet kitsch”…the first record i’d heard since high school that made me obsessed. i listened to it again and again and again, on a bike, in bed, in the car. i was so fucking glad she agreed to open up for my band. soon after, she got famous.
i was happy.
I have absorbed the essence of Brendan.
My The Bed Song scarf, which I’m selling for $25 + shipping.
It’s 6 feet long, with little bells on the ends, which are cut into points. The lyrics are painted in black, with the words in the song related to beds in red. The stencil is Times New Roman. On the very end is a bed I hand-painted in red.
If you are interested in buying it, please send me a message on here and we can discuss further over e-mail. The shipping price has not been determined, since I do not know how much it would cost, exactly.
I am also doing custom-order scarves. Those will be $50 +shipping, and can be any length, size, shape, color, whatever. The font will still remain the same, since that is the only stencil I have, but if I get a new one, I’ll let you know. Keep in mind that if you do order a custom scarf to give me at least a month to finish it, since I am in the middle of school and these things take tons of time. Also, if you choose a short scarf, pick a short song. There’s only so many lyrics a 4-foot scarf can fit.
Payments will go through my paypal. I’ve decided to try and sell things on tumblr first, since etsy is currently being super difficult for me.
was tweeted this photo from @duchessloves, who took it of her friend, who is in the hospital.
the lyrics are from “in my mind”.
everything’s a circle.
sometimes i don’t know if you guys understand how much you save me.
good lord. I just came across this picture again…only to find it had almost 50,000 notes. it must have been making the rounds.
that makes me happy. it’s worth sharing.
I love you.
Alright, Basil. This is for you.
I kind of took your whole comment about how “Girl Anachronism” is just a song about fitting in as many words as possible in one breath, as a challenge. I knew the song, but I’d never actually paid full attention to the lyrics until now!
I’ll admit, it was a mouthful, that’s for sure. And, no matter how many times I tried, there were a few spots I kept tripping over, but let’s see if this isn’t too bad. I haven’t listened to it, so I’m sorry if the quality is terrible, or it’s too loud of quiet.
