Yeah, you know what?Â I kinda donâ€™t feel like writing a lot tonight.Â So I wonâ€™t.Â Itâ€™s not you by the way, itâ€™s me.Â It has everything to do with playing with my kitten and talking online to sister # 3 and making mix CDs and staring, grinning, stupidly into space recalling the weekend and washing up and putting away washing.
Sometimes, as Even (and Benjamin) say, life gets in the way.
Still, what you will get is this – possibly THE MOST exciting music news Iâ€™ve had for some time.Â Probably since I heard who the Wilco support was.Â And even then, this trumps it by about a billionty.Â And youâ€™ve probably all already heard it, being the intertron-savy types that you are, but still.

And the boy and I are talking about going to Meredith this year.Â Potentially, if the planets and the stars and the work schedules align.Â Can you imagine SUFJAN at MEREDITH.Â Good lord.Â A girl can hope at least.
Also, when I hear Wake Up and/or Intervention live, I think I might faint.
And again also, just because I havenâ€™t been random enough tonight, I think Iâ€™m having some sort of illicit love affair with Will Sheffâ€™s voice.Â Particularly in the song Another Radio Song, and particularly at the point from around 2 minutes 20 when he starts with the â€“
Bless this tiny alley
We have fallen from tall buildings
We have fallen through the air
Into a garden sweetly smelling of the softest
Sleeping flowers now they sit under the sidewalk
Now theyâ€™re waiting for the shining of some future sun to show us
All that is your beauty
Oh and all that brings you pleasure
I could sigh into your hide
And say I hope Iâ€™m here forever
