You were so right about Sufjan Stevens. Man. I'm currently wearing out Casimir Pulaski Day, which means that I'm tearing up everytime he sings "Oh the morning when you finally go" and then DEAD by the time the last part comes around.

Oh the glory that the Lord has made
And the complications when I see His face
In the morning in the window

Oh the glory when He took our place
But He took my shoulders and He shook my face
And He takes and He takes and He takes

So yes, Sufjan Stevens. Highly recommended. Not all of his songs make you want to cry.


Meet Harvey...

So I assume that most of you don't know that I have acquired a guitar. Yes, the day we all have looked forward to or possibly feared is here. I shall learn to play and accompany myself whilst singing. Note that this is not actually MY guitar, though mine is black and tough. This is why I named him Harvey Wallbanger (the author wishes to thank Heather for the suggestion of Harvey).

However, as of now, I have no idea how to play or what strings are what. So, if anyone I know lives near me and wishes to help me learn, I will be most appreciative. Not appreciative in the sense of I can pay you (YET), but appreciative nonetheless. Seriously, I would really love it if someone could teach me how to play.
