The quest to convert the entirety of New York City to the Church of Jason Anderson continues. (He's playing every Monday in November at Pete's Candy Store. I wrote about last Monday here.) I won't write about last night in crazy detail, but suffice to say there were three times as many people there as last week and we all left with smiles on our faces as big as all outdoors.

"It sounds so obvious, and that's the best goddamn part!"

I don't think I'm going to make it next week because I have to go back to Kalamazoo 'cause I'm in this movie that's shooting there, which takes me out of the running for the perfect-attendance prizes at the end of the month. But you should go. Last week and this week and how it all made me want to tell people "GO!" made me think about overhype. And how we're so superinundated with opinion that the only ones that rise to the top are the ones that say "This absolutely sucks" or "This is far and away the greatest thing of all time." And how we feel burned when those things aren't true and that makes us tune out the next time someone comes around heralding something as the greatest.

Seeing dude live is really, really, uniquely great. And if you go and you don't agree, that's cool. But at least you went and at least you're developing the habit of going and seeing instead of the habit of shrugging and staying indoors and resting assured that you're smarter than everyone else and that the world is largely bullshit. I guess that oughta be true in general. Trying stuff that disappoints us is good practice. It's a badge of openness. More and more I'm starting to think openness is the greatest characteristic you can have.

(Also: I don't believe you'll be disappointed. For real.)

Anyway, more songs! "Watch Your Step" is in the running for my favorite song of all time. No joke! (You can download whole bunches of songs at Jason's website. "Tour Support" and "On The Street" are both downloadable EPs, ferrinstance.)

Jason Anderson - "Watch Your Step"
Jason Anderson - "Jonesboro"
Jason Anderson - "Hidden Light"




STORIES, REMASTERED! - A couple years ago a weird glitch fucked up a bunch of stories I'd posted. I am (slowly) going back and fixing them. Here are some I've fixed.

This is such a terrific resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It is the old what goes around comes around routine. Did you acquired lots of links and I see lots of trackbacks??

@chels I know what you mean, its hard to find good help these days. People now days just don't have the work ethic they used to have. I mean consider whoever wrote this post, they must have been working hard to write that good and it took a good bit of their time I am sure. I work with people who couldn't write like this if they tried, and getting them to try is hard enough as it is.
