Hi! I was browsing Tumblr, and I found this audio post of a live recording of "No Children." John Darnielle was talking about a break up that sucked ass, and if it was a chart that someone looked at, it would be "nothing but butts. Just butts." It was really funny, but I forgot to save it to my likes and now I can't find it. Do you have any idea what live performance it was from? I've looked in the tags and I can't find it at all. It may have been a Canadian show? Idk. Great blog! Thanks!!!

Took me a while to actually find it, but I believe this is it:

Old College Try
This is the last one, I swear. At the risk of creating the Godfather Part III of Mountain Goats posters, I’ve mixed a 1956 cigarette advertisement with the lyrics to Old College Try by John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats. Here’s the original ad from Vintage America’s Flickr, here’s the awesome poster by Todd Atticus I got the idea from, and here are the No Children and See America Right posters.
Here’s the 18” x 24” poster torrent file (25.6 MB)

Whee, Tallahassee Turns Ten followed me.

tallahussie:

I only hope it was because they recognised the awesome pun/MSPA reference in my name.

For y’all that don’t know, Tallahassee Turns Ten is a cover album of the Mountain Goats’ “Tallahassee”, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of its release. A different artist does each track, and it’s totally badass. Check it out, yo.

The pun was what sealed the deal.

Thank you SO much for following me! Otherwise I would never have known about this project despite I believe seeing John make vague reference to it on Twitter and always forgetting to look it up. This is AMAZING. Such great artists, perfect even, to have been involved in this.

Saw your post on labels and one sheets and agreed pretty heartily. How could I not follow?

Thanks for digging it!

Hi! Awesome concept! One question: What exactly is Crooked Neighbor?

In a nutshell, Crooked Neighbor is a production company that commissions musicians to record songs to benefit non-profits and charities. 

Oh yeah, and if you ask nicely, Crooked Neighbor also does web design projects.

John Green has some insightful things to say about doing things you love, even if you do them badly.

Also, he sings a snippet of “Love, love, love” at the end.
