My great-grandma died, she was a hundred. She said she was a hundred but I’m pretty sure she was older. She had just recently moved back to Michigan to spite my grandma, after living in the desert for decades. Probably not a great idea! It’s so weird not to be part of a living five gen sequence anymore. There had been five living generations for 18 or 19 years! Anyway nobody called me to tell me, of course. My mom found out on facebook. Now we shall see about all the alleged money she always accused everybody of trying to get at.
"This Is Your Death Song" is a So Much for the Afterglow outtake and I really mourn it. It probably didn’t make it past this recording (anywhere) because it’s redundant even, like, in the context of a catalog that is about performative emotional redundancy, but whatever. I really wish I we coulda had this song, it’s so good
*Pure White Evil-era, not actually from the SMftA sessions, “an idea…not a real song" which makes sense re: my thesis about how he Does Songwriting (my songwriting dreamworld)
