I was so pleasantly surprised and fascinated by the range and quantity of questions! I really want to get to them all eventually. I'm choosing a few for today basically at random. I might also take some to the free newsletter (I'll ask the q askers first if they're ok with that.) Without further ado, let's get to my specious wisdom and biased opinions!!!!
Q. "What is your favorite Of Montreal song and why?"
A. Questioner, I think you already probably know that it's a song from Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? The only question is, which one? It's funny to think that when this album came out, mental illness as explicit muse seemed sort of fresh and new and funny, and now every Tom Dick and Phoebe is like "(sings) hope my lexapro works this time ..." Anyway, I still love that whole album. It's really hard to beat "A Sentence of Sorts In Kongsvinger" for the opening line alone: "I spent the winter on the verge of a total breakdown while living in Norway/I felt the darkness of the black metal bands." Like. Who hasn't??????
