"…if Mountain Goats songs teach you anything, it’s not pessimism or bitterness or melodrama; it’s loyalty. Not to the people you’ve loved, exactly, but to the fact that you did love them. Maybe you don’t anymore, but that doesn’t invalidate the choices you made when you did. If you listen to enough Mountain Goats songs you learn that there is a kind of dignity in honoring feelings you no longer have. John Darnielle’s people fall out of love, yes, but they never forget that they were in it."

Alternative version of my joke:
“I have eaten the plums that were in the icebox
And which you were probably saving for breakfast
Forgive me they were delicious so sweet and so cold,”
Writes Quetzalcoatl. The god leans back, pleased with their new venture into art. From now on, they think, I…

ripchords:

Abuse is messed up and wrapped up in so many other things happening in your life at the same time and sometimes it just doesn’t make sense. It took me a long time to figure out what was happening to me, but once I did, The Sunset Tree by The Mountain Goats became really, really important to me. I could barely understand the things happening to and around me, let alone explain them, but this album knew what I was going through. It could speak for me when I couldn’t. It became my strength when it seemed that I made only of weakness.
The album’s liner notes feature a message from John Darnielle, the writer, singer, and guitarist of The Mountain Goats:

"Made possible by my stepfather, Mike Noonan (1940-2004): may the peace which eluded you in life be yours now
Dedicated to any young men and women anywhere who live with people who abuse them, with the following good news:
you are going to make it out of there aliveyou will live to tell your storynever lose hope”

"I was young working with the severely mentally ill, you know, and you sort of soak up some stuff… but the years are sooner or later gonna put you in some tough spaces where you will realize that the distances between you and the hardest-off people you’ve seen are a little shorter than you thought they were."
