Quick Update

So after spending 2 1/2 hours in car driving back to Cincinnati, I'm worn out.

So, instead of spending the next hour writing a post, I'm gonna rest up and maybe head down to the Southgate House to see Brendon Benson.

Otherwise, here's a great song by one of my favorite CDs recently: Final Fantasy's Has A Good Home.

MP3 Your Light Is Spent

Sufjan Live Video

As I work on my final Sociology paper, I just have one thing to say today:

Head over to You Ain't No Picasso for a full concert video of the one and only Sufjan Stevens. Props to Matt for putting this is up.

Sufjan Stevens Live in Aspen Torrent

I'm tired. It's been a long day and I have an 8 page paper due Friday for my Sociology 301 class. So in place of a real post, here's the link to the torrent for Sufjan Steven's performance in Aspen, via the always amazing Colorado Tapers.

Link to Torrent. (356 MB, FLAC)

The setlist is almost exactly the same as the show in Denver, minus the encore:

1. The Fifty States
2. The Tallest Man, The Broadest Shoulders
3. Prarie Fire That Wanders About
4. They Are Night Zombies!! They are Neighbors!! They Have Come Back From the Dead!! Ahhhh!!!
5. Sister
6. John Wayne Gacy, Jr.
7. Casimir Pulaski Day
8. Jacksonville Cheer
9. Jacksonville
10. The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades is Out to Get Us
11. Chicago Cheer
12. Chicago
13. Come On! Feel The Illinoise!
14. Metropolis Cheer
15. The Man of Metropolis Steals our Hearts
16. Illinois Cheer

The sound quality is apparently ok, but don't expect anything great. It's a good show nonetheless.

New Header...

Out of sheer boredom and appreciation for Sufjan Steven's humorous song titles, I changed the header a bit.

Keep in mind, this still isn't the final product... so stay tuned for that.

Sufjan Stevens Live @ The Bluebird

I got this wonderful Sufjan Stevens performance from 7/30/05 via Colorado Tapers. So all the thanks goes to them.

Now, however, are the goods.

This is what I'm gonna do. I know if I put up the whole show, it'd kill my bandwidth. Judging by how my bandwidth has been going recently, I thought I'd put it up via MegaUpload.

[EDIT] - Chris over at Music.For.Snobs has generously uploaded the whole thing track by track. Head over there if you'd like to get it that way.

So here's tracklist:

1. The Fifty States Song
2. The Tallest Man, The Broadest Shoulders
3. Prarie Fire that Wanders About
4. They Are Night Zombies!! They Are Neighbors!! They Have Come Back From The Dead!! Ahhhh!
5. Sister
6. John Wayne Gacy, Jr.
7. Casimir Pulaski Day
8. Jacksonville (Cheer)
9. Jacksonville
10. The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades is Out to Get Us!
11. Chicago (Cheer)
12. Chicago
13. Come On! Feel the Illinoise!
14. Man of Metropolis (Cheer)
15. The Man of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts

Encore:
16. The Star Spangled Banner
17. A Good Man is Hard to Find

So here's the whole thing for download from MegaUpload because this would definitely reak havoc on my server space. Let me know if i goes down. The file is 100.7MB zip archive and was encoded from FLAC to 160kbps MP3. Enjoy.

Download Via MegaUpload (Follow Link to Download)

The audio quality is really pretty good, and the songs are performed marvelously. Definitely worth downloading.

New Sufjan Stevens Song

So I'm guessing most of you Sufjan-ites have gotten wind of the Rubber Soul tribute album heading our way this fall. Well, Sufjan Stevens contributed a track to the album: "What Goes On."

It's up for stream here.

Or if you prefer an mp3:

MP3 What Goes On (VIA RAPIDSHARE -- >Follow Link to Download.)

[EDIT]:So aparently some people might be confused by Rapidshare. Right now (10:31pm EST) is "happy hours" at Rapidshare. Meaning that there are no server limitations (concurrent downloads, download limits, etc). This results in heavy traffic. If it says the server is busy, just hit refresh a few times and it'll come up. Or wait another hour or so until the servers calm down.

I'm not hosting this myself because I know it would kill my bandwidth. So it's up on Rapidshare. Let me know if it goes down and I'll re-upload it.

Keep in mind this was ripped from the stream, so it isn't the best quality, but it's listenable.

I do, however, really like the song. Thoughts?

Header...

I added a header. It isn't final, but I thought it would spruce up the place nicely.


Thoughts?
