  1. Scary tweet. I hope for everyone's sake there is a positive resolution to all this. To me the best case would be MG reaches out to whoever he should apologize to and does so genuinely. Also commit to getting some help and being a better person. That would be a positive example to set and allow some good to come from this. Less important: I've listened to a couple of MG's songs in the past couple weeks. Just a couple. I've found myself still appreciating the music and having a connection with it.
  2. I think you can have a lot of personal demons and still be able to comment on some social justice stuff, like in Blue Skies Over Bad Lands. However, She's In It For The Money probably doesn't hold up too good.
  3. hah. Thank you I think we all needed a little levity mixed in here. I can't help but keep thinking about the very vague premonition I had when the Sicily video came out. I kept thinking to myself "when has MG including his girlfriend / significant other in one of his works ever not been regretted later?" Just seemed odd to me at the time, and well...
  4. The statement was probably guided by a lawyer.
  5. Thanks for sharing. Right now it's just kind of cathartic to read the thoughts of others and commiserate to some degree.
  6. Thanks for the kind words. I didn't delve into podcasts about Ryan Adams but I did seek out a message board to see what other people were saying. Most fans were grappling with similar feelings as me. Some didn't take any of it too personally and said they would keep listening. That message board eventually shut down because I guess the owners stopped caring enough to maintain it and they felt people needed to move on. Ryan Adams had announced he was going to release three albums in 2019, which I was really excited about. Then it all went to shit so quickly. I guess it had been going to shit fo
  7. Yep and that's your right and I don't fault you for it. As someone said earlier in the thread, it probably comes down to a personal choice / threshold moving forward. As for RA & MG, yeah that is something huh? I love music. I've loved it my whole life. RA & MG have been so central to my music fandom. That's why right now I'm having a hard time just resolving to never listen to them again. I can't conclude that right now. That's why I'm just...taking a break. I'll see how I feel down the road. If others come to more immediate resolutions to ditch artists like this, I don't
  8. I've been a fan of MG for 20 years now. His music has been a huge part of the soundtrack of my life, much like most of you. I've attended numerous concerts and met him a few times after shows. I even flew from here in the US twice to see him play live. I can't say I'm surprised about all this. Obviously it sucks the most for the people who have been directly personally affected. On a less important level, it also sucks for the loyal fans who have been "betrayed" as someone else in this thread put it. I agree with the idea that MG deserves an opportunity to share his side, but I don
  9. I have the 20 minute Something Like A Storm as an mp3. I have no problem sharing it through the proper channels. It's still one of my favorite tracks Matt has done. Was kinda sad when none of it made it into the album version. Another rarity I haven't seen mentioned in this thread is Bad Pennies. Uploaded without fanfare to Matt's myspace page, sometime between 2004 - 2006....he described it as a joke song and quickly deleted it. I think he said he was just needed to quickly host it somewhere online to send it to someone for a laugh. I still have the mp3 of that too. For a joke son
  10. Arrows is probably my favorite MG album of that decade. I really like the cohesiveness of it. Just all seems to fit together. Close second is Lights because every time I listen to it it transports me back to a very special time in my life (the first year I dated my eventual wife). Wish I would have gotten Arrows on vinyl.
  11. Cool! I like it. I love atmospheric stuff like this.
  12. Bummer but everyone's taking a hit right now. When major sports leagues start suspending play everything else has to fall in line. You don't want to be singled out as the one venue that stayed open and became a breeding ground. Matt and his team obviously are doing the right thing. I would imagine this fall is gonna be a very busy time for many people since that's when they're going to try to reschedule a lot of stuff.
  13. Thank you for the new album, Matt! Congrats on the release. And thanks for the insights. The point about the value placed on the Da Vinci painting vs. the works of Mozart was really interesting. Had never thought of it that way. I've connected with all kinds of music throughout my life, and in turn I have personally placed way more value on music. That is to say I've spent way more money on music than visual art, but more importantly I've felt deeper emotional connections with music than any other creative work. The thought actually crossed my mind recently that you might consider re
  14. Yeah I figure with more people moving toward streaming that companies will just get tired of the added cost of providing MP3 files with vinyls and just get rid of that courtesy. I'm still a dinosaur that uses a finely curated iPod though so I still pay for downloads here and there, and I like to support artists especially on Bandcamp. For now I paid for digital Moving Walls and will maybe eventually get the vinyl. But I'm moving into a new apt in a few weeks so gotta conserve funds.
