This One Goes Out To The One I Love

So I was checking over at Sterogum today and he’s got a review of the Bookeaters event that featured Sufjan, David Byrne, Dave Eggers and Jon Stewart. Anyway I reminded me how much I love Sufjan so here’s my two faves.

Sufjan Stevens – The Dress Looks Nice On You

Sufjan Stevens – The One I Love (REM Cover Live @ SXSW)

You can cop Seven Swans by Sufjan from emusic here and go get some Eggers from Mcsweeny’s here. As a treat here is an excerpt from my favorite Eggers project when he sent all the letters to CEOs of Fortune 500 companies as a dog – ahahahhaahha

‘Oh, I’m a fast dog. I’m fast-fast. It’s true and I love being fast I admit it I love it. You know fast dogs. Dogs that just run by and you say ‘Damn! That’s a fast dog!’ Well, that’s me. A fast dog. Hooooooooo! I’m a fast fast dog. Hoooooooooooooooo! You should watch me sometime. Just watch how fast I go when I’m going my fastest, when I’ve really got to move for something, when I’m really on my way — man do I get going sometimes, weaving like a missile, weaving like a missile between trees and around bushes and then — pop! — I can go over a fence or a baby or a rock or anything because I’m a fast fast dog and I can jump like a fucking gazelle.
