just an old hip[ster]

every decemberists concert is different, and every decemberists concert is the same...

music is an incredible force. the hearing of a song can transport one back in time. the decemberists catalog has become a personal time machine for me, taking me back to late nights in college, days spent on southern california beaches, meeting deadlines and budgets after graduation, and months spent unemployed. there's no way to know what memories this album or this concert will bring in the future, but i have a feeling the song to do the spurring will be "january hymn", which is by far, one of the most beautiful songs ever written and performed by the decemberists.

or this year could find me fulling my life long passion for mining, in which case it will probably be "rox in a box".
