i lied ill never get over it

I don’t wish for a bus to hit you or someone to beat you up or anything like that. Instead, I hope that you fall in love. Like truly in love. I hope that he’s everything you’ve ever asked for and more. I hope he’s the source of your happiness, and that he’ll be the first to make you feel genuinely beautiful.
Then, after one or two years, I hope to god that some girl exactly like you swoops in and ruins it all. I hope that you scream into your pillow every night asking yourself why he woke up one morning and decided that he preferred her light blue eyes over your warm mocha ones. I hope that every time you try to kiss him after, you taste nothing but the lies on his lips. And after it’s over, I hope that you never receive an apology. You never get answers. I hope you blame yourself for the longest time like I did. Then, maybe, you would understand.

Are ever going to sell more come, come to the sunset tree? It's all I want in life.

So, why not, here is the deal with those. When I made The Sunset Tree, I kinda figured the Mountain Goats were headed back to part-time-world; I’d scaled back my day job during the Tallahassee year, and I’d been trying to make touring-and-record-sales work as a rent-maker after we left Iowa. I was managing, but it’s really important to me to pull my weight around the house, and it was getting increasingly harder to sell records with the general rise of the internet, period. See-the-difference-in-your-pocket harder. Tallahassee and We Shall All Be Healed had both found their partisans, but it wasn’t a big audience at all, and when I listened to the mastered Sunset Tree, I honestly had no idea how people were going to take it. So I assumed it wouldn’t do very well, and I thought, well, I may have a little bit of time on my hands between the release of this record and finding a day job, it’d be cool to do something cool with the demos, old-school heads will probably be stoked to hear them and that’s when I got the outstanding idea to press up 1,000 copies of them and paint and/or collage the sleeves.

We were on tour when the blank sleeves, with the vinyl in them, arrived on the porch. My wife hauled them all into the house. I got home and looked at all these boxes and went to work, and honestly it’s amazing to me that I finished as many as I did during that first year or two, because the album actually did surprisingly (to me) well, and I didn’t end up looking for a job or going back to nursing school to finally get my RN. I just kept touring. You can’t really make good CCTST sleeves on tour (you can bring a lot of blank ones and have big plans to work in hotel rooms, but it doesn’t really pan out), and when you get back from tour, you may or may not feel inspired to sit down for eight-hour days of sleeve-decorating where you finish maybe ten if you’re lucky.

Still, I got a bunch done; Lalitree & Perry helped a lot; life just kept getting busier. We moved across town. The ones that’d been sold at shows started turning up on eBay for absurd amounts of money. That bugged me, because it means that if I go sell some at shows, some shmoe tries to buy three and swears he’s got two bros who wanted to be here but they’re at a funeral or whatever and me being me I have a hard time hearing a sad story and not wanting to help and of course you see where this is going, inside of 24 hours those records are up for auction and getting 200 bucks a pop, and who, really, can blame the merch table bro who lied and laid down 75 bucks and turned it into 600, things are tough all over, gotta get over how you can. Still to me it meant I didn’t feel super-driven to finish them, because it’s a bummer to have dudes lie to your face, right? It is a bummer. And it’s no fun to go “I don’t care about your imaginary funeral bros, one per customer,” either. 

But it breeds ill will, people thinking “I’ll never be able to afford one,” it’s a drag, honestly the only way to do something like this is to have all 1,000 ready to go before you put ‘em on sale. Live and learn. The last three years running, FINISH SUNSET TREES has been on my New Year’s Resolutions list, but I have become a dad to two magnificent young men, the most I can finish in a day and get all my other stuff done is three. Three. That right there is a sad number. 

But I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately (hence the wordiness of this post), because it’s the 10th anniversary of the album this year, I’d like to have them done before the year’s out. If I hand-decorate ‘em, that’s not gonna happen. But if I silkscreened the remaining ones (there are about 250 of them), I could be done, and plus, the silkscreen edition would actually be rarer than the handmade ones, which is kind of perverse in a way that’s appealing to me. 

So this is in my thoughts. I have an idea for a design and have raised the question with Alyson, who helps me keep business stuff organized. If I don’t do that, then the answer is shorter: yes, I’ll probably finish maybe 10 a year tops for the next twenty years and they still won’t be all done and I’ll throw in the towel.

But a 10-year silkscreen edition of the remaining blanks seems the likeliest possibility. 


Hi there. Long time lurker, first time submitter. I know a few other people have submitted the theory that Aria might be pregnant and it seems they’ve been shot down without much consideration, but I think it’s a real possibility - and, personally, I think it would be a great way story line - not to mention a way to make sure Ezria is endgame (as it has been hinted).

Here’s why I think it’s a possibility:

First of all, Aria vomited after a flashback of the first time she met Ezra. While it’s definitely possible that the thought of his deception and all of the lies he has told her over the last two years made her sick to her stomach, I think it means more. After all of the torturous situations A has put the girls through, we’ve never seen them get physically ill. I mean, Aria didn’t have such a weak stomach when she woke up in a dark enclosed box next to a corpse. She didn’t toss her cookies after catching her father cheating on her mom. It just seems like way too big of a coincidence that THIS particular situation is the one that affected her physical well-being.

Also, in tonight’s episode, Aria explicitly mentions that she was sleeping with Ezra. While we all obviously knew this, it’s the first time she has really said it out loud to any of her friends. Why not say, “You weren’t the one that was in love with him,” instead of “You weren’t the one that was sleeping with him?” I don’t think that choice of words is coincidental. 

Give it some thought before you dismiss it too quickly. I suppose only time will tell!
