May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers 10/10

Now I may be biased because this is my favorite band of all time, but this was absolutely phenomenal. I can’t stand documentaries, but this was so well-done and so put together. It flowed beautifully and it made me love them so much more than I already did, I didn’t think that was even possible. I’m so glad that I was able to see this, I will never stop singing its praises. I highly suggest that you take a moment out of your day to listen to one or ten or a hundred of their songs, you won’t regret it. It will change your life, for the better.

infinite list of perfect performers: scott avett (the avett brothers)

you know, maybe somebody should just say, ‘they’re just songwriters. maybe they’re just poets.’ if we’re lucky, we’re poets. maybe we’re just artists, and we just make things, and for the time being music is one of the things we make. maybe, eventually we’ll build houses, or maybe we’ll make playsets for kids instead, i don’t know. but we try to be craftsmen of some sort. that’s kind of the movement, the need to make something. i know, personally, that i can say that that’s been the priority. and music has been something that I’ve had quite a bit of joy in making, and there’s beautiful challenges in it. as long as i’m moved emotionally, there’s a need to do it. as long as i’m breathing, and observing, i’m affected, and as long as i’m affected, i write for some reason.
