I thought this might be of interest to anyone in New England...
Next weekend is the debut of my senior thesis performance in Theater and Dance.  The performance is called "Up and over We Go," and it's a dance-theater piece inspired by In the Aeroplane over the Sea

It's being performed at Trinity College in Hartford, CT on Feb 10th and 11th, both at 5 pm, and it's free.

Can you help set up an "Aeroplane" book reading in London?
I'll be in London, England on November 7, and would really like to find a place where I might read from my 33 1/3 book on "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea," perhaps with a smattering of the "Lost in the Grooves" anthology, too. If you are in London and have any connections with a bookstore, gallery, club or other space where such a reading might be welcome, I'd appreciate hearing from you via email, amscray@gmail.com. It's possible that John Perry will also be available to read from his 33 1/3 Hendrix tome.

And stay tuned for news on a Paris reading for earlier that week, also featuring Miles Marshall Lewis with his 33 1/3 book on Sly Stone.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

True crime, bubblegum, Neutral Milk Hotel on KXLU
My pal Nathan Marsak and I have been invited by Stella, whose Stray Pop has filled the L.A. airwaves with much wonder since 1980, to co-host her show this Friday night from midnight to three a.m.

We'll be talking about a whole bunch of things, including my book about "In the Aeroplane Over The Sea." Call in if you like! It streams over the internet, so you don't need to be in Los Angeles to hear the show.

Here is a question for you: if you were going to go on the radio and could only play a couple of songs by Neutral Milk Hotel, which ones would you play, and why?

What else will we be talking about? Obscure true crime stories (we blog and lead bus tours at http://www.1947project.com). The thrift store record discoveries we used to play on The Manny Chavez Show in the early 90s. Bubblegum Music. My little journal of unpopular culture, Scram. And more TBA.

We hope you can tune in!


What: Manny Chavez Show Reunion
When: Friday July 14/Saturday July 15 from midnight-3am
Where: KXLU 88.9 FM in L.A., streaming at http://www.kxlu.com
Request line: (310) 338-KXLU

Does anyone have a better of "Now There is Nothing" than the one at The Collective.Net?

Sorry for the vicious cross-posting, but...
It's possible this question has been asked before and that the answer should be/is painfully obvious, but I was wondering if anyone had had any success in writing to Jeff? I'm not really looking for a response or anything, I sort of just want to write him and... I dunno. Too late to make complete sentences work out. Anyways, does anyone have any idea of his address?

Fingers Through the notches in your spine...
So, just for a lark. What's everybody's favorite Neutral Milk Hotel lyric?

I know, I know, its like asking a mother to chose a favorite child, but try.

I remember the first time I heard In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, the lyrics damaged me and brought me to tears. That intense, earnest voice uses those words as weapons. Jeff Mangum is an emotional assasin and I wish he'd come back.

So, after my rambling, my question still stands: Favorite lyrics?

My two favorite lines are

Your father made fetuses with flesh-licking ladies


She will feed you tomatoes and radio wire, a retire to sheets safe and clean,
but don't hate her when she gets up to leave

NMH interviews in the new issue of Scram
It is a banner day: I just got back from picking up Scram 22 from the printer, and I'm dizzy with ink fumes.

The new issue of the journal of unpopular culture includes a feature comprised of the interviews that informed the Ruston section of my 33 1/3 book about Neutral Millk Hotel. Robert Schneider, Laura Carter, Julian Koster and Scott Spillane all speak at greater length than they did in the book about E6 pre-Athens, and Robert shares some live photos from 1996 that I think have not been published previously.

Also in this issue: nature-loving folkie Vashti Bunyan, gay glam-punk Paul "Baby Bones" Vanase, private librarian and African literary scholar Kurt Thometz, Chicago bluesman Nick Gravenites and session piano cat Lincoln Mayorga, plus scads of reviews.

If interested in this or other Scrams, please visit http://www.scrammagazine.com for more info

It's topical.
The latest Spin magazine features an article on Elephant6 and their recent activity. Jeff is included.

I suggest picking it up if you happen to pass it on the rack.

Neutral Milk Hotel reading... The Podcast
On Wednesday night, I read from my new book about Neutral Milk Hotel at Book Soup in West Hollywood. Please visit the Lost in the Grooves blog for a complete rundown, with photos and a podcast featuring audience members talking about their own experiences with the band, and me reading the book's conclusion:

WFMU playlists?
Would anyone happen to have the playlists to the Jefferson shows on WFMU? There was a webpage that had a diligent chronicle of almost everything played, but it has since disappeared.

hi. i just found this community and am super excited to have found it.

i have an odd request.

i have this mp3. and it's of jeff and someone else, talking about sideburns and puzzle pieces and college and a bunch of random things. it's six minutes and fifteen seconds long. i have no idea where i found it, but i was wondering if anyone had ever heard it before, and if you have, do you know if a transcript of the conversation exists and if so, where it can be found?

thanks in advance.

for the curious

This is extremely odd and surreal to say but...I talked to Scott Spillane on the phone today. Turns out, his sister owns the place where I work out. I guess she truly has no idea what a big deal Scott and his bands are. After I had a gleeful freak-out moment akin to finding out someone is closely related to Elvis or Kurt Cobain or something, she called him. Today's his birthday--40th. She calls him "bub". He didn't answer when she first called but he called her back within a few minutes. She started telling him about me and how I'm a huge fan, etc. He told her, "See? I told you, I'm FAMOUS!". We all laughed. Anyway, she handed me the phone and we chatted for a few minutes. I wished him a happy birthday and told him that we claim NMH as a Louisiana product and that there's quite a following of the band here. He just giggled and said he didn't think there would be anyone in Louisiana who'd like him/them. I told him that if he ever comes this way, LOTS of people would turn out to hear him. Also, when I asked about Jeff, he just said that he'd brought him out of retirement. And as to whether they'd put out another Neutral Milk album, he just said he didn't know--better than "no" for sure! Anyway, it was just a very odd turn of events, and a happy day. Thought I'd share.

Current Mood: cheerful

Somone just posted this in one of the NMH communities (http://www.livejournal.com/community/intheaeroplane/) about how at an Olivia Tremoir Control at the Bowrey Ballroom in NYC Jeff came out on stage and sang two songs, I Have Been Floated and Shaving Spiders. The post is moving, so read it. I wish I had been there that night!! I think this is a very good sign.

Current Mood: excited
