It's probably just me, but I don't understand what's so sacred about the Jandek mystery. I guess because I've never believed he was some recluse misanthrope teetering on the edge of suicide. Agreed. This is one of the main reasons I hated the documentary so much. Nobody wants to talk about Jandek's...

Yeah, it seems totally bizarre that he would do it now... but think about it. Everything Jandek does is random. There is no system or process to anything. The 'Chinese' font on "One Foot in the North", the (presumably) intentional typos on some record sleeves, the a capella albums, etc. So, from tha...

The question this poses for me (since he looked happy on stage) is this: Has he been performing live all these years? It's quite possible he's played before in places with a lower profile than an experimental music festival (cofeeshops, open mic nights, whatever). I'm not surprised to hear that he s...

From what I can tell it was actually him. Here's an email a friend forwarded me. I guess I believe it though I'm pretty weirded out and even a little disappointed that it's true. Oh well, maybe somebody got it on tape, at least. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Deserted Village" <desertedvillage@...

i wish i could understand the appeal Some people prefer music and film with a slower rate of change than usual. Art with a minimum of material allows for maximum clarity. When so little is happening the tiniest detail becomes a huge event. Have you ever seen a film where someone seeing their reflec...

Hey everybody, thanks for the kind kind words about the weird weeds. We had a great weekend despite some insane overnight driving and a missing guitarist. I've been totally amazed and overwhelmed by the people who seem to be really into what we're doing. Connor, actually the guy you saw sing for us ...
