I am the BEST DATE EVER.
I can confirm that the above is true.
I'll put out this time I promise.
I'll see how the finances look then.
Also, your username is making me feel queasy.
Also: Joanna Newsom's voice is indeed horrible and grating until you reach a certain point at which it stops being an annoyance and becomes beautiful. I did a u-turn on Newsom after originally hating her voice and tweeness massively. I can understand why some people don't/won't get to that point.
Hearing Final Fantasy's cover of "Peach, Plum, Pear" and realising what an absolutely beautiful and perfect song it was. After that I got through the pain barrier of her voice through just enjoying the song writing. And then liking her became easy.
Some of the lyrics on Ys are amongst the most beautiful I have ever heard. I got a text from a friend yesterday that just said:
"Life is thundering blissful towards death in a stampede of fumbling green gentleness."
"Dumbstruck at the sweetness of being, till we don't be."
She is really, truly amazing and has made what I feel certain will be remembered as one of the best albums of our generation.
