He Emerges! Or, Concerning the Sufjan Sighting Near Brooklyn, NY

Yesterday while catching up on my music blog reading, I found out that Sufjan Stevens and My Brightest Diamond recently made a surprise appearance with the Brooklyn Philharmonic. Clogs and Bell Orchestre were already slated to play, but it was Soof's appearance that set the internets all aflutter. And so my heart followed! I wanted to set one of the pictures as my desktop background, but I had newly papered it with The Periodic Table of Typefaces. Plus I'm 26, not 16. The grown up alternative was to find an excuse to post these pictures on the blog.

I found my excuse tonight while trying to tame the wild jungle that has become my iTunes library. I had come across a collection of Sufjan rarities a while ago but never pushed the play button. It was perfect timing to rediscover these. My two favorites are "Borderline" and "Opie's Funeral Song". "Borderline" was on one of the CDs that accompanied the now defunct magazine Comes With A Smile, and "Opie" was on a 2006 Asthmatic Kitty compilation.
