Mr. Merritt is appearing on BBC 6, like, pretty much as I type this. I'm not sure if the recording will be archived or not, but I will get back on it and let you know if I find anything out. I'm listening to him play "Seduced and Abandoned" on his uke right now, and it's lovely. I am befuddled as to why this wasn't part of the set list on the tour.
Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and The Magnetic Fields has been confirmed as part of a Floridian film festival. The times for its screening at Full Frame Festival in Durham have been confirmed as well.
In other film-related news, all you San Franciscans need to go buy tickets to see Mr. Merritt's score to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea right here, right now.
After giving it a think (thanks in part to frequent commenter Mr. Nick David), I think the fanboy gushes that are mentioned in the introductory paragraph to this blog are going to become more prominent in the coming days. It is my hope that this will generate some discussion amongst us diehard fans and keep the blog alive in the waning days of really active news/interviews/tour news/whatever. It'd be much appreciated if you lot pitched in some ideas of what you'd like to see and all that jazz. Much love to you all.
