I recently re-read The Phantom Tollbooth (thanks, gabe!) – one of my old favorites. In one part, Milo finds himself in The Doldrums, a place where one ends up when not paying attention. I can’t help but think about how pleasant that place can be. I listen to this record in The Doldrums.
“Well, if you can’t laugh or think, what can you do?” asked Milo.
“Anything as long as it’s nothing, and everything as long as it isn’t anything”
ps Frankie Broyles is the guitarist from Deerhunter. This is his solo project.
