I enjoy and appreciate your work very much, and unlike many of my friends, I do not leave the room when you are played. However, you are not the most soothing music to listen to on a day like today, when my mind is jangled by the state of the world. While "Execration for to Accept to Acknowledge" is one of my favorite albums of yours, 40 minutes of its shocking and frightening guitar screechings is not what I need right now.
Please forgive me, and forgive my iPod.
P.S. That goes double for you, John Darnielle, you gloomy fuck.
