Not really in the way other people do - I don’t go back and watch my favorites any more, they’re not favorites like albums. It’s rare that I’ll see a movie more than once. I love The Texas Chainsaw Massacre enough to have seen it who knows how many times, and the restored print I caught recently was incredible. The Bride of Frankenstein is a huge favorite, the Universal Frankenstein too. Tod Browning’s Dracula. I love To the Devil A Daughter, this is not generally considered a great film but movies are as much about atmosphere as anything else for me. House of the Devil. The Innkeepers. No Place On Earth. The Baby. The giallo genre in general. Also, anything that is airing on the Lifetime Movie Network.

I wanna say a somewhat reluctant “yeah” because it’s not like I won’t be at Mountain Goats merch tables as soon as we’re back out on the road, and we will be back in a lot of these towns soon enough I figure. So, like, in Seattle, maybe tell the unautographed tMG stuff “next year, friend” and leave it at home: Seattle knows we’ll be back, the unautographed stuff will not be sad. San Francisco, Austin, New York - there’s just no hurry to get tMG stuff signed at the Wolf in White Van reading, everybody knows we’ll be back and I’ve been pretty rigorous about hanging around to sign stuff until the end of the evening for the past several years. Come unburdened by extra stuff you have to sit there holding, or worrying if it’s getting bent up in the backpack on the floor there. Oxford, MS, ok, never been there, if you’re writing from Oxford then bring the tapes and the t-shirts too, I will sign ‘em.
