The only new thing is the Cat Stevens cover, but still cool.

Haven't laughed this hard in a long time... [31 Jul 2005|06:06am]

[ mood | chipper ]

Was anybody else listening to Sirius satellite radio's "free form" rock station around 3:30am est this morning?

They played Elliott's "Twilight" and then played Marvin Gaye's "Let Get It On" I laughed my arse off. Such strange songs to pair back to back. I was happy that they played Elliott though. :)

P.S. One week until what would have been his 36th birthday. :(

Sufjan Stevens [18 Jul 2005|06:05pm]

[ mood | tired ]

I picked up the new Sufjan Stevens album, Come on Feel the Illinoise, the other day. I really love it. I am wondering how many of you are Sufjan fans and how do you like the new album?

[09 Jul 2005|01:09am]

I'm not sure if this has been talked about or not, so sorry if it has.

My brother told me that Elliott used to like this girl singer named Nico?

well there is a cover of him doing "These days"-I don't know how to put the song on here (sorry :( maybe i could send it through aim my screen name is

i0wnn1rv4n4 if anyone wants it. or hasn't heard it.

or i reccomend you guys download it :), it's really good, and it seems like he would have written it
and it goes with his personality so well i think.

well tell me what you think of the song if you have heard it.

Honestly. If somebody started a community for people who like Elliott Smith and Conan O'Brien how many of you would join?

I would make that community if I knew how to make one. ^_^

[ mood | angry ]

boys really suck.
this kid that broke up with me twice for the same reason is calling me again and it's really fucking bothering me
he dumped me for his ex gf-and then did it again two months ago
and they are fighting at the moment
so he decides to call me out of nowhere.
any suggestions on what to say to this asshole?
i still like him. but i can't stand how he hurts me all the time
and it's hard for me to believe him when he says he likes me.
i just really want to get him off my back without making him angry at me.

anyways, i know this has nothing to do with elliott smith, although this community doesn't exaclty have to talk about him, but i'll mention song lyrics from one of his songs that i like anyways. :)

plainclothes man lyricsCollapse )

this is not my life

[28 May 2005|07:34pm]

[ mood | curious ]

I'm pretty sure Elliott knew he wouldn't have been alive for the final production of from a basement on the hill
and I knew he knew that he was so close to his inevitable suicide

but I find the entire album haunting and leaving very obvious clues to his death

mostly King's Crossing, The Last Hour and Little One
Little One maybe the most subtle and obvious at the same time

also...if you haven't noticed yet..I do believe that Elliott did a lot of Backmasking on Little One and Selena conanfan8763 said that she heard on little one him saying "i want death" or something when she played it backwards

which wouldn't suprise me because little one always gave me serious chills and I always found that in the backround there was this gibberish in the background that I could never understand what he was saying

and that is the obvious clue that there was backmasking going on

also Elliott always reminded people that "if something ever happened to him" to never fuck with King's Crossing with pro tools etc.

he said this reportidly more than once

so..besides me constantly regretting that I never bought FABOTH on vinyl when I was in Maryland so I could spin that fucker backwards at will because its harder to reverse audio on cds
another reason why vinyl still fucking rocks mroe than cds
and I think I'm going to buy it tonight online

but anyways
-if you have it on vinyl..spin King's Crossing and Little One backwards and tell me the results

button whore [28 May 2005|04:46pm]

hey all...i'm not being hypocritical or anything and going against what I've always said this community is about..I just wanted to see what the mod submission emails looked like...^_^ I'll take off the mod thing after the next person posts

[edit I just got on my old livejournal acount and posted a post
and it looks like this...YOU GET TO PUSH THESE BABIES MUAHAHAHA I might have to keep this mod thing up until the night is over just because I would love to click el bottones some more!!...I'm such a freak]

and don't worry...I will accept everything
regardless if it is the most rediculous post known to man..just to keep the spirit of the community alive
1 fond farewell -- this is not my life

2 topics (x-posted in elliottsmith) [28 May 2005|03:32pm]

have you ever found yourself listening one Elliott song for about 40 minutes on repeat without even noticing it
or noticed that the cd has been repeating for more than 2-3 times and you just totally didn't notice at all

thats what I love about Elliott..and other bands, Quasi, Joy Division, Pink Floyd..I could be listening for hours and never even notice
thats when you know you have found a great musical artist/band
when you can just sit there and let it disolve in your every day routines but still enjoy it in the back of your head

well a lot of the people (and some in this community) know I'm going psycho over money because
I am 40 dollars away from getting an iPod (unlike everyone else in my town who gets it complimenery to birth and would probably consider my cd player "analog")

well I guess my point for posting here is you get a free inscribing on the back when you buy it online

37 characters each line, two lines I think
I've been thinking either a quasi line or an Elliott line.

because "steal this and you will suffer me taking your soul from your body with my bare hands" was way too long

my first idea was from clementine "anything to pass the time keep that song out of your mind" but it didn't fit so the finalist line was

keep that song
out of your mind


anyways..come to think of it this seems more like a riot_coming post but I'll post it here as well just to get a 2nd opinion

give me some ideas!

Something interesting...and creepy...I don't know if it's me that hears this. [28 May 2005|08:10am]

[ mood | curious ]

I've read on Sweetaddy that Elliott told somebody that if anything happened to him that to not let "King's Crossing" be fooled with at all. I was thinking umm...this is weird. So I listened to it backwards (because my portable cd player has a rewind button) and I heard some pretty interesting things. I don't know if anybody else has done this, but please do if you get the chance. If you don't hear some stuff don't consider me a weirdo or get mad at me. I'm just wanting to know if it's only in my head.


I keep hearing different things though but I've heard one phrase everytime I have played it backwards...

Just check it out...and don't get mad at me.

[ mood | crushed ]

just wondering.

does anyone ever feel like crying after you either, read an article about Elliott, or listen to one of his songs?

i just read the spin article and it made me cry.
and sometimes when i listen to a certain song like maybe Twilight for example, i feel like crying.

Just wondering if anyone else feels like that or if i'm acting a little too sensitive towards his death?

i just hope i'm not the only one :-[

[ mood | crazy ]

Okay, me and one of my buddies from the Sweetaddy message boards were having a conversation about whores...we started being silly and this is what happened.

me: no cheap whores there though
him: Walked down and back, listened to an Elliott Smith mix I made to accompany the script.
him: No, all the whores down there were way out of my price range.
me: very expensive whores.
me: whores that only elliott could have bought
me: lol
me: that's so wrong of me to say
him: No no, we can only hope that Elliott tapped some nice ass in his lifetime.
him: He deserved it.
me: yes
me: he did
me: now i've got an image in my head...that i didn't really want right now
him: What, Elliott behind a girl, smacking her on the butt and shouting "Faster, faster! Ride 'er, mama!!!"?

It's Elliott related....so I felt a need to share.

high on factor 23...^_^ [12 May 2005|11:08pm]

[ mood | crazy ]

Somebody on Sweetaddy made this typo when they were asking about the song "St. Ides Heaven"...They typed "St. Ives Heaven" you know, like the lotion...^_^

Another member made a parody song about it...I've gotta post this.

everything is very bright
when i walk around with my lotion squeezed tight
with an open container from 7-11
in st. ives heaven

i've been out sun bathing in the neighborhood
and everybody can see my tan's no good
when i'm lying down between parked cars
i don't want no cancerous scars

high on factor 23
the sun is a bright light burining me

it'll rub around on anyone
but the sun won't come out for anyone
you know what brings me down
it's my pasty white skin illuminating this town
you can't get your lotion out of the can
turn it upside down

cos everyone is a bronzed pro
and they all got skin cancer from sun that they've known
and they all got to say what you should and shouldn't do
those idots only use factor 2

high on factor 23
the sun is a bright light burining me
it'll rub around on anyone
but the sun won't come out for anyone

That really made me laugh...^_^
