“Live from Tex-ass”

Once again I’m late to the party, but I’ve been listening to Sufjan Stevens’ excellent `Come on feel the Illinoise <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illinois_%28album%29>`_, the second in his proposed series of 50 albums, one for each state. The album features an amazingly poignant ballad “John Wayne Gacy, Jr“ about the serial killer of the same name. Illlinoise is one of the most unique albums I’ve heard in quite a while.

Given the current political situation, I’d like to make a suggestion for a future Sufjan album: when you get to Texas, perhaps you can honor the G-W with another serial killer ballad. Just a thought.
