Liked Tumblarity, but now that it’s gone, I sort of miss it.

Nebraska Artist of the Decade: Conor Oberst
He helped bring the Omaha music scene into national prominence. He was called the next Bob Dylan. He sang with Bruce Springsteen. He performed as a band, as a solo artist and in a supergroup. He created his own record label. The bulk of Oberst’s work was in the ‘00s, starting with 2000’s “Fevers and Mirrors” by Bright Eyes and continuing with two solo records, one with Monsters of Folk and seven more Bright Eyes records (including one Christmas, one live and one of rarities). Those recordings made many best of lists, and songs that were placed in movies. “Cassadaga” won a Grammy for album art, and Oberst was named songwriter of the year by Rolling Stone in 2008. To put it simply: The ‘00s were all his.
is all I have to say.
Not really a resolution, more of a goal. Get a job. haha.
