Transcendental Youth?

April 12, 2012 12:12PM | Transcendental Youth?
For some reason, I was under the (obviously mistaken) impression that the new album was coming out in April (2012). I dunno -- maybe I dreamed a Mountain Goats press conference or something, but whatever. The result of this mistaken impression is that I've been anticipating its release much more intensely than I have any business doing. Seriously, up to the point where I sometimes wake up with butterflies in my stomach and don't know why. (OK, so the butterflies are most likely due to other, way more important and stressful things that happen to be going on in my life right now, but just for the sake of winding up this already-way-too-long parenthetical, let's just say that they are all about the impending (or maybe not so impending as it turns out) release of Transcendental Youth.)

So, when IS it coming out? Does anyone know?

No idea, I think JD mentioned that they recored it in Feburary. I'm hoping for late summer/early fall myself but would welcome anytime sooner!

you mean the hard copy, as opposed to the download JD sent out?

actually this album got canned because WQXR live-streamed it the night of the concert and someone recorded it over the internet and posted a torrent of it so JD destroyed the masters

Well, it sure is a good thing that some of us got the download JD sent out, then

No laughing matter, I'm afraid. JD destroyed the masters.

i thought it was the exclusion of women that destroyed the masters.

For anyone interested in a real answer, rather than people being dicks for no reason:

RT @leez34 @mountain_goats When does Transcendental Youth come out? I can't find the info anywhere.

RT @mountain_goats @leez34 not even done recording yet, no release date set, sometime later this year

To be fair, the first response more or less answered the question. (although thanks for confirming! that's good to know)
April 13, 2012 09:21PM | Re: Transcendental Youth?
Hey man I wasn't being a Dick about it. There isn't any info about this yet.

People on this forum will always make wacky jokes when they don't know the answer to something. If you want to see people actually being dicks, look for a thread where someone asks a question that is awkwardly inappropriate. There's one that comes to mind, but in the intrest of not being a dick, I won't search it out or link it here.

Totally off topic here, but is there anyone offended by the use of "dick" as an insult? Personally, I usually opt for the gender-neutral "asshole" instead, but I can see why people are okay about it because it doesn't really carry the same oppressive weight that something like "pussy" does.*
If any of you are penis-owners, just thought I'd ask.

*Not to equivalize genitals with gender, but insults like these are usually meant as gendered.
April 17, 2012 09:05AM | Re: Transcendental Youth?
I've honestly never thought about it, but I don't tend to use the term dick. When I don't like someone they're usually called jerk-face or jerk-ass, depending on if I'm in a G or PG situation.

my kid uses random words as curses.

he's called me these things with a commanding derogatory tone in the past week, usually after i tell him "no":

you doorknob!
you soda!
you soup can!
you taco bell!
you donut!
you candle!
you table!

he likes to add the qualifier "stinky" before these words, such as "you stinky soda!" if he's feeling extra mad.

he'll be three in may.

he's a stinky doorknob!

DON'T YOU FUCKING TALK ABOUT YOUR SON LIKE THAT, MIKE! UN BELIEVABLE. TOTAL CANDLE MOVE.



do you like robots?
April 17, 2012 02:09PM | Re: Transcendental Youth?
i have to get him when he's not around. it's the only time i can get him. he was smarter than me is two years ago.

usually, calling him a "stinky" name back results in a torrent, a stream, a cavalcade of random word profanity like you've never heard, punctuate with a tiny evil laugh, like what he said totally burned you. heh heh.

it's like a syd barrett song.
