    Here is a small plethora of comments on some of your recent shows. Concerning fixies, I am living in Paris and a fix is next to impossible to find and bike laws require two breaks. Cocaine Habit by Old Crow Medicine Show is an amazing song. Oh and a bunch of my friends in back in VA have a band called wolf gang. I love the variety. It all makes me happy.

    Hey guys… a couple comments on the show:

    - Of Montreal is from Georgia, despite the Montreal name. However, you are correct that Canadians make great music. If you’ve never heard the CBC Radio 3 podcast, do yourself a favour and check it out. All Canadian indie stuff… it’s terrific.
    - damn… I had another comment and now I forget it. Oh well… thanks for the show.

    Hello there Chaps

    I am from Johannesburg, South Africa – so your show has reached the dark continent… Just wanted to say I enjoy your podcast, I have just recently started listening to podcasts and have been asking myself ever since “What the hell have I been doing with my time!!!” Great opportunity to hear some music off the beaten track…..Of Montreal….crackles with orginality, really enjoyed that one. Keep flying the flag of non-mainstream creative music – I will spread the news down south.

    PS What is your view on existentialism and how it relates to modern music- check out I will accept at least a 30000 word essay written in the third person – by Monday…..:-)

    “Existentialism, Postmodernism and Indie Music”
    a posted comment, of the abstract of an essay on wikipedia by Mr. Daniel J. Siden esq. BSME, MA, DIC

    To begin discussing existentialism in indie music, we must first normalize our lexicon to truly generate an absolute and controlled relation to the subject matter.

    Existentialism is defined as a philosophy stemming from Heidegger, Jaspers, Marcel, and Sartre, and sits directly opposed to rationalism and empiricism. It is a philosophy that emphasizes the uniqueness and isolation of the individual experience in a hostile or indifferent universe, regards human existence as unexplainable and stresses freedom of choice and responsibility from the consequences of one’s acts.

    Existentialism within the indie rock music scene finds it’s initial roots within the sub genre of “shoegaze” music and the descendent “Nugaze” music, a genre considered by many to have been established given establishment through the music of Brian Jonestown Massacre, and Bethany Curve, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. And that’s just from the B section of the alphabet.

    This essay sets out to prove the close correlation between Existentialism, post modernism and the indie rock music scene.
