Tiny Vipers (AKA Jesy Fortino) made a record last year called Hands Across the Void that was as hypnotic as it was gloomy. With just her acoustic guitar, Fortino didn't really strum or pluck in a traditional rhythmic manner, but instead took long pauses, leaving single notes hang in mid-air...the void, if you will. Though her songs are chilly, Fortino still has a way of pulling listeners in to her mystical and earthy world. When our own Karla Starr interviewed Fortino around that record's release, she said she was reading Murakami's Wild Sheep Chase and listening to the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band. So, Tiny Vipers, tell us what you're digging these days? Ginny "Can't be serious": It's a song i like.
Volcanoes: i really want to see an active volcano. i have a dream sometimes where capitol hill is a volcano and it erupts and everyone runs down toward the waterfront but no one makes it except a few people but then these ghosts ride in on clouds and cut them into little pieces. so they would have been better off with the lava because the ghosts are way meaner.
Obama: i am glad he won. really glad.
Mr.Driller: its my favorite video game
Trog: trog is the name of the troll that guards the food in our tour van ( i am on tour with damien jurado and his band mates jenna and eric) all the food we collect from each place we put in the back area of the back seat. but now there is alot and it is kind of gross. we get hungry and sort of reach back there and eat whatever we happen to grab. Trog is the troll that lives in there and we have to make sacrifices to him if we want good snacks.
mashed potato dispenser: in norway we stopped at the gas station and i really wanted a warm snack so i went inside and there was a mashed potato dispensing machine. everywhere should have those.
terminator movies 1 and 2: i love those movies. i wish i was a terminator.
giant robots: huge robots like gundam robots. ones that are bigger than seattle.
marfa lights: some people think that they are alien ships. i have never seen them. i just read about them or look at pictures. i want to go there and see them.
