You are every bit as awesome and hilarious as I imagined. Thank you for encouraging the heck out of my imagination. :)

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know that your music gave me immense strength at a time when I was stuck in a really awful cycle of self-loathing. Three years ago I drove alone to Asheville to see you play, and it was one of the most liberating, emotional experiences of my life. At the end of it, and at the risk of projecting my insecurities and being a super weird fan, I think I told you that you gave me hope that one day I'd figure out what I was supposed to do with my life. You reassured me that I would be fine and not to worry (because what else do you say to that?) and it really, really meant a lot to me. So thank you. The things you make mean a whole lot to me.

As for a question: Do you have another trip to Haiti planned? What experience stuck with you most from your most recent trip?

Cable TV got this off to a great start. Used to be that along with your single local newspaper, you also only had about 3 or 4 channels to choose from. You took what you could get. Now, you can sit around and watch Fox News for 24 hours straight if you wanted to, and never hear a single word that doesn't match your ideals. I don't think the problem is so much that there are too many sources, just that there aren't enough of them that try to be neutral in any capacity.

And now that I'm done hyperventilating...

That is incredible! I think it's really amazing that you've made it a point to be of service to the world as part of your work as a musician. Keep being amazing, lady.
