Matthew Sweet talks about the album cover of 'Girlfriend'

October 20, 2014 · 0 Comments ·

Matthew Sweet's album cover for Girlfriend is one of my favorite album covers. I've always been curious about the choice of the photograph and who that girl is on the cover. In an interview with Spin on the 20th anniversary of Girlfriend, Matthew Sweet explains it all:

         "Record companies just want you to put a picture of yourself on the album cover. But there was something about her attitude that I liked. It's funny because she was only 13 or 14 years old in that photo. I had collected memorabilia of actresses from the '50s and '60s, like Kim Novak, Carol Baker, and Jean Seberg. It was hard to get Tuesday Weld to approve it, because she was a recluse and eccentric, but we finally got her approval. However, at the time, the album was called Nothing Lasts and the label got the idea that they should get a hold of Tuesday Weld and tell her that's what it was called. Which of course just made her feel like, "What do you mean 'nothing lasts' with my photo?" So I changed the title to Girlfriend at the eleventh hour, so we didn't have to mess with the Tuesday Weld photo. It was a better title for it because it was so much more positive, you know?"

It's a Runaway World// Fall music

September 17, 2014 · 0 Comments ·
Here is a collection of songs to listen to on fall days. An overcast, crisp fall day, like in Rushmore when Herman goes to Rosemary's house and she offers him baby carrots and they agree to go for a walk together. Rosemary's cheeks are always perfectly rosy like a Rococo painting.

This is a collage I made for design class. These words are taken from a poem from "Cold Mountain Poems" that I got for Christmas from my Aunt and Uncle and cousins last Christmas! It's a great collection of peoms, especially nice to read now that the weather is getting more chilly.

My Valuable Hunting Knife// Guided By Voices

July 27, 2014 · 0 Comments ·
Music vid for "My Valuable Hunting Knife" by Guided By Voices. I like this version of the song more than the version on Alien Lanes, which sounds a lot more clean and tweaked. This version in the video has a much slower tempo and really basic, shitty (nice) sounding drums. This version of the song is on the Tigerbomb EP.
