1. A great, troubled writer who's broken, honest voice makes his music so much more endearing.
2. Founder of Saddle Creek and father of that pantheon.
3. A really, really pretty androgynous guy. :-P
I believe that lovers should be tied together// and thrown into the ocean in the worst of weather// left there to drown, left there to drown in their innocence-Conor Oberst

A man who makes depression sound extremely appealing. He is just that amazing with words.
I have a friend who's mostly made of pain. He wakes up, drives to work, and straight back home again.

A beautiful man, you have to admit, but a perfectly normal guy with lots of talent. writes very poetic lyrics. who knows if he means it; they're meaningful though, to some, and other hate it, and yet others try to be emo over it. in multiple bands, one being bright eyes.
"But you but you, you write such pretty words. But life's no storybook! Loves an excuse to get hurt, and to hurt. Do you like to hurt? I do! I do! Then hurt me."

an amazing songsmith whose vanity walks hand in hand with his tortured sense of existence in order to garner undying love from little girls in skull and crossbone socks.
