We have finally let the recording of our boozy evening with Blake Schwarzenbach back in February 2009 out of the archives. Listen to Blake wax poetic about the perils of easy language, the challenges of teaching, the folly of fanboys, and yes… Jawbreaker, Jets to Brazil, and Thorns of Life.

(On a side note, the above photo is the only known image from that night. That said, we all have memories of a very strong flash blinding us again and again, with the photographer promising to post the photos to Flickr. To date none have appeared. You know who you are… but do you know where the photos are? We’d like to!)
