Largehearted Boy turned five years old today. After over 5500 posts, I am still enjoying sharing what I love with whoever reads the blog. Thank you for reading, and for often taking the time to color my musical and literary landscapes.
E-mails just went out to the winners of the "50 for 5" contest:
50 CDs: Page
4 graphic novels: Marie
Assorted CDs: James, Donovan, Pete, and Moses
The contest was fun, and I genuinely appreciated the kind words, but to celebrate this anniversary in the spirit of Largehearted Boy, I am also auctioning a copy of the limited edition Mountain Goats album, Come, Come to the Sunset Tree. All proceeds from the auction (after whatever fees eBay Giving takes of the final total) will go to Farm Sanctuary, a group that provides "rescue, education and advocacy for farm animals." Make a bid, and possibly win #202/1000 of this collection of home demos for the band's album, The Sunset Tree, complete with handmade cover.
