Dirty Projectors and Joanna Newsom

This is part two in a new series that I invented when I found this second tattoo after posting a related one yesterday.

The owner of this colorful red and blue and bird-filled tattoo writes:

"This is my Dave Longstreth/Joanna Newsom tribute tattoo. I admire Joanna for her lyrics, and Dave for his music; they are my two biggest musical influences. The red and blue background is from the album, "Bitte Orca" by Dave's band, Dirty Projectors. The red and the blue intermingling represents how lyrics and music are both needed to intertwine in order to make a song. The two brown finches are reoccurring birds that Dave uses in most of his albums, and the canary and sparrow are from Joanna Newsom's albums "The Milk-Eyed Mender" and "Ys", respectively. The finches also represent my little sisters, as they're my little songbirds, and the canary, my mother, while the sparrow is my father. I'm very happy with it. Done by Jimmy at The Parlour Tattoo in Eugene, OR."

So, BV has a tattoo dept. now.

So Hipsters have finally taken all the toughness of having a tattoo.

Tattoos used to make you an outsider to society, now if you don't have one you are more rebellious than your peers.

If dude is such a Projectors fanatic he should know Longstreth was using the red/blue circles long before Bitte Orca.

Posted by Anonymous | August 23, 2012 2:11 PM

Also, "The two brown finches are reoccurring birds that Dave uses in most of his albums"—I know that Longstreth writes a lot of songs about finches, but dude, get some sentence construction skills. Do the finches help him produce? Are they ground up in the vinyl?

Finally, why does some asshat always have to claim that everything is photoshopped?

If I had to walk around with logos from albums I loved 15 years ago (I'm assuming this dude is about 15 years younger than me), I'd want to kill myself. There should be a law that no one under 50 can get a tattoo. The future is going to be nothing more than aging idiots with their aging idiotic tattoos.
