Brian Fallon // “Great Expectations”
With Dan Andriano doing backing vocals, along with Chuck Ragan and Dave Hause. They throw in a verse from an Alkaline Trio song towards the end, which is how i’m justifying uploading this song here ;P
This is my jam. MY JAM.
Hey John, what is your reaction to the news that the Riverside district has chosen to ban TFIOS from middle school libraries on the grounds that it deals with mortality and sex? I remember your reactions to similar situations concerning your books have been pretty animated and wondered what you thought?
Great Lakes // Great Escapes Answer:
I guess I am both happy and sad.
I am happy because apparently young people in Riverside, California will never witness or experience mortality since they won’t be reading my book, which is great for them.
But I am also sad because I was really hoping I would be able to introduce the idea that human beings die to the children of Riverside, California and thereby crush their dreams of immortality.
