4 more reasons to love Justin Vernon.

as if you needed any, right?

1. those spots on his Grammy tie were tiny pink elephants. (click the photo for larger image)

seen here

2. he named his Wisconsin house/studio after an X-Files reference. (April Base)

3. this. it's 24 minutes but well worth your time. i recommend going full-screen with this one.

4. and this, oh this. a song by Anais Mitchell, who wrote an entire folk opera based on the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Vernon is Orpheus and sings on several tracks, but this is hands-down my favorite, and the only successful "call & response" song i've ever heard (i mean, except for this, obviously)
