Hey Dan,

I’m easily your biggest fan and I’m getting married in Philadelphia on June 23, 2012 at the Bellevue Hotel.   It would probably change my life if you’d play it (even for a few songs) and I think it would be a story for us all.  Any thoughts?

Regards,
Exxx

P.S. Rubies is still the best album of all time, but Kaputt is creeping up there.

subject Just a Quick Note…Wanted to thank you.

Important mainly because of the words in the message.

Dear Mr. Bejar:I wanted to thank you so much for making such amazing music . I teach mathematics as an adjunct in a few colleges in Honolulu. I have been in US since 1991, and I lived in Vancouver for a few years before that. I am learning so much about literature, art, and history from your music. I can use an example how I learned about Kara Walker. I mean the list goes on. I am taking my time with each one of your albums. I honestly have learned so much from you. I just wish I would have started sooner. I do admit I am not a well read man, but I go through a  learning journey with each one of your songs.I read your bio just a few minutes ago, and I tremendously enjoy your statement:”… my practice employs appropriation and recontextualisation towards familiar
objects, sites, and situations as a strategy to provoke historical amnesia and subvert ingrained
systems of belief. “

I am Turkish and Persian. I just wanted to give you a background to my name. Although it may be embarrassing that I am not very well read, I don’t have that biased background to compare your music or compare it to anyone else’s work. I just hear it for the first time as is…I love how I have to call friends (well real English professors) to understand the background to each and every one of your songs.

Take care sir. I hope this e-mail finds you smiling wherever you are…You inspire me.

I wanted to share one of my favorite parts of e.e. cumming poems:

“I’d rather learn from one bird how to sing than to teach ten thousand stars how not to dance.”

Sir…If you ever have the desire to play a show in Honolulu’s beautiful Hawaii Theater please let me know as I can assure you I have the connection to make it happen.

My warmest regards,
xxxx
