were any of you around when ryan adams had a tumblr? he named it foggy. he posted pictures of himself and of his poetry and videos of him walking around new york talking about jeans and coffee and life. it was so soothing to watch him just like, exist for us all to watch, and then he deleted it and everyone was sad, but in 2008 that was like…the REASON i joined tumblr. and i’d been a fan of him before but i didn’t realize how much i really liked ryan adams the Person and not just his music. everyday he updated his tumblr and he was quirky and inspiring and funny and interesting and we all fell in love with him, everyone who used tumblr around that time, and then he left and tumblr has never really been the same, but ANYWAY
i saw him in concert for the first time tonight and i just spent the entire time clutching my face because all the weird little asides between songs and his funny stories and his self-deprecating sense of humor reminded me why i love him but like, REALLY! LOVE!!! huge love! i just want him to be happy! and he seems happy!
he’s also, you know, insanely talented and good at his job and put on one of the best shows i’ve seen in a long time. everyone cried during come pick me up. that ryan adams that we all fell in love with went away for a little bit and now he’s married to mandy moore and he’s making great music and he’s hERE. RYAN ADAMS EXISTS AND I’M SO HAPPY ABOUT IT.
