The 50 States: Idaho


So we continue our slow trundle across the plains, mountains, rivers, and streams of this great nation. We've put some controversy behind us (in my Hawaii post I mistakenly referred to a Dutch group as a German group, I don't really care but I made some people upset). We've gained some readers, and several other blogs have given us some great lovin' and fueled my fire for continuing this project. So without further ado: Idaho.

A girl I once knew was driving through the middle of nowhere Idaho with her parents during their spring break, family outing. A bullet came through the door and went into her leg and she almost died of blood loss. That's the only person I know that has ever been to Idaho.

Idaho, you were admitted as a state in 1890. It is still illegal to give someone from Idaho a box of candy weighing more than 50 lbs. Also, your contributions have been slight -- you have given us potatoes, Gutzon Borglum, Harmon Killebrew, Ezra Pound, and Picabo Street.

Never the less -- we love you, Idaho.
So next up will be Illinois. You can be certain that Sufjan will be represented, but if you have any other suggestions that I might miss -- feel free to chip into the comments on this post.

Do you know what that picture you're using for Idaho is of? I wonder if it's Mt. Regan, named after my Great, Great Grandfather.

It's actually Mt Idaho, but that's pretty kickass that you sort of inherited the name of a mountain.

...they have also contributed the great resort of SUN VALLEY... the most pompous resort ever-- where the more expensive the one-peice-snowsuit, the cooler you are. How dare you forget.

I would recommend "Oh Illinoise" by Casiotone for the Painfully Alone for your next post.

Love your blog, and thanks for the great music.

There's this weekly songwriting competition called Song Fight!, and one week the title for which artists were called to write music was "Moscow, Idaho." Here's the link. I did a song for it, being the Marcus Kellis track, and I wrote lyrics for another, being the Devotchka one. I've also uploaded that mentioned Divine Comedy track to my website. I happened to see the guy perform it the day after he wrote the track; he was opening for Ben Folds, who had stopped in Boise for a tour date.

I'm uh born and raised in Idaho, it bears mentioning. Anyway, cool post.
