I found this clip through my friend Michelle a couple of years ago–Sufjan Stevens playing on a roof in Cincinnati, a city with an excellent heart where I’d love to live someday.

Shot by Vincent Moon, the video is part of La Blogotheque–start poking around this site and you’re done for the evening. I’ve watched so many of these clips and this one of Sufjan covering the Innocence Mission’s Lakes of Canada is still my favorite.

I drove through my old college campus last week and easily became everybody reading on the lawn, all the girls running the loop, all the boys with bedheads playing ultimate frisbee. Even though when I was a student there I never, ever did any of these things. Man, nostalgia, even if it’s a fake-out, comes easy.
