For two issues now Colin Meloy has written a sidebar in Rolling Stone Magazine. Here is this month's installment!

 

WHAT I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS

 

Colin Meloy

DECEMBERISTS FRONTMAN

 

What’s on your wish list this year?

 

A dehumidifier for my studio.

 

What are your favorite past gifts?

 

A piece of original art by (cartoonist) Tony Millionaire.

 

What gifts do you plan to give?

 

When I worked at a bookstore, everyone on my list got books- Dylan Thomas’ Under Milk Wood is essential reading. Now that I’m in a rock band, they still get books, with a Decemberists T-shirt thrown in.

 

How much will you spend?

 

I tend to think anything over fifty dollars is a little crass- except for one’s girlfriend, for which there is no limit.

 

Where do you shop?

 

I try to buy at local Portland (Oregon) shops as much as possible. Powell’s Books, Reading Frenzy and Jackpot Records are my favorites.

 

Do you ever buy more stuff for yourself?

 

A little bit here and there. I always end up buying left-handed presents for my girlfriend. Half the non-lady-stuff presents I buy for her end up in my possession anyway.

Oh wow, he likes Tony Millionaire! I have enough trouble finding friends who know about Tony Millionaire, but for one of my favorite musicians to like him...
