Sufjan nod

That's great that Sufjan got a nomination. Of course putting him up against a veteran like Tom Waits isn't really fair, but I think Sufjan's best work is still to come. Seven Swans is one of those albums everyone should at least hear once from front to back. It is definately my favorite album of the year and saw LOTS of play around my house. Way to go Sufjan!!
