Elliott Smith has been dead for five years today...

and it sucks. Quick five years too. Anyway, dude is probably my favorite musician and certainly made my favorite album of all time (Either/Or).

When I get home from work I'll upload his albums for those that don't have them or care to listen.

He was so sad. Between the bars was genius and his work overall was great. I always enjoy Everything Means Nothing to Me the "Either Or" album and anything I can play of his on the guitar.
