It is hard to write about, something.. well something that has touched so many hearts inside the Scope office, I will try. Bon Iver has earned his right to be on that pedestal of Scope love, the pedestal that says this man can do anything he wants and we will still love him. It is hard to forgive Justin Vernon for wanting to take a break, but we will inevitably forgive him, as long as he comes back to us. I think we all will remember those dark cold nights, watching the snow, pretending we lived out in a cabin. I think we will all remember the chills we got, because we were exhausted and he bared his soul for us and for even just a brief moment, we understood.
Tonight I want you to pull up your covers, put on those old clunky headphones and let this man take you somewhere magical, a place where you feel so different, but it always feels like home. Let the music take you to the cabin that Justin Vernon recorded For Emma, go outside on the front porch and there in the snow he will play for you, and you will get those same chills you got when you heard it for the first time.
Goodnight Bon Iver come home soon.
