It appears that Sufjan doesn't want to talk about anything interesting like religion or politics tonight. Instead I'm constricted to talking about art and history. Hmmm. Anyway, in way of reasearch I stumbled across a Sufjan interview in Filter magazine online. Thanks to All Good Naysayers for this:
You can download a mini copy of Filter magazine with Sufjan on the cover and an interview with him. It' free and worth a read. You can download the PDF here.
