kind musicians who write stories
There is a guy named Paulo that asked a number of his favorite artists to write a story for him on a notecard last year. Most of them complied and the results are sometimes fantastic. Sufjan's story is by far the best (of course). It amazes me that someone can come up with stories on the spot about an ace boy archer and a terrible storm that affected a dutch doormouse and a nearsighted animal lover.
There's quite a few other stories from the Arcade Fire, Ben Folds, Andrew Bird, the Polyphonice Spree (yes, all of them), Suburban Kids with Biblical Names, Explosions in the Sky, Clem Snide, Wayne Coyne (of the Flaming Lips), and many more. This is a great project, definitely take a look at these.
To look at all of them go here. To look at any of the individual artists click one of the links above.
