Country Living decided to showcase Neko Case’s (The New Pornographers, Solo) colonial-era Vermont farmhouse. (Vermont is made entirely of farms and maple syrup, and cows outnumber large mountain cats 1,000,000,000 to 1.) And when I say Vermont, I don’t mean like an area within 30 miles of public transit. I mean nestled in between Canada and New Hampshire. Zombie-proof.
And let’s just give a big woooowieee to this adorable little house-in-the-hills she owns!
The musician characterizes her decorative mash-up as “a combination of science classroom, hunting lodge, and Art Nouveau battleship.” // Country Living
Is this a trend? Indie musicians moving to liberal northeastern farms. I hope the NYTimes covers it soon.
All I know is that her liberal attitude towards abortion is perfect for fetus-hating, gay-loving Vermont.
“I should have been an abortion,” Case says, with her customary frankness. “The only reason I wasn’t was that my father was a Christian.” Air quotes didn’t quite land on that proper noun, but they hovered close by. He was also a heavy drinker, she says, and used drugs, and “he hated his life. And he reminded us of that every day.” // NYTimes
