A Tweedy/Offerman Jam

Like jelly, not like hard rock.


Apologies, Muleteers, as I’m a day late with your Sunday Donkey Thoughts. I had to travel all day yesterday, so I hope you can handle an anomalous Monday post.

Here I am at Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival playing a song that I wrote with my dear pal Jeff Tweedy. I have certainly had jobs in my life that made me feel like saying TGIF, but eventually I begin to aspire to life choices that would allow me to get paid to do what I enjoy in one way or another, so that one day I might achieve my dream of saying “Thank God It’s Monday.”

Thanks to the great Jill Schwartzman for shooting this iPhone video, thereby saving me the task of generating content on a travel morning. She has edited all 5 of my books and both of Jeff’s books, so we’re both pretty enamored of her and her perspicacity.

I’m also powerfully grateful to Jeff and his family, and Wilco for encouraging a more thoughtful world in which we might be conscientious to our neighbors near and far and, always, endeavor to hug before punch.

Have a beautiful day,


Usually these Sunday videos end up behind a paywall but today why don’t we all enjoy this clumsy tale? If you care to subscribe on the patron level, you’ll get plenty more of this medium fare. Otherwise, the print versions are free. Please and thank you.

Please leave your questions in the comments, and let me know from where you’re corresponding. Also, if you’re not already onboard, I highly recommend the Substack channel from Jeff Tweedy, Starship Casual. xoxo
