Conor oberst dating winona ryder
Thousands of young fans wanted to give the doe-eyed indie-folk heartthrob a hug; Winona Ryder even gave him a kiss. I saw a picture of him the other day in a bar—he had kind of a mod look and was wearing a handmade Bob Dylan pin—and was starstruck. We talked about Neutral Milk Hotel, whose , with members of the Elephant 6 collective.
That winter, Mogis lugged his eight-track reel-to-reel machine to the Oberst home and set up in the laundry room to capture Bright Eyes’ earliest recording.He claimed that he had never met her, and, after she had repeatedly refused to retract her statements publicly, Oberst and his legal team decided to file a libel suit seeking up to one million dollars in damages, which, if successful, his camp would donate to charities supporting the victims of violence against women.While his legal team has pointed to a number of inconsistencies in Faircloth’s story (Bright Eyes had not, in fact, played a show on that date in 2003, though Desaparecidos did a year earlier) as well as her social media history, questions of Oberst’s guilt and innocence were already being considered and answered online, well out of anyone’s control.Which is significant, because Oberst started out as a songwriter walled in by his own emotions and experiences, exhaling a lot of precious ruminations on the topic of himself. With him was Tim Kasher, frontman of fellow Omaha outfit Cursive and then a member of Bright Eyes’ touring band.
Sometimes the soul-baring came out in loping, tangled lines about gray skies and cigarettes, and sometimes it burst forth in quivering, edge-of-a-breakdown shouts. Six years Oberst’s senior, Kasher fielded a lot of the questions while Oberst shifted uncomfortably in his seat.But Bright Eyes’ latest album, an orchestral-country passion play for the 21st-century decline, is the heaviest thing he’s ever done.
