You Symbiotic, Patriotic, Slam Book Neck, Right?

I was perusing R.E.M.HQ and ran across this impressive project: Pop Songs 07-08. Matthew Perpetua decided a year and a half ago to write something about every single R.E.M. song that has appeared on an album (not including Accelerate.) He just finished up with, naturally, It's the End of the World As We Know It (and I Feel Fine) only to field an offer from a certain Mr. Stipe:

But lo and behold, a day after signing off, Matthew received a note that Michael was interested in answering questions from fans about the songs and lyrics.
Nice! You can read the latest from Michael here. Talk about a passion project. Congratulations on an amazing accomplishment. Perhaps a certain 2poppy feels inspiration to tackle Matthew Sweet's catalog.

Perhaps not.
