Mark Eitzel couldn't sleep the other night, so he decided to write his own open letter to Miley Cyrus. As you might imagine, it's pretty fantastic. Some choice excerpts are posted below, but go read the full thing here.

"I’m sure you never heard of me and that is understandable. My music tends toward the melodramatic and sad. Its a lot of heavy crap. If I could I would rail like King Lear

People like me pass off a lack of success as the price for making ART. We live our lives rolling in the mud of ‘self expression’ instead of getting on with shining the brightest light into the world. This is how we fail and it hurts. Unfortunately what I saw in your spot was more like the flash in the sky in that painting by Turner: The Field of Waterloo. You didn’t turn the world on with a smile - so to speak - you just hung above the dead and dying like some eerie apocalyptic firework.

Disturbing and familiar this really fucks with people of my generation. I can’t put my finger on it but it has something to do with valuing belief. You opened your mouth and nothing came out but dust. Scary. You let us see that having nothing to say is soul destroying as heroin."
