I just bought the C&I EP.  What is this track all about???

aMillionDreams

it's an answering machine message from Johnny Quaid (ex-MMJ guitar slinger) to Jim.  It's basically a collection of inside jokes, I'm not sure why Jim included it on the album though.

why does he act like he isn't in the band??  Wasn't he still in it during that time?  Also, is he talking about his barn?

aMillionDreams

the barn is the Above teh Cadilac Studios where they did their recording before the latest album.  He is taking some time off from touring but he is still in the band at this point.  If you listen to it a couple times you'll start to realize what the hell he's talking about if you're interested.

Actually, I don't know if I'm wrong, but it almost sounds like a voicemail to Jim from Jim. Like he left it for himself as a joke. Thus, the beginning jokery. I don't know, but it makes a little bit more (kind of) sense that way.

Hmmm, I'm pretty sure it was left from Johnny.  But they're cousins, so perhaps their vocal fold capacity is similar?

I always thought of it as a kind of marker of where things were at at the time.  Which is basically like any recording is, really.

But we don't mind discussing questions like this. We like it. Maybe Nikkogino has googled it and wants another perspective.

(ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.  I googled Nap Dyn because I thought it might be a really cool Welsh or Gaelic phrase.

But noooo.  It's Napoleon Dynamite.  That's hilarious.)

Hahaha this is a great post to stumble on 16 years later.  Young Nikkogino trying to discover the band and getting blasted for asking on here what this track was about, instead of googling.  Flash forward to today and I am listening to C&I, and think to myself "I forgot what this song was about.  I should Google it."  I Google "my morning jacket it's been a great 3 or 4 years" and what do I find but this here post is the first result.  At the time I was a mere annoyance to @nap dyn mofo, but history has redeemed my efforts, as I have provided a key resource for the future's children to learn about the jacket.

This is literally a forum for My Morning Jacket fans.  This is the perfect place to discuss an obscure track by the band.
