I never thought they would get a divorce. This is a surprise. I always knew they would break up one day, but i never thought they would separate before they disbanded. Im still in shock. I've kinda felt over the past few years that Kim kept playing with Sonic Youth just to keep Thurston happy and not herself. She was doing it more for him than herself. I have a feeling that Kim broke up with Thurston and it wasn't Thurston that broke up with her. Thurston would never leave her, he just wants to see her happy. I could tell by the last KCRW interview with Thurston that he was really bummed out, i could tell something was up, and now i know what was wrong. When he talks about Beck bringing "Hope" to his demolished thoughts album, i could tell something was terribly wrong. That struck a chord with me and i knew something was up. This is the end of an era and it sucks. Im thinking about going to the South America shows now. I really want to go, since this could be their last.
