UPDATE! A post on Kitty Pryde's Facebook from September 6 reads: "just finished my christmas song for sufjan stevens....................(:" Holy. Shit.
Sufjan Stevens got Tumblr! Christmas has come early! For him at least: In the past 24 hours, his Tumblr was first named "CHRISTMAS IS COMING!", then titled "ADVENT OF THE APOCALYPSE!" It's heartening to see that Sufjan is as prone to a good .gif as any other citizen of the internet: He's currently posted one from the movie Silent Night, Deadly Night (which sounds amazing and appalling in equal measure), then a neurotic eyeball that could have been plucked from a corner of the Age of Adz tour stage set, followed by a .gif from the movie Black Christmas.
Sufjan, you'll remember, is no stranger to Christmas music. Are these posts an indication that we can expect a new Christmas album from him this year? When asked, Sufjan's label, Asthmatic Kitty, offered no information, but let's hope so. That Silent Night, Deadly Night clip of Santa breaking and entering-- with malicious intent!-- is just the stuff for a "John Wayne Gacy Jr."-type yarn.
Watch the pretty much amazing trailer for Silent Night, Deadly Night below. (It's a tad NSFW.)
