I’ve always been more jealous of Jeff Tweedy’s kids than I should be comfortable with, given that I’m an adult. But when you had a completely mundane upbringing and you see those guys at music festivals with all-access passes or hanging out in the studio with their friends to add vocals to Wilco’s song for the Spongebob Squarepants movie soundtrack, well, it’s hard not to feel a twinge.

If you go to Spencer Tweedy’s surprisingly well-crafted blog you can discover dozens more reasons to be jealous of a 13-year-old–he gets to hang out with Neil Young, for instance, and he’s spending the holidays in New Zealand while you’re freezing your ass off in the midwest wondering how you’re going to pay off your credit-card bills.
