Indecipherable autograph on Sun Kil Moon CD

Friend BTM, over at the worstweblogintheworld, recently posted about some new music that he’s been enjoying.  Among the titles was April, by Mark Kozelek’s band Sun Kil Moon.  I hadn’t heard it much since I bought it, so I pulled it off the shelf.

I’d purchased the album from the artist’s website, as I like to do when possible, and opted for the two-disc version signed by Mr. Kozelek.  When I opened the package this afternoon, I stood looking at the signature.  For a long time.  To me, it looked like he had written:


“1505, y’all!”  I say that all the time when I mean to say my name.

What the heck does this say?  Any takers?  HELP.  I just hope that the translation isn’t so obvious that after hearing it I will feel like a big weenie.

    My guess would be that 1505 is the number of the signed edition.
    And below is a really poor “MK”. Note the two legs of the “k” don’t really connect.
    When he played at The Nick a few years ago, I asked him to sign my copy of Ghosts of the Great Highway. He asked my name. I said “Brent.”
    He signed the record:


    So based on the evidence, I’d rate Mr. Kozelek among the worst with a Sharpie.

    Well, if my copy is #1,505, then I wouldn’t consider it very “limited!” as was advertised.

    Thanks, Brent.
