The album's title comes from an Alan Watts quote in his work On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are (1966), which was in turn a quotation from James Broughton's The Bard and the Harper (1965). Broughton also used the quote in his art film This Is It (1971).
It was released in 2008. The title of this album is taken from a quote by Alan Watts. This Is It and I Am It and You Are It and So Is That and He Is It and She Is It and It Is It and That Is That Q&A. Artwork Bella Foster.
Not well and not often, at least. That's what she says. I didn't learn of her insomnia for months after In Advance of the Broken Arm was released last February. But in retrospect, it made sense: When I first heard her music, I couldn't sleep either. In Advance opened with an eight-note guitar figure, cycled 32 times in half a minute- about eight and a half notes a second. A brutal, highly repetitive pop song ensued. Marnie shrieked and trembled. She was a cheerleader possessed. What I need now is a good feeling to let me know"- that's a promise. I'm hoping it's true/ I'm hoping for you, you, you"- that's a declaration. By the time the album reaches "The Devil Is in the Details", it's hard to imagine Stern as someone who quit her job to sweat over a portastudio in the middle of the night.

The only reason I cared is it's hard to be social and say, 'I'm a musician. Because people are then like, 'Oh really? What label are you on?'" Stern stopped going out after a while and began balancing nightly jam sessions and a 9-to-5 at an ad agency. With headphones piping in the clanging chords of her muted amp, Stern devoted her alone time to finding a distinct voice-one that tossed her candy-coated wail into a four-alarm fire of fleet-fingered, post-everything techniques.

She blames an Alan Watts essay but punters can blame her - until they hear it, that is. While her debut, In Advance of the Broken Arm, was filled with her now wildly celebrated guitar pyrotechnics inside a sprawling yet inarguably hooky pop song setting, this set goes off in a different direction entirely. Stern is accompanied here by the same crew that worked on her debut: über drummer Zach Hill and bassist and engineer John Reed Thompson . Believe it that this is not tape manipulated music, as it sounds very close to the thrilling musical acrobatics of Stern's live performances
