Wow. I think you seriously misunderstand Phil's work. Phil, in NO way shape or form, is similar to Henry David Thoreau. Just listen to Through the Trees pt.2, because he literally states what Mount Eerie's music is about, if you're too dense to understand that from his other music.
Sorry to be a dick, I just see this shit all the time. Comparing Phil to Thoreau is massively simplifies Phil's work and it seems degrading.

Aside from that, holy shit I never even realized the reference.
For anyone interested, these were the guys who recorded the music for the show.
Someone had to offer his face for the frog. I doubted between Thoreau and some Norwegian chick. What/who would you have used? I do expect an answer.
And yes, you are an autist child who got way too concerned because some anon "doesn't get" his favourite musician. At least you gave your point and tried to be constructive.
THIS is The Microphones. Anyone who knows Moomin will agree.
