Known in song and story

I'm really liking this:

Joy J. Henry is writing a series of connected short stories to accompany songs by The Mountain Goats.

First up is "Quetzalcoatl Eats Plums", and not only can you read the story, but also listen to the song. Mountain Goats songs are already so literary to begin with that I'm surprised nobody has done this before. Looking forward to many more - how about "Going to Queens" or "Warm Lonely Planet"?
