Okay, like I've never done anything like this before and I'm totally shy, so be gentle, okay? Cool!
Well, i'm 22 and from St. Louis (well, University City to be exact--Nelly and Murphy Lee, whaat????). You know, I hang out a lot at Vintage Vinyl and the Loop and buy a lot of records (vinyl is the only way to go guys!). I listen to a lot of old stuff yet new stuff too. I like a lot of No Wave bands like the Cortortions, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, DNA, Mars, etc. I also like a lot of newer stuff like Erase Errata, Lightning Bolt, Glass Candy & The Shattered Theatre (man, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs suck!), etc. I'd be totally lying too if I didn't admit to Sonic Youth still being my favorite band for almost 10 years. I even got to hang out with them backstage at the Metro in Chicago once!!! (no shit!) It was so boss guys! Hey, did any of you guys catch Le Tigre on Carson Daly last week?!?
Well, unlike a lot of you guys, I'm not in art school or anything. Man, i'm pretty fucking uncreative, but I'll still go out on a limb and give you guys what i've got. Here's a haiku I wrote in 8th grade:
The duck makes it's call:
Quack quack quack quack quack quack quack
quack quack quack quack quack
I know it's not good but man, it got some laughs! I really enjoy laughs. And laughing. I really enjoy sketch comedy shows like the State, and Upright Citizens Brigade, and Kids In The Hall. And I totally LOVE Wes Anderson movies. Bottle Rocket? Rushmore? The Royal Tenenbaums? Sometimes I wish I was Jason Schwartzman!
Ok, well, I don't know what else to say. If you guys like me, that's cool, but I'll survive if not. Anyway, keep rockin' the vinyl, wearin' the Chucks, and doing what you do!
