Under Construction.

Does anyone read this thing regularly?

Well, it's going on hiatus until I can redesign and rethink. Needless to say, there haven't been many posts recently. Not to worry, though, because I still have a fuck ton of shit to say and complain about, but I'm just searching for the right context and chasm in which to throw my thoughts. Please stay tuned.

Also, I've had more than one friend tell me to post the shit I write for the Chicago Reader on my blog because they always forget to pick up a Reader, or can't find the time, or live in Cincinnati, or whatever. Aside from being a sad yet perfect microcosm for the dying newspaper industry, the request is valid because I'm always saying, "Hey, pick up the Reader, I wrote up so and so. They're kind of [ridiculous amalgamated genre tag] with some [obscure late 80s/early 90s hardcore band] influence mixed with [random, inexplicable drug reference].

So, here are links to some bands I've recently written up.

Sleepy Sun
Fang Island
Damien Jurado
Them Crooked Vultures
Black Breath
Los Campesinos!

I'll now leave you with the trailer for one of the most unintentionally terrifying films of all time, costarring the venerable 80s icon Jeffrey Jones and Marty McFly's mom.

The fact that Howard the Duck isn't fully revealed in the trailer makes it all the more frightening.

Whoa dude... these reviews are luscious. I wish I had your command of idiomatic American English. I would also like it if you re-published these on your blog -- but to keep us coming back, concluded each one with a glib summary, too sassy for the Chicago Reader. So for Los Campesinos!, for example: "I have a hard time believing this isn't even more annoying in Wales."

You are the living end, Magda.

I'm not going to make a comment about this blog post being a cop out for being too lazy to actually write something that was worth my time to read. It's 12:30 in the morning and I have to wake up in five hours.
