A story, a story, my keyboard for a story…
There was a brief moment where I thought about doing some long write up about how absolutely deplorable and irresponsible it is for journalists******** to post what’s little more than click-bait claptrap in the guise of a legitimate news story….
To say that I am a member of the Steel For Brains appreciation society is an understatement.
I generally don’t read band interviews on account of my deep abiding suspicion that most music writers are kobolds with the Charisma of, like, 7 and most musicians are sub-Lou Reed narcissistic dullards who eat paste. Mind you, I spend inordinate amounts of time falling asleep to Masterpiece Mystery, my lap covered in corn chips, my phone open to twitter, so what the fuck do I know. Point being: I don’t read a lot of interviews past the the second paragraph.
But I love all the interviews and writing posted on/by Mr.For Brains. Because they are serious and thoughtful questions answered in a serious manner that shows that, whoops, I was probably being tremendously unfair to a great number of musicians (if not music writers). I could also talk about the compelling stuff written on this site regarding depression and suicide, but I’m trying to stick to being amusing. But rest assured, it’s compellingly written, with a sense of empathy I can only envy. I really couldn’t be more delighted that SFB is now a peer at Noisey. He’s a great writer. And he gave me a shout out in this post. SO MOTHERFUCKER GETS A REBLOG.
