“At its core, music journalism is just people pretending to write about a band in order to write about themselves so people pretending to read about bands can read about themselves.”
On the music PR advice front, the article also says “‘A band put out a record’ is not a story.”
Now, I’m not a music journalist, but I will tell you a story to get you to see this band who put out a record and is playing a show.
Below are photos from 2007. That was my boyfriend at the time, Morgan.
Morgan was on TV
and in a band.
People loved that band. I love that band. They played a few years ago at Pianos and that night I apologised for writing lots of mean things about him in the past. The thing is, when the people you love, leave you, it’s easiest to lash out and make yerself hate ’em than to deal with being sad and feeling alone.
I don’t blog bitchy bad things about dudes anymore. And I can proudly admit that I will always love Morgan as a too talented dude who will forever be way cooler than I will ever be.
This is a song that Morgan produced and the music video for it that he also produced.
You’re gonna like the part where it goes ‘C’mon Honeeeeyyyy’ and the guitary deer-neer-neer bits.
And while you’re at it and instagramming the shit out of all the shows you’re seeing, stop by the IMPOSSIBLE x The Culture of Me‘s CMJ Artist Lounge in SoHo to get those photos printed, like IRL, and say hi to Jeff Meltz for me cuz I’m in LA rn.

Marissa’s left me for LA. I’m so lonesome I could cry.
I’m just going to sit here and look at photos of us together. Having fun together.
In New York City.
At the Boom Boom Room.
Maybe now I’ll go through my Netflix instant play queue and watch all the videos she’s played on my account.
Just to feel closer to her.
Ease the pain.
Tomorrow I’ll go to the department store. Ask for a sample of Tom Ford’s Black Orchid.
Spray it into my blankie.
And smother myself in her scent.
Launched with an art exhibit by Craig Costello at 18 Wooster – Spray Paint the Walls.
With Wendy Lam [nitrolicious.com], recently connected with her again in NYC for the first time in years.
Known this little miss for over a decade! Looking like a cutie pie in her American Apparel wool cape.
Susie G with her new 21 Jump Street bob haircut and friend, Clay Murphy.
I miss wearing these sequined shorts. Always accessorize with psychosis.
Lucky number 3.
Adorable baby girl. Have been noticing a lot of parents in the art crowd bringing their kids along. Coolest toddlers ever.
Band of beer.
CREEP killing it with their performance. Moody and enchanting within the painted space.
Lauren Dillard of CREEP. Skeleton leggings? Yes!
Kevin Leong [Fold Your Paper] and his baby, Change the Pomeranian. She was fresh out from the groomers. Can’t handle the cute.
According to Susie G, we had infiltrated Babe Fort Knox that evening. Mmhmm.

Susie G, Marissa, and I at the afterparty for NYFFF.
Marissa looking pretty in pink paillettes.
In love with these metallic opaque tights. They’re less shimmer, more slick sheen off camera.
Susie G’s skin is like porcelain. Oh my.
These ladies make my nights.
I remember watching a Carmen Electra strip-tease exercise video where she emphasises the importance of a finger in the mouth. POINT TAKEN.

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child
but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
For now we see through a glass, darkly
but then face to face…

Person pictured on the left must always keep their eyes blissfully closed.
Endless champagne to aid the directive.

Ms. Yvonne Kai had invited me along to the PRO-Keds Spring/Summer 2011 collection preview at Spur Tree Lounge in the Lower East Side. Now if you want to attend an event where men greatly outnumber the women, go to a sneaker showcase. Not complaining.
Event hosted by Carrie Koscal, PR from The Foundation.
Complimentary Jamaican fare: Red Stripe beer, jerk chicken wings and mini beef patties.
Yvonne spotted a fly subway rider who ended up at the same event.
Suede was a hit.
Vanessa Diaz [rawthentix.com] and Yvonne with their picks.
This grey leather one was my fave.
Mine, Nessa and Yvonne’s rings.
