Hello cruel world! I’ve been fixated on music as long as I can recall. Aside from my hometown heroes Prince and Paul Westerberg, my heart always beats a little faster when listening to The Clash or Ty Segall... or maybe that's just my inadvisable caffeine intake. I’ve written for Entertainment Weekly, Vulture, Yahoo and even SparkNotes, so watch out for needless literary allusions. My dream dinner would be with Madonna, because I assume she would let me finish everything she didn't eat.
