I'll now take this opportunity to introduce myself. Formally, I'm Drew. I'm a friend and colleague of fellow J-school cellar dwellers Thomas and George. I'm looking forward to contributing by keeping worthwhile dialogue with those who share some of our same tastes. And hecklers.
Informally, I'm a jerk. I've assumed the traveling life with my current gig and don't have the time to obsess over the latest releases, e.p.'s, mp3's, and cee deez. I'm hoping to dispatch a bit from the road as I travel, reviewing some shows, reporting on different rock and roll towns and waxing stupid poetic about what John Cougar really means to America. That being said, I'm not going to be much of a hype machine.
Yesterday, I bought "Icky Thump" by the White Stripes. Honestly, I haven't listened enough to stamp a solid review upon it. So far, it seems right on target, sure to be another classic from the Stripes' canon.
The only thing I can conclude thus far is that Meg White has the best job in music. Perhaps the world.
