Reasoning with Madness
"This is a barbaric yawp, and it will be sounded over the roofs of the world."
One year ago I covered Rock on the Range for the first time. For KFLY. This year, I headed back to Columbus, OH for their tenth anniversary to cover it again. This time for RadioContraband. Great to see Chili Peppers (for the 1st time), Deftones, Megadeth, Rob Zombie, Lamb of God, Ghost, Clutch, At the Drive In, Pennywise, The Sword...and so many more. Here's a brief assortment of pictures from the weekend...
I've been hinting at this for about a week now and I think it's time to spill the beans.
I'm moving to Portland, June 13th.
I was approached a few weeks ago for an "opportunity" which I could simply not refuse. Last week, I accepted a full-time position at Alpha Broadcasting. I can't say much more here, but I am pretty excited.
What I will say is that it gets me back into a newsroom and will challenge, grow and push my journalism career into a whole new direction. This is the next level activity that I have been looking forward to for some time now.
Even more exciting, I can maintain my role at RadioContraband (which was actually encouraged by my future employer). And in case you're wondering, no, my lady and I are not breaking up over this. She is going to stay back, finish grad school at UO this year and join me hopefully sooner than later.
To the ones who knew already, thank you for all the encouragement and support. And your silence. Big shout out to Bill Lundun, Kellen Brent Pierce, Tobby Lugo, Shannon Sundberg and my parents. And of course, my super sexy, super rad girlfriend Kea Cannon.
It's Serious Now.
Some nights I really wish Jimi Hendrix was still alive.
He would be kicking it with Clapton, Berry and Richards and the rest of the elders, still laughing and smoking, guitar always nearby...always ready to just...jam. I imagine he would still be dropping albums. All the way to the bitter end. Like Prince or Lemmy or Bowie. Just this massive spiraling discography.....fuck. It boggles the mind at the radiant possibilities that could have happened if he had simply....lived.
Never take this ride for granted. Never.
Who Am I?
I am Ahab.
