matthewedwards: douglasmartini: I find it a little weird that Bradford Cox can’t even post a bunch of his own songs on his own blog without some sort of controversy following him. Just heard about this. I can’t really wrap my head around the stupidity of it. Y’all wonder why I never send my music to record labels.

“CAPITOL CITY CRUNKNESS (10/15/10)” My friend David woke me up, a mere four hours after I’d gone to sleep, to inform me that I and the rest of his guests had to leave ASAP: he had to go to work early in the morning, and he didn’t have any spare keys to give us so that we could sleep in. He then asked me if I could drop him and the other guests off at a central location, since I was...

“ANCIENT HOUSTONIAN SECRET (10/14/10)” I traditionally begin my tours in Houston because that city has received my music more enthusiastically than Austin has over the last few years. Thus, it pleased me that Scout Niblett’s booking agent scheduled her to play Houston first. It pleased me even more that the show would take place at Rudyard’s British Pub, an established, popular and...

“THE INSPIRATION OF SCOUT NIBLETT” I must begin by thanking Scout Niblett for inspiring me to go on my fourth and biggest national tour. Scout’s a singer/songwriter whom I often describe to friends as “Cat Power meets Meg White”: her singing and guitar playing are similar to the former’s, and her drumming is almost as rudimentary as the latter’s. However, I believe that Scout’s a...

dopegirlfresh: Frye is nationally recognized as an expert on the legal issues facing transgender Americans. Her law firm is currently representing Nikki Araguz in the suit brought by Mrs. Araguz’s late husband’s ex-wife in Wharton County. The ex-wife is attempting to void the Araguz’s marriage (so that she may inherit the estate of her ex-husband). The suit centers on the fact that Mrs. Araguz...
jazzzyone: Jon Stewart interviewed Jay-Z about his new book on “The Daily Show” last night. Two Sagittarians shooting the breeze. Love the moment at 4:08 when Jay-Z’s bluntness cracks Jon up. I’ll be reading this at a “B” bookstore. A quote I like: In order for rap to have longevity, we have to stop viewing it as a young man sport…and view it as an art form. We have to tackle more mature...

herzundseele: Excerpt: I’d walked downstairs to fix lunch, and as I entered the room, my mom asked bluntly, “Why do you have pictures of yourself on Facebook?” I replied, “Because I want to have pictures of myself up there…” My mom sputtered, “But you’re bald!” At that moment, it hit me just how uncomfortable my mother was in my presence- or rather in the presence of my bald head.

Click on the link to watch me perform “Touch My Hair” @ the Freight Street Gallery in Waterbury, CT on November 2nd, 2010. The person who touches my hair @ the end is the bassist of Singing Bridges, who opened for me that evening. She’s family, so it’s cool :-)

Money does not buy happiness. But it does buy a house, lights, heat, a warm belly. It buys a full night of sleep on a Posturepedic mattress. It buys freedom to write about suburban angst and anger. A shelf full of books. Poetry conferences. Art on your walls. A night at the opera.
