Another One

Dear [Mother's Denim Jacket],

We have had two editors look at your story, and we are afraid we must take a pass on this one. Some of the comments were:
"Unlikable narrator stops me from wanting to read on."
"Good consistent voice."
Hope this is helpful. No one likes getting rejections, but we feel a detailed and personal rejection is empowering and respectful to the author.

Thanks, mates. Sort of a roller coaster of rejection.

Interview with Gnod

It's been slow going, but when I scored an interview with Gnod I was over the M.O.O.N. as it were (jk, his music is great). Paddy of Gnod one time sent me a free digital copy of In Gnod We Trust just because I asked him. I spent meticulous hours coming up with my questions and finally sent them to the group, they're response has certainly changed the way I view their music.

Hey [Mother's Denim Jacket]

I have just done an interview for a  large publication that is very similar questions to this mate, im not sure I can bring myself to go over it again. I could just cut n paste the answers but that would not be right.

Maybe we should do this another time?



It's another one for the history books, people. Frost/Nixon, Frank Sinatra/That guy who wrote about his cold, and finally Spencer/Gnod. Yeah, so hopefully I'll come up with some better questions in the future and finally earn recognition from a musican. In the meantime, everyone should listen to Gnod's recent album Infinity Machines because it's dope as all fuck.

Interview with M.O.O.N.

You know how much I love Hotline Miami and all it's crazy music, right? Well I finally scored an interview with M.O.O.N, one of the major creative forces behind the HLM soundtrack. It's certainly been an enlightening experience. Here it is in full:

Me: Hello, my name is [REDACTED]. I am writing to request an interview for my personal music blog. I have always been a fan of your music and would be very interested to ask you a number of questions about your creative process, influences, future projects, etc. I know you must be busy so please do not feel obligated to respond, but if you are free I would be more than pleased to send you some questions via email which you could answer at your leisure or we could organize an interview over the phone or Skype at a later date. Thanks very much for your time.

Moon: What's the blog?

Please forgive iPhone mistakes

Me: It's a blog that I just started that I might publish into a zine. You can visit it at if you want, but there really isn't much to see just yet.

Moon: No thanks

It's true what they say, the stars are always more humble in person or should I say the...M.O.O.N?

You can buy his music from this website:

I particularly enjoy his MOON EP, hope you like it too.

Why I Want to Fuck Ronald Reagan

by JG Ballard [excerpt from “The Atrocity Exhibition” ]
RONALD REAGAN AND THE CONCEPTUAL AUTO DISASTER. Numerous studies have been conducted upon patients in terminal paresis (GPI), placing Reagan in a series of simulated auto crashes, e.g. multiple pileups, head-on collisions, motorcade attacks (fantasies of Presidential assassinations remained a continuing preoccupation, subject showing a marked polymorphic fixation on windshields and rear trunk assemblies). Powerful erotic fantasies of an anal-sadistic surrounded the image of the Presidential contender.
