I really don't mind the clickbait stuff. It's actually kind of clever in a way. I don't mean this offensively but it's kind of like TMZ for alt rockers.
He's not going to pay you to write for him.

I take the TMZ thing as a compliment, they've broken some huge stories. Always I try to have a sense of humor about the dumb stuff like they do.

To fuzzy, Magic Mike still does some off and on work behind the scenes. A lot of the writers back then I had because I thought you needed a staff to get on Google news, most stories they wrote were mainly stuff I sent them, that to be honest is quicker for me to just do myself. Mike's bigger role was/has always been communicating with PR type people. I do need to put out a thing for more editorial type writers though, I don't have time to write longform stuff like the D'arcy interview all of the time. Any time you spend a lot of time on a long article with today's Facebook algorithms, you are risking having spent a lot of time on something nobody will read.

Shit, so you're pretty much rocking the site alone now hey? That's gotta be tough. I get that you report on stuff that you're genuinely into, but a site like that seems like it would be nonstop work. You don't really get to ever take a break or anything eh?

Just talked to D'arcy, told her some of the nice comments people have made about the pic, she's very appreciative.

It pretty much has to be me covering all the daily 90's rock news. The issue with the daily news headlines is it has gotten so competitive with the algorithms now that even if a headline is slightly off nobody will read it (or see the Facebook post/Google News headline), I can't trust people who don't have the experience I do with doing that. You basically have to either be first or one of the first on a story, and it has to involve sex/drugs/nostalgia/emotion/hatred/be super cute or nobody will read it, and there have to be very famous names in the headline. I know I get a lot of shit for the types of headlines but I pretty much have to do it, there is no other option. People can thank Mark Zuckerberg for that.

What I could use though is more people writing editorials, and maybe doing some interviews as well (I've become too cynical about publicists to deal with them unless they're paying me to cover their unknown band), then I can figure out the headlines. I need to put up an open call for that. I'm also looking into having some podcast/video content soon, but it has to be done right and good. For videos I only really want to have female reporters doing them. Nobody wants to look at me blab on about this shit. I want to expand the type of stuff we cover too into more areas of rock and music, I'm trying to acquire some social media pages to expand that.

When it comes to the schedule I do not ever take complete off days no matter what. How I look at it is I don't have to go into a fucking office, so why should I have off days? Also having zero off days helps make up for the periods where traffic/money is down. The traffic can definitely fluctuate. It can be very stressful due to all of the variables of micro managing a lot of stuff but again I'm thankful to get to write about bands I love.

I also don't have to be sitting in one place for 10 hours or go to an office. I usually like working in the mornings and then going to the gym and then go for a swim/standup paddle board in the afternoon, then do some more work in evening. I also can travel and work, I was stopping at Starbucks to post updates on Chris Cornell's funeral when I was on a trip to Washington DC last year.

Hell yeah man, that sounds rad. That's gotta be the nice part. Just doing it throughout the day when you feel like it. No assholes to answer to or anything like that. Being able to do it on the fly is sweet too. Don't have to worry about taking time off to travel or anything like that.

Podcast sounds like a dope idea dude. I don't really think there is any big ones out there that cover the kind of music that you do. You'd definitely be filling a niche that is ripe for the taking.

i've never gone on your site from my phone (as far as i recall), and your howard stern/chris cornell suicide article came on my newsfeed right after some politics stuff (today). obviously it knows i read about SP and whatever but i was pretty surprised to see it.

also seeing ads for the shiny and oh so shit tour everywhere

Darcy wasnt in the band for 18 years. She could never take a whole tour due to her lack of selfesteem. She seems completed wacked, insecure and might have a drug or alcohol problem.

Billy is an arrogant pisser that makes announcements of announcements - and most important: he makes shitty albums.

I really avoid another SP show. Unmotivated Billy playing thru his set emotionlessly, not talking to the crowd (but shitting on it) - spitting around wildly on stage - BILL it´s no wonder that you aren´t successful anymore, cause firstly you make 2-3 stars records and attacking and blaming anyone except yourself for your lack of success.

Dárcy should stay on her farm milking cows and smoking weed.
There still seems to be bad blood around the pumpkins and once again they are DEAD in my eyes.

He won´t do a European tour cause the last tours were half empty.
