Buddyhead writes for the Weekly now? Really!? Another English major robbed of a job. Let's deconstruct then, shall we. The anecdote about sleeping on floors while touring it up with Icarus Line, his Buddyhead co-hort's band - how many more times can we read this self-validating, hipster-that-thou spouting in his writing? The whole "Two words: Pete Majors" and his "metal-riffic" appearance not depicting his true musical prowess - unashamedly plagiarized off Yelp reviews on the store written by more of the hipster-be-journalist contingent. The lack of detail describing the store's immaculate appearance and organization structure in favor of more anecdotal indie-hyperbole - stereotypical lack of setting emphasis common of Internet "journalists." Sealing it with a Chevy Chase quip - classic humor diversion (aka schtick).
Oh, I can't wait for the reply to this: "I'm punk blah blah blah, I don't need an English degree to be a writer, or a Photo education to be photographer, check my self-written Wikipedia man. I do drugs man blah blah blah... Primal Scream anecdote." Snooze.
Couldn't you have at least hired a Pitchfork writer if you're seeking indie-cred? Most of them actually worked their asses off to be published, as opposed to popularizing themselves by creating an indie-gossip-mag equivalent to the Inquirer. If you insist on funding Travis' coke-diet, could at least get him to write a scathing tell-all about the division of Buddyhead - "Gossip Curators: The Rise and Fall of Buddyhead."
Oh haters, why we gotta hate?
Hey dude sorry I got the job and you didnt. you can bitch all you want here in the comments and look like a dicknose or go start writing your own articles and do something about it. Come on... no one said i was Charles Dickenson, I'm just writing for a free paper that has boobs on the cover of its Bob Dylan issue. Relax bro.
