Recently, while finding new ways to win friends and influence people to come here and read what I have to say, I came across a writing opportunity at No Ripcord, an independent online magazine that specializes in music and movie criticism. They were looking for writers, so I figured I'd fill out an application and send them a sample.
I was hired. I know: Shocking.
I submitted my first review yesterday: a rather unhappy mix of words and phrases thrown at the latest release by The Brian Jonestown Massacre, an unfocused and sloppy album called, My Bloody Underground. If you're interested, you can find that here.
In the meantime, for those of you who still read Letters, I'm not bailing on this. I still plan to keep this up on top of the No Ripcord stuff. It was just an opportunity that I couldn't pass up.
So, now I can be found in two outlets. I plan to spread like a virus .
