Thank You Pat Berkery

Half the length, twice the personality, not one use of the words “messianic” or “visionary” or “Red Bull” or “fucking” (Okay, this is the Philadelphia Inquirer after all).

But man, when the Moby review in the Inky trumps the Voice, somebody’s got some ‘splainin to do. Or maybe not.

How To Be A Male Groupie

(Link from The Modern Age)

Not sure how I feel about this . Good choices, dopey, though not entirely sleazy writing. It’s kind of funny, imagining a men.style reader (whatever that is) chasing after the kind of girl who would punch them. I want to see a follow-up article about the men who went to shows and took this advice and had Joanna Newsom’s harp fall on them or got punched in the testicles repeatedly by The Donnas. But again, it’s that same old song: women with guitars are viewed through awe or fear, and rarely as humans.

On the second thought, you want to be a good male groupie? How about a raise? Thanks.
