What's the next article? You decide. [May. 10th, 2011|07:18 pm]

I'm covered in writer's block like a wet sheepskin. Help me out. If I can pick one of the articles that have been bonking about in my head and stick to it, things will be easier. The poll below has a list of titles. Pick one!

I have no idea how many people read this, or how many of those are interested, but this will give my brain a shove. Thanks!.

If you can't stand my writing, don't want me to write, or are disappointed in the lack of "Surface to Air Missile" option, the comments are there for you.

Poll #1740165 What is to be written?

The next article should be:

It's always night around here
On Hating Teachers
Let's be reasonable.
Someone has to be the grown-up.
My war with indie rock

Your war with indie rock!

Can indie legitimately be called post-punk? Does the term "indie" still mean a certain stance with regard to the market (independence from the majors, DIY ethic), or is it just the name of a sound? Allmusic.com lists The Fall, Pixies, Meat Puppets, Sonic Youth, Television, the Velvet Underground, and Wire (among others) as influences on Pavement. Do you agree or disagree? Stephen Malkmus's "Real Emotional Trash": worth a damn?

I think you write quite brilliantly though infrequently. You're one of the few on the LJ flist I actually read as opposed to skim.

I like the first topic because it's wide open. If you're clever you can fold all the subsequent topics into it.

voted "my war with indie rock" but feel like I should warn you that I am willing to throw down hard over blank generation remodels of "our generation had THE BEATLES" so bring that A-game
