Ever since my boy Devin ran it down to me, my mantra has been this: “I try to take a cigarette break every hour, on the hour”. Of course, he was talking about where I could find him while we were at work. But I thought to myself, I think I’ll adopt that modus operandi and apply it to life in general. I tend to implement a real “take it or leave it” approach to things. And for the most part, society doesn’t make sense to me (this will become apparent to you in future rants). I’m here with Neworleansmusicians.com for several reasons. First and foremost, I love music; the passion, the grit, the ability to make a connection without saying a word. And I love New Orleans. There’s just no other place like it on earth. If I had to move out of this state, you could stab me. If I had to move north of the Mason Dixon line, you might as well just shoot me. I’ve seen Narnia, and fuck that. I don’t have to go that far to find mounds of white powder. Anyway, my intentions are true. I tend to rant at times. And honestly, I think that’s why they signed me on here. But I intend to give it to the readers raw dog, like I already know y’all don’t have an STD. I don’t want a following, but I do want people to feel me. I’m not flashy, but I am loud. If you see me out, be prepared to drink, or fuck, or fight. In my opinion, the bands in New Orleans, and the surrounding areas for that matter, are due a lot more credit. I really think this site is going to help deliver it to them. And hell, even if it doesn’t, it’s free! I want to see bands coming together on here with fans. This is not some giant corporate worldwide bucket for local bands in which to be a drop. This is a soap box for US. And it’s a chance for local bands to actually make a connection with their fan base and do for self. So, to the bands I say, come hither! Sell your merch, book your own shows and tours, peruse NOM’s directory and DIY! This is what it’s all about…the experience of making it. I’ll be here on the sidelines, with a bucket of popcorn, some 3D glasses, and something loud like a bullhorn or something. If any bands out there want to score an interview and some free press, NOM is accepting e-mail submissions at firstname.lastname@example.org. And by submission, I mean send them something good man; a back story, and a link to your music. I guess that’s about it kiddos. So, yeah, this is me…. Howdy!
