Forecast for the Future

"Every individual without exception bears a potential writer within himself. The reason is that everyone has trouble accepting the fact that he will disappear unheard of and unnoticed in an indifferent universe, and everyone wants to make himself into a universe of words before it's too late. 

Once the writer in every individual comes to life (and that time is not that far off), we are in for an age of universal deafness and lack of understanding."

Week 12, Rock and Roll: The Cast

As I haven't provided this information to y'all directly already, here's a brief write-up on the cast of players from the past week's rock band activities:

Hot Doorknobs, aka The Rock of Gibraltar
BASS, DRUMS. Roommate, best friend, music lover, and most impressively, bassist of actual semi-known rock band (here, here, here) The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. He is the "fuck it, let's do it" gear in my Hyperliving machinery, and good to have around for the swift kicks in the ass I often need to get going when I hit walls or life gets me down.

Imanant Sell-off, aka The Sound and The Fury
GUITAR, DRUMS, SONGWRITING. Life-experiencer extraordinaire and celebrator of New Jersey Appreciation, Imanant also plays and records music both under his name and with his posse, the Blue Album Group, who are playing a show Friday, April 4 at Glasslands.

Jay Greene (real enough to get by with his own name)
GUITAR, SONGWRITING. Renaissance man Jay Greene is a writer, musician, and longtime friend living in Brooklyn. A former editor of Symphony Magazine, Jay has also written for Stylus webmag (RIP!) and the Village Voice. A violinist and part-time member of Elephant 6ers The Instruments and Brooklyn's Oratai Ensemble, Jay helped bring the rock.

Sistar Beaumont, aka Mo Tucker
DRUMS, PHOTOGRAPHY, SASS DELIVERY. Sibling, best friend, and CQ (coolness quotient) University valedictorian, she keeps me and everyone else on our toes with her firm commitment to a complete and total "I'm not taking your bullshit today, Beaumont" mindset. She is possibly the hippest person I know and prior to Saturday had never drummed. Also, I named her.

Based on that picture, I've deduced that the bassist is actually Cletus from the Simpsons.
