"Whilst it's true that the culture is diverse and keen to promote itself as a liberation from 'mainstream' ideologies, there are those who seek to draw lines between fans and bands that are 'true' and 'false'. Such intense territoriality is usually a pursuit of nascent youth, but in a movement so obsessed with the integrity of its proponents, it can form the basis of the scene's self-regulation."

This isn't from an article about geek culture (strictly speaking), but it parallels a LOT of conversations I've had about it over the years. An interesting read shared with me by my pal Stephe.

If you dig blunted, brick-throwing, helium-sucking aliens rapping about whatevs, Pitchfork's streaming the new Quasimoto:

Hey, friends! That was an impossibly long election cycle, huh? Wouldn't you like to get away to a world of magic, wonder, elves, and 45 minute solos? Well, on this week's "Like I'm An Idiot," Mr. Henry Monteiro, +Mike Monteiro's boy, explains the world of Prog Rock to me. And it's magic. Please listen to it in an awesome van.

Watching the Nelly "Behind The Music," and for the first time in my life thought, "Man. I hope it works out for Nelly."

Hey, friends! It's an alternate Wednesday, and that means it's time for a new episode of LIKE I'M AN IDIOT, this thing that +Mike Monteiro  lets me do on his podcast network for some reason. 

This week, my dear, smart, patient pal +Bryan Mason  tries to explain the Electoral College to me, and I try not to get confused by all of his big, fancy words like "democracy" and "and." 

Enjoy!

My friends at Mule Radio Syndicate (+Mike Monteiro. +Erika Hall, et al), were kind enough to let me be stupid for them in the form of a show. It's called "Like I'm An Idiot," and this week Mule's David Mccreath attempts to explain The Cloud to me. 

It's an uphill battle.

Here's me performing the text of a 1950s educational film with Portland's own +The Doubleclicks.  Thanks to +Chad Collier  for taping it!

My friends and I wrote this patently bug-nuts promo for Justin "Fast Five" Lin's new YouTube network, YOMYOMF.  It has a zillion celebrity cameos, as well as my actual naked ass. Enjoy.
