Whenever I think about Tinder, I just think about a bunch of shirtless goblins whose frothy slobber is dripping all over their glass keypads. I guess it’s more or less universal knowledge that Tinder is a man’s world.

My friend made the top out of latex, which I got at a place where they sell PVC pipes. Read More
The first time I saw Carrie Brownstein perform, her band, Sleater-Kinney, and my band, Sonic Youth, were both playing the 1997 Bumbershoot festival in Seattle. Watching her on stage, with her flying mop of hair and long arms windmilling in the style of Pete Townshend, I was riveted by her willingness to give it all to the moment. Backstage, her mom told me that Carrie had grown up watching videos of the Who. Read More
