In what might be the most surreal, irony-laden moment of my life, a recent NPR blog post mentioned Stuff You Will Hate as a source for information on crunkcore. As if it couldn’t get any funnier, the writer of the post (Carrie Brownstein) used to be in fucking SLEATER KINNEY, who I saw many times growing up in the Seattle punk scene of the early 90s. If I had to make a list of people unlikely to have any interest at all in SYWH, she would be at the very top, so I’m stoked to count her as a reader!
I am very grateful for the link, because I’ve gotten a lot of traffic from it, and most likely from people who would normally never read this site. Thanks babe! Even though I mostly listen to Hatebreed and Demolisher these days, I actually do like Sleater Kinney. And I’m not into indie chicks, but in Carrie’s case I would- she’s got a certain charm about her, maybe it’s because I *am* into Jewish girls??
