I'm very happy to announce that I will be hosting a new show on Brutal Existence Radio .com starting March 29th (Monday) from 8-10 pm (central time). I don't have the name of the show yet - I'm taking suggestions - but I will let you all know as soon as I do. If you have not checked out the site yet, please do. Fowler, the owner has an amazing thing going and I am honored to join the team at BER.
While discussing the show with Fowler, he mentioned something that really stuck with me last night: Their main goals are to promote REAL underground music and to help each other out. That's why BER will be a perfect fit for me. And I am so excited that Stoned Insanity's Lizard Messiah will be hosting a show after me from 10-12 central!
Both Lizard and I have decided to keep our Blog Talk Radio shows for now, be we are thinking of switching to be sure. Only time will tell.
Of course, both my shows will be simulcast on my Ustream channel - for you visual junkies out there. (Those are always available on AnnieChrist.com.)
On the book project: I am getting notes and interviews together on the Teenage Waste years. There are times when I think about the enormity of the whole project based on the info coming in from just this band - and it is overwhelming. But I plan to just take it one chapter at a time. I am not kidding when I say Mike has lived an incredible, fearless life. It's crazy to hear about it sometimes.
Oh, and last but not least. I inherited a fucking cannon. My last living grandparent died two days ago - I was never close with him so I certainly didn't expect that he would leave me anything - especially not the coolest thing in his yard! OK, I got the giant concrete alligator and eagle.....but hey, a cannon comes with the deal. I actually think that he didn't leave me these things, but the family is trying to get them off the yard so they can sell his house. Either way, no one in my family would appreciate a cannon more than me. Now all I need is a Nova on blocks, and maybe a clothesline, and I will be the coolest redneck in Alabama!
Ok - I'm off to book the next show - there are some incredible bands coming up this Monday and I hope to see you there!
