Not long now.
so i'm kinda looking forward to reading it. hope the other 100 entries aren't shite.
If you don't mind me asking
Based on the description in the link, it looks like the book'll be a collection of tedious hot takes ("And stop listening to such bloody terrible music" - Jesus wept) - but I'd be interested to hear what sort of music it's apparently OK to like.
and some hip-hop.
i won't just in case, but she's doing a classic album that i've never really understood the enduring appeal of, so i'm on board. dunno what the rest of the book will be like.
A night out with Everett True
Donate £100 and go on a night out with Everett True in Brighton (winner to pay own expenses) or a one hour skype session.
£100 and you still have to buy your own drinks?
he was asking on FB a while ago if anyone fancied meeting for drinks in Brighton, should've got in when it was free.
Write shit music reviews.
It's not going to turn me on to something I haven't heard and I'll just disagree if it's something I like.
*ok scathing reviews are entertaining but they're part of the mix not the sole reason for a book.
as long as they're not written like one of those DiS reviews where a writer picks the new album by a band they hate and doesn't listen to it and just writes about how much they hate them.
This won't be "a bit of fun". It'll be taken very seriously indeed.
As such, it will be totally unreadable.
