An In-Snide Look #46: Darrin's Freshman Year Playlist

Tuesday playlist time:

College probably taught me nothing of value in my chosen field (computer science), as I seriously paid four years of professors to tell me that PC's were toys and beneath me. I should stick to mainframe programming. Even inductive reasoning doesn't hold up in the FaceBook era when people can just invent whatever source they want in order to provide "definitive proof" of any position, even if it's contradictory to this thing called "reality" that the rest of us live in. I suppose the one thing College did give me is exposure to about twenty different genres of music, each of which I adapted on my own for at least a brief time.

Yes, it will probably shock you to know that, for a span of a couple months at the beginning of my Freshman year, I the former metal head turned bluesman, briefly dallied into the real of ... well, what was then called "alternative," but is now more like "goth" or "emo." Basically it was a crazy, experimental time. I think we discussed it in an earlier blog post, go look it up. Anyway, it forms a good chunk of this week's playlist. Close your eyes and picture the rest.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
