IN MOVIES AND TV SHOWS, EITHER VAMPIRES CAN'T GET LAID OR THERE'S SOME HORRIBLE CONSEQUENCE WHEN THEY DO. HAVE YOU FOUND THIS TO BE THE CASE IN REAL LIFE?
I don't really talk about my personal life in that fashion. However, like everything else, television never seems to capture any lifestyle correctly. I was just speaking with someone who happens to be a crime-scene investigator, and he said, "Yeah, it's nothing like CSI." Which is a shame, because it seems really exciting on television. There seems to be a lot more paperwork in real life. At least for crime-scene investigators. Not so much for vampires.

TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS FETISH FLEAMARKET THINGY.
It's convenient that it's a Valentine's Day weekend. If you're interested in exploring something new, it's a way to safely broach the subject with your significant other, rather than saying, "Honey . . . I'd like to watch some baboon porn," and gauging their reaction. You can go there, learn about kinks, and a lot of people are surprised how open their partners are to stuff, because we're afraid to talk about it. On a very serious level, going to a very benign event like this is a very good way for people who are curious about exploring other sides of their sexuality to do so in a non-threatening atmosphere. No one's going to chase you with a whip, or anything.

  •   HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS | WELCOME OBLIVION  |  March 13, 2013
    Whereas the monsters and ghosts of NIN songs can scream in your face and rip you to bits with their fangs, Welcome Oblivion tracks like techno-folk haunter "Ice Age" and the doom-pop jaunt "How Long?" make uncredited cameo appearances in your nightmares until you go insane and eat your own hands.
  •   JOHNNY MARR | THE MESSENGER  |  February 25, 2013
    Going solo is rarely a good decision. For every exception to the rule of who flourishes after unburdening themselves of the half-talents that have been holding them back — Justin Timberlake, for one — there are dozens of embarrassing Dee Dee Ramone rap albums that exist because Joey and Johnny Ramone weren't around to kibosh a terrible idea.
  •   WHAT'S F'N NEXT? BUKE AND GASE  |  January 29, 2013
    Almost every person I've told about Buke and Gase assumes that they'll hate this band, which isn't their fault.
  •   BLEEDING RAINBOW | YEAH RIGHT  |  January 23, 2013
    The only defect of the sort-of-but-not-really debut from Bleeding Rainbow (no longer called Reading Rainbow, possibly due to litigious ire festering under LeVar Burton's genial television persona) is that the Philly foursome merely hop off the launching point forged by Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, and a handful of others from the oft-exalted grunge era.
  •   10 THINGS I WISH I KNEW BEFORE I STARTED PLAYING IN BANDS IN BOSTON  |  January 25, 2013
    We hear you just moved to "the Bean", and you're thinking about starting a real life rock-'n-roll band! Here's a bunch of bullshit you should know about.
