Forget the fact that he thinks Architected is a word, Domaine Home is actually praising Kanye West’s Interior Design Advice. Oy. Don’t they understand that if we keep giving him all of this attention he’ll never go away? Sigh. If you ever have a few hundred thousand to blow on an over-inflated ego, and need to learn which shade of taupe will look good on your ceiling – donate that money to a charity. Or hire Yeezus.

I have conducted and written about a gazillion interviews in my career, and most have turned out really good or great, not just thanks to my extreme talent but also to my good fortune at being able to interview some of the most verbose and charismatic figures in rock music. Somebody who’s always an amazing interview is Martin Atkins: drummer, label owner, entrepreneur and mastermind behind the revolving line-up underground supergroup, Pigface. Martin is the shit. Fortunately for all you struggling musicians out there, Martin has just written the definitive insiders’ book on touring tips for bands, entitled Tour: Smart. I was quite flattered to be among the 150 or so music industry luminaries that Martin solicited for input to be included in the book. Of course, I was thrilled to oblige.
My contribution to Tour: Smart centers on interviews, mistakes musicians make when approaching interviews, how bad that pisses me off and what you can do to avoid my wrath. You will probably really enjoy reading that section, because I name names and use a lot of swear words. Tour: Smart should be released this summer, and is a guaranteed must-read.

There are so many hilarious things on this list, which is one of my favorite blogs that my pal Ian recently turned me on to. Apparently, this guy used to write for Ink19.com also, but I don’t remember him. I’d remember anyone who wrote shit this funny.
