Tina Treason on the Melissa Gira quote a few entries down:

i’ve tried to explain this to people before but no one seems to understand what i mean when i say we are a generation without secrets. anything anyone could do to us, anything we could do to ourselves has already been splayed out in all its bloody glory on some talk show, or lifetime special, or reality tv. nothing in us is sacred, nothing hides itself away for the sake of staying sacred. we’ve been horrifically exposed and so we know nothing other than how to expose ourselves in the most painful ways.

Nef’s Audio Assault

December 13th, 2005 | music, people I know

For those who like the very noisy grindy growly stuff: Nef’s Audio Assault, featuring a new independent/unsigned band every week. Nef says:

Basically – I plug bands – no strings attached! It may be nice if you could find it in your heart to link this site to yours after you’ve received some publicity, but no worries if you don’t. I cannot promise you’ll be noticed by any entity that may further your career, etc. Bottom line – I make no promises of fame, period… I’ll promise to support the scene by posting your band and giving you a fair shot of amateur publicity.
