So many publications, so little time: this is just a small sampling of the many articles I wrote for probably half a dozen student-run university publications (The Justice, The Hoot, The Blowfish, Lies and the Louis Lunatic. Ok, so one short of a half dozen):

The one where I listed my top ten of 2007

The one about Radiohead’s In Rainbows

The one where I listed my top ten of 2006

The one where I compared Girl Talk to the Hulk after hosting a show of his

The one where I had a pizza party with Oh No! Oh My! and then hosted their concert

The one about TV On The Radio’s Return To Cookie Mountain

The one about OAR that upset the group that brought said band to campus

The one about Say Anything’s …Is/Was A Real Boy

The one where I listed my top ten of 2005

The one where I interviewed drummer Jason Finn from Presidents of the United States of America
