In 1999 I tried to hook on with one of the many online sites reviewing music. I must have applied at a hundred of them with no luck. They always asked for the same things when you applied, three examples of your writing and a brief history of your work reviewing music. After the 92nd rejection I decided to do something a little different. I sent out an audio review of any old Iggy Pop album.

Nothing. I worked up a review for the Pinkerton album by Weezer, but I never sent it, I kept it on cassette (yes I was still using a cassette tape recorder to interview and talk to bands and artists). While I never had any luck working for any online magazine, (I believe the quality of work was poor, or in other words I sucked at it), I did keep this audio file, and recently transferred it to MP3.

Don’t listen to me blather on about Weezer, instead listen for a 9 or 10 year old Tyler Bugos in the background and a short interview I did with 2-3 year old Dylan Bugos.
