As the latest addition to the Dead Oceans/Jagjaguwar/Secretly Canadian family, I’ve been getting wedgies, noogies and wet willies like no other these past few months. I’ve had a lot of noob/rookie/freshman moments too. Here are my top 5 favorite.
Not too long after I was first hired, the Bloomington crew (And Phil from Austin) came up for Pitchfork Music Festival. It wasn’t that different from this post. I tried to stalk Raekwon to no avail and had too much free beer. Free beer will never get old!
2. X DEGREES OF NICKI MINAJ
If we work with Bon Iver/GAYNGS/Volcano Choir.. and Justin Vernon was on the Kanye record.. and “Monster” w/ Nicki Minaj…I was told there would be no math!
3. COMPANY CREDIT CARD
4. 9 TO 5
We run a real business, y’all. That means regular business hours. I’m so sleepy!
5. ROMANIAN NAMES PT. II
I was once just an intern making up Wikipedia rumors that John Vanderslice’s Romanian Names was about me. Now I’m his publicist, with a Romanian name!
Living the dream.
