Katy Perry played [me] Sparks long ago in my bedroom in Qns (the old Bklyn) and I don’t know Fangs, they still just make me wanna listen to Mott the Hoople. [I] will keep trying.

NEW YORK TIMES VALIDATES AND POSSIBLY EXONERATES MATT AND RYNNN (<click here you illiterate)
Three out of five Glass Rock members are sleep disturbed. The worst of the bunch, perhaps betrayed in their uncannily smooth and instantaneous rhythym connection are Matt (bass, heavy metal) and Rynnn (drums, chatter). In his unwitting nocturnal life, Matt has enjoyed practicing ninjitsu, sexual role playing, and shouts that could rival those of Guantanamo Bay itself and Alan Vega himself. Rynnn’s slumber-time exploits pillow leg violence have been recounted to his horror at a dinner party, whereupon he realized he had no recollection of his night time adventures. This posed many questions for Glass Rock on how to handle 2009′s UK Tour and the dread continues. When their eyes are open are Matt and Rynnnn sleeping or awake? When they converse with you and degrade you, are they in real time or dreamland? The messed up thing is they don’t know and may even tell you they’re awake when they’re not! Despite crucial codeword “Walnuts” being established in order to wake up these drifters and grifters, the band still has major concerns about their upcoming stay in Detroit. And guess what? All of this is true!
“Being killed by a blow to my carotid artery is not my thing,” says guitarist Dave Mies. “Even if Rynnn is massaging my [large] feet at the time.”
We are currently taking suggestions at Glass Rock Life on how to deal with this. Dr. Jubb has not responded at all. Do we keep Matt and Rynnn up all night? Do they receive separate rooms [filled with cable television,wi-fi, mints, mini-bar] chained from the outside, similar to Aaron’s arrangements on tours with more high profile bands [sans cable, wi-fi, mints, mini-bar]? Please experts, charlatans, and concerned citizens write as soon as possible. Home remedies welcome.
1) Why did Glass Rock Life fail?
2) How do you feel about Kathy leaving Glass Rock?
I thought everything was going cool. Then Kathy said maybe she should be on the work wheel at our house when she stays here. I told her she was on permanent compost. She never stayed at our house again. The other day I sent her this picture of our gnarly, liquified compost, which I said was missing her. Next thing I know, you’re telling me Kathy has left the band.
Now that Kathy has left Glass Rock, Matt and Dave are searching furiously for new projects. Says Matt, “Desperation is the seed of desperate acts.” Aaron’s whereabouts remain unknown. In the meantime, Glass Rock’s two most important members are auditioning replacement vocalists and basement tape masters with long coat tails now. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with CV, mp3s, and coat tail dimensions. Thank you.

Our sister band Tall Firs has got some new rockers up on their site. If you like, or dislike, humanity you might want to check it out.
Despite her immediate shutdown of the Glass Rock essay contest, head Glass Rocker Kathy agreed to do Interview Spotlight. Enjoy her smoky answers and check out Wasted, GnR’s new song, for elucidation.
1) Do you care what the Fall album Aaron likes best? Actually yes.
2) Does discussing the procees behind songs and painting dillute the intagibles of creating them? Are there intangibles? Intangibles are the funnest thing to talk about! That’s what creative metaphors are for. And dancing.
3) What was it like riding around as a young person in a car with Fred Leisen of Hard Place? Fun & free.
4) Dave Mies salutes the free spirits of Southeastern Michigan people, who are currently repatriating to Queens, New York and/or remaining in wide open Detroit. Why is it that [these people] love nude beaches, gardening, Awesome Color, massages, garage music, riding bikes, Perfect Wieners and Butts, dancing, Leon Chase, the Electrifying Mojo, and funk 45s? High levels of Intangibles.
5) Do you feel that dancing to Sweet Leaf on ecstasy in San Francisco was the beginning of Soft Location? It’s getting close.
6) What band did you like most at All Tomorrow’s Parties? Sleepy Sun
7) What are the ethics of having a personaler? 1. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. 2. Make an effort.
Thank you Kathy for your forthrightness. I.S. hopes to hook-up other interviews soon, please check back, and we’ll aim for elusive figures like Kathy. Here’s a song from her old group Soft Location featuring Chris Morris, Ben Good, Leah Retherford, and Matt Kantor.
She says too that Tall Firs are playing live at Glasslands, BK on March 6th and they are up to secret projects.
