Top Five Pieces You Yourself Wrote – from Rockcritics, a fantastic idea for a list, if it elicits confessions like this, from Mark Sinker (an excellent writer). “Written to convince myself of the uselessness of being in love with [xXx], and at the same time to persuade [xXx] — who was first to read it — to adore me. What’s wrong with it is also why it works, maybe: that I’m not always at all sure whose head I’m in. Not that it did ‘work’, at least in the hopeless, impossible sense of the first sentence.”. This about an essay on the ethics of punk.
