|Below are links to Lollipops staffers bio pages. They range from professional to silly on the whim of the staffer. ("Whim of the Staff" explains a lot.)
As Editor/Publisher, my reason for providing this information about myself and encouraging others to follow suit (but not file suit, please) is to provide context. The bylines at the end of reviews are not just names, theyre people. All are part of what Id call "the team" if I could hold back a snicker. Everyone does interesting stuff and Ive enjoyed long, rambling emails from everyone at some point about Life, the Universe, and Everything You Can Write-Off as A Business Expense.
So heres your peek into the lives and doings of some of the most creative people Ive met (and some I havent). All like to be emailed and told how much they rule, and most are available for hire. Cash, cocaine, or compliments, kids. Most of us have smoked our resumés and done our internships, so try bribing us with book deals, unlimited bar tabs, and CD covers/liner notes for bands with a budget, ok?
Be goofy. Have fun. Make weird shit. Lifes too short to work for someone else, doing something youre pretty sure doesnt really need doing, all the time waiting to find everlasting joy and happiness, or at least start a family and get a reasonable mortgage to spend the rest of your life trying to pay off. Fuck that. "Live" is a verb. Make it an active one, not a passive one.
