Hi, this is Mike Matthews, boarding my pimped out bus that takes us to THE
LAST PLACE ON EARTH! This week we’ll talk to a fun and interesting
singer/songwriter named Tristen who has a lot to say about DIY album making
and creating her own unique style. We’re gonna hear some of her songs and
get up close and personal with her next as we travel into THE LAST PLACE ON
EARTH…insert slogan here.
So all of a sudden I had a bunch of cool people to interview. That does not
mean, however, that you’ll never hear from The Disgruntled Fiddle Player,
Benita the Rodeo Queen, or Chely Shoehart Our 18 Year Old Gift Shop
Supervisor ever again. They are patiently waiting in the wings along with
Valentino the Parking Attendant, Bison Bentley, Floyd the Floor Man, The
Brewmaster, and John Bohner.
To those of you new to the show, thanks for tuning in. I believe you can
find a lot more interesting things to listen to in the world of podcasts
versus commercial radio which is the most boring tripe ever. Sure, if you
love to hear Katy Perry’s “singing” piledriven into your ears repeatedly
than you can keep following the beat of a worn-out, past-its-prime drum. If
you really want to spark your imagination and learn something you never knew
before, listen to podcasts. Preferably by independent thinking people who
independently produce their own shows. I am trying to do that with this
show, so knowing you tuned in really makes me happy.
What else makes me happy? Not listening to Katy Perry’s “shrill as hill”
voice. Seriously, I lived through Alanis. I don’t need an updated
version. Putting a barbie doll on A’s head doesn’t make her any more
palatable. At least Alanis wasn’t trying to be sexy. She was just singing
her particular style and selling it with just her voice and guts. Katy is
all about image and whipped cream flying out of…well…places on her
But enough of that and I hope I didn’t offend you, no matter where your
musical taste might lean. Here is where you can hear the latest from THE
LAST PLACE ON EARTH.
