I was cleaning out the closet two weeks ago. I found a folder, full of old writing. I found stuff that I had written with chums Danesh and Andy back in highschool. But most interestingly, I found this. This is not my first published work (that would be an article about turtles from grade 2 in the local newspaper). This may be, however, my first published work along the lines of what I’m doing now.
Dating back to 1995, my second year at the store, I was already getting jaded! This is my very first music article: “Bands That I Think Suck”. It was published in the University of Waterloo paper Scientific Notation as a comedy piece. Thanks to Abbas Rizvi for doing so, wherever you are.
I still stand by most of this, but I have since grown to like Pink Floyd. (See: Part 28: The Boy Who Killed Pink Floyd).
OK…ON WITH THE EMBARASSMENT!
