Doing a Reddit IAMA/AMA

Postby steve on Thu May 03, 2012 3:53 pm

I'm doing an Ask Me Anything on Reddit starting at 2pm CST Tuesday May 8. It's not like anybody reading this needs special permission (to ask me anything), but the mods there asked me to post something publicly to prove I am actually me. Of course feel free to join in.

Is your timing/decision related to this submission which was posted yesterday? Not that it matters, really. Just wondering because it occurred to me when I saw it that you might like to do an AMA there.

I've been using reddit daily for several years. Not claiming to be an insider or an expert or anything, but if you have any questions, er... ask me anything.

Yeah, I have a question for "steve" - what mic did you use on Dave Ghrol's kick drum?

No, somebody who mods there emailed me and asked me and I said fine.

Me neither. I have no idea what it is, I'm just saying yes to something like I do a million times a year.

I've never read this site. I'm fascinated by the kid who worked on the Carnival Cruise boats. $600 a month sucks, but free lodging, food, and all the poontang you can handle apparently. Also 50 cent beers and $1 ten packs of cigarettes! I'm going to sea!

TIL reddit cares more about your identity than facebook does.

Christ almighty, that's me in the blue shirt, sitting next to forum member MTAR. I love this video now because my bald spot is so much smaller in it than it is today.

I was at that seminar too. There was an epic poker game that weekend in the Electrical suite with Fletcher from Mercenary Audio and a very expensive 12 pack of beer from room service.

Here's a list of music-specific subreddits.

The general rule on reddit is the smaller the sub, the less diluted with crap will be the submissions and comments.

Speaking as one who's followed you online since Chugchanga-L and bugged you myself to request this sort of interview in the past (last digital interaction: Slint oral history for Alternative Press mag), I can attest to this. Still, I'm interested in seeing what the broader public has to ask of you -- all of my questions would be about mic placement and Slint or Jesus Lizard members, which I can't imagine would resonate too widely.

Short answer: looking forward to it!

Is that still operative, given that Fight Club was officially declared dead a couple years ago?

So Fight Club Redux (or whatever the thing after Doug gave up is called) continues?

I didn't know, promise! Last time I logged on to [REDACTED] I was on a CRT monitor and Prodigy was still a cutting-edge Internet service, so you'll have to forgive me.

This might get more views than the one just started by the guy with two dicks and no butthole.
