Hi there, I'm Joel. I live in New England, and I want desperately to be a music critic. I have difficulty being proactive, and working at things without someone telling me to. I also have some issues with self-consciousness and the way I'm perceived by others. I'm hoping this can help me grow out of these things. I don't know if I can plausibly pull this off, as I'll be applying for colleges and generally going about my high schooler business, but I'm gonna try like hell. Wish me luck!
Anyways, Wilco is my favorite band, I also love Sleater-Kinney, Pavement, and Superchunk, amongst others. My favorite movies are Zodiac, Slacker, High Fidelity, Reservoir Dogs, and I forget others. I'm a die hard Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bulls, and Manchester United fan. Honestly though, I'm really a music person.
