Thought Bubble: I am happy to give bands advice if…

anngellewood:

I am happy to give bands advice if they ask and if I think they’ll do something with it. Two general comments I will make today: 

1) I am not looking for cover bands. Play original music and own it. Make your own sound.

2) Please invest some time (and money) in recording. Having a ProTools rig doesn’t make one a producer. Put some new ears on that shit!

I will answer any questions you have, carefully.

Thought Bubble: Maya Angelou gave me the best advice of my life.

She said, “When people show you who they are, believe them.”

It took me some time to apply this. But what an epiphany when I figured it out. 
I no longer had to contend with users, assholes, creeps, and sycophants. I took back my power. We all have it. We just don’t always know how to apply it.

For a long time, I though there were things I had to put up with. That “just smile and keep your mouth shut.” I changed. I quit jobs, I ended friendships, partnerships were canceled and I stopped talking to people. Even unkindness from my own family was no longer swept under the rug. Once you learn who someone is, they will show you again and again. It is up to you what you do with it. 

Maya is such a powerful force of insight and knowledge. My hope is that legions to come may learn from her words. Her legacy lives on in all of us.

Agent: When a band that I have worked with for years finally breaks thru…

agentvspromoter:

I’m no agent. I’m also no promoter. Sometimes good stuff happens and only people like us remember how it all started.

2014 Rock ‘n’ Roll Rumble Rear View. I’m just coming down.

image

A champagne soaked Anngelle with Andrew of Mellow Bravo & JR Roach of Goddamn Draculas!

Truly. It’s been one week since we wrapped up the stellar #RUMBLE35. This was my 5th as host and organizer. It feels like I have finally gotten it right. The bands. The people. The vibe every night. It just worked. 

I am really okay with telling everyone that it was more work this year than any before. When I took on the task of bringing the Rumble back from the dead, I fully accepted that, no matter what, it would be my job to lead it, to oversee it, and do everything needed to make it a success. And doing all the work on my own this year was by choice. I don’t trust just anyone to be involved. While I did put together an excellent team of people for the event (whom I will get to in a minute) there are things that I only I can do. I have set the tone for the way I want the Rumble run. That’s the way it is. I am very proud of it. It means everything to me. Why else would I cry like an ass in front of hundreds of people (also, oof!).

So, now, after 5 months of around the clock work, it is over. I have only begun to recover. 

So many thank yous. I will be revisiting this as I have time this weekend but wanted to get this out before too much time went by. Thanks to my CBS Radio/WZLX people for allowing me to do this and supporting me through it - Mike Thomas, Carter Alan, Chachi Loprete, Tim Staskiewicz and Matt Dolloff.

Carter’s awesome mullet needs some facetime

To those of you who I saw out every (or nearly every) night. I know this. And I thank you. To those of you who come out the Rumble and support it, thank you! You have nothing to say if you don’t come to see what it is really all about. 

Special thanks to Paul Gallo. He puts up with way more than any of you would.

Thank you TT the Bear’s, Kevin Patey, Bonney Bouley, David Virr, & all the staff for seeing this through.

Thought Bubble: What did I get from this year-end stuff?

image

I did some year in review for Boston Emissions. Taking a long look at the show and what I did with it all year is satisfying. I have many favorites as a show host and music programmer. 

My personal collection of favorites from the year is endless. I didn’t have a shit-tastic 2013. I’m giving it a good review. My birthday at the Foundation Room was more fun than I can remember (seriously, what do I remember?) - full of new and old friends. Making the decision to not commute into the city everyday has lowered my blood pressure and added years to my life. That and having dogs means I will live forever. Despite all that I do publicly, my personal life is safely out of it which we aim to keep to ourselves. Otherwise, I’ve let a lot of things go that used to get to me. I don’t read much of the taste maker list stuff at all anymore. I find it mostly disingenuous obligation regurgitated from previous postings. I am confident and comfortable in what I do. And I’m too cool for some, not close to cool for others. It keeps things entertaining. And makes me feel that much more irreverent about what I do.

What matters is I get to do radio. While I’d love to do it all day everyday, it’s not what I worry about. Whether it’s doing a music show or this ridiculous foray into comedic talk radio, it’s where I am most at home. I’m good with it.

The rest of you can go fuck yourself.

I really enjoy saying that.

Happy New Year. I wish you the all the best that 2014 has for you. You just have to figure out how to find it. Let the rest go.

It’s better that way.

I’m only starting to understand that Kathy Bates line from Fried Green Tomatoes, “Face it girls, I’m older and I have more insurance.”
