What do Pitchfork and Fire & Rose have in common?

To find out, see the recent news article at Pitchfork Media about Neko Case’s essay in the latest issue of Poetry magazine. After some choice quotes from the whimsical essay, you will see the following: “Thanks to reader David Congdon for the tip!”

That’s right. My first news tip for Pitchfork. As long as other musicians write in Poetry, you can expect more tips from me in the future. I’ve got a corner on that market.

A Blogging Hiatus

I have been away for the past week working on Ph.D. applications and papers for professors, and I have concluded that I will need to take a break from this blog for the next month or so. I have tried to be consistent in my blogging for the past couple years, but unfortunately I have reached a period in my life where certain things must be sacrificed. Sadly, this includes The Fire & the Rose.

I will resume regular blogging no later than the new year, and hopefully before then. Between now and then I cannot guarantee any new posts. If I do post anything, it will be by God’s grace alone!

I do hope F&R does not fade into oblivion as a result of this hiatus. I promise to return in full force soon. For now, I must attend to more important matters.
