R.I.P. Jay Reatard

Tribute this weekend, probably.

1/17/10 EDIT:

Too much homework to take the time to write a bunch of stuff, sorry. Maybe in a few months when the tragedy has sunk deeper into our consciousness. Jay was one of the most talented artists to release music in my lifetime and his body of work will continue to serve as an inspiration to me, as it has for the three years I've spent worshipping at its altar. The Hipinion thread about his death is an embarrassment and Chris Ott is a colossal wiener.

Just listen to the records.

Yeah, I'm job hunting right now and writing about music is just depressing when I can't even get a job as a dishwasher. RIP Jay Reatard

You are the one who put me into Jay Reatard. When you posted about Watch them fall, what you wrote (as often) made me want to listen to it, thanks again for that !

I'm really glad to here that.

Thank YOU.
