Grandy - you are the definition of the term hipster. You obviously believe yourself way too cool for the likes of Jane's Addiction - though, even in their old age, they'd whip your ass at any endeavor you'd dare compare yourself against - including music critic. More often than not I read your posts and think, "this guy's writings are only relevant to his mother and his oh-too-hipster friends." Not what I'd call a rousing endorsement for a prominent music writer in a world-class music market like Seattle.
I actually did a little reporting on this important matter. Turns out, Mr. Grandy isn't too cool for Jane's Addiction. "'Mountain Song' is kinda a jam tbh (sic)," he said in an email.
