Tuesday: Hot Music Nerd Panel Action!!!

Apparently, somebody somewhere decided that I'm some sort of music blogging expert or something. So, I'm going to be on this panel at the Columbia journalism school on Tuesday talking about "pop criticism and cred in the era of MP3s, zines and blogs." Want to see me make a complete fool of myself in front of a bunch of V.I.P. rock critic dudes and the singer from TV on the Radio? Now's your chance!
