nothing in here is true

    made up my mind, wont turn around 

    all the years of music.

    all the years of Christianity.

    then, not that long ago, comes Gospel music.

    pure American if ever there was a thing.

    black people singing, preaching, witnessing, combining the blues with choral hymns.

    but better.

    the god in the godfathermother of rock n roll.

    free.

    soulful.

    hopeful.

    you can invent a dance craze that comes and goes, you can invent a pocket fisherman, you can even invent a Pet Rock

    which are all brilliant. but how do you just come and create the most joyful noise, the most beautiful spiritual sound of all.

    the songs of slaves, not of their native tongue, a true light in the darkness

    a retelling of the greatest stories ever told.

    how you gonna do that without

    singing about it.

    We all should pray for Nardwaur the Human Serviette 

    the top three interviewers alive today are

    3. tony pierce

    2. howard stern

    nardwuar1. Nardwaur of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

    and nardwaur wins by a lot.

    thats the good news.

    the bad news is the outrageous and lovable journalist had a stroke on Saturday.

    Nardwaur was known for his deep research which led to right-on-the-money musical gifts like records from the artist’s chilhood

    or posters from concerts that meant a lot to them.

    over the last 30 years Nardwaur has interviewed the likes of

    Nirvana, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Odd Future, Henry Rollins,

    and so many punk, pop, and hip hop artists,

    on video,

    that after a while it becomes less about the artist and more about their reactions to his gifts.

    because i know you pray, when you do, please include Nardwaur in your blessings.

    Doot Doola Doot Doo Doot Doo!
