give becky smith a job alert

OMFG, if you are in the ST LOUIS MO area, please give Becky Smith, superstar of the next issue of Hit it Or Quit It, a job. She is funny and skeptical, but not necessarily cynical, and can write like a hurricane, and lives amazing lives and goes to pro-choice activism workshops. Those are her job qualifications, or at least the ones I know about. Give her a job writing at Ms. magazine.
And in case you didn’t think this was another non-subtle embedded advertisement for HIT IT OR QUIT IT ISSUE 18: “MEN IN ROCK”–COMING VERY SOON! PREORDER HERE. The fruits of 5 am power-editing phone-conferencing between jessica, miles, j.r. and I, finally realized, inside is starring Becky’s supersharp review wildstyles, Matos’ probing, book-length Hold Steady Q&A, jessica’s miranda july interview, Cali “LA scene report” Dewitt, Amy Phillips and Cody Critcheloe of the SSION: in conversation, Jon “fuck a blog i’m out in the streets(/craigslist)” Caramanica’s amazing “Bedtime Stories with MOP” interview, Mia Clarke on “the posthumous queer mystique of dusty springfield,” Talib’s G-Unit MANifesto, Sean G.O.A.T. Fennessey writing an essay on technotronic’s Ya Kid K that broke my tender mind wide open and also some Fennessey Stones Throw NOW AGAIN reissuery Q&A = bigtime boners for funk fans, crate diggers, historians, and waxpoetics crowd, Britt Barton-Lindsay of equitable servitude fame
and the funniest reviews section ever including:
JR’s reviews “AS LOU RAWLS,” Jessica’s reviews “AS GEORGE PLIMPTON,” Miles’ reviews “AS HIMSELF” and… did I actually write anything in this issue?… I reviewed Guns n’ Roses Use Yr Illusion I & II, wrote tandem readings of Lil Wayne Gangsta Grizzilles vs. Destiny’s Child Destiny Fulfilled, and
VOCABULON SLANGTIONARY, THE BEST MOST HILARIOUS SLANGXICON YOU HAVE EVER READ.
Not to floss, but yo, Hit it Or Quit It is totally the best/deepest/funnest to read music magazine in america (and america’s only explicitly feminist music magazine (inclusive of men and hip-hop)). I guarantee we had more fun making it than pretty much anyone has ever had making a magazine, basically ever. I cannot fucking wait until it gets back from the printer, I JUST WANT TO TOUCH IT!
HOLY CRAP also on Becky Smith’s cool friends who do things like Different Kind of Dude Fest.
