Be sure to check out this interview Rocks Off's Dusti Rhodes did for our sister blog Hair Balls with king of the Skyline Network and Sammy Award arbiter Ryan "adr" Clark (right, who, we don't care what he says, is kind of a pimp... just not the transacting-sex-for-money type).
"I was mostly just taking inside jokes about music in Houston and extrapolating them out into ridiculous full-length articles," adr tells Rhodes on how he got into the Skyline business. "At some point, writing that way gets really old and never as funny as you want it to be, so I just started writing about music in Houston, instead of just trying to be funny." - Chris Gray
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
