Rocks Off is what a good friend likes to call "last caveman to the fire," meaning whenever some form of new technology comes along, he procrastinates as long as possible before embracing it. However, once he does come around, it's with guns blazing - for example, he's a texting fiend (especially after a few drinks) and has finally just about mastered this whole cameraphone thing.
So even though he has no idea exactly what it is or what real purpose it serves besides one more online distraction at work - and trust him, there's already plenty of those - he has taken the advice of several friends, colleagues and acquaintances and set up a Twitter account at www.twitter.com/hprocksoff. If you're so inclined, please click and sign up to "follow" him, whatever that means. Maybe you can help explain why this seems to be so important these days.
To help things run smoother, Rocks Off has also set up a brand-new blog-only email address at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send posters/flyers, news tips, MP3s, show announcements and anything else you think may help us keep Houston up to speed with what's going on musically. See you on the Interweb!
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.
