How Rolling Stones Suzy Exposito Made History with Her Bad Bunny Cover Story
"Makes a good celebrity profile? Great when I don't like about some celebrity profiles is like the ones that that come off like being a little too. There's a word for it. Like ingratiating or like defying people in a way. That's is so smarmy to me for me. I broke my own rule in this story. Actually because I usually don't talk about myself at all and profiles. I think that that can kill the buzz a lot of time. I don't like when people start reflecting on their own lives in the middle of somebody else's profile I usually find it distracting. I think the point where I broke. That rule was when I talked about disclosing to him like my sexuality and I could you identify as bi. I do identify as bisexual. Yeah and I have for the last ten years at least openly and so I chose to have this part of the conversation. You know closet because I'm still at my grandmother's house and that's still something. It's like a sore subject for my family. It just is and like but at this point. I'm like thirty years old. I'm like what are y'all GonNa to do ground me like spear also hiding in a closet. Yeah I had to really reckon with the fact that I'm still worried about making my family uncomfortable and I think a lot of US still a lot of us can be like what like forty five sixty instill never be able to really discuss that side of ourselves with families like I have so many people in my family who are also queer. It's just they don't talk about it. You know every once in a while somebody has a roommate. That's like a common thing or somebody like brings their friend to Christmas. You know it's coded and that's just how things are in my family and in so many other families. I waited until I was in a serious relationship with a woman to come out because at that point I was like. I don't know I knew how I felt for many years by. I didn't even take it seriously until I was in a relationship. That's when I came out to my mom. She was super supportive. And like really sweet about it. This would have been ten years ago. An also like anyone who is queer also knows that like coming out is not. It's not like a one and done kind of thing you'll spend like the rest of your life coming out over and over again like I did my article. That's just like one of the many times and I also was so struck by an exchange that you had on twitter because in addition to interviewing buddy you interviewed a home Mulu of celebrities including Ricky Martin and it evoked someone to respond that like there was always a lot of homophobia around Ricky Martin. It wasn't yes just when he came out that he experienced that homophobia that those of us who sort of knew about Ricky Martin were exposed to that like it was always there and it was always a subject of conversation and that that predates the coming out very often. Yes it dies. Link oftentimes like you'll get bullied for being like any kind of queer. You'll kept bullied for many years before you even own up to it. Why did you choose to weave that into this story? It was something that I discussed with my editor because it was like after. I did that you know like when I when I brought my computer in the closet. I was like a like a met my in house lake. I don't want her like listening to this conversation. It's so funny. I love her so much but she like she liked to listen to some of my interviews for one because I was speaking in Spanish. That's kind of rare for my family. They don't they. Don't really speak Spanish with me so I think that she was kind of entertained by hearing me analyst like God. I can't do this but then when I thought about it a little bit more on like it is because I still can't talk about this around my family I just can't and what bad bunny did with his drag video. It was so powerful. Because I really don't think I I mean Ricky Martin is gay. I don't think Ricky Martin would have gotten away with that I really don't he presents as very masculine and if he tried doing that even even this year like if he tried to do that with people really accept it. It's like I think to this day. Like people prefer gay men to be masculine in like street passing or whatever. That's a very real thing so for someone like bad bunny who's in a very secure relationship with a woman. And WHO's the most popular rapper slash singer in Latin America right now and end in the US for someone like him to go out on a limb and dress in drag as like a show of solidarity with Queer People? I was like he's doing this so I don't have to feel this way anymore. And so that's when I decided to set the scene. We stayed in the closet for like an hour and just talked about. We talked about gender and sexuality in like why he started caring about all this because he really doesn't have to care and the fact that he goes out there and says like I'm not okay with this is

History in Five Songs 47: Bands of Individuals
"So this is episode forty seven. We are going to be calling this bands of individuals. I couldn't think of a snappier title. But this basically explains this concept and it's actually a pretty elevated concept If you don't mind me saying this is something I've always felt and it's an episode. I've been burning to do So let's just get to it. I mean essentially One funny thing about this episode is it's not very heavy metal or hard rock. Although I am going to be mentioning a lot of bands that are hard. Rock and heavy metal but my examples per se are not particularly in that field. But I am going to end with a with a classic heavy metal band so So all shall be forgiven. I hope by the end of this. I might mention a few Honorable Mentions Myself All right so we're GONNA do this one a little bit differently. I hope it doesn't go on too long. I probably will shorten up when it comes to the actual entries but I have a little bit of a along intro here so I went to you the fine listeners. And and said hey give me some examples of this and it's kind of funny The example started flowing in and I'm going to read some of those in in a second But what I realized when I was reading these examples is I'm not too clear on what my concept is for this. I hope by the end of this episode and when you hear examples you're GonNa understand what has always been stuck in my brain for decades essentially about bands. That are like this why I think there are certain bands truly truly truly like this. So let's just get on with that so I sent. I sent off a facebook cry for help here So what did I say here so So here's a really cool concept that I'm at four at need one. More as I said bands of individuals and ecosystem is created with a clear north South East and West. It's an ecosystem that has not one world but four five teams that comprise a complex world. I've thought this for years about these four bands. But do you get my drift strode. A few band names and if one of them just hits me like a lightning bolt. I'll know it but I don't want to explain further or debated. Let's save that for the episode. Only one of my choices is remotely a metal band. So that's what I wrote And yet just to explain a little more before. I read some of these Entries the idea here is that these bands create almost like You know you think of a little Snow Globe that you shakeup and there. There's the snowflakes in there. There's this enclosed world that is a weird world but very importantly this world is not one that ends up being kind of a unified sounding thing that a lot of other band's sound like it is a world unto itself that's number one but number two it does have an east west North and south. I mean it. Basically sounds like a world of individual players or Feifdoms that is making this up so doesn't sound like particularly like a unified whole. It sounds like a band or a record or song that you listened to where you can't get the members themselves out of your head when you're listening to it. You don't think the band name you think all of these original members jumbled up together at once. I think that explains it probably pretty well but let me tell you quickly and what I'm going to do here is I'm going to leave out. The bans That were suggested that are actually my choices anyways. And I'm just going to go through some of these very quickly dispelled the notion of why didn't include the more. How they they? Almost clay came close. Oh so we've got vanya Derek. I mentioned led Zeppelin Queen Cream and Russia. Okay all of those are pretty close but no cigar. They had certain things about them. That were almost two unified Long Story But those ones are are all pretty close but let's see Jacob Tannahill said sons of Apollo Mister Big Asia. Any one of them fit the bill and I actually almost thought Asia that I would include But Yeah I think he's getting the point here Sons of Apollo definitely. You know the big the big You know important band members. Asia supergroup The police New York Doll says Thomas Hackney also the pretenders I would say no on the pretenders I would. That wouldn't have come to mind. I wouldn't New York dolls that come to mind. Police is one of my honorable mention so with that band. You know you are thinking This this chicken scratch sort of textured a guitar playing from Andy. You know base. I don't think you think of sting so much base but you think of that vocalist and then also I with Stewart Copeland. You definitely get a unique drummer. That is a distraction. I mean you're thinking of him when you're hearing these police songs so yes that's a good example of what we're getting at here. Augusta Garcia parade. As mentioned the clash. I would say no I don't. It doesn't really fit the bill here. Thomas Hackney comes up with AKS little bit. That's kind of cool. One Eagles Blazed Barshop. Says no I wouldn't say so Going to leave Well no I'm not going to leave this one because I kick them out. Pat conners has fleetwood Mac. I actually was include fleetwood Mac but I couldn't see myself playing a fleetwood Mac song as one of our five choices here but definitely you get the yet. This is a perfect example. And like I say I was one of mine that was on the at the top of my head. You get. Basically these. Three distinct vocalists are all with their personalities and their baggage in their own solo albums. The whole bit Stevie Nicks Christie. Make Christine mcvie his Christine. Yeah and Lindsey Buckingham All very distinct vocalists. And you also get You Know Mick. Fleetwood is the is kind of the the patriarch of the ban. But you had get this very stripped down drumming John mcvie Idaho. Don't really think of him too much in this but Lindsay as well you think of a very distinct Sort of I said chicken. Scratch already with Andy Summers. Chicken scratch makes a lot more sense with Lindsay So again you're listening to fleetwood Mac song or a few in a row and you're thinking oh when's this focus gonNA sing or that one or oh. They're they're doing this together And then and then. Lindsey gives you this very stark guitar Solo And and you get this very sort of straight line B line kind of Feel to a of their songs so that is a ban when you're listening to them. I can't get the members individually out of their heads hence bands of individuals. Okay
Live - Throwing Copper
"Hello everybody. Welcome to audio judo. I'm Matthew I'm kyle. Thanks for joining us today. Indeed Al How're you doing? I'm doing pretty good. How are you doing well? That's good it's good to hear. Superman does good. I do well very nice. Thanks thirty rock. We got some business I do. Oh good let's talk earlier this week. We were lucky enough to talk to One of my musical idols. Fish the ex lead singer of a progressive rock band from that. Was that still around now. But was very popular in the eighties Very continues to popularity in Europe not so much in the states The band's name was Meridian fish is about to release his final studio album later this year and he was gracious enough to join us from his home in Scotland and chat for about forty five minutes or so. It was great Since our timeline might be out of wack currently That episode mice most likely aired before this one did so if you are joining us for the first time to listen to this episode. I encourage you to go back. And listen to that one as well Gave us some great info about the current state of the music industry regarding re Corona Virus. Yeah and some other super stuff as well as well as cooking. Lovely lamb dinner for his mother while he was on the phone with us so that was a great interview. I really enjoyed it. That was fun is fun. Talk to once. You can understand what he's saying. I'm just kidding. That's surprisingly had no problem with that. Just a couple words yet. A Scottish before we had talked to matthew was like Ilyas a Scottish brogue in his voice and I was like okay. So I'm really going to pay attention. I picked it right up. I don't know how good I mean. It wasn't fancy than me. I guess that's good. Yeah there was only one time where I was kind of like. What was that word but that I think we both looked at each other. Like what the heck was that word but we got ammos great. We got it through context. I believe yeah also Again since I don't know exactly when this will be airing I'm not entirely sure where we will be. In the Corona Virus Saga Twenty Twenty. Either way the crisis it has affected everyone including independent artists trying to carve out a living back in October. We interviewed a band of Kentucky. Named the cold stares they're great ban really wonderful guys And this crisis hit them. Quite hard. Cancelled all their gigs. That they had lined up for the summer as well as putting a stop to some of their teaching gigs for the time. Being since most of those are done in person they put together a special t shirt that they are selling for twenty five bucks to help supplement their lost other. I bought a couple And if you'd like to buy one or just have a look at them Encourage you to go to their merchandise site. It's the cold stares dot square dot site. Anything you can do to help out would be appreciated that includes paying for some downloads. Listen their music or whatever but your independent artists out. There is most likely struggling big time so if you want to listen to them or you have one in particular that you enjoy listening to throw him a couple of downloads. Do whatever you to help them out because this is a very difficult time for everybody. Yes it is. That's all I have for old business. So this week's choice. Nineteen ninety four album throwing copper by the group live just so we're clear. This was one of my favorite bands from that period. And this record is probably my top fifteen. Those lists are always really difficult kind of weird to make. I'm not saying that this is one of the top fifteen records ever made or that. I even think this is one of the best top fifteen records that I could listen to. It's just one of those records that I go back to a few months and listen to us to have a permanent place in my multi. Cd Changer and it's one of those records at shows up in my top plays when spotify. Geezer your list at the end of the year. So was it trunk mounted multi play. Cd player it was. That's nice. It's very ah Nice. He had a removable one as well. That was an different car. But Julio that was a fancy with the little handle how Mr Rich Roller Rare. It's all it's all for the music so live. The band consists of four guys. Chad gracey on drums Chad Taylor on guitar to Chad's a Patrick Dole Heimer on bass and Ed Kowalczyk on vocals and guitar. They have been together since the mid eighties when they were all in their middle teens. Typical suburbanite garage band They were founded in York. Pennsylvania originally called public affection but renamed themselves live in the nineteen eighties right before they got a record deal. Oh they regularly played. Cbgb's in New York. Those concerts help secure their first record deal. Nineteen Ninety one nineteen ninety-one New Year's eve of Nineteen ninety-one to be exact. They released their first album mental jewelry. And that was the first I ever heard of them or saw them to be more precise oh I saw them and heard them for the first time on. Mtv's twenty minutes It was for song called operation. Spirit the tyranny of tradition and it was very direct for me when I first thought it caught me off guard. It was very jarring so I was at that time. Nineteen year old kid about three months away from meeting my future wife smoking. A lot of we'd drink a lot of beer very angry and confused about my life and prospects I've been raised. Catholic went to Catholic school and was jaded mad about a lot of things I had been raised to believe. We're true. My parents were devout Catholics. My was a permanent deacon in the Catholic Church which in Catholicism is as close as you can get to being a priest without actually becoming one more than anything because he had been married. I my mom also had a certificate in theology from the seminary which as close as you can get to being a nun without actually being one more than anything because she had been married. I pattern here. So they taught classes on sexuality and marriage so yeah it was weird. Oh boy that's very weird however that was fun as was very strange but they were not strict. Like you would expect. Yeah I had to go to church every Sunday But I still watch rated movies. My parents drank. They knew I did too so it was fine but I was angry because it all seemed like a big scam to me And I realized that we're kind of far afield from music but it's kind of relevant so when I was a kid I was really bought into this charade I was an altar boy sang in the choir played. Drums and a host of different events at the church went to Catholic school and I believed what I was being taught because that was what I was raised to believe but then I got into high school and I started forming the person I was going to become and began to think for myself I started. Look things look things differently right? I went to a pretty liberal Catholic highschool and in our religion classes which were daily especially towards senior year. We were encouraged at some point to explore different religions. I'm sure it was under the guise of comparison shopping but it opened a lot of is because other religions or spiritual practices made a lot more sense than the pomp and tradition of Catholicism especially like during Easter or something.
Making music in isolation: Indigenous artist creates new work during pandemic
"Of all what happened to you back in February so I ended up having a stress. Inducing takes a lot of work to be an independent artists to be an independent artists in the US. You know doing the level of visibility and lack of opportunities so you know I manage myself. I produce an engineer my own music so it just takes a lot of work to do what I do and for the first time in my life I hit a limit physically and ended up having a I ever stress induced seizure of my life and I. I got taken by ambulance to a hospital on the side of Chicago. Close to where. I'm based and ended up having one of the worst experiences of medical racism I've ever faced in my life as a native person so The hospital had assumed I was. I was on hard drugs. Pcp in that's what had caused the seizure and caused my state Even though relatives were there telling them otherwise you know they just assume the worst. They saw my Ceremony Scars Khotan do some piercing ceremonies. They saw some some of the ceremony scars on my body and had assumed it was self mutilation and then I had come to in the hospital and I was intimated in. I wasn't supposed to be conscious but I ended up coming to out of the sedatives and I panicked and freaked out. I felt like I was suffocating. And they mark me with combative disorder strapped me into bed with locked restraints for a couple of days and so I went in for a seizure and when I came to a couple of days later and came out of it I actually ended up having to stay in the hospital for a whole week to undo the damage that they had done to my muscles in my body from shooting with so many sedatives and from strapping the into a bed. Like I felt like in look like I got ran over by truck so so yeah it was just. It was a really Violent experience for me. I came out of that. Just just a couple of weeks before the pandemic kit. So you know I was kind of kind of a sense of recovery already. And then we all got thrown into a tailspin after that And how did you process that that you put that into your music? Yeah you know. It's it was the only thing I knew how to do so. My music journey started when I was a very young boy and I started playing music and writing songs to heal and process my world and process my experiences. And and so you know to this day. I'm still doing that so I came out of that We're just a lot of trauma even spiritual emotional physical. I'd never really suffered before all at once and it was a little overwhelming and so I did what I what I knew how to do and I turned to my music. I'm working on a project right now album that I'm dedicating to my mother. It's called INA. Which is the LAKOTA word for mother? a lot of songs were were born out of that experience but also what was born out of that. Experience is my first ever flute album. I'm also going to release this month. It's called the along wet too. Which is the Makoto phrasing for Spring Song so I composed four songs after that experience? Because you know I'm not fluent in my language Khotan learning and so I really only speak English and English. Just doesn't capture. Sometimes what I fail and on I found when I just put it all into on native flute. Which is one of the instruments. I play because I also produced music. I but I've never really put out an an album as just a musician purely music. And so I. I kind of turned to that because it was the only thing I could do to express you know a lot of what I was experiencing so I went outside and recorded these songs outside just before the pandemic and just before we went into lockdown and recorded a liar. The songs on my home reservation outside of the House that I grew up in so I'm looking forward to release in those two project soon here and like I said they were born out of that experience. Music has always been a tool for me to heal tool for me to process and very fortunate to be able to share that process and that healing with people through music. So when you say that you used music to process the experience what kinds of And the flute which is really beautiful. How what kinds of lyrics did you find yourself writing in? What kind of You know genre. Did you play in for this album? Yes so So the the album that I'm dedicating my mother. Ina is going to be everything from hip pop to some acoustic hip hop because I also play. You know several acoustic instruments but the the food album along wet to is. Actually the music is just purely native flu. And I'll give you an example. One of the songs on there is a call calling your spirit back song and that was rooted out of a a Just A LAKOTA. Teaching we have of calling your spirit back. You know. It's a daily practice but especially if you go through something traumatic. We're taught to call your spirit back because your spirit can leave you. Even infraction are pieces and so when I came out of the hospital I really felt like my spirit left me and so I felt like I needed to do more than just call my spare back in the traditional sense. I felt like I needed to write a song to do that. And never have I ever had a song just being my head and it was in its entirety. And that's how this song came to me. I picked up my foot as soon as I got home. I stepped outside and What you hear on the album is what came out the first time I it and that's never happened before you know usually have to work on songs. Sometimes I'll tweak songs for months sometimes years but this song was already there You know and that will give you an example of the type of songs that are on this album but I also am recording the stories of how the songs were born in English. So sort of what I'm doing here. I kind of shared the experience that that that birthday song so with each song. I'm going to also show the story of where it came from and doing that I. It's kind of a LAKOTA thing too. In a lot of indigenous cultures. They kind of share the story where the song came from before they share it so I hope to do that with some of my upcoming project says well because I think the stories I also just as important as the music so really you haven't slowed down at all since recovery. It's like no no not at all. I think I just had to get creative. And how how I kept going you know. Fortunately I am doing my passion. I'm doing what I love. And I'm very blessed to do what I love. Even if it is stressful and a lot of work but every day I wake up and get to play music and make a living off of music. I feel like I'm living my gene. You know And you're not just working on on your own music. You're also sort of rippling out this. This idea of community many others and Indian countries while as yourself are feeling these These effects. What specifically are you doing to help communities through this pandemic Definitely so I'm a part of this Collective this this artists collective of Young indigenous artists around my age We're called the dream warriors and we actually formed just out of necessity in need We were looking for management for young indigenous artists. Just like a you know some sort of network support system for us to find gigs and kind of create a support system for each other and we. We couldn't really find one that already existed so we just banded together as as peers as relatives and and and created a artists collective. So we really use this collective as A vehicle to create support systems for native artists. That weren't there for us and one of the ways. We've been able to do that in this. Pandemic is a webinars. So we we we so far have done to webinars where we ended up raising over several thousand dollars in these webinars to disperse to native families in need and we put out a call and we had over hundreds of native families across the reservations. We come from and also communities beyond the communities we come from requesting assistance financial need and. I don't know if y'all are paying attention to the news and stats coming out of the states but native communities are being left out of a lot of the statistics and the numbers being recorded about. How this pandemic affecting community so we're left out of a lot of funding as well so it was really great to be able to use our collective energy and our art to to to do these webinars to generate thousands of dollars worth of funding to disperse to hundreds of families in need and we also had Donors match some of the funding. So this was. This is only the beginning for in this sort of This new creative way of of helping communities and using what we love to do that. That's amazing thank you for being such a wonderful bright light in your community. Thank you Rosanne. I appreciate it frank. Wall is Chang who Lakota rapper from the Rosebud. Indian RESERVATION IN SOUTH DAKOTA IS. New Album will be out later this summer.
