Nice, unexpected Q&A with Steve Albini on a poker website

Rachel writes: "This is a link to Steve Albini answering all manner of blunt questions on the 2+2 poker forum. Why? I dunno. Fake? I dunno. Awesome? Yes." One commenter does point out that Steve already has a very active forum at his Electrical Audio site. Of course, the finest Albini text is his wonderful The Problem with Music, which you've probably already read.


Comments:
I read somewhere else that he had become an online poker addict.
 
The "problem with music" article is really wonderful, but my favorite piece of Albini's is the final Big Black tour diary, from 1987, i think it was?

any musician who has ever been on tour will definitely enjoy reading it.
 
It certainly sounds like him,I believe it. Cool guy
 
Check out www.Stringlinks.blogspot.com

The site was created so guitar players could have an easy to use link of guitar string venders, all in one place!

Just click on a link to compare string prices. A new window will open from each link; so you don't lose you place!

Stringlinks, the easiest way to compare prices on Guitar Strings!
