This week I got to do two things I tend to avoid (because I find them difficult and am fundamentally lazy): I reviewed 1:) a concert and 2:) an art exhibit. Why are reviews hard, you ask? Well, for me at least, I find the dual challenge of conveying a production experience alongside an aesthetic entity–without sounding as lame as the beginning of this sentence–really stressful. Also, it seems critics like to use a lot of the same language when describing the same things, whereas I like to make up my own spastic vocab as I go along.

Don’t tell the editors, yeah?
