Panic! at the Disco drummer Spencer Smith wrote a blog detailing his recent struggles with drug addiction. He entered treatment last fall and is now clean.
For the past 4 and a half years I’ve been battling addiction. Well, to be honest, I’ve really been battling it for the last two years.

These days, maybe we’d record a record and release it right after we were done and not have any set up, because I don’t know how to do these things anymore. It all changes so much every day.

Everyone knows vinyl sales are up across the board, but did you know people aren't listening to them and labels are increasing the cost? Probably figured out the later, and I hope you're not one of the first.
A simple analysis gives the appearance that overpriced vinyl records are not generally being bought by kids for their rediscovered fidelity. From Williamsburg to Portland, our musical choices define some part of our identities and displaying these choices, along with our apparent respect for the value of music, makes our identities non-virtual—i.e., real—as well.
