I'll be pausing my Facebook page on January 2nd, 2021 to focus on writing, recording, creating visual art and cultivating more one-on-one relationships with my long-term collaborators and those who've supported my work over the years!  

If you'd like to continue witnessing the creative process, previewing works in progress (sneak-peek new poems, books, songs, videos, etc.), accompany me on different adventures (from penning poems to song writing, recording, thrifting, to choreography sessions, actual video shoots, to witnessing how record releases and book launches are done), click subscribe below!

2021 is my 20th Anniversary as a music journalist!  This being the case, I've teamed up with Peter Scholtes (City Pages, Seattle Weekly, Spin) and David Bayliss (Gris Literatura) to re-edit as well as archive my collection.

Over the course of my career, I've had one-of-a-kind opportunities to interview everyone from David Bowie, to members of Blue Man Group, The Suburbs, Prince & NPG, to Dr. Fink, Vanilla Ice, the other Dave (Navarro) and many, many more. 

  • I've gone back through the original interviews, restored what editors cut to fit layout, added a couple of things I originally omitted and followed my heart as a more mature writer.
  • Matched these with unpublished photographs from those who went on assignment with me (most frequently Dwayne Williams and James 'Milty' Milton).
  • By donating $3.50 a month, you read RE:PRINT (not to mention see never-before-published photographs of artists you love) as well as a new monthly interview first, and will receive the password here on the 15th of each month.  

Need a sample?  My 2002 Q&A with David Bowie is available now @:

Last, your donation enables not just myself, but my guest editor to take home a bit of pocket change during this very challenging time.  In other words- for $3.50 a month, you not only get to peek a week early, but are also *literally* supporting TWO creatives!

About Brooke R. Calder


          With Poems About Boys in progress on Kindle, the decision to shift the title of and rewrite In Praise of Men (henceforth known as Hello, Men!), and a new record label (Manual Control Records) to manage, I'd cherish the opportunity to cultivate more personal relationships with those who have supported my work - music, writing and otherwise - over the years.

And just so you know: $1 DOES make a difference!  It means that I not only get to finish a ton of writing projects, but ensures that immunocompromised me gets to stay home until the pandemic finally (hopefully!) passes.  

With Gratitude & Love,
