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 originally cut to fit layout, added back a couple of things and followed my heart as a more mature writer.
  • I then matched these with unpublished photographs from those who went on assignment with me (most frequently Dwayne Williams and James 'Milty' Milton).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 first (not to mention see never-before-published photographs of artists you love) 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 @: inpraiseofmen.com/reprint

Last, your donation enables not just myself, but my guest editor and a photographer 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 a tiny village of creatives!

About Brooke R. Calder

Welcome! 

          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!), music projects nearing fruition (The Red Hour arrives February) and a new record label (Manual Control Records) to run, I'd cherish the opportunity to cultivate more personal relationships with those who support me, complete a backlog of projects and bring you- my friends, fellow music fans, bookworms and creators- new content each month.

And just so you know: $1 actually does make a difference!  This means that I not only get to create more content, but also ensures that I'm kept safe from COVID, and won't need to return to a potentially life-threatening job until the vaccine becomes more widely available.

With Much Gratitude & Love,
Brooke
