From an early age, society teaches us to find fear and shame in failure. Here’s why society has it all wrong.
And, to show that we walk the walk, a fun fact: we tried recording this on the rooftop of Center 615, but our camera mic shorted out. Thus, a failed first attempt led to an up-close-and-personal #UMCRealTalk experience!
Get Some Real Talk!
Rofo Audio has been churning out top-notch rock and roll for about as long as we’ve had a publication with “Underground” in the name. It feels like just yesterday that I interviewed frontman Raymond Short on an earlier iteration of The Quinn Spinn about their debut record, Now Broadcasting — but that was about four and a half years ago!
Nevermind trying to squeeze just 20 songs into a “Best Of” compilation at the end of the month. We’re having trouble narrowing it down right now.

So far, we’re digging Zeroes, the latest EP from Good Friends of the Show, Foxtrot & the Get Down.

“I’ve got to find my way to my new normal.”
A product of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, “New Normal” — the new single from St. Petersburg, Russia native Max Viner — frames the isolation we’ve all experienced to a degree in a new, hopeful light.

In case you haven’t heard, we’re filling the weeks without an episode of our official podcast, The Quinn Spinn, with QuaranTimes, a live stream broadcast featuring our OG Quinn Spinn family. Certainly, it’s a different side of the show, meant to keep things fun and light in these strange times of the ‘rona.
On this edition of QuaranTimes, Scotty Rock introduced us to his friend, Z-Bro, who brought plenty of fresh ideas to what wound up being an unpredictable episode. We get to know the new member of the family, continue the previous episode’s raging Kool-Aid Man debate, and even had time to get a little thoughtful and serious about relationships and self-assessment.
Did we mention that there’s also Stupid News, Something For Your Ears, Feelin’ Good with JD, and the return of L’s Inappropriate Word? Yup — it’s all here!
We’re a little late to the party on Devin Renee‘s latest single, “Deadman Walkin’.”
With that said, we’re glad we’ve finally arrived!

Imagine having all of the success in the world. You have so much money, that you’ll never be able to spend it all. Your fame has made you a household name, and to those on the outside, you appear to be free of burdens…
…but on the inside, the cost has been unimaginable.
