Interview : Everything In Slow Motion

I was lucky enough to have the privilege of interviewing Shane Ochsner, the man behind Everything In Slow Motion. Shane is a great conversationalist, and I felt like I really got to know him during our 80 minute chat. He was by far the longest phone interview I’ve ever conducted, but he was also the most personable guy. Maybe it’s because we’re both living in North Dakota, but probably because he is the most genuine, humble person I’ve ever…

Questions for Everything In Slow Motion

Tomorrow morning I’ll be interviewing Shane Ochsner, the man behind amazing post-hardcore band Hands and now his latest project Everything In Slow Motion. I know it’s short notice, but I think we can come up with some interesting questions before then. If you have any questions for Shane, put them in the comments below, as many as you want. The interview will be posted later in the week.

Everything In Slow Motion released their debut album “Phoenix” via Facedown Record…

God Gave Rock and Roll to You: Part 11 – When I Learn To Sing

When I Learn to Sing
The process of finding a front man for a rap-rock band is no simple task. There are many stringent qualifications that must be met. You need someone who can hype up a crowd, rhyme words at a fifth grade level, look good in parachute pants and a backwards hat… and maybe even sing. Matters became complicated to an even further extent in the case of Christian rap-rock bands circa the year…

Rock The Party

Around the turn of the century a new genre of music would see a meteoric rise in popularity. Teenage boys were stoked. Music critics were not. This genre would come to be known as “rap-rock”. Rap-rock was exactly what it claimed to be, a mixture of hip-hop and alternative rock or metal, usually played with down-tuned guitars and loads of testosterone fueled angst.

Although pre-internet North Dakota was always a couple of years behind the rest of…

We’re A Band

I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. I’ve known way too many people who have said, “This is the year! I’m going to do P90X!” Most of them get up at 6:00 AM the next day, struggle through the first routine, go to work and exuberantly tell people “I’m doing P90X! It’s so hard! I’m so awesome!”, go to bed that night tired out but with a sense of accomplishment… and then wake up at 6:00 AM…

Let It Begin

I’ve always been one of those guys who shakes his presents. I’ve also been known to ask clever, probing questions in an attempt to sucker a gift giver into accidentally letting an all important hint slip out about what I might be receiving. To be completely honest, I probably find just as much (if not more) satisfaction in figuring out what a gift is before opening it as I do in the actual gift itself. It’s rare…

Best Kept Secret

It’s hard to keep anything hidden for long in a town with a population of less than 2,000 people. You know who’s at the post office by looking at the cars parked out front. If you are walking down the street and see someone working in their yard, chances are you’ll know each other by name. If a kid gets a speeding ticket (or God forbid a minor) it seems like the lady at the…
