I think Laura handled that beautifully. And while my gut reaction is that I really really hate Kevin & Bean, I can't help but remember everyone fumbling with pronouns a year and a half ago and saying the wrong things while often trying to say the right thing (myself very much included). At the same time they're professional hosts who knew they were doing this interview in advance and could've done some research so maybe fuck them after all.

I wanted to cry when I saw James sitting there super silent.

He literally laughed twice and that was it.

I wrote something about that, but then deleted it again. (On the other hand it's not like he talked a lot in past interviews, but at leat he said a few words. Actually an interviewer should react in such a case and ask people like him directly.)

Two long-reads today.

First, from Grantland (!) on Laura and the record: http://grantland.com/features/a-true-trans-soul-rebel/

Second, from Consequence of Sound, on the band's now less-tethered relationship to Gainesville and Florida: http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/01/cover-story-against-me/

Pretty bummed that they are no longer a "Florida" band. That is probably a lot of the reason I got into them as much as I am. But I can't lie, it won't be long until I'm out of this batshit crazy state.

All of these recent write ups have been great. Can tell Laura understands herself more now than during last year's news shitstorm. Usually there are a lot of dud articles around the time a new album comes out, but these have all been informative with each one having new info.

For all the German speaking fans on here...there's an article about the band and TGDB in the VISIONS mag. If you're interested I could try to upload it in the next days...

From the editorial of VISIONS magazine mentioned:

Weil wir damit immer noch nicht genug Probleme hatten, rief dann unsere Fotografin Katharina aus New York an und berichtete, wie gerade ihr Titelshoot mit Against Me! ins Wasser gefallen war. Geplant waren Außenaufnahmen in den Straßen von Manhattan, doch die Band boykottierte die Idee, offenbar aus bloßer Unlust. Man solle das bitte nicht persönlich nehmen. So wurde aus Katharinas einstündiger Outdoorsession mit der Band ein kaum zehnminütiger Schnellschuss unter erschwerten Bedingungen – innen, bei fahlem Licht, mit einer missgelaunten Laura Jane Grace. Am Ende mussten wir auf ein Coverfoto eines anderen Fotografen ausweichen, der die Frontfrau auf einem weniger falschen Fuß erwischt hatte. Rockstar-Allüren? Against Me! sollten es besser wissen. Auch Britta Helm hatte bei ihrem Interview mit Grace zu kämpfen. „Ich bin zwischendurch etwas an ihr verzweifelt“, so Britta. „Sie mag Journalisten anscheinend nicht besonders und dachte wohl, ich will ihr was – dabei bin ich ihr größter Fan. Aber es ist natürlich auch schwierig, ihr das in einem halbstündigen Interview zwischen zig anderen zu vermitteln.“

I don't feel like translating everything, but a few things: It says that the band "boycotted" a photo shoot in the streets of Manhattan out of "pure reluctance". The band told the photograph not to take it personally. The latter then had to take indoor pictures of Laura who was "ill-humored" and the magazine had to use archive photos for their cover instead: "Rock stars with airs and graces? Against Me! should know better." The interviewer for the article also "sporadically became exasperated with her": "She apparently doesn't like journalists very much and thought that I had something against her."

They say that all other Against Me! members are "just means to an end" for Laura's music (in German at the beginning). While this might be true for some, I'd say it definitely isn't true for James. Already complained via twitter.  Evil or Very Mad

From twitter:
Tomorrow on the Morning Edition @LauraJaneGrace joins@SheilaColesCBC to talk about coming out as transgender. 102.5FM at 8:15.

Apparently, it's also gonna stream live on cbc.ca/sask

After reading the Quietus interview w/ Laura, which was classy but kinda heartbreaking towards the end, I think I'll skip this one. Personal
stuff might get too personal for a sap like me. *sigh*

Yeah, that one.

(Props for the interviewer for dealing with the TERF troll in the comment section. Those kind of "feminists" really make my blood boil.)

"The whole process of getting Transgender Dysphoria Blues out was so long and drawn out and we have a lot of ideas backed up behind it. We are flushing those out now a little, playing around at sound check and whenever we have the time and we are in the right vibe space to just sit around and jam together. The next record will be out a lot sooner in relative terms from White Crosses to this one." -Atom

Fingers crossed!

"There won’t be a Transgender Dysphoria Green coming out. Basically, some of the songs will get finished and get put out as B-sides for singles, but for the most part it will be on the new record."

VERY interesting...
