‘Nicks Picks

With so much content on the site (and, admittedly, some of it a bit inelegantly organized, stay tuned for changes in 2008), I feel that many of our monthly contributors are occasionally overlooked. To that end, I have selected one article from each of our stalwarts that I encourage you to check out….

JESSE JARNOW

I have a soft spot for this one, in part due to my work on Wetlands Preserved, coming to theaters in March (which Jesse worked on as well so this is not a totally misplaced plug)

"The Gentrification Tax (A Reasonable Proposal)"

DAVID STEINBERG

This article generated more email than any other column on the site this year.

"Scenes From the Class Struggle in the Parking Lot"

JOHN ZINKAND

Another proposal worth considering.

"A Nominal Fee"

ANDY MILLER

Our only columnist to make me blush, although not with this piece.

"I Know You Rider (And All Your Secret Desires)"

MIKE GREENHAUS

Mike’s discovery of Win Butler’s high school yearbook entry provided quality phone fodder as well.

"After the Gold Rush"

MIKE GRUENBERG

I like the way Mike blends his affection for the music of his youth (1960’s) with an eye and and a ear for contemporary developments.

"It Was 50 Years Ago Today…"

PAT BUZBY

Read this piece and send along your own list

"Reasons"

DAN ALFORD

Each month I’ll read Dan’s seek out Dan’s recommendations.

"Three from the Archives, Plus One"

I’m going to offer a second suggestion from Dan, as this one is atypical of his monthly contributions but worth checking out.

"Ornette Coleman’s Sound Grammar"

RANDY RAY

Randy often offers an engaging mix of personal revelation and broader musical/social commentary.

"Balderdash Bliss"

EVAN WINIKER

Evan reviews films each month. While many of these have been blockbusters, this movie you may have missed.

"The Assassination of Jesse James by The Coward Robert Ford"

ROB JOHNSON

Here’s hoping we’ll hear more from Rob in 2008.

"Wanee"

ANNABEL LUKINS

I am always happy to offer up this Jammy-award winner’s perspective. You should check out her wedding column but I think this one best captures the spirit of her monthly efforts.

"Musicians, Magicians and George In the Jam Room"

DAN GREENHAUS

Here is Dan’s response to David’s column above.

"A Response to the Class Struggle"

JOHN WHITLER

Every month John offers thoughts on the greening of the music industry. They are well worth your time.

"A Band’s Actions Can Be As Loud as Their Music"

DAVID VANN

I enjoy Dave Vann’s images. He’ll be back with us in full force next year.

"A Baker’s Dozen: A Benefit for Houseman, The Independent, SF 7/26-27/2007"

HEADCOUNT

Now that primary season is underway, I’m hoping we’ll hear more from HeadCount.

"A Calling"

TAYLOR HILL

Wherefore art thou, Taylor?

"Death and Consequence: Three Things I’ve Learned About Interviewing"
