Who the heck is Gutterkitty, and why is she in my trash can?

Hello blog readers! Thanks for stopping by and resting your eyes here for a moment. Before I commence babbling, I'd like to thank Jody Gnant for introducing me to, sure to be the baddest mamma jamma ever, especially now that we're all up in it. [Insert green-smiley-face-with-purple-tongue-hanging-out emoticon here].

By way of introduction, my handle is Gutterkitty, and my real name is Niki D'Andrea. I'm the music editor at Phoenix New Times, a division of Village Voice Media, which makes me both revered and reviled. My musical tastes run the gamut, from classic rock and punk to hip-hop and classical. The only music I have a hard time listening to is extremely experimental, avant garde stuff. I have a coworker who listens to what I call "anarchy jazz," and it often sounds like (for lack of a better metaphor), geese getting sodomized by elephants.

I am not PC. This gets me into trouble sometimes, but it gets me into FUN more often. I am always out and about, whether hobnobbing with hip-hop moguls like Ludacris or hanging with Jody Gnant at crazy company parties. Jody and I will be taking a road trip to Los Angeles this weekend, so I'll be sure to blog from there. Instead of Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, it'll be like Fun & Loving in Los Angeles -- no imaginary bats flying at our vehicle, just good friends, good tunes, and good times (but if there ARE bats, I'll take a picture).

That's it for now. I've got a story on Super Bowl parties to finish. See you again in cyberspace soon.
