TMS: John Roderick, Chris Wetherell, and John Vanderslice

The last week or so of The Merlin Show has featured three fun interviews with independent musicians -- talking about Macs, handling email, and figuring out how to get paid. Stop by for visits with John Roderick, Chris Wetherell, and John Vanderslice (or view the videos right here, after the jump...)

John Roderick

John from The Long Winters brings his surly but lovable wisdom to my backyard, clarifying how he's like a building contractor and why he has to make sure no one tries to screw him on copper pipe. (Note: Contains strong language and frank discussion of show business) [View full show notes]

Chris Wetherell (part 2/2)

Chris from Citizens Here and Abroad and Dealership returns to talk more about how bad (no, really bad) he is with email and how surprisingly little dough a band makes from touring. [View full show notes]

John Vanderslice (part 3/3)

JV returns to talk about how to take a Mac on tour as well as why he stopped using Apple's Address Book and Mail.app for his 5,000-fan mailing list. [View full show notes]

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
