Favorite Musicians from The Midwest

The whole reason I wrote this post was that I discovered, in 2022, that The Violent Femmes are from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which completely blew my mind. For some reason, I assumed they were from England.

First, I want to clarify that I did not stop sharing because of an essay that Molly Ringwald wrote for The New Yorker. I've toyed with… Continue reading Screenplays Don’t Write Themselves
