Converge + Hard Drugs + Cupcake & Retarded Holmes = Q&A With Cardboard City Artist Benn Grim

September 30, 2010

alchemy [ˈælkəmɪ]

n pl -mies 1. (Chemistry / Alchemy) the pseudoscientific predecessor of chemistry that sought a method of transmuting base metals into gold, an elixir to prolong life indefinitely, a panacea or universal remedy, and an alkahest or universal solvent.

Ben Grippo (aka Benn Grim) is an Alchemist. Not in the sense of turning base metal into gold, but from being in a very dark, drug addicted place, to a now up and coming hip hop artist. He has no quams about laying out all of his trials and tribulations, often with an excellent mix of humor, and at the same time letting people know he’s not to be fucked with. 

I’ve known Ben for quite some time, and regardless of whatever he was going through, he was always a good hearted dude. I feel free to speak about his substance abuse as I was there too, often times with him as we were in a band together. I’m really happy that Ben took the time to do some Q&A with The Indie Spiritualist as it’s really inspiring for me to see where we both were, compared to where we are now.

As I Lay Dying: The Jordan Mancino Interview

September 26, 2010

Saturday Sept 25th. It was around 1:15pm as I walked to my car and thought damn, it’s too late in September to be this hot. I got in my car, set the GPS, and headed over to the Webster Theater in Hartford, CT, where I would be meeting As I Lay Dying’s drummer Jordan Mancino for an interview. Upon arriving, and after a brief call to his super friendly tour manager Adam, I was met outside the tour bus by Jordan, who after finishing his cigarette, invited me in to sit down and do the interview. I made my way back through the bus, almost tripping a couple of times over various backpacks and books, before finally sitting down to get things started.

Fear Love: The Steve Karp Interview (Part II of II)

September 21, 2010

TIS: You mentioned being humbled by a Cosmic Force or High Being. One of the things I remember about coming into Kustum Kulture (which we’ll talk about in a few minutes) is your Jesus tattoos and how we talked about your being half Christian and half Jewish, but never really going much deeper than that. Now I’m noticing your Sanskrit tattoo (Mani Mantra) and I’m wondering if you would mind talking about God, Religion or Spirituality? (more…)
