Please allow me to introduce myself

December 20, 2010 - Erin O'Neill
OK, so I'm already probably dating myself by using a line from the classic Rolling Stones song as the title of my first blog for Graffiti.

One of my biggest fears of taking over the reins of this long-established and highly regarded news magazine is that I might come off as an old fogey to all the hip, young kids who read us on a regular basis. I mean, I grew up during the dawn of the hair metal age. My bangs in high school were a mile high. I remember vinyl. I loved the Cure the first time they were cool.

But everything old is new again, right? Jelly shoes and flannel are back. Spandex pants are back, although I think they call them "jeggings" (WTF?) Madonna is still cool, although I think she goes by Lady Gaga now. Nothing's changed.

And that's exactly what you can expect from Graffiti. I hope to bring a fresh perspective to West Virginia's largest independent publication while remaining your continued #1 source for entertainment, the arts and alternative news.

Thanks for having me. Enjoy the ride.
