The concept behind Fine Filter is basically me writing about things from all areas of the entertainment world that I think are worth sharing, and not writing about the stuff that isn’t. Like most other people, I take in a ton of various forms of media on a daily basis, so this blog also serves as a way for me to remember the things that I like. Perhaps later I’d like to get a few other people writing for the blog, but for now it’s just me and I’m happy with that.
My name is Brad. I used to be a freelance writer for several papers in Nashville, Tennessee and had a regular column in Lexington, Kentucky’s The W Weekly called “Podcast Of The Week.” Some of the articles from that paper that are still relevant are available on the blog. I’ve been involved in a number of musical projects, The National Pool and Apeface and Crumplezone being the most recent. In 2007 I also started a podcast called Modern Music Business which is currently on hiatus indefinitely.
I now live in Japan and also have a blog about it called Yokohama Brad. I also really dig World Of Warcraft and my main character is a fire mage named Chipdipson on the Echo Isles server. My favorite musical artists are John Frusciante and Kool Keith. I also listen to a variety of podcasts on a regular basis.
