WHY DON"T YOU CRY LIKE A BABY, BABY?
Getting Through the Holiday with the Mercury Quarterly Music Issue
We are in Touch with out Emotions here at The Mercury
. We hide nothing--whether it be joy, frustration, or tears--even at the risk of being subjected to Editor Wm. Steven Humphrey's cruel and incessant taunt, "WHY DON'T YOU CRY LIKE A BABY, BABY?" That's why, with our Music Quarterly, we reached deep down to extricate any emotion that happened to be hiding in our nether-regions, from anger (Brian Goedde on violent rap), to sorrow (Katie Shimer on the rock ballad), to willy-nilly joy (Jeff DeRoche on recent holiday music). In addition, you can find out who is the bigger wuss--Shellac's Steve Albini or his labelmate, Sam Coomes from Quasi--in the latest installment of the Mercury
"Music Trivia Challenge." Happy Holidays from all of us here at the Mercury
, and remember to always show your true colors, cause that's why we love you. Don't be afraid to let them show! Your true colors are beautiful--like a rainbow!
