What is a Music Critic’s Life Really Like?

At Houston Press, Chris Gray and Craig Hlavaty swap stories

But I agree with you, it’s a lot of work, brain work. We aren’t crushing rocks in a mine or digging ditches, fighting fires, or working in an ER seeing lives flash before our eyes. We somehow have to make sense of things, especially with live reviews, that aren’t so easily described. Like, there have been times where after a show, like Britney Spears a few weeks back, where I sat in front of the monitor shrugging and stressed that I had to intimate the normalcy of something that should have been grand.

So yeah, it’s fun and physically easy, but the fights in our own minds are like torture. But a torture that you will have to pull from my cold dead hands.
