I love this site – there’s nothing about it that’s off the shelf. It doesn’t seek to sedate you.

Trainwreck’d Society is an intentionally stripped down, glitz free, and non-categorizable collective with a focus on music, art, life, wine, treasures of the past, film, and all things considered to be sacred in these strange times.
TS contributors are under no contractual or gun to the head obligation. They write whatever they want. While some of them might be experts in certain fields, you may find them writing about whatever the hell they feel like writing about. There are no firm representatives on genres of musics, political views, or brands of wine here. This is a site for individuals by individuals. Imagine that: an actual “No Spin Zone”. You never know what you will find among the wreckage. What you see is what you get, folks. Hell, we will always have a Gmail account as a sign of the lack of ambition to move beyond our current status. We aim only to continue to bring quality content to you, the fine readers.
We do a whole lot of interviews around here. It has become our niche to swap words with some of the most amazing talents in the world of film, music, art, literature, and so much more. We are very selective with these interviews, and a whole lot of thought goes into making them happen. Every person we interview has dedicated something to the world of art and/or entertainment that we felt was worthy of displaying. Past interviewees have included actors like Robert Davi (The Goonies), Bud Cort (Harold and Maude), Scott Adsit (30 Rock), Rob Benedict (Waiting…), Hattie Winston (Becker), Patricia Richardson (Home Improvement)and several more. Musicians like Lisa Loeb, Tony Scalzo (Fastball), Anna-Lynne Williams (Trespassers William), Zia McCabe (The Dandy Warhols), Jamie Jones (All-4-One), indie hip hop star Sadistik, Mopreme Shakur (Thug Life)and many more. Authors Rex Pickett (Sideways), Chuck Klosterman (Sex, Drugs, & Cocoa Puffs), Jess Walter (Beautiful Ruins), and more. And then we’ve thrown in folks like cinematographer Adam Kimmel (Capote), artist Ralph Steadman (Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas), comedic writer Rob Schrab (The Sarah Silverman Program), special effects mastermind Stephen Chiodo (Team America), and the list goes on and on. Be sure to check out our Index for the ever expansive list of interviews.
Musicians, Artists, Writers, Etc.: If you find this site to be the best thing since sliced cheese and milk thistle, or you are just looking for press wherever you can get it, we would love to hear from you. Independence is our virtue! But, if you happen to be rich and crazy stupid famous, you will be accepted as well….with open arms and a begging wallet. For the rest of you (us), you can send any piece of work to:
If you prefer to kick it old school, and would like to send physical copies of anything, just leave a message of sincerity, and an address will be forwarded to you ASAP. Any and everything will be considered. Limitations are for the meek!
We guarantee that your work will not be used in any form that could harm you or career in any way. Well, we’ll give it a shot. Let us know if we piss you off.
All of us here at Trainwreck’d Society want you to know that you are amazing. If you give your heart to something, that means you understand the meaning of life. And we are here to showcase and exploit that by any means necessary. We might just be another music/art blog among the billions already out there. But, we think we are special. And deep down, we hope you do to.
And of course, you can find us on Facebook and the Twittersphere. Be sure to “Like” us on Facebook for access for even more photos (especially regarding our Travelogue), updates and more. And “Follow” us as well, although that just seems like a strange thing to do.
