My name is Thomas Nassiff and I write this blog. 

I'm currently a digital content strategist at DIRECTV in New York City. I also co-own and operate a record label called Bad Timing Records with my partner Zack Zarrillo and I was, for a while, the co-host of a podcast called Encore with Jason Tate. Now I'm a sometimes-guest on that show.

Formerly, I've been a senior editor at, a web content manager at Fuse, the label manager at Paper + Plastick Records, a freelance music writer and publicist and other things here and there. You can find out more about my work experience, past and present, on the website where I keep that stuff

This personal blog was started immediately after I stopped writing for AbsolutePunk, where I was on staff for over five years. I want to have a place to write freely: About music, like I have for a long time, and about whatever else I feel like writing about. If you read it, thank you; if you don't, that's okay too. Thanks for stopping by.
