Introducing The End's new web

Get to know The End's Managing Editor, Branden

March 30, 2016

Yo, I'm Branden.

You may have already seen me around here and thought, "Who the hell is that guy?"

I am the new guy around The End that they say "NEVER TOUCH THAT BUTTON!" to every time I walk into the studio. I am here to write stuff about music, food, public transportation, pizza, tacos, pizza tacos and whatever else I think might be interesting. 

You probably won't hear me on the radio ever, but you'll see me dinkin' around the internet, probably eating thai food in my office (they gave me a dope office). 

If you want to get to know me, hit me up on the Twitter, or read my super fun / totally uninformative Q&A I did with the people you actually like - Gregr, Manley and Zach.

p.s. Notice how I don't do Oxford commas? You're going hate that.

Best Seattle happy hour?

Usually if I am going to happy hour, it’s because I am trying to get cheap, dank food. With that in mind, a mountain of nachos at The Matador is like, five bucks, so probably there. However, if I can find cheap barbeque wings to dip in ranch anywhere at any time, happy hour or not, I am there.

How many stars to you go for when ordering Thai food?

Three stars. It’s just enough to kick, but not too much to where you can’t enjoy the flavors. Side-note, I am 100% always down to eat Thai food.

If you could be in any band, who would it be and what would you play?

I would be in whatever band Jack White is in and I would play whatever he told me to play in any of the 46 bands that he has. That, or playing the role of ‘Wild Eastern European Guy’ in Gogol Bordello.

Three essential albums?

Death Cab For Cutie - Narrow Stairs

Arctic Monkeys – Favourite Worst Nightmare

Beastie Boys - Licence to Ill

When you left the Sounders FC, what merch did you steal from them (and can I have any)?

Oh btw, I used to work for the Sounders. I took a giant cutout of Mauro Rosales’s head, a pair of Kenny Cooper’s old shorts and Marco Pappa’s old warm-up pants with a hole in the crotch. You can have Mauro.

What’s your favorite dinosaur?
John Malkovich.
