CHRISTOPHER R. WEINGARTEN is a Brooklyn-based freelance music journalist whose work regularly appears in the Village Voice, RollingStone.com, Revolver and much more. In 2009 he vowed to review 1,000 new releases over Twitter.At the end of 2009 Weingarten set out to collaborate on a book version of the Twitter reviews with Article.
The resulting book is not really a book at all. It is a physical representation of Twitter. Twitter in the raw. Each of Weingarten’s 1,000 tweet reviews from 2009 will be individually typed out on to a single index card and the mass of the reviews, along with an introduction by Rolling Stone’s Rob Sheffield, will be held together in an oak index card catalog with a laser engraved “cover.”
