What a Tangled Webb We Weave

Stockholm Syndrome Derek Webb

Without further ado, here’s my first ever podcast… thepaintedpodcast 1.0: What a Tangled Webb We Weave features 2 tracks by Derek Webb and a full length interview I did with him with phone for Decapolis. While I work my butt off transcribing the full interview for Decap, I figured I’d share it as a podcast with my loyal TPM readers.

This week is Contest Week, so I can’t just post something without including a small contest now, can I?

This is the first and simplest contest… follow these 3 easy steps and you may be the winner of a copy of one of my all-time favorite CD’s, a sealed copy of the out-of-print original pressing of Soul-Junk’s 1956. This CD if the very CD that introduced me to Pigeon John, who has become my favorite emcee over the years… here is what you gotta do.

1. Download the Podcast.
2. Tell me what was the most interesting thing Derek talked about to you by commenting on this post.
3. Email me at justincharlesharlan@gmail.com with a follow up question to Derek that I can pass along to him.

Enjoy the conversation with Derek, he’s quite the interesting artist and you won’t have to take my word for it. Contest will run through Friday, so you’ve got a week to listen to the coolness of Derek and the not-quite-as-coolness of me.

  5. What I would say I like most about Derek Webb is how transparent he is. It’s always seemed really self-evident that he is doing what he’s doing because of what he wants to do and what he thinks he should be doing. I also like that he has an integrated view of the world and he expresses it that way.

    The question I would have for Derek, is how he feels about the fact that he’s often preaching to the choir (you can preface it by saying that I totally love his music and message). Simply because most of the people that he listens to have the same values, does this mean he’s really affecting change? What can he do to bridge the gap between his views and those that might not hold his (both those who don’t get the controversy or those who are offended)?

  11. […] Derek Webb is my kind of guy, and I never would have known it if Conrad hadn’t been looking for someone to review his newest album, Stockholm Syndrome. Up until the point I began listening to the album, the only thing I knew was that he was part of Caedmon’s Call, a band I never cared for (or cared to learn much about for that matter). No, I’m not bashing Caedmon’s Call, or pre-Stockholm Syndrome Derek Webb, I simply had little to no interest… in fact, this is something that happens quite often as an elitist music snob. […]
