Douglas Martin
A senior writer and managing editor of Passion of the Weiss -- the unofficial poet laureate of Tacoma, WA -- Douglas Martin's journey as a writer began with this website's first regular rock column, Douglas Martin's Dirty Shoes. In the decade since, he's written for a bunch of places under his real name (including Pitchfork, Seattle Weekly, and currently for KEXP.org) and continues to write about music and professional wrestling here, because you can't talk your shit anywhere if not at home.
