You don't want to see what's inside my work email. You really don't want to see the piles of press releases and premiere requests that are currently stacked up in the hundreds, hitting my digital ceiling as I attempt to start my Monday with a focused plan to productively sift through the relevant news and turn pre-packaged announcements into clickable content.

So-and-so is releasing a new five-track EP in a few months, your problematic fave dropped a pretty risque new video and that washed up band that no one has even thought of for a good decade now, has decided to reunite and head out on a world tour. These are the things I need to post at a fervent pace, to not only keep up with the over-saturated blogosphere, but to harness the steady stream of emails that will inevitably continue their high-pressured pursuit into my inbox all hours of the day for the remainder of the week, (and probably on the weekend too, depending on the publicist.)

So to combat the rat-race, we're offering a content compromise in the form of our new daily column, Live From The Gutter - an afternoon recap of the day's press releases and the contents of my 405 email.
