homas is a Los Angeleno in his mid-30s, which makes him practically ancient by Stylus reviewer standards. He’s originally from the Midwest, which informs his sensibilities somehow; he also spent almost 5 years in the dirty south, which did the same. The Smiths changed his life, Public Enemy did it a second time, and Trent Reznor might’ve done it a third. His favorite R&B; album of all time is Alexander O’Neal’s Hearsay, and he considers George Jones and Aretha Franklin the ne plus ultra of singers. Even though he’s taken, sexy pictures are encouraged to the above address.
