Asking men vapid questions


Guardian staffers adore Seattle's "only newspaper in town," the Stranger. And we're sending a major air kiss north for its cover package this week "Men Who Rock." The Rolling Stone send-up apes that rag's oft-copied Janet-with-her-boobs-being-held cover shot and typical lady musician coverage, asking local XY chromosones like cover boy Gary Smith of Partman Parthouse probing questions like "Do you set up your own gear?," "How does it feel to play music in a largely male environment? It has to be scary or overwhelming at times," and "How did a handsome man like you manage to get into music, of all things?" Clap, clap, alt weekly sisters.
