It's gonna be at the Upstairs Gallery this Friday, December 13th, at 8pm.

It's going to be oh so wonderful. You've gotta go to this one. I promise that your Christmas will be INCOMPLETE without it.Read More

Hello all! It's me Sean Rose again, your good friend! I am here to once again talk to you about my favorite subject in the whole world: music videos. The best subject ever!
Last week we kicked things off by talking about a music video that defined the image of a band for the rest of their career. This week, I'd like to talk about a video that took the image of its creator into a strikingly new, unusual direction: Kanye West's 35-minute self-directed 2010 short film, Runaway.Read More
Hello Steamroller friends & family. My name is Sean Rose and I am here to talk to you about music videos, the one thing in the world I love more than anything. And I am very excited!!Read More
Sean Rose is a comedian/writer type guy a real ass passion for teen pop that transcends the typical halfhearted modern poptimism most music writers dip their toes into once in a while. He gives the 33 1/3rd treatment to forgotten nuggets (some of them deservedly so) and undeniable classics from the bygone boy band era on his totally vital teen pop blog, Digital Get Down.
It's refreshing to see someone write as passionately about anything as Sean does about M2M, a group probably best remembered by you and I as the baby-voiced duo who did the one song from the first Pokemon movie. Check out a recent entry from Digital Get Down, and don't miss the next edition of Sean's excellent live pop music essay show show, Collector's Edition, July 31st at the Upstairs Gallery.Read More
My name is Sean Rose. I've been living in Chicago for almost three years. For all of those three years, I've been in a show called The Telethon, every first Saturday night of the month at the Playground Theater.
The Telethon is ending this Saturday. One last big fun celebratory final episode, and then it is over. The last episode of a show that has been with me since I moved to Chicago. An inseparable part of my Chicago life will be gone. I don't know what I am going to do.
Sean Rose of the mighty Collectors Edition, a live essay show about pop culture and music and most importantly FEELINGS, is a huge, unironic fan of One Direction. You can listen to Sean and fellow CE member Rick Joyce talk about modern boy bands, specifically 1D on the Collector's Edition podcast. In advance of tonight's edition of Collectors Edition (8pm at the Upstairs Gallery) Sean sent over this proposition to the boys in One Direction.Read More
