Veteran independent wrestler Eddie Kingston talks with Gonzogeek.com about CHIKARA, Chris Hero, Tommy Dreamer and more.
A last-minute training injury to Georges St. Pierre cut the knees out from under
UFC 137, another weird twist in a chaotic card. Nick Diaz was originally to get
a welterweight title shot at the event, but the social anxiety disorder he
disguises as "not giving a fuck" took that opportunity away. Turns out he might
not have had the chance anyway, as new #1 contender Carlos Condit finds himself
off the card and on the shelf until GSP's wheel returns to prime Terminator
In the meantime, the makeshift co-main now becomes the makeshift main. BJ Penn
(Condit's original opponent before Diaz blew it) headlines his first card since
UFC 118 last summer against Diaz. It's a meeting of two guys who tend to talk a
big game and then back it up. We'll see which tough talker can take advantage of
this unexpected showcase.

After seeing Mastodon in Istanbul at the Sonisphere Festival this summer, I was surprised to find out that they were playing at Fitzgerald’s in Houston to kick off the touring cycle for their new record – “The Hunter”. A beloved Houston institution since 1977, Fitz hosted a packed and sold out crowd for this monumental show. However, I was really there to see fellow Georgia brethren – Black Tusk.

Welcome back to another episode of J&L. Loond brings us a few notable new bands/albums, starting with the incredible self titled debut from Norway ’s Kvelertak. These guys are a refreshing mixture of Rock, Metal, and Punk. The songs are super upbeat and really fun. All their lyrics are in Norwegian, but it really doesn’t matter because I’d be really impressed if you know Norwegian and can understand anything this guy is gargling glass about. Continuing in Scandinavia, Loond highlights Denmark ’s Hatesphere and their new record entitled “The Great Bludgeoning”. This band has been around for some time and are a formidable and ferocious modern Thrash machine. Jibbies attends the Ozzy Osbourne book signing event in North Houston and gets to interview many an interesting character at said event. Check out his video interview footage at gonzogeek.com. Loond then starts up a short history lesson on the Punk/Hardcore scenes of the East and West coasts and the influence of Metal on those scenes. Take a trip down memory lane and reminisce with us as we talk about Token Entry, Leeway, RKL, Agent Orange, and many more great bands from either coast from back in the day. This conversation provides just the right spring board to talk about the brand new record by Agnostic Front called "My Life My Way" and to round out the show.

And that's a championship again! RBR-Renault secured its second consecutive Formula 1 manufacturers' championship at the Korean Grand Prix in Yeongam, though not without at least a small fight. Lewis Hamilton (McLaren) became the first non-Red Bull pole-sitter of the 2011 season in Korea. By Turn 4, however, Sebatian Vettel had claimed P1 and his Red Bull teammate Mark Webber passed Jenson Button in the other McLaren to move into 3rd place.
