Jibbies & Loond: The Shrine - LIVE!

What do you do as a stranger in Salt Lake City on a Monday night? Well, if you're me (or likely you) you get online and figure out what music is happening. Lucky me, the band this time around happened to be the Shrine. Hailing from Venice Beach, Calif., the Shrine deal what I would best term stoner boogie, but with shredding thrown into the mix by all three members. They were most of the way through at 2-month trek iwhen I saw them. Final testination? Two shows at SXSW in Austin, Tex.&...

Required Reading: Conan the Barbarian #2 and other Dark Horse New Releases

In the first edition of a new ongoing series, the Gonzogeek staff clues you in on whether an upcoming comic-book release is a must-grab, worth picking up in a TPB, or should get left lying on the shelf. This week, Conan the Barbarian #2 from Dark Horse gets the treatment.

The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 029 - SXSW Metal Guide

Alright, you've procrastinated. SXSW is upon us and you still don't know where the best metal is. That's okay. We're all sinners. For instance, by the time this episode goes out it wll technically be Tuesday. But, my cause was righteous; checking out Venice, California's The Shrine. More on them later. Back to the matter at hand. Give this cast a listen and you'll not only know who's playing where and when, but you'll also get some guidance regarding where best to spend your time. That's lots of choices out there: The Thrasher/Converse Deathmatch, the Metal Sucks showcase, the Metal Blade showcase, Small Stone, Brooklyn Vegan, Cvlt Nation, Tee Pee, Metal Alliance, Volcom, and on, and on, and on. Lots of it's happening at the same time. But don't worry, we've figured it out for you. Have a listen. And see you in Austin.

[Back to The Shrine for a moment. They somehow escaped both Loond's and my attention in getting prepped for the festival this year. Having freshly witnessed them, I can say that they definitely should be checked out. They are very, very good (stoner boogie shredding anyone?). And will be playing one of the Trasher shows on Wednesday and the Tee Pee Records showcase on Friday, Mar. 16. Live footage going up as soon as my brain and fingers allow.]

What I'm Into This Week: The Thrilling Adventure Hour

Every week, a GG staffer will give a little love to one of their current obsessions. This week: Matt loves the old-timey schtick of the Thrilling Adventure Hour. Over the past few years, I've become a hopeless comedy podcast junkie. It started with Comedy Bang Bang (then Comedy Death Ray Radio) and my habit has only expanded from there. I reached critical mass a while ago (I am subscribed to about 15 shows currently) and had to cut myself off; no new shows. And then I tried The Thrilli...

Gadget Crazy

“Smart” phones, iPad’s, Tablets, DVR’s, gadgets upon gadgets.   I can’t stand them.  And before I get started, I am not a crotchety old man who doesn’t understand technology.  I am an IT professional and a user of technology in my personal life as well.  What bothers me is that the majority of our simple-minded society is ruled by this technology.  It dictates their lives.  It controls people.  It holds them in its ...
