Formula 1 2012: Kimi Raikkonen interview post-China

Photo: Lotus F1 Team. China was a tough Grand Prix for Kimi Raikkonen (Lotus). After qualifying P4 and running as high as 2nd late in the race an excursion into the marbles and tire degradation saw him plummet to 14th by the checkered flag. Teammate Romain Grosjean helped carry the team flag, coming in 6th after starting in P10 on the grid. Despite the tough race in China, Raikkonen's woes can't hold a candle to Michael Schumacher at Mercedes, who has 1 point and 2 DNFs to...

Formula 1 2012: Chinese Grand Prix

Race 3 of the 2012 Formula 1 season brings the series to Shanghai for the Grand Prix of China. Even before the race itself, drama was running high. Nico Rosberg drove to his first pole in 111 races and in the process gave Mercedes its first since Juan Manuel Fangio at Monza in 1955. At the same time, defending champion Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull) failed to make into Q3 for the first time since 2009, taking 11th on the grid and being out-qualified by teammate Mark Webber for the third time this s...

The Plastic Spoon: Mojito Marinade

Super Sunday! And no, I’m not talking about the Super Bowl. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Super Bowl (especially when Tom Brady sits in the middle of the field like a sad little third grader). No No! I’m referring to Wrestlemania Sunday. Make no mistake about it, wrestling, while much maligned by mainstream media, is a global phenomenon. As a matter of fact, on four of the five occasions when the Super Bowl and Wrestlemania have occupied the same venue, Wrestlemania has set th...

What I'm Into This Week - Not Wasting Food

I was brought up in a household in which we did not throw away or waste food. It was such an integral part of my upbringing that to this day it is a very important part of my daily life. Due to my sub-continent background, I had seen at a very young age and with my own eyes the very poorest of poor people. So, we were never told the clichéd and in-effective story of starving kids in China. We (my brothers and I) were taught to be sympathetic/empathetic and to think of those that didn&rsqu...

The Jibbies & Loond Show – Episode 031 – The Future, The Past, And Now

Pulling out of the rock immersion camp that is SXSW, Jibbies & Loond recalibrate their gauges and figure out what the hell else has been going on the world of metal. Jibbies starts off with his assessment of Mark Morton and Dez Fafara’s Born Of The Storm project before digging into Overkill’s ‘The Electric Age’ and (to his own surprise) finding hope in Soulfly’s ‘Enslaved.’ The duo share some geeking out over the splendor of the Small Stone Recordings Jukeboxxx (now on Bandcamp) before Loond takes control for blasts from the past by Uncle Slam (‘Say Uncle’) and Primal Scream (no, not the Brit rockers, the NYC thrashers). Other news and nuggets of knowledge and mirth are passed on along the way, so have a listen below and fill yourself up with metal goodness.

Friday LinkFrogging - 4/6/12

‘Tis the season…for resurrection! And though the big guy and his boy get most of the glory this time of year for pulling it off in miraculous fashion, they’re certainly not alone in their efforts. You need look no further than this week’s links for evidence. Take DC Comics for instance, they tried to breathe new life into their entire line with ‘The New 52’ boondoggle. And from the other side of the comic book aisle, Pixar’s going to take a stab at br...

What I'm Into This Week - Texas Rock Music

The rock music is a constant. But this week it’s taken a distinctly Texas twist courtesy of new releases from Houston power pop rockers Ashbury Keys and Austin heavy garage trailblazers American Sharks. We’ll start at the lighter end of the pool. Ashbury Keys (David Keys, vox-gtr; Darwin Keys, drums-vox; and Bill Walter, bass-vox) turn in the kind of hook-laden, guitar driven, upbeat music that should already have seen them huge everywhere. Their new 5-song EP, ‘Wake Up,&rsqu...
