Ok, so I know its a month early, but I was itchin to get this out....
1. Armored Saint – La Raza (Metal Blade Records). Choice track – “Head On”. I was elated beyond belief when it was announced that The Saint was recording a new album this year. I traveled to L.A to see them and the record is just pure majesty. I can’t say enough about these guys.
2. Overkill – Ironbound (E1 Entertainment). Choice track – “The Goal is Your So...
I'd like to blame it on the Tryptophan.
I'd like to blame it on Black Friday.
I'd like to blame it on travel.
I'd like to blame it on sickness at home.
I could Blame It On Rio, or maybe even the rain.
I am very certain, at the very least, the Bossa Nova is somehow involved.
Any and all of those are true enough, but they don't make up for the fact that for the first time since its inception, I failed to bring you our loyal reader(s) your weekly dose of links.
As Thanksgiving approaches and the bye weeks fade into the rear-view mirror, as NASCAR fans get ready to go into left-turn withdrawal and find something new to do with their Sundays, as winter comes and a new Ozzy tour works its way across North America, so is it time for the Super Bowl predictions to begin.
Jerry Jones managed to lock the game up some time ago, with the hair-brained notion that the Wade Phillips/Tony Romo-era team would somehow be corronated champions unde...
There is nothing quite like a weekend amongst your own kind to really make you appreciate things like our little corner of the internet here.
Stephe and I will be reporting on our adventures in the wilds of the Austin Comic Con soon, but let me just say it was fun. From aging television stars to costumes to fine tequilas, we had a blast.
It made the real world all the more difficult this week.
I've salved my soul with Bruce Springsteen's new release, The Promise, and the searc...
Quinton "Rampage" Jackson vs. Lyoto Machida
Bruce: I'm picking Machida. Why? Simple. Matt has an unnatural mancrush on Rampage so I KNOW he's going to pick him. I'm picking against just to do so. Let's see how I do. Want more science? Machida beat Rashad Evans in May 2009. Rashad Evans beat Rampage in May 2010. So what does Pythagoras tell us? Machida beats Rampage. WINNER: MACHIDA via TKO in 3rd
Matt: Rampage is easily my favorite athlete for a number of reasons, but I'll try ...
Last night, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon had one guest.
The Boss was on hand to discuss his new album, The Promise.
It also gave Fallon a chance to wheel out his note perfect Neil Young impression and duet with a vintage Springsteen on Willow Smith's pop hit.
You can enjoy it all after the break.
Like a lot of bands, King's X members have generally written songs on their own before presenting them to the band. Unlike almost all of them, however, King's X has also chosen to start releasing multi-track demos of many of their songs for the fans to get a good listen. 'Songs From The Closet' is bassist/vocalist dUg Pinnick's first go round at this, and includes not just 4- and 8-track home-recorded cassette demos of already familiar songs, but two never-released tunes and a vocal comment...
Dr. Bruce and Stephe are en route to Austin Comic Con, where the streets will soon run with Geeky effluent of all manner. It's cool though. I'm saving myself for full immersion at the big one (San Diego) and the good doctor left a little prezzie behind, a visual representation of one of the Austin event's fairer participants, Torrie Wilson.
Wilson entered this world in Boise, Idaho, and became a successful female body-builder before moving to L.A. to -- all togthe...
I don't know about you, but my best ideas usually look a lot different when I finalize them than they did when I came up with them.
This website is case in point.
I've known for nearly a decade I wanted to create a space for my creative, like-minded friends and I to air our thoughts. That vision went through several iterations, including, for a fleeting moment, thoughts of starting a magazine.
Upon further research, I quickly came to realize we didn't have the financial r...
The pimp will beat you down, it's just a matter of how smooth the glove is. Or, as the movie itself says early on, "the world runs on Ghetto Physics." GhettoPhysics explores how power is wielded in the world through the examination of the interplay between Pimps and Hos. From street corners to Wall Street, on a subtle and globally consequential level, we witness today’s modern pimps selling their vision of business while the women do all of the work. Through the use o...
