Hello once again and happy turkey slaughtering to all.  We hope this episode will offer a moment of respite this week for those of you who feel tortured by your families.  So take a 20 minute break and get your J&L on.  In this episode, Loond updates us on his experience at Austin's FunFunFun Fest in it's 6th year with tales of pre-Madonna antics by Danzig, rude soundchecks, and a fantastic set by Slayer with Mr. Gary Holt on guitar.  Our duo also touches on the socio-political happenings of the Occupy Wall Street movement.  And with the end of the year fast approaching, J&L talk of compiling their Top 10 records of 2011 list, so if you want to join in on that, shoot us yours and we'll have ours up in the coming weeks.

F1: Countdown to Austin 2012 - Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi

The Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi was a good reminder as the 2011 season winds down of exactly how fine the line between champion and also-ran can be in Formula 1. Practice sessions saw the continued ascent of McLaren whose cars consistently ran better than Red Bull. Lewis Hamilton in particular had always been very fast at Abu Dhabi and this continued to be the case, with the assembled well-heeled masses given good reason to believe that Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull's stranglehold on ...

Jibbies & Loond - Mastodon/Black Tusk/Venomous Maximus - Video Special

Every once in a while a perfect bill emerges. One band is doing some low-key gigs to start the tour for its biggest album yet (Mastodon). Another band is doing club dates in support of its own great new album (Black Tusk). These two cross paths by virtue of some highly focused booking. Add a highly touted local act more than happy to open things up (Venomous Maximus), set it all in an iconic old wooden room bordering on just plain to small for the event (Fitzge...

Republican Foreign Policy Debate 2012: Highlights!

First off, let me say that I was very impressed by tonight’s GOP-presidential candidate foreign policy debate in terms of both form and content. I was expecting a true knee-slapper, with one statement more ridiculous than the next, cascading into each other until eventually there was nothing but laughter left. That said, some folks still did better than others, and foreign policy being my specialty (it’s true, ask around) I decided I’d try to sum it up for you. Herman Cain &nd...
