From the 'is that even legal' department: A Milwaukee-area bar is holding a fundraiser July 11 to pay legal expenses for a man accused of killing his girlfriend while driving his motorcycle drunk after the two had been patronizing the establishment. The event will feature bikini car washes, a pig roast, and FREE BEER! No, really. Protests are planned. The bar -- Fatties on the Lake -- says the event will go on anyway, with free camping and rides offered to those who might overindulg...

  I last was in touch with this dude in about 1998 or 1999. He was involved with a band in the Bay area back then. I believe they were called the Last Americans. But I'd known him off and on since about 4-years old before then. Anyway, he's obviously done a great job chasing his dreams, and I couldn't be happier to see him doing something with his platform. War West Michigan! War James Michael.

My first trip to South-by-Southwest in at least a couple of years was a very cool time. Kolby stays up there now, so I had a place to crash and good company to do whatever with. Andrew was in town from LA doing his thing. Had hoped to catch theArt live, but the matinee they were playing during my 24 hr trip got shutdown by the fire marshals before they even took the stage. Still, got to meet them and hang a little. Good folks to a person. Saw some other good music though (Jon Davidson, the Effe...

Now that even the tail end of the decade is almost 10 years ago, I decided it was time to weigh in on this very important topic.  Important?, you ask. Why yes. Because at least one version of mainstream rock musical history goes like this: the Dinosaurs, Punk, 4 days of Power Pop, Hair Metal (during which Motley Crue was the biggest band on the planet for all of about 6 minutes, before getting knocked off by Guns n' Roses), Grunge. And then nothing.....Sure, the occasional song appears. Bu...

LOST Notes, 516: The Incident

Jacob: It takes a very long time when you're making the thread...but I suppose that's the point, isn't it? OR Rose Nadler It's always something with you people. LOST, Season 5 Finale The Incident I. In Which The Mysterious Puppeteer Is Not Only Real, But He Looks Kinda Like Your Fuck-Up Uncle. A. I'm going to take issue with the perception of Jacob as all-knowing, all-seeing or all-anything (besides perhaps first team All-Island for dodgeball or fishing or weaving or some...

LOST Notes, 515: Follow The Leader

Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: All right, dude. We're from the future. Sorry. LOST, Season 5, Episode 15 Follow The Leader I. The Part Where Richard Looks To Be In His Early 40s And Helps Some Of The Castaways Pursue Their Definition Of Destiny. A. For all the Kate mockery over the past several seasons, I totally get it now. If the reason she was kept around this long was just to deliver that look after Jack admitted they were with Faraday, then everything that Jack wants to erase was worth i...

LOST Notes, 514: The Variable

James "Sawyer/LaFleur" Ford: Whatever her reason is, helping H.G. Wells here talk to his mommy ain't got nothing to do with it. LOST, Season 5, Episode 14 The Variable I. The Manchurian Physicist A. "Hey, sorry guys, my mom says I'm too smart to take piano lessons any more. What's that? My lunch money? No, I packed a...oh dear." B.

LOST Notes, 513: Some Like It Hoth

This week: When you heard the title was "Some Like It Hoth," you probably had a pretty good idea of how the episode was going to go.  You were mostly right. Miles Straume: Third day we were here, I was on line at the cafeteria and my mother got in line behind me.  That was my first clue. LOST, Season 5, Episode 13 Some Like It Hoth I. M. Night ShymaLOST A. Maybe we don't see Miles' power that often because he still doesn't quite know how to harness it? Sometimes he need...

LOST Notes, 512: Dead Is Dead

This week: "Dead is Dead" (the phrase, not the episode) might be the biggest sack of shit they've ever tried to feed us. They may as well have called this one "No Seriously, Walt Is Old Because Time Travel" or "Jack Is A Reasonable Man" or "Different Haircut = Different Ages!!!". John Locke: ...then I'm sure the monster will understand. LOST, Season 5, Episode 12 Dead Is Dead I. Ben Sans Innocence Means Less Sandwiches And Longing, More Attempted Murder A. Well naturally, because W...

LOST Notes, 511: Whatever Happened, Happened

This week: The group has a hard time coming to terms with the fact that "Whatever Happened, Happened". Roger Linus: LaFleur asked me where my keys were. That bastard doesn't ask any questions he doesn't already know the answers to. LOST, Season 5, Episode 11 Whatever Happened, Happened I. In Which Kate Learns That The Movie "Parenthood" Is Not A Training Video A. If his latest turn as LaFleur doesn't give you enough respect for Sawyer (his hangup on fake names notwithstanding),...
