A long time ago, on a shoreline far far away there lived a boy who liked nothing more than rifling through his parents’ record collections, putting the headphones on, and disappearing to a place even further away. Particular favorites included: ‘Sgt. Pepper’s,’ ‘Apostrophe,’ ‘Cruisin’ With Ruben and the Jets,’ and ‘Out Of The Blue.’
The first album I ever owned was K-tels ‘Disco Nights’ compilation. Grandmas are ...
Classic. This word can mean a lot of different things to people. It is also a subjective term since it is usually used with a time stamp context. To me, the word classic is used to actually exemplify something that is timeless. Things that are classic defy being dated because it’s not about a fad, style, fashion, or other fly by night irrelevance. It’s about substance, true talent, and sticking to your guns. Speaking of fashion (the word itself mak...
I find it very interesting that the mainstream media does not label or use the term "terrorist" when talking about the Christian Militia's we've been hearing about. Planning to kill police officers, planning violence against the federal government, and cache's of weapons and explosives...but that's not terrorism. Now if they were brown and Muslim guess what they would be called?
I spent most of my musical time at SXSW '1o enjoying old favorites and just wandering up and down 6th St. with friends old and new. You can actually almost get by just doing the latter given the event's coincidence with St. Patrick's Day, the NCAA basketball tournament, and the weekend.
But hell man. It's a long year ahead, and there's so much new music available over these few days you might as well go see something cool while you're in town.
If nothing else it'll make t...
Or at least that's what I'd call it. Anybody who has followed Megadeth for any length of time knows that Mustaine = the band and vice versa. He's pretty much spent the last 20 years making sure of it. Just ask any of his former bandmates.*
Fair enough. But after all that time can Dave still not share the spotlight with anyone? Literally? That was certainly the case last night.
After much to-do about reuniting with original and long-estranged bassist Dave Ellefson for ...
Howard Stern today held the Tiger Woods' Mistress Beauty Pageant on his Sirius Radio show. Four confirmed mistresses were originally booked but only three (Jungers, Jaimie Grubbs, and Loradena Jolie) ended up showing. Jungers won.
Howard, Robin Givens, Gary Del'Abbate, Fred Norris, and Ashley Madison founder Noel Biderman judged the paegent, with voting based 50:50 on physical beauty and having the best story to tell. In an ironic (for Tiger) twist, Ashley Madison also put up the $100,000 purse...
Those segments of the US beholden to both big business and America-firstness have a big conundrum looming on the horizon: what to do with the natural gas supplies waiting to be developed on the Alaskan North Slope.
TransCanada and ExxonMobil have filed their plans to seek shippers with the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and also have permitting in hand from both the state of Alaska and the Canadian federal government to build a pipeline moving ANS gas south. BP and ConocoPhillips have ...
Those of you familiar with dUg (Doug) Pinnick likely know him best as the frontman/songwriter/bassist of Texas rock legends King's X. He's still being there and doing that, but in the meantime he's been one busy man with a number of side projects.
Most fully formed among these are Razr 13 and A.N.M. Razr 13 has been playing with increasing frequency in Texas and Little Texas (err...Oklahoma) to larger more enthusiastic crowds and increased critical praise each and every show.
dUg's role in thi...

I'm going to go with Christoph Waltz on this one. My reasoning is twofold.
First, Inglorious Basterds is Jewish wish fulfillment of epic proportions. A
