Newps is Stoops

You know, every time I got to Newport Beach I really loathe it (although I do like that grimy hole-in-the-wall Cassidy’s). Especially on the peninsula near that Sharkeez and that District Lounge.

The Black Lips Featuring GZA

The Black Lips get dirty with the GZA and I’m not sure if I like it . . . I think their song “The Drop I Hold” is better off sans the GZA. Don’t get me wrong, I’m down with the Brooklyn native, founder of the Wu, but I’m just not diggin’ this track. Listen […]

I can’t tell you how fuckin’ excited I am to hear that The Sonics will be playing at the Ink-N-Iron Festival on Saturday, June 6. Their song, “Have Love Will Travel” is some-what the theme song to my life. I got addicted to this tune on my first long-term trip abroad (South America) back in […]
