More Stupid emo Protests

Really, is all this stupid emo bull shit necessary. First the emo protests in Mexico, and now this in England? This is just ridiculous. It’s not like there’s emo slavery or a struggle for emo civil rights that need to be reached. The last time I checked it was 2008, and all though we live […]

William Spencer Goes MTV With Hollarado

No way, MTV coming out with yet another reality series, and a skateboarding one at that. Well, considering it revolves around the life of skater dare-devil, William Spencer, I doubt it will be as shity as The Life of Ryan.

Iggy and the Stooges Concert Rider

Ah, the powerful joys of having a demand list set for the green rooms backstage. While some musicians ask for unusual food requests such as removing all the brown M&M’s from the candy bowls, others I’m sure require the loose attention from a few strippers. Some demands may be quite true, while others just take […]

Ladytron @ The Belly Up 4/31/08

Ladytron played a sold out show at one of my favorite San Diego venues, the Belly Up this past Saturday night. The whole scene was quite interesting, amusing and annoying all at the same time. I felt like I walked into in a happy room filled with a bunch of raver rejects. I don’t know […]

Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson

Damn that’s a mouthful, Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson. Can’t we just call him M-Bar or something? I can’t quite remember where I came across this super talented individual, but I’m so diggin’ his music. A jewel in the Nile, in which case the Nile he represents is Brooklyn. On the same label (Say Hey Records) […]

Brace Yourselves For The Doors Documentary

The Soft Parade: Great, another element adding to my obsession with this beautiful musical libertine. Isn’t it bad enough I impersonated him (leather pants and all) in my High School creative writing class while my bestie played Janis? As necro as it may seem, I sometimes wish I can raise the dead. Marking the 41st […]
