Always Pay Your Sound Guy: Courtney Love Edition

November 21st, 2014 · Comments Off on Always Pay Your Sound Guy: Courtney Love Edition

Unless you have God-given perfect pitch, singing live is no easy feat. So many variables with which to contend. If you can’t hear yourself, you’re totally effed. So, I feel slightly bad about posting this, but at the same time I love these isolated tracks when they show up on YouTube because, you know, trainwrecks […]

Mark Kozelek Wants The War on Drugs to Fellate Him

October 7th, 2014 · Comments Off on Mark Kozelek Wants The War on Drugs to Fellate Him

Last week, Mark Kozelek seemingly joked that he’d written a song called “War on Drugs: Suck My Cock.” “I challenge War On Drugs to let me join them onstage and play a hilarious song I’ve written called ‘War On Drugs: Suck My Cock/Sun Kil Moon: Go Fuck Yourself’ at the Fillmore, October 6,” Kozelek wrote […]

Prince is Crazy, Contradicts Himself, Previews New 3rdEyeGirl Song

January 28th, 2014 · Comments Off on Prince is Crazy, Contradicts Himself, Previews New 3rdEyeGirl Song

To paraphrase Walt Whitman: Does Prince contradict himself? Very well, then. He is large, and he contains multitudes. Earlier today, The New York Times reported that two weeks ago Prince Rogers Nelson filed a lawsuit — well, his lawyers did on his behalf, anyway — against 22 bootleggers who allegedly posted unauthorized recordings of his […]

Elvis’ Bible Meets Reserve at Auction, Soiled Undergarments Do Not

September 10th, 2012 · Comments Off on Elvis’ Bible Meets Reserve at Auction, Soiled Undergarments Do Not

Locks of hair, maybe. At least you could clone Elvis with those. But his Bible? Some schmo paid $94,000 for Elvis’ favorite book. This Bible was given to the King back in 1957 and contains personal annotations and notes. My mind races thinking about what might have moved him to put his pen to the […]

Campaign to Convince Weezer to Break Up Has 99% to Go

October 7th, 2010 · Comments Off on Campaign to Convince Weezer to Break Up Has 99% to Go

The campaign to bribe Weezer into breaking up for $10 million is so funny because it’s probably how all 852,000 people who bought Pinkerton actually feel. Weezer has been a big bag of suck for the last 10 years. 10 years. That’s a long time to disappoint your fans, repeatedly. I tried to get on […]

Gorillaz’ Rider: Jar of self-righteous organic peanut butter

March 5th, 2010 · Comments Off on Gorillaz’ Rider: Jar of self-righteous organic peanut butter

The Guardian’s Dr. John Briffa deconstructs the health benefits (or lack thereof) in the Gorillaz’ rider. Murdoc’s rider • A magnum of Dom Perignon 98 – love this mixed with orange juice • Rum – Murdoc home-brew special. Must be at room temperature • Malibu x 2 large bottles – beats having to climb coconut […]

“They paved Nirvana and put up a Counting Crow”

December 22nd, 2009 · Comments Off on “They paved Nirvana and put up a Counting Crow”

Please do yourself a favor and go read the conclusion of The 50 Worst Songs of the 00’s, F2K over at the Village Voice’s blog. I’ve read it several times already today, and I laugh harder each time. It’s a vicious deconstruction of Counting Crows featuring Vanessa Carleton covering Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi.” There’s […]

The Thomas Pynchon indie rock hoax

August 14th, 2009 · 5 Comments

I can’t really remember what the mid-90’s band Lotion sounded like offhand, but I do remember the rumor that reclusive author Thomas Pynchon was allegedly a big fan, which was as random as it was puzzling. Well, it turns out the rumor was little more than some fancy meta-publicity stunt created by the band, though […]

Listen to classic rock? You’re probably dumb.

March 10th, 2009 · 2 Comments

The Guardian has been on a roll this week. Today Steven Wells has a piece on the correlation of your music taste and your intelligence. The results, uhh, slightly irked Mr. Wells, but the fountain of gold that spewed forth had me tearing up with laughter. To distill the results: turns out if you fancy […]

American Idol to burst into ball of irony

March 9th, 2009 · 3 Comments

American Idol doesn’t care about singers; it cares about ratings. Quota for pointing out the obvious reached for today. So, it should surprise just about no one that a show that purports to be a singing competition would enlist a non-singer of the non-singer-est ilk in that of one Kanye West. West is certainly a […]

Prince trades Corvette in for Segway

February 17th, 2009 · Comments Off on Prince trades Corvette in for Segway

It’s been almost 25 years since Prince cruised around on his purple hog in Purple Rain. A lot has changed in that quarter of a century interim. Prince is no longer starring in vanity (intended) film projects. Nor is he cruising around on two good hips. I’ll give him this, though: the man still looks […]

Great Punk Songs Need Shitty Players and Losers

February 10th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Hilarious post on Craiglist by frustrated musician (unedited): I have a punk rock band who’s been wasting time with shitty players and douchebags for months. I’m looking for some more losers to continue to waste time and money. If you don’t have a car or can’t drive then you’re perfect. If you need someone to […]
