What Gener was Talking About: Gene Ween Band hits Brooklyn

Heath Ledger killed the Joker (ha-ha). Everyone is concerned with originality and ownership. But c’mon folks, “Why so serious?”. If the ending results of an idea are more crisp and refreshed under new and loving inspiration, then I welcome them. Is this the case for The Gene Ween Band?  What? “The Gene Ween Band is […]

Alex Pardee reviews Friday the 13th

I got a myspace bulletin today that read “*SPOILER ALERT* Repost because I woke up and Im still mad.”  It was sent by California artist Alex Pardee and was an honest expression of his feelings about Michael Bay‘s latest  attempt to remake and capitalize off of someone else’s classic film work.  In reading the review, […]

Awkward Letterman Moments Poll (Joaquin, Crispin, & Harmony)

After seeing the Joaquin Phoenix appearance from last night’s episode of Letterman, I was reminded of a couple of other choice interviews conducted by the late night host over the years.  In the 80‘s, Crispin Glover was on the show and that got really uncomfortable.  The weird moments were brought by Harmony Korine in the […]

Release Date: Feb. 19th, 2009 When I found out that kidrobot was slated to release a vinyl Quasimoto figure later this month, I had 2 thoughts run through my head.  The first was that it was a great idea and the second was, “Wait!  Why didn’t this exist already?”  A collaboration involving “planet Earth’s premier […]

Barack Obama: A Call To “ACTION” (figures?)

Dead Alive: Interview with The Dead Milkmen

The interview below was conducted by one of our newest writers, Dr. Radical, back in November during Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX.  We had hopes of posting it earlier, however, Dr. Radical was struck by a vehicle which held the transcription time back a bit.  He is fully recovered and we are pleased […]

Giant Robot Destroys Seattle: Buckethead’s New Years Eve Bash

Much of Brian “Buckethead” Carroll’s popularity has risen through his temporary stint as the guitarist for AXL Rose’s makeshift post millennium disaster that he is still stubbornly referring to as Guns N Roses.   However, if you were a fan of Buckethead’s work prior to this, his inclusion in the group may have actually come […]
