My Record Store Day wish list

Dear jolly, rotund Record Store Day Man, Gosh, is it almost Record Store Day again? I’ve waited so long for this day to come! And I’ve been a really good music writer this year, Record Store Day Man. Honest I have. (Well, unless you ask brokeNCYDE.) I wrote my heart out about all the ban[...]

'Chocolate Rain' dude still around, somehow

It looks like the whole “Internet meme fame” thing is getting a lot harder to pin down. There may have been 15 minutes of fame before the web, but these days certain meme-based Internet “celebs” are finding new ways to stay afloat online. Remember Tay Zonday “Chocolate [...]

Lil Wayne Drops No Ceilings

Lil Wayne can do it all. Pleading guilty to guns charges. Dropping rhymes on a terribly conceived Weezer track. And now releasing the mixtape No Ceilings. Nah Right has all the info on the mixtape and a link to download the thing. All I can say is, in just experiencing the first couple of minutes [.[...]

Weezer featuring Lil Wayne – 'Can't Stop Partying'

Uncle! Can I give up? I’ve kept a pretty upbeat attitude when it comes to Weezer as of lately. I always hope for the best, and if I’m disappointed I’ll just say “maybe next year” and move on. But, “Can’t Stop Partying” is, well not quite the Weezer fol[...]

Undone Sanitarium

Ok, I can’t pass up an opportunity to talk about this (via Rolling Stone): Last week Rolling Stone chatted up Rivers Cuomo about Weezer’s new album Raditude. Near the end we asked about the 15th anniversary of their debut single “Undone – The Sweater Song,” which he now admits [...]

Hipsters Say The Darndest Things…

Well, I must stop myself there. I can’t say for sure if any of these folks are indeed of the hipster mentality. My guess is Anamanaguchi aren’t exactly, as they appear to have something of a normal sense of humor and hang out with genuine fun-loving guys Harry and the Potters (who are a [...]

Guitar Hero 5: Emo Edition

Guitar Hero, the popular musical-video game phenomenon is coming out with its fifth volume. And it might as well be called the “Emo Edition.” Or the Indie Edition… One fits with the other. While the new version of Guitar Hero (GH5) if you will, has the regular mainstream-rock fare,[...]

iMusician Meme

Stumbled upon this video through the 100 Bands in 100 Days Project: [youtube=] iBand… one of those many “phenomena” that might not be called such if it weren’t for the Internet. And these folks aren’t the only ones in on the iPo[...]

Want To Write A Book About Your Favorite Band?

Continuum’s 33 1/3 series is by far the best collection of books on rock records… In fact, it’s pretty much the only one that continually publishes works on a strong range of albums. They’ve gotten a strong showing on numerous “best of” listings for 2008 for a num[...]
