Staying True at Crue Fest 2, Shoreline Amphitheater, 7/30/09

Last week, I was given the opportunity to attend Crue Fest and interview one of the opening bands. While I’m not the biggest Crue fan, or any of the bands on the bill, really- I decided that it would be fun, plus I wanted to test out doing video interviews as a new feature for […]

Thoughts on Albums: Behemoth ~ Evangelion

Sometimes an album comes along at just the right time, and everything clicks. For me, Behemoth’s Evangelion sounds like how I feel right now. So I’ve been listening to it on repeat since I ‘obtained’ it last week. Don’t worry, I’ve already ordered my autographed copy. There are many typical metal review words that could […]

rock and shop: kryonik design

eBay store kryonik design is where I go for some of my hottest going out clothes- Lip Service, Pleaser, and Demonia brands that can be hard to find in stores. Pretty much everything is ‘buy it now’, and they always have lots of new items coming in. Just use good judgment…some things are super hot: […]

Deranged Rap Night w/ Cage, Yak Ballz @ GAMH, 7/17/09

It’s Definitive Jux night at GAMH- one of the only hip hop labels that I can call myself a fan of anymore. Home to El-P, Def Jux is the stomping grounds for rappers still interested in the art of their craft- fast rhymes, killer beats, and edgy messages- not the bling and the bimbos and […]

2 Days of Pure Mayhem @ Marysville and Mountain View, 7/10-11/09

As I sit here in my new bachelorette pad, sore from moving and scared for what the future holds, I somehow have a smile on my face. I’m pretty sure it’s because I’m still high from the last two days, and I didn’t even take any drugs. It all started Friday morning at 11am, when […]

Chris Cornell Pays Tribute to Michael Jackson

I got chills the first time I heard Chris Cornell cover Billie Jean. Oddly enough, his cover popped into my head shortly after I first heard about MJ’s death…probably because it’s one of the more recent MJ related memories I have. This video is from the Peace and Love (hippie much?) Festival in Sweden this […]
