    Fuck your Honda, fuck your Subaru, let’s you and me get out of here.

  • “O Come O Come Emmanuel” Bad Religion on Conan O’Brien

    Bad Religion can basically do whatever they want. If this isn’t punk rock enough for you, may I remind you this is Bad Religion doing a Christmas song. Think about it.

  • Jason Kreis Explains Move to NYCFC

    Jason Kreis has been one of my favorite post-match interviews for some time now. He’s thoughtful, patient, actually tries to answer questions without using cliches or coachisms. You have to admire what he’s been able to accomplish with Real Salt Lake. Salt Lake City has never had a championship team in professional sports. College basketball…

    Eddie Kramer Mixing Jimi Hendrix’s “Dolly Dagger”

    Eddie Kramer is almost as much of a legend at recording as Jimi is at guitar. Legendary partnership that tested technological and creative limits and they did groundbreaking music without computers. Just an amazing song anyway, beautifully layered.

It’s a really interesting hour where he confronts the myth of legalizing pot, the Netherlands experience, and Washington State’s plan to capture revenue from the newly legalized drug market. The problem is this, the…

  • “Danger Zone” Archer Version

    This is so perfect. You know Archer has a total man-crush on Top Gun Tom Cruise. Pretty sure everyone sees themselves as Maverick, or in this Duchess. The last season of Archer was not up to the high standards, but it looks like they are back on their game. Carol/Cheryl and Lana as Kelly McGillis,…
