Yep the Presidents are back ... they've played a few shows here in Portland the last couple of months, too.

Bumbershoot looks like fun -- too bad a boatload of schoolwork will keep me from making the trip.

Oh yeah -- Harvey Danger!!

Alright, I can't sit by idly anymore. Blink 182 is/are good. Whatever credibility I might have ever carried on this board is now gone, but whatever. Calling anyone a "sellout" is such a loaded thing to do, anyway. But I digress. The incident in question with David Cross occured at one of those celeb...

That "Island in the Sun" cover was dreadful. I still think it's way too early in relative terms to decide who is more influential. Weezer's still going, after all, and in the midst of recording their fifth album. Nirvana made teen angst profitable and bands like Puddle of Mudd bankable. Thus far, We...

Putting this into context ... GloNo is like Rob Flemming/Gordon. Pitchfork is Barry, only worse. Pitchfork is like a twenty-car pile-up on the freeway. You find yourself stuck in the middle of it, unable to stop gawking but wishing to be anywhere else at the time. I love how the first three White St...

Good to see Outkast getting nominated for their stellar album.

No matter how much I intrinsically agree with you guys and think that Pitchfork is a breeding ground for uptight music critic fungi bent on ridding the world of their own opinions ... I'm still gonna check it out.

I'm a failure as a music geek!

The girl in the picture CAN'T work in a record store -- she's too cute and doesn't look like she wants to cut some shit up with old Britney Spears singles.

There was an insanely funny book written about metal and the author's sad sad love with the misunderstood genre. It's called Fargo Rock City by Chuck Klosterman

I worked security at this airplane parts plant for about three months in 2001. It wouldn't be so bad if my boss wasn't an overzealous prick, absolutely positive someone would break in, build a plane and fly out of the plant any second. Not only that, but the shift was 6pm-6am, Saturday and Sunday. E...
