Lauryn Hill West Coast Tour and Concert Playlist

Lauryn Hill is one of the handful of R&B types that I enjoy. It’s really not that fair to label her just R&B since so much of what she does is hip hop. To be honest the Fugees’ The Score album has only recently started to grow on me. The album that really makes Lauryn […]

B. Dolan’s Kill the Wolf [REVIEW]

There are times when an album just clicks. B. Dolan’s new album Kill the Wolf clicked with me on the first listen. The year has been strong for hip hop. I was pretty sure Kendrick Lamar’s album was going to be my favorite in the genre by a long shot, but then Lazarus hit my […]

The Fantastic Four Film Wasn’t That Bad

Just kidding. The Fantastic Four film was bad. I don’t want to argue that. If I watched it in a vacuum without the internet without any outside influence I still wouldn’t have been fond of it. I just know these things. Unlike the internet, I wasn’t completely disgusted. It’s not saying much but I liked […]

Dr Dre’s Compton A Soundtrack [Review]

So this should be a really easy review. It’s a new Dr Dre album and it’s his third in his 20 year career and he knows what he’s doing. The album is great and I should be able to stop writing right? Compton is wonderful piece of work. Dr Dre is a producer and music […]

Ant-Man [Film Review]

My logic was this: If Marvel decides to make a movie about a lesser known, not so popular, and difficult to sell to the general public comic character, then they must be on to something. There must be something interesting or good coming. A lot of my passive comic book movie friends weren’t interested in […]

Metal Alliance Tour Spotify Playlist featuring Deicide, Entombed AD, Hate Eternal and Black Crown Initiate

Deicide is playing along with a great list of metal bands throughout the early summer for this year’s Metal Alliance tour. Deicide is classic old skool death metal and I’m excited to see them just because of who they are and what they represent, that classic influential Florida death sound. I’m just as excited for […]

Whitey Morgan Plays #RealCountry bro, at the Vinyl in Las Vegas

My father is big NASCAR fan. It’s weird because he’s from Argentina and has an accent and is not your typical NASCAR dude, on one level. On the other he’s a truck driver from family that raced motorcycles in Argentina and has lived in the US now for over 30 years. Me, not a huge […]

Earl Sweatshirt, Vince Staples Rock the Hard Rock in Las Vegas 05/15

Earl Sweatshirt and Vince Staples stopped in Vegas on the Not Redy 2 Leave tour. The tour has already taken them through the east coast and after Vegas they finish off with some stops in Texas and Arizona. Remy Banks of World’s Fair is support on the tour and local indie opener Ekoh opened Friday […]

Earl Sweatshirt’s I Don’t Like Shit: I Don’t Go Outside First Listen Tweets

Finally gave a first listen to Earl Sweatshirt’s new album I don’t like shit: I don’t go outside. Kept putting it off because I wanted to give it a legitimate first listen, not just put it on in the background, but I had a ton of Bad Religion to listen to because of their two […]

Radiohead’s Creep Covered By a Scary Choir of Blonde Chicks

  Here’s a cool thing, a bunch of Belgian girls singing the eeriest version of Radiohead’s Creep.

Dale Watson to Release New Album “Call Me Insane” in June

Dale Watson is releasing an album on June 9th according the Saving Country Music. Dale Watson’s website does not reflect this news. Dale Watson is a country music singer whose fans would label as “real country music” and while I try to steer away from labeling my personal tastes as real metal or real hip-hop […]

Arena Negra by The Myrrors [Review]

Listen to the guitars drone and slowly build build build build to nothing. The first track is over 11 minutes and it’s layers and layers of musical drone. It just drones. On top of that vocals sound like they’re being chanted in the background. It’s…so…good. At no point above was I being sarcastic or negative. […]

2014 Top Ten Albums

I totally cheated this year by making three albums tied for tenth place. So my top ten albums of the year is actually a top 12. I did this totally scientifically, I made a short list and album by album I asked myself which of the two I liked more and gave the winner one […]

clipping. Release a New Weird Video for “Summertime”

Summertime comes off of their second album CLIPPNG. The video features an almost regular beach scene with MC Daveed Diggs’ face copied and pasted over other people’s faces. Like everything clipping. releases it’s the right amount of strange, entertaining and interesting.

Ida [REVIEW] Nominated for Academy Award for Best Foreign Film in 2015

My wife is Polish, so this was a very talked about film in our household. I really try to not write negative reviews, but this movie plodded horribly and was mostly predictable. The plot was deep, but deep in a way that has been done over and over again. I feel bad for Polish filmmakers […]

2014 List Still Has a Ton of Unwatched Films

We are almost never able to complete these lists. Sometimes the documentaries and the foreign films are especially hard to find. The bold films are what we’ve seen to this point and the rest are waiting in the wings. We still haven’t watched Nebraska on the Best Picture nominated list. Perhaps I should just start […]

The Imitation Game [REVIEW]

I am behind on my Oscar/Golden Globe film watching. I’ve normally seen at least half of them by now and I’m pretty sure Imitation Game is one of the few on the I’ve actually watched. The film and the performances were great. For people who are fans of historical films then this is another reason […]

2015 Movie List Based on Golden Globes and Oscars

My wife and I do this thing every year. After getting sick of wasting our time watch crappy movies we make a list of the Oscar nominated films and start checking them off, adding certain snubbed films and never forgetting our corny comic book and sci-fi roots (yes we love the Marvel movies and crapfests […]

Horror Movie Music: Cannibal Corpse Brings “A Skeletal Domain” to Las Vegas

Horror movies exist and are popular because the allow us to explore our uncomfortable fight or flight feelings without actually being in any danger. Kids can’t parse the reality with the fiction and have more trouble sleeping at night after a well paced ghost story or scream filled blood bath. Horror films themselves have changed […]

The Curator Mix #1

Listen to my curated mess by clicking here here A little taste of what’s been going through my ears recently and why: ***Rich Gang “Flava” from The Tour Part 1 Mixtape*** I’m on the Young Thug bandwagon. Like many on this bandwagon, I have no idea why I’m on it, I just know I’m here […]
