Charming Charlie 1

5. Girlfriend in a Comic: Smiths lyrics give new meaning to Charlie Brown’s world, August 14, 2013

A Bay Area graphic designer adds Smiths lyrics to Peanuts comic strips and the would squees with glee. You can draw a vulgar picture, but you just haven’t earned it yet, Snoopy.



4. Interview: Duff McKagan on punk rock, the differences between Seattle and Los Angeles, and his new band Walking Papers, August 12, 2013

Michael Christopher goes deep on the former Guns N’ Roses bassist on a variety of topics, including the Seattle punk scene and his new band, Walking Papers, which played the Comcast Center as part of the Rockstar Uproar Festival with Jane’s Addiction and Alice In Chains.


3. Motley Crue accidentally interrupt last night’s Diamondbacks-Mets game in Arizona
, August 11, 2013

Whoa! Yeah! What the fuck was that? Former Diamondbacks closer JJ Putz gets a rude awakening mid-pitch at Chase Field when the stadium’s DJ accidentally fires up Motley Crue’s “Kickstart My Heart.” We’re shocked Putz didn’t land on the DL after this.

Alice in Chains NEW


2. Interview: William DuVall of Alice In Chains on getting out of the box, moving forward, and respecting a legacy, August 13, 2013

Another MC interview, this time with “new” Alice In Chains singer and all-around solid dude William DuVall on replacing Layne Staley, meeting his parents, and the new AiC record, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. After this was posted I went back into the ’90s Alice In Chains catalog, and tracks like “Would” and “We Die Young” really hold up. What a great band.

Coolio featured

Of fucking course Coolio riding a chick like a horse at the Middle East is the most read and shared post of the past week. We’re not surprised.
