...randomness surrounding Guided by Voices, Robert Pollard, and other great indie rock bands; a quasi objective look at "my" sporting teams; the random horror film; plus other crap as we see fit...all with a Pittsburgh based feel.

Big Ben Douchebag

Please Rooney family. Please get whatever we can for this piece of trash, so we can save ourselves further embarrassment.

My feelings, exactly...

"He who shits out magic may shine
for the good of a customs and calling
call him Max
send him a fax
charge him no tax

Pop Zeus

He who gives love to angry children
kids on the skid with baggy trousers
call him zerman find him a helmet
He will come crashing

Pop Zeus

Electric Newspaper Boy!"

Japandroids - Art Czar 7"

Just got this here 7" last week, and from what I hear, it's already sold out. Lucky me. Limited to 2000 copies on sweet clear vinyl. FCKYA! B-side has a cover of a early 80's Steve Albini tune called "Racer-X". Supposedly, this is one of 5 7-inchers they'll be releasing this year...so heads up.

Both Barca and Real Madrid sit atop La Liga with 77 points. Fresh off his 4 goal performance in the Champions League, Lionel Messi will give our Beloved Barca the sweep and the inner track on another La Liga crown. Already ousted from the Champions League, all the $$$$ Madrid dished out last summer will be wasted. No Kaka for Real Madrid. No Ibra for Barca. There will be a Ray Hudson, though. 4:00 EST kickoff on GolTV (preceded by a 2 hour pregame show).

This is the true definition of EVERYTHING.

The new Quasi record...

is pretty awesome. American Gong is available from Kill Rock Stars...

Quasi - Repulsion from Kill Rock Stars on Vimeo.

Speaking of KRS, I got a little geeky last week when Tobi Vail e-mailed to say my Thermals / Cribs Record Store Day split 7" order was going to be held until Record Store Day (April 17). In lieu of any disappointment, I couldn't help my inner dorky fan-boy enthusiasms..."the drummer from Bikini Kill just e-mailed me...fckya!!!"

HEY! Get a 21 track free sampler download from KRS, containing a slew of good stuff...Deerhoof, Sleater-Kinney, Thao, Elliot Smith, Xiu Xiu, etc, etc....

Download Here, courtesy of KRS...
