Hey! Who put all this poop in my pants?
There aren’t a lot of things I love more in life than basketball and charities. Well…yeah you’re right. There are a LOT of foods I love more than charities. That said, I am totally on board with NBA star Chris Paul and his CP3 Foundation. I have long respected Paul as an ambassador for the sport and his community. As far as I’m concerned, he is the resounding sports icon...
Kate Moss is back
Where did she go? Remember when she dated the guy from the Libertines? Pete Doherty. I used to be obsessed with this song from his other band, Babyshambles. Maybe it’s about Kate Moss leaving him. “Dirty road to fame” seems fitting for both Moss and Doherty and the post-9/11 celebrity.
Make up sex with a pie
UPDATE: Remember last week when Edwards and I broke up? In case you forgot, Edwards had it’s eye on a skank ass ho. I mean this slut was sick as hell, coughin up muscus and shit. So we banana split and went our own way. Edwards went to a slut. I went to cryin. Apparently my tears were heard and Edwards wanted me back. Edwards sent me a direct message (DM) that read...
Rarely have I seen a more unpatriotic public display.– Paul Begala at The Daily Beast responds to the moment in last night’s GOP debate when audience members booed an openly gay U.S. soldier serving in Iraq. Watch the video here. (via theweekmagazine)

pitchforkreviewsreviews: Das Racist put out their second mixtape about a year ago and Ian Cohen, a combination entertainment lawyer/Pitchfork reviewer, gave it an 8.7, the second-highest Pitchfork score any mixtape has gotten. Three days later I interviewed Hima (one of the rappers in Das Racist) and suggested to him that…
F U Edwards Desserts
Me and Edwards Desserts go back a long way. I was eating Edwards back when there used to be a prayer on the bottom of the tin so when you’re done with all the slices and you’re licking the sweet crumbs from the pan, the Lord was right there with you. I loved Edwards more than anything and longed for that taste on my lips, mornings, nights and sometimes even before...

theatlanticvideo: Remix: ‘All the President’s Men’ vs. the Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’ “I can’t stand it, I know you planned it, I’m gonna set it straight, this Watergate,” begins the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage.” All the President’s Boys is one of those perfect remixes that works so well, you can’t believe you didn’t think of it first. Editor Jeff Yorkes “cinemashup” of footage from All the...
Last night at the Local 506 I saw Active Child aka Pat Grossi. Grossi sings in a layered, falsetto. He plays the harp, keyboard and iTunes. His lyrics are cheesy and impersonal. He performs with a wifebeater, two necklaces and the bust of a hot chick. His bassist is handsome and probably not plugged into that amp. All of these things you think would draw the ladies. Nope. Lots of boys. And not...
Me, Ian and Stu are The Sportscycle Crew
Wow, I can’t believe it’s already Hopscotch time again. While the plaza show headliners have garnered all the attention, there are still questions that remain for the next day and a half: If a North Carolina band has a permanent place in the headline bill, where do we go from The Love Language-> The Rosebuds -> Superchunk? Can we claim R.E.M.? Is the walk from Fletcher Opera...
I like to wait until they want to be written rather than trying to write them. I...– Laura Marling, on her new album, which I can’t wait to hear.
Panthers name their starter
“Alright Cameron, you passed my test and didn’t get any gang tattoos or dick piercings. You’re gonna start for us week one.” “Yeah, no shit.” “YOU DRIVE ME CRAZY BUT IT FEELS ALRIGHT oh hey guys! What’s up?”
