Sacrilegious Rendering Of Nirvana In Guitar Hero 5

This is abominable: In the below video (via Stereogum), watch in horror as the “Guitar Hero” Cobain belts out Flavor Flav ad-libs, Dave Mustaine giggle-rants, Billy Idol come-ons, and Jon Bon Jovi exhortations. You can even make Kurt Cobain sing a motherfucking Bush song. He does it all while dancing like he’s at a Phish show, accompanied [Read More...]

Kanye Disses Taylor Swift (On The Pusillanimity Of Joe Wilson And Kanye West Vs. The Magnanimity Of Beyonce Knowles And Barack Obama)

So last night, Kanye proved once and for all that he has no class through a single action which demonstrated an unbelievable lack of grace.  Taylor Swift looked so demoralized and her speech had been all about feelings of being surprised to be accepted by this particular voting bloc, when he insulted her by implying [Read More...]

Ghosts

Laura Marling has one of those rare voices and phrasing styles that seriously makes my heart hurt with its sublimity and keeps me repeatedly hitting the repeat button on my i-pod.   Out of the nearly 9000 songs on my i-pod, those featuring Marling, Lisa Hannigan, Neko Case, Lykke Li,  Amy Millan, Nina Persson, and Victoria Bergsman get the [Read More...]
