If you believe in the magic of love or the disgust of it, you may want to come to Meadowlark on Feb 12. We are throwing a kickass Valentine's Ball. So whether you have a loved one or are a loved one or have nothing going for you at all in your life right now, then come drink izze soda, eat a fucking cupcake and take the piss out with the rest of us, while celebrating the fact that you are or are not celebrating anything at all.

Who, in America, or the world for that matter, wouldn't take hold of that deal and make love to it with a spoon...?
At a recent 30 seconds to Mars concert I had some questions for the fans. What was so great about 30 seconds to Mars that would cost $65-$250 to see? Is the band any good? No, the answer is Jared Leto. The dreamy star of my so called life decided to use his fame to create an emo band. Staying and hearing the music live made me want to submerge my foot into water so long that it became a permanent prune. The video for the kill is an amazing "so-called" piece of shit. Jared Leto takes his beauty and covers it with gothic homoerotic treachery. There is enough studio magic in the song to make William Hung sound like Leonard Cohen. If the 40 something year old keeps dressing like an emo, bubble gum weirdo and turning music into a fashion accessory, it might just be the end of Jared Leto...destroying the delicate remaining hairs of difference between valuable pop and utter disgust. He may get eaten by sharks without even attempting to jump one, or perhaps, someone may just attempt to recreate his fight club face.
This video really makes one think...purely mind blowing.....
Oh Lost Lake, a wondrous trove of cheap salty beer, greasy hair, and old movies. This set the scene for the aging punk rockers known as the Gamits. The owls got lost on their way, maybe they were distracted by the smell of pineapples and expired coconuts. Instead came a mixture of old fans and drunkin punk rockers. What was most surprising was the energy. As I recall at punk shows people get riled up and engage in sweaty bone cracking body mashing. The men must have all put on their chicken pants and left the moshing to the ladies. The center of the crowd was a beacon of joy and energy, but all around the edges the air was sullen. Was this because the Gamits fans are getting grumpy in their old age, or could it be punk rock really is dead? Are we really seeing the last of the mullets, a dying breed?
My buddy The Teej showed me this last night. He does a lot of great artwork with animal/human combinations so he was naturally juiced about the video below for the Ramona Falls (ex-Menomena's Brent Knopf's new outfit) song "I Say Fever." I really enjoy the linear detail of the vintage drawings. The video is directed by Stefan Nadelman. Watch for the stopmotionstrutting hunter around 2:05, followed by an incredible armed duel. The video was done in 2009 following the release of the album "Intuit" on Barsuk Records.
