Can Radiohead ever do wrong?
Each album released by the band is so highly anticipated, amplified by starving fans scouring the internet for a whisper of gossip regarding new material. — more
I declined the opportunity to write a movie review for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World; I’m way too biased. I’m totally in lesbians with anything Pilgrim. So I left the review duty up to our friend Noah Nickels, and decided to write something else… Reasons why the movie and books both rock, in different (or similar) ways. Both of them stand strong on their own, but there are certain ways that each “won the party.” And if you’ve only seen the movie or only read the books, do the other thing NOW!

There was a time in my life before I was obsessed with all things Scott Pilgrim. Really, there was. It was just a few short months ago. In fact, I remember the day vividly. As an avid fan of Edgar Wright, I figured I’d scope him out on IMDB and see what he’d been up to.

Eisley at Lincoln Hall, Chicago — The Mild, Mild Midwest Tour — June 30, 2010
Eisley is a family band, led by sisters Chauntelle, Sherri and Stacy DuPree. Their brother Weston plays drums, and their cousin Garron takes on the bass.

Sure, it’s cool that they’re related and don’t go all Noel and Liam on each other, but beyond the charms of a family band lies a rock band that’s ready to unleash their true creativity. If only they could capture their live sound… — more
I used to get annoyed with people who would take one album from one band, put it on a pedestal, and hastily dismiss any following work from the band because it wasn’t a blatant re-hash of the album they love. (See: Weezer, The Blue Album.)
But damn it, We Are Scientists. You’ve made me become that person. — more
