After Gayballs left a comment in my last post about Edgar Winter's classic prog metal instrumental "Frankenstein," I've been seeing weird references to Frankenstein songs all around me.

I don't know where it was, but something I read recently referred to an a song by Aimee Mann by that name.



I'm kind of an Aimee Mann fan, but this doesn't...

I know you have been a fan of my work in the past, so I figured I would let you know my new film is posted in my journal today. Come check it out before YT pulls it down.

Here's the scenario: The earth is invaded by aliens. They will destroy all of humanity unless we can defeat their crazy industrial space music in a battle of the bands. Bands will be judged on one criteria only: do they rock like a motherfucker live.

You are the concert promoter. You have a time machine. What rocks hard enough to save the human race...

Look. I hate the asshole that says "my suggestion is better than any of yours" as if my knowledge means anything else or whatever.
So I'll give you this-- the we're gonna groove footage is brilliant and absolutely made my morning.

I'm xanaxed up good and proper and half in the bag -- on a monday night, nonetheless.

What better time than now to blog it up?

I was thinking earlier of my brief stint as a poet. You can find my published work here. Some of it, I think, is genius metered literature for the ages. As proof, I'm reproducing two haikus::

Jesus. It's been so long since I updated this blog. I'd like to think I've been busy, but I suspect the truth is that I haven't had anything to say.

Well, I got in a review copy of the new Bad Brains record yesterday. I don't know if I like it or not yet. It seems pretty good, but I...

More from my Russian Attorney. He's currently involved with an immigrant voting rights project in NYC. He sent out the following email to all of his contacts sometime after last week's episode of Heroes.

If any of you watch the TV show Heroes on NBC, i just wanted to point out a few voting discrepancies in the last episode.

First, even though the...

As my "favorite movies" in my profile notes, Spider-man is one of my favorite films. I love it like a drug. So I was looking forward to Spider-man 3 a whole lot. I finally saw it this weekend.

And it suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucked. Everything that could have gone wrong went wrong. Even the fight scenes, which are the best part of the movie, are lackluster. Kirsten Dunst...

I've been trying to update my blog more frequently, but like Jules Winnfield says, "It's hard, Ringo."

Anyway, the latest and greatest is as follows. I wrote an article for my day job that I think is sort of alright.

Also, I had this pretty interesting email conversation with my Russian attorney about Christopher Hitchens.

RUSSIAN ATTNY: I guess the old hack has...

My latest obsessions:

Greg Palast.
Just read the paperback edition of Armed Madhouse. Really great book full of unbelievable suppositions and documentation that makes you believe pretty much every word. Kerry won in 2004. Believe it.

The Larry Sanders Show
Haven't seen the new DVD yet, but it looks awesome. Even though every episode is available on YouTube (hint NAMENUMBER) the bonus features on...

I think I have an idea for a really good movie nerd drinking game. It's called "Match the Ben Affleck Character to the Movie."

Wrong answer: take a shot.

You could do it with other actors, but check out the ben Affleck character names you can choose from:

Jack Giamoro
Drew Latham
Ollie Trinke
Gavin Banek
Lawrence Bowen
Rafe McCawley
Buddy Amaral
Rudy Duncan...
