I leave you this...er...gem to soak up and wonder what the hell they were thinking. Be absolutely sure to partake first.
The airwaves are alive with the sound of vocal fry. Copious amounts of vocal fry. WTF?
Let me start by saying that I love NPR. I’ve been a fan for many years, and ever since I moved to California it’s the only terrestrial radio I listen to. They don’t just rip and read, they tell stories by way of well-produced audio packages that completely immerse the listener in the topic.
Star Wars nerds, rejoice! This dude somehow discovered that he can play the Imperial March on nothing more than a plastic stir stick. You’re welcome.
RokBlok - a “turntable” that’s heavy on the turn but light on the table. It’s currently on Kickstarter and has somehow managed to exceed their goal of $50k.
See that? It’s a rock in a leather pouch. And you, yes YOU, can part with 85 of your hard earned dollars to have one thanks to Nordstrom.
I became a fan of The Sword (a metal band out of Austin, Texas) by accident. During the summer of 2015 I was cruising the New Releases on Google Play Music and came across High Country - the then latest release by a band I’d never heard of. Of course I had to give a listen, because The Sword, and by about halfway…
There must be a Cars and Coffee happening this weekend somewhere here in the East Bay because I’ve never seen/heard this many asshats in cars with far more horsepower than their feeble brains could possibly handle.
Good news for lane splitters...
...because it (rightfully) links “speed” with “excitement.” This all sounds very dickish to me.
I’ve lost count of how many street motorcycles I’ve had over the years. I started out with dirt bikes as a kid, but I got my first street bike back in 1995. It was a Honda GL500 Silverwing, and since then I’ve had many a Honda and many a Yamaha along with one Kawasaki.
This freakin’ masterpiece is my Friday Jam. What music is ringing in your weekend?
Just found this gem. As a Bay Area commuter I can say that it’s spot on.
Anyone who appreciates the way music is constructed should watch this film, which is made of the footage from a set of shows Zappa/Mothers did at the Roxy in Hollywood back in 1973. The footage has been pretty much buried since it was shot...this film just came out in October 2015. The album Roxy and Elsewhere…
Google play Music launched their Family Plan today. For an additional $5 per month you can add up to 5 more users.
An open letter to all Kinja reporters...and pretty much every reporter everywhere.
I was nearly rear-ended this morning while on my motorcycle, and that’s a really scary feeling. I came to a stop at a light and a couple seconds later I heard the person behind me lock’m up...thankfully they skidded to a stop in time.
I discovered The Sword thanks to Google Play Music (hands down the best subscription you can buy), and I can’t understand all the hate I’m reading about their new record, High Country. Is it as “heavy” as their earlier offerings? No, but I don’t care, it’s still a very good record. After listening to this and going…
For those of you who read my piece about that pile of shit known as Frank Skrah, the sheriff of Klamath County, Oregon - here’s an update:
