Shock Jock Howard Stern is up to his old tricks again. Benji Bronk, who works for Stern, interrupted and pranked the much anticipated Roger Goodell press conference screaming about elevators. No doubt in reference to the infamous Ray Rice video.

 

Led Zeppelin’s In Through the Out Door – #MusicMonday

So don’t let her play you for a fool
She don’t show no pity baby, she don’t make no rules

35 years and one month ago today (thats 1979 fuckheads) Led Zeppelin released their eighth studio album, In Through the Out Door. It would stay on top of the charts for seven weeks. It would also prove to be the last album of new material as demon drummer John Bonham died a little over a year later, effectively ending the band. T

A little fact for ya: “Fool in the Rain” (probably the album’s best known song) and “South Bound Suarez” were the only two OG Zeppelin songs that guitarist Jimmy Page had no part in writing.

Jimmy Kimmel’s Lie Witness News – NY Fashion Week 2014, Featuring the Work of Teddy Ruxpin

Now, that’s a name I’ve not heard in a long time. A long time…

I was about to get ready for some more Destiny action, but then I watched this and knew I had to post it. Yes, its Jimmy Kimmel’s Lie Witness News – New York Fashion Week 2014.

New York Fashion Week is obviously a big fuckin’ deal, and the unfortunate victims in the video below got what they deserved…for sure. But I do feel for these fashion aficionados. They have an extreme peer pressure to know every fashion designer who has ever sewn an ill-fitting shirt.

Even it that ill-fitting shirt is by the great Teddy Ruxpin.

Rush’s 2112 (In Honor of TPB Season 8) – #MusicMonday

And the meek shall inherit the earth…Rush-2112-Music-Monday-Play-It-Black


Rush's-2112-Vinyl-Cover

In honor of the release of season 8 of Trailer Park Boys on Netflix, I’m throwin’ up my favorite album of Ricky, Julian, and Bubbles favorite band. That’s right, it’s Rush’s 2112.

A little history of this album: despite the pleadings of Mercury Records at the time for the band to not do another “concept” album (after the semi-commercial failure of the previous album, Caress of Steel), members Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Pert wrote this sci-fi masterpiece telling a dystopian story set in the year 2112. It became their breakthrough album, and eventually lead to this glorious moment where Ricky kidnaps Alex Lifeson:
