(Cover Image: Getty Images)   The Fifth Element is one of the best cult sci-fi films of all time. With a knock out cast including Bruce Willis, Gary Oldman, Milla Jovovich, and Chris Tucker, Luc Besson’s 1997 (yes it’s seriously almost 20 years old) film excites, thrills and makes you laugh. It’s a perfect storm of fun. But […]

Since Prince’s passing I’ve seen a few people remind the internet of how crazy Prince could be and quite frankly how much of an asshole he was from time to time, but I think it’s important to put that into perspective. Remember, Prince built himself from the ground up and worked tirelessly as an artist […]

I first heard Prince played on what I will forever think of as the greatest radio station ever – 105.1 WTOS, “…broadcasting from the Top Of Sugarloaf” as it’s DJs used to say. This would have been back in the early-to-mid 1980s. My parents had moved us up to the woods of Maine, and when […]

This post will be short because right now I can barely deal with this. One of my favorite artists of all time, a man who needs no praise from the likes of me, a man who redefined music as we know it, is gone. He’s gone. He was only 57. Fuck you 2016. Fuck you […]

Life is really strange. That’s why going to see NOFX at the Mandalay Bay was the most gloriously fitting way to end a particularly daunting Monday. Vegas was one of the early dates on the band’s Hepatitis Bathtub Tour which is an excursion in support of their new biography ‘NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub and Other […]

When I was a kid, my school presented a play called ‘Bypass the Parcel’, written to protest a highway (in England, a ‘bypass’) that was going to cut right across the grounds. I found the spirit of that endevor again this week; in the debut performance of BLDZR at Manhattan’s Triad Theater on West 72nd Street. […]
