Super Hella Halloween 2 Is This Weekend

I wouldn't be doing my job as a fan of happiness if I didn't remind all you awesome people out there in internet land that Super Hella Halloween 2, the rock and roll costume party of the millenium, returns to the Red Devil Lounge in San Francisco this weekend. On Saturday October 26th there will be lots of people drinking adult beverages in costumes while the sweet sounds of Stenner Glen soothe their earholes lovingly. I'll be opening up playing a few songs that are probably more on the sad side of the happiness spectrum, but I promise to compensate with overly joyous banter. Thanks booze!

You can check out the facebook event page if that's your type of thing, or just embrace the awesome and go straight on over to buy tickets here. Also there has been an onslaught of new Stenner Tunes you can check out over here. Go America, be great!


Watch A Bunch Of Movie Characters Sing Baby Got Back

Youtuber whatdondrapersays has really done the lord's work with this supercut featuring a bunch of movie characters singing Sir Mix-A-Lot's seminal classic "Baby Got Back". You can tell it's a true masterwork based on the inclusion of the great Sho'nuff from The Last Dragon at the 2:20 mark. The answer to your next question is yes, Platoon does handle the "me so horny" part. Bravo interwebs.  [via

Stream Fiona Apple's New Typically Awesome Long-Titled Album

Posts have admittedly been few and far between lately but I couldn't forgive myself if I didn't pass along the greatness of Fiona Apple's first album in seven years streaming online. She's the best. I can't talk much now because I'm just about to listen to it a hundred times in a row.

As per usual you can thank the fine folks over at NPR for the stream. Then buy The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw, And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do when it comes out June 19th. Then go see Fiona on tour. Then pray for a shorter wait for the next album.

LeBron Cares, Is Not A Role Model

It's no secret I can't stand MeBron's incessant back and forth over whether or not he is a nice guy, victim, or villain as he so aptly put in the douchiest Nike ad of all time (gloriously spoofed by South Park here). Mostly I had tried to block that from my mind like that one time Kirstie Alley seduced me at Fatburger, but with the latest NBA Cares commercial going around those visions came shooting back to his declaration that he is no role model. I'd call him a hypocrite but he's not even sure what he is. Either way I mashed them up, forgive me.

Fishman Gets Buff For First Leg Of Phish's Summer Tour

In what is unquestionably their greatest announcement video to date, Phish has revealed the dates for the first leg of their summer tour. Aside from a three night stop at Atlantic City's Bader Field, there are no other first time venues, granted this part of tour usually covers a bunch of the band's favorite haunts. The ticket lottery is currently underway with the official onsales taking place March 16th and 17th. As per the now standard tradition, additional dates for the summer tour, which you can safely assume should have a somewhat west coast bias, will be announced in the spring. Rock.

To enter the lottery up until March 12th at 11:59 am EST head over to Phish Tickets. For details on the Bader Field shows the band has set up one of their quirky info pages here.

Enjoy Summer Tour!
