In his greatest role yet, Gary Busey comes back as a cookie: "Eat me, you punk bitch!"

"The GingerDead Man" is not available yet on Netflix. However, "The GingerDead Man 2: The Passion of the Crust" can be rented. And it's about to be on my queue.

Krist Novoselic: "We sold out. Kill us." Maybe this is a clue that Kurt didn't commit suicide...

What a sloppy killer though, right? 

This is a great interview. Nirvana was always right about the music industry (and especially MTV), but it's still kind of like a whore punching his pimp in the mouth. Apparently, Kurt was frustrated with MTV anyway.

Stephen Colbert made no more of a mockery of Congress than Congress has of itself. Except he was honest while doing it.

There are obviously jokes spread throughout, but the last two minutes of Colbert's statement are as straightforward an assessment of reality as any member of the House or the Senate has lied about giving in years.

The new song My Chemical Romance sounds like an insane Broadway show. Gimme more, gimme more, gimme more...

So we've now moved beyond Green Day's effect on popular music as the basis for all pop-punk bands to the Broadway show based on American Idiot as a basis for the new albums by already successful pop-punk bands.

I'm a Green Day fan. I appreciate why they signed to a major label - I was 12 at the time so they were a major doorway to punk. I appreciate that they've grown older and are writing about a broader range of stuff, at least because I've also grown older and understand where they're coming from on a lot of this stuff. Even if the Broadway show thing seems a little weird.

I just never expected MCR to go all Rocky Horror on us. Maybe I never paid enough attention to the band to have seen it coming. I guess this could have been a clue. But again, I really haven't been paying attention to them.

Regardless, the song is good. You've got to wonder if the entire album will sound as in your face as this does. Which could be interesting.

Innerpartysystem's video for "Don't Stop" speaks for itself.

Rachel called me in to see this, and I whispered: Go Gators.

Hello ducks!

We took a stroll around the neighborhood on the nicest SoFla day in months and decided to say hi to the ducks. They walked up to us, which I guess means they're hungry...

Wow, White Hills, I didn't see that coming. Massive feedback and a social conscience is cooooooool.

I, too, react to human tragedy with a killer solo. 

"Three Quarters" is from White Hills self-titled album out now on Thrill Jockey.

The 1st single from the new Black Angels album is a simple rocker. And I like it.

The tweeter at Radioactive Records was right when he called it a banger. Guess I'll have to track down the rest of Phosphene Dream. (It came out yesterday, so I know I don't have to look too far.)

Today in awesomely clever: Pirate Billy Corgan

Some guy is rewriting every one of Billy Corgan's tweets in Pirate.

The real Billy Corgan:

Pirate Billy Corgan:

I wonder if the Zwan album would be better if it had been recorded in pirate.

(Thanks for digging this out LA Weekly.)

That song is about Kanye himself, and it's a brilliantly backhanded apology.

Runaway (Ft. Pusha T) by Kanye West

In retrospect, this is Kanye's apology to Taylor Swift - and plenty of other unnamed women, I'm sure - for being an asshole and a douchebag. I'm willing to bet we all know a few people that this song is actually about.

Whatever you think of the performance or the man himself, the song is just another reason that 'Ye is one of the most electrifying artists alive. The fact that there's even a debate about it proves my point.

Good morning. I NEED a NOFX yarmulke. That is all.

Here's the video for "Everything in Moderation (Especially in Moderation)." Cobbled together to spread the word about the new singles compilation, The Longest EP, it shows that in their 40s, the guys in NOFX are still younger than most of us have ever felt. I can't wait to see them live in January - it's been far too long.

Rage Against The Machine, where were you for the last decade? Live in L.A.: "Waaaaaaaaaaaaake uuuuuuuuuuup!"

I suggest headphones or speakers turned way the hell up on this one. 

Zach's speech during the breakdown, which is focused on the immigration law in Arizona and that the economic and jobs crisis that he says has partially spurred it on (and it's proposed copying in states across the nation), points out something important: "The cause of this crisis is Goldman Sachs and AIG and corporate America, who have shipped our jobs overseas." 

The "land of hypocrisy" may be the greatest on Earth, but those at the top have forgotten the most important words of this song: "What you reap, is what you sow." What, you don't think it matters that we don't make anything in this country any more? Think again.

Can somebody ask @trent_reznor for an update on the Closure DVD? This teaser says 2004, so it may be a little late...

I guess I'm breaking out the double-VHS this weekend. Probably also gonna screen the Beasties "Sabotage" VHS too. Why isn't this stuff on DVD?!?

If nothing else, we know the score for The Social Network will be quality. Cool website too.

Squarepusher is doing something new.

You can hear him playing the bass. But he's also been doing the trigger-samples-with-the-bass thing for a while. And there appears to be a live drummer in the video.

This should be an interesting album.
