Interesting that the number one complain Justin has about the show is that, at times, the WACK AND ON TRACK section of the show can run too long, and his was 45 minutes! That was AFTER I cut out a story about his old nick name “Fred Nasty” which was his old

Every Day is Halloween: THIS MUST BE THE PLACE

(Editor’s note: EVERY DAY IS HALLOWEEN is our new column from Rob Skvarla exploreing Goth in Film) What is a Goth? Look, man, if you’re asking then you clearly don’t belong. There are obvious aesthetic choices — the corsets, the side parts, the dancing — but they’re often meaningless. Everyone from Korn to Lana Del Rey has been tagged a Goth. What I’m saying is: you can’t explain it; you can only see it. The various lifestyles that make up “Goth” exist to the extent that they’re able to be easily observed. They’re the open recognition of the world as

From the Stereo to Your Screen: The Ramones and Pet Sematary

  “Pet Sematary” by the Ramones from Pet Sematary It’s only taken half a dozen videos and a couple of months, but here we are finally marrying punk rock and movies in this column.

It’s weird to think that the Ramones — punk rock progenitors

On the #OscarsSoWhite Controversy

Is it passe to be talking about the “Oscars so white” controversy yet? Even if it is, this isn’t a new issue. If you were talking about it in 2016, you’re not being topical so much as you’re being late to the party. The Oscars sorely lacking racial diversity has been an issue forever. The fact that people have based this year’s controversy around the omission of certain nominations isn’t an advancement for diversity, it is a sad and shallow intrusion from the mainstream into an awards ceremony that effectively should honor the best in the industry. More distressing aren’t
