J Mascis Buys Sensible Vehicle, Almost Breaks Internet


Dinosaur Jr. frontman, J. Masics spent the weekend in NorthHampton, MA browsing for a sensible vehicle to drive his family around in. Dressed in his signature clear and red glasses, amazing purple vans, Teen Idles tshirt and eyeball hat Mascis inks the deal on the contract. Out of the corner of his eye he sees the salesman back the new VW Golf into a handicapped parking space, poses for a photo and is on his way. Little did he know, INTERNET BROKEN.

The tweets and Facebook shares began, shared over 600 times in 24 hours. The comments range from frantic indie fans sharing with their friends and an occasional laugh to the brilliant "A VW Golf is much too small to carry 6 Marshall full stacks. I don't know what he was thinking" from Tyler Zachow.

In a world where Donald Trump exists as an ACTUAL presidential candidate and posts racist remark after racist remark, I needed this. And I am sure you did too. So blast my favorite Dino Jr. album "You're Living All Over Me" and have a great weekend!

THIS VIDEO OF LIT PERFORMING IN 1999 IS AN IMPORTANT CULTURAL ARTIFACT OF A FORGOTTEN TIME (from Vice Motherboard) I found this to be a hilarious(and true) read! But mostly hilarious!

(me with Exene and John Doe in 2010)

The new issue of No Friends is now available on their newly redesigned website. I write a column called "Let's Start a Fire" for No Friends that analyzes punk and things that I consider punk that other may not. The point is to expose punks to other things they may not know about.

Issue #3 has interviews with Oakland art-damaged, weirdo punks Violence Creeps, bleak Icelandic post-punks Börn, Los Angeles (by way of Chicago) stand-up comedian Kyle Kinane, ringleader behind Halo of Flies Records and Protestant -- Corey Von Bohlen, angular’n’dancey English punks Shopping, the composer of the soundtrack to the film It Follows – Disasterpeace, Vermont’s queer-centric record label Stickshift Records, comedian Caitlin Gill, long running zine editor and cartoonist Robin Bougie of Cinema Sewer fanzine, international DIY documentarian John Yingling of the World Underground series – focusing on East Asian DIY music and arts communites, Buffalo, NY’s one-woman lo-fi punk powerhouse Jamie and the Debt.

Plus tons of columns, hundreds of music reviews, and articles about stuff like how to go skateboarding in North Korea, 120 pages of some of the most interesting and most entertaining DIY punk/hardcore/whatever coverage you’re gonna find these days.

And as always, every copy of the zine comes with a 7” flexi record. Issue #3 will come with exclusive tracks from Oakland’s Violence Creeps, the straight-ahead screech and riffs of Brooklyn, NY’s Shockwaves, Chicago’s weirdo-punk noiseniks TV Slime, and the best goddamn teenaged punk band the city of Bellwood has to offer, Bleeding Gums.

Rolling Stone

From the Creators of the V/H/S Trilogy

Available on DVD May 17
Now on Digital and On Demand

Bonus Features Include Commentary, Deleted Scenes Reel, Outtakes Reel, Plus Photo Gallery

All roads lead to terror in the acclaimed horror anthology SOUTHBOUND, available on DVD May 17, 2016, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. From the creators of the popular V/H/S trilogy, the movie follows the fates of a group of weary travelers who confront their worst nightmares over one long night on a desolate stretch of desert highway. Directed by Roxanne Benjamin (producer, V/H/S 1-3), David Bruckner (V/H/S), Patrick Horvath (Entrance) and the film collective known as Radio Silence (V/H/S), the movie stars Kate Beahan (TV’s “Mistresses”, The Wicker Man), Matt Bettinelli-Olpin (V/H/S), and Mather Zickel (TV’s “Masters of Sex,” Hail, Caesar!).

An Official Selection at Fantastic Fest 2015 and the 2015 Scary Movies Film Festival, SOUTHBOUND had its World Premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and was released by The Orchard theatrically and digitally earlier this year. Dubbed the “‘Twilight Zone’ for the indie horror generation” (Twitch), bonus features on the DVD include Commentary, Deleted Scenes Reel, Outtakes Reel, plus Photo Gallery. 

Synopsis:  On a desolate stretch of desert highway, weary travelers – two men on the run from their past, a band on their way to the next gig, a man struggling to get home, a brother in search of his long-lost sister and a family on vacation – are forced to confront their worst fears and darkest secrets in a series of interwoven tales of terror and remorse on the open road.

SOUTHBOUND was produced by Roxanne Benjamin (V/H/S 1-3), Chris Harding (The Guest, You’re Next), Brad Miska (V/H/S ­1-3), Radio Silence (V/H/S) and Greg Newman (Stake Land, The House of the Devil). Executive producers are Malik B. Ali, Badie Ali, Hamza Ali, David A. Smith and Christopher Alender. It has a run time of approximately 89 minutes and is rated R for bloody horror, violence, language throughout, and brief drug use.
