Post image for Chicks Dig Scars – The Life of Evel Knievel

The great Evel Kneivel would have turned 76 last weekend. One of America’s ultimate badasses, Knievel died in 2007 at the age of 69, having cheated death more times than a pride of lions. The pioneering godfather of extreme sports like the X-games, Knievel was a wild man living on the constant edge of death, stapled and sewn and bolted together like Frankenstein flying through the air at seventy miles an hour. And there will probably never be another one like him. Read More…

A Ghost Pulled Her Leg. Did She Pull Mine?

Restless Leg Syndrome Rube Goldberg Is Awesome!

by Tony Shea October 23, 2014

I absolutely love Rube Goldberg devices. There’s just something about a causal chain of events that I find fascinating, and none more so perhaps than this one,  a kind of ingenious public service campaign to promote understanding of restless leg syndrome (RLS) in the UK. I have no idea what to do with that piece […]

Fall Comes to New York

by Tony Shea October 22, 2014

With temps down in the low 50′s and high 40′s at night, not to mention a healthy dousing of recent rain, autumn has arrived in New York, producing a glorious  cascade of reds and oranges, purples, yellows and browns, a kind of  abstract painting that will soon be removed to reveal a sky filled with winter’s […]

35 Years after the Bogey Man

by Nate "Chops" Johnson October 22, 2014

“He’s gonna get you! He’s gonna get you! The Bogey Man is coming!” It was 35 years ago in 1978, on Halloween that terror was unleashed on the small, quiet town of Haddonfield, IL. It was completely unexpected and seemingly out of nowhere, that a psychotic killer was on the loose and wreaking havoc on […]

Every Time a Whale Explodes You Should Thank Alfred Nobel

by Tony Shea October 21, 2014

Alfred Nobel would have been 118 today. Of course, instantly you think of the Nobel Prize when you hear the name, and probably more specifically of the Nobel Peace Prize. Since the Nobel Prizes were first awarded in 1901, nearly 900 folks have been recognized for their great contributions in the fields of chemistry, literature, […]

Silver Screams – Creep Joint Scratch – Review

by Tony Shea October 17, 2014

There’s a pile of cd’s (and manuscripts) in my office that will more than likely never be reviewed. Partially because I no longer have a CD player, except in my car, but mostly because I have psychic blinders on. The pile could be a chair or a table—inanimate. But then the Silver Screams new EP, […]

The Tall Man – Tim Robbins – Top 5 Films

by Tony Shea October 16, 2014

Tim Robbins, who turns 58 today, has always been a sort of unlikely Hollywood movie star, too tall and overly boyish – it does’t seem like he could grow a beard. But it’s that awkward vulnerability that has served him well in both comedic and dramatic roles (71 so far as an actor), earning him […]

by Tony Shea October 14, 2014

Just because Bobby Bare is f&*king awesome. This song is one of those hilarious country gems that will save your life. This song sits on the same shelf as “Bad LeRoy Brown” and “A Boy Named Sue” by Jim Croce and Johnny Cash respectively. But unlike those great artists, you can still see Bobby Bare […]
