Starring The Wire/Boardwalk Empire's Michael K. Williams

A return to form of sorts for MGMT. Great song, great video. Benjamin Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden are keeping it experimental on their self-titled 3rd album, and they certainly seem content on keeping their mega-hit Kids days in the rearview. Sure we’d all like to hear another “Time To Pretend”, but as long as they […]

6 tracks of dark, hard dubstep from the Soul Assassin

DJ Muggs brings us an early Christmas present in the form of this EP Sound Boy Killa. The name is appropriate, as Muggs has begun digging into some very bass-heavy vibes. Think hard dubstep, but without the frenetic schizophrenia of Skrillex or the sugary hooks of Nero. It’s some dark ass shit, which shouldn’t be […]

Saoirse Ronan kicks a lot of ass... and that's about it

Madman Mundt and the Elf breakdown Joe Wright’s latest, Hanna. The film is out today, April 8. The Elf It’s like The Bourne Identity with a pre-teen girl. At least, that’s what Hanna was on the page. On the screen? Not so much. I first read David Farr’s script a little over two years ago […]

From Cyanide Gas Guns to CIA Rectal Escape Kits

WIRED has an excellent collection of Cold War Era Spy Gear posted, all originating from espionage works between the USSR and USA. A bunch of really cool pieces, such as a Turd Transmitter (a crap-shaped homing beacon spies would drop to transmit bombing targets to pilots) and a C.I.A. Rectal Escape Kit (both in gallery […]

"I am on a drug, it's called Charlie Sheen!"

Man, watching the white-hot snorting disaster that is Charlie Sheen’s unraveling has become 2011’s most compelling train wreck. The whole meltdown received the inevitable Taiwanese animation treatment this weekend, and as can be expected its genius is unbridled. I get the “fire breathing fists” and the strumpet in the bikini — hell, even Chuck Lorre […]

Apparently her father sends her on a mission and the poop hits the proverbial fan… all set to […]
