The second film from the director of District 9

Who’d have ever thunk the “How’d you like them apples?” guy would evolve into one of Hollywood’s best action heroes. Certainly not us. But Matt Damon has become consistently bad ass over the years, and he’s usually spot on in selecting his film roles. We were huge fans of director Neill Blomkamp and his last film District 9 […]

The Sunset Strip's Roxy Theater kicks off the 20th Anniversary of hip-hop's most beloved party album

In our humble opinion, there is no better hip-hop party album ever recorded than the Pharcyde’s stellacular Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde.
