Danger! High Voltage! 

Stuff you need to know about to avoid cultural ostracism.

Travel Regrets

Lamenting that you can't make it to Austin for South by Southwest this year.

To replicate the experience, wait in line somewhere for three hours and then dip your head in a vat of barbecue sauce.

This Song Will Change Your Life

Willie Nelson's "Cowboys Are Frequently, Secretly (Fond of Each Other)."

The Red-Headed Stranger moseys up Brokeback Mountain; a joy to behold.

Enjoyable Activity

Not giving a crap about the Fiery Furnaces.

It's a load off your mind, trust me.

Disquieting Ad Campaign

The profoundly disturbing "Punky Chips Ahoy!" TV commercials.

An affront to both punk rock and chocolate-chip cookies.

Amusing Indie-Rock Lyrics

Like Jimmy Carter/Like electric underwear/Like any idea that never had a chance of going anywhere/This is who you are.

Stirring words of inspiration from "Jimmy Carter" by Electric Six, the distinguished gentlemen who brought you "Gay Bar."

Impending Concert Experience

In fact, catch Electric Six next Friday at the Independent in SF.

Request "Improper Dancing."
