Wack People Got No Reason to Live 

Things you need to know to avoid cultural ostracism.

Upping the Ante

Okay, Randy Newman, we'll now pay you $100 to perform "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" at the Oscars.
If you make it a medley and include "Rednecks," we'll kick in a free subscription.

Radio Imbroglio

The peculiar visual aesthetic of Energy 92.3 TV commercials.
i.e., "Orgy at the drunk tank viewed through night-vision goggles."

This Song Will Change Your Life

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Gold Lion."
As we speak some wayward DJ is working on a mashup with this and Green Day's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams." That, too, will really suck.

Cutting-Edge Humor

No, you are not the first person to suggest renaming the Aerosmith song "Cheney's Got a Gun."
And neither is this guy: RickDavisMusic.com/cheneysgotagun.mp3

Bizarre Personal Crusade

Cam'ron abruptly declares war on pedophiles.
A fine way to spend his time when not critiquing Jay-Z's footwear.

Assaults on Your Dignity

Refusing to listen to a hot new band named AIDS Wolf on general fucking principle.
Have some respect for yourself.
