Celebrity Meat || Yours for a Price
I’m taking bets! Which celebrity will be the first to embrace this and eat their own meat? Will they post the video to YouTube?
God, what a fucking age we live in.
BiteLabs grows meat from celebrity tissue samples
and uses it to make artisanal salami
A year ago, the above direct quote from Bitelabs™ would have read like an experimental poem, but as of February, it seems that this is our reality.
Kanye West, Jennifer Lawrence, and Ellen DeGeneres are some other names being tossed around as possible future meat-products. I’m pretty suspicious as to whether this Bitelabs™ is serious or not, but for now, only time will tell.
MOVIE REVIEW: Non-Stop
by John Esther
Bill Marks (Liam Neeson) is a guy who starts the day with some booze mixed in with his coffee. You can tell he is sad by the way he carries himself, his lack of grooming and just his general disposition toward other people – in person or on the phone. He is not the sort of person you want to be around and you certainly would not like him to be in charge of many lives. Read on, reader…

ALBUM REVIEW: Axxa/Abraxas | Axxa/Abraxas
by Jay Donegan
I didn’t know what to expect when I first plugged in Axxa/Abraxas’ self-titled debut album. They had been described to me as a sort of “art-pop indie garage psychedelic” group and that descriptor left me feeling confused and uncertain. Not that I wasn’t interested in any of the aforementioned genres, but the idea of them all coalescing to form one cohesive piece was not something I could wrap my head around. Axxa/Abraxas is the brain child of 23-year-old Georgia native Ben Asbury. A music junkie at heart, Asbury began exploring music at a very early age, influenced by 60’s pop, psychedelic rock, post rock, the Elephant Six collective, and punk. Over the years, he’s honed his craft and soaked up all these influences to create the sound that has ultimately become Axxa/Abraxas. Asbury is also an accomplished visual artist and through his self-founded RTA Collective, began releasing cassette tapes of his music along with his artwork. Read on, reader…

Be a Goat || Ruin the World
This is exactly what it looks like: a goat simulator. What, that doesn’t sound awesome to you? Then watch the video.
I wonder, could it drive a person mad if they used an Oculus Rift in first person view? personally, I’m not scared, I hope to see more in the BE A _____ AND FUCK SHIT UP genre, but maybe it’s an acquired taste. Either way, I’m holding out for the Cat Simulator.

NEW LIVE REVIEW: Skinny Puppy @ Vic Theater | 02/21/14
by Neil Miller Jr.
I’ve seen Skinny Puppy several times even before their sold out show at the Vic Theatre on February 21st, so my own personal expectations were set fairly high. My favorite shows I’ve seen from them were back in 2004 when they began touring full throttle again. The setlist was great then (getting to hear “VX Gas Attack” and “Harsh Stone White” were the most memorable experiences I think I’ll ever have from seeing Puppy live) and the band was full of vigor to the point where the show rivaled other immersive rock shows. Since then, the shows and setlists may be different, but Cevin Key and frontman Ogre are still capable of invigorating their audience and churning out a captivating set of their experimental electronic music. This show was even more spectacular than others for one major reason… Read on, reader!
NEW INTERVIEW: Legendary Songwriter/Producer Lamont Dozier
by Justin Tucker
Do you have a favorite Motown song? If you do, it was most likely written by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Lamont Dozier, legendary songwriter and one-third of the Holland-Dozer-Holland team that helped shape the Motown sound. Classic tunes like “Nowhere to Run” by Martha and the Vandellas, “I Can’t Help Myself” by the Four Tops, “You Can’t Hurry Love” by the Supremes, “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)” by Marvin Gaye are just a few of many hit songs Dozier has had his hand in. He’s also a Golden Globe winner and an Oscar nominee.
Last month, Chicago Children’s Theater premiered for the world Mr. Chickee’s Funny Money, a family musical with songs written by Lamont and his son, Paris Dozier, and based on the children’s book by Christopher Paul Curtis about kiddie investigators and a dollar bill with the likeness of James Brown. The Doziers’ delightful songs feature hip-shaking Motor City R&B and soul as well as funky hip-hop and rap.
Recently, I had the honor of sharing a brief conversation with the American master about creating music with his son and his involvement in musical theater. Read on, reader…
