» Full Dark, No Stars - Stephen King's new novella questions mankind's ability to trust others.

 » The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.

 » Live: Surfer Blood/The Drums at Lincoln Hall, Chicago, IL - Remember when Weezer used to put together records that you could sing along to and rock out to? That's what Surfer Blood's show was like!

The easiest notion one can consider is that of the apparent fact that "it's all a conspiracy." Come to think of it, I would guess that this, Los Angeles, is the best part of the country for conspiracies. They tend to run rampant in these parts, just ask your grandfather - he knows about half of them, he's been brainwashed before. Grandpa's death came on casually and painlessly; he was no longer a part of anything but the cemetery. He would never make any newer moments in stories. My grandpa knew about more manly stuff than he did about college studies. He was an advocate of real man travel, which he accomplished to varying degrees during the world war. What's left is some weird 30 year old kid. A really weird one. Today is weird alike I am. I have not written a proper poem in years, likely I am not a poet on the innerdoors of myself. I am an outdoor spray paint artist - my limericks have nothing to do with beauty. Accidentally, a timepiece stuck out of his sleeve, and another man wished he knew the appropriate time. A timepiece tells more than how old you are; a clock, my fellowship! The alleys are clean, they are.
