DOMINATRIX HILLARY CRACKS THE WHIP TO WARM LEATHERETTE

I predict Clinton will win the presidency and immediately win a hefty boob job. She'll then dye her hair red and sport a hip cyber-dominatrix uniform while cracking a whip madly. Bill is on all fours on a leash in a pink muzzle by her side cranking Warm Leatherette by Grace Jones from a giant 80's boombox on his back at her second State Of The Union Address.

- Tim Ranow (Amoeba Music Hollywood )

USC, LAKERS, AND GOOGLE ALL GOOD BETS FOR 2008:

USC win Rose Bowl: In addition to being the Pac-10 champions, USC will beat Illinois in the Rose Bowl on New Year's day.
 
Google Shares cross $800: In 2007 Google's stock was as low as $437 per share and as high as $747 per share. 2008 will see Google's stock soaring past $800. Don't sleep on the big G.

Lakers in '08: Bold prediction -- the Lakers will be the Western Conference champions only to lose in the NBA Finals. Can't say who they will lose to.

Minutemen Overload -Three Books and A DVD That Covers The History of San Pedro's Finest

Posted by Gomez Comes Alive!, December 29, 2007 11:35pm | Post a Comment


This is a two DVD set: the first DVD is the a biography of the band, the second contains various live performances. Many interviews with punk rock luminaries and local San Pedro homies who grew up with them. A touching story about three guys who never thought they would do anything that ended up influencing thousands.



Michael Azerrad's book on the post-punk underground (Pre-Nirvana) has a great chapter on the story of The Minutemen. This is a great read for anyone who is a fan of the band and fan of the influential bands of that era. The title of the book is taken from the first line of The Minutemen song, "History Lesson Part 2."

This is Mike Watt in his own words. Lyrics he wrote for the Minutemen, a 1983 tour diary and all the illustrations Raymond Pettibone did for the Minutemen. Introductions by Joe Carducci, Thurston Moore and Richard Metzler:

This book is the story of the making of The Minutemen's classic album, Double Nickels On The Dime. It covers the recording sessions, the concept of the album and its influence on music after the record was released.
