As a musician, you rarely get to witness the progression of another musician’s project from start to finish.

My Tuesday evening was pre-planned, get off work and pre-game for Son’s of Anarchy by buying and listening to Drake’s newest release “Nothing Is The Same”.

So fellow Trike writer and podcaster (seriously, he has like 5 podcasts that I need to edit and get out. I’m a slacker.) Thomas Deja runs an awesome blog called Damn Your Ears! Damn Your Eyes! where he writes 10 statements about a film or television show he’s watched recently. (more…)
None of these questions have to do with Magneto. I was just looking at how awesome Cyclops has become in the comics since he murked out good ol’ Chuck. I’m telling you, Scott Summers has been gold since Grant Morrison got a hold of him. (more…)
Welcome to the newest feature of the site. Just like how Vibe used to pose 20 Questions at the end of every issue, I’m seeking to pose 14 questions every Wednesday. The answers are left up to the reader. And if you really want to answer them, use the comments section.
The Trike rides again as Thomas, Anthony, and I are joined by Chris “CFX” Flynn for more conversation about nothing. Within this show: “Accidental Racist” by Brad Paisley and LL Cool J is discussed, Thomas takes issue with how young girls dress these days, Anthony doesn’t like that Tom Cruise gets top billing even though he’s getting paid top billing money, they take the Biebs to task for his Anne Frank comments, I wonder if humping on the dance floor is the cool thing to do now, the Padres/Dodgers brawl is touched upon, Anthony shares tales of his trip to New Jersey for WrestleMania NY/NJ, my impending nuptials are announced, Thomas wants to join the PGA Tour and be average, and run-ins with the law are mentioned here and there. Anthony comes out of his shell and you don’t want to miss that, so press play…please and thank you.
