» 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!

"Get on my level you can't get on my level/ You will need a space shuttle or a ladder that's forever"

"Wayne win, and they lose/ I call 'em April babies, cause they fools"

"I'm a Young Money Millionaire/ tougher than Nigerian hair"

"And just like it I'll blow that shit/ Cuz bitch I'm the bomb like tick, tick"

"And don't I treat you like soufflé/ Don't I look at you like I see a new day"

"Swagger tighter than a yeast infection/ Fly go hard like geese erection"

"I could get your brains for a bargain/ Like I bought it from Target/ Hiphop is my supermarket/ Shopping cart full of fake hip hop artists"

"My whole city underwater, some people still floatin'/ And they wonder why black people still voting"

"She said I had the right to remain silent/ Now I got her hollering sounding like a siren"

"I am legend and I will smith/ Now that's how ya let the beat build bitch"

"This is history in the making/ Now shut the fuck up and let me make it"

"I get her on top, she drop it like it's hot/ And when I'm at the bottom, she Hillary Rodham"

"Started out hustlin', ended up ballin'/ Nigga I'm the shit, get the fuck up out my toilet"

"I kicks it, no cereal like a landing and I sticks it/ Wherever she asks me, after she licks it/ That's too explicit, but why you listenin/ I smell smoke and somethins sizzling/ That's her pussy"

"Got paper like a fax machine, asaneen/ Damn I mean asinine, I'm dapper don/ And after mine there will be nine, damn I mean there will be none/ I will be one, of the greatest things you've ever felt, you've ever seen"

"I love being misunderstood/ Haha why/ cause I live in the suburbs/ but I come from the hood/ Bring the hook in"

"Baby, I'm me, so who you, you're not me, you're not me"

"If I'm wrong there is no right/ And if I'm wrong there is sno-white/ I'm tryin to be polite
But you bitches in my hair/ Like the fucking po-lice"

"Buck 40 on a ring that I don't really wear/ But I bet it light up the night like the city fair/ This shit ain't fair, I didn't have to go there/ But all this ice got me feeling like a polar bear"

"I spit movies like a VCR/ I spit rounds like the Tiki bar/ And if I got beef I'm the meat cleav-ar"

"I'ma smoke so many niggas I'ma catch cancer"

That's about all of em. Bonus disc too.
