» 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!

When I was in junior high and high school, I would honestly say that Mark Arm, Steve Turner, Matt Lukin and Danny Peters had as much influence on my emotions and social interactions as Thoreau, Salinger or George Bush. They were then, and still are, the consummate punk band. They didn't give a shit then and they don't give a shit now. They'll piss on your girlfriend and ink a deal with a major label in the same breath. They were making amazing records before Nirvana and Pearl Jam, and they're still making great records now. They are respected by everyone from Kurdt Cobain to Jimmy Dale Gilmore, for crissakes. Mudhoney are the shit, period.

As a fan, I already already own all of the major Mudhoney releases, so the first CD in this set is old news to me. The second disk, however, is a treasure trove of B-sides and rarities. Most of the fucking braindead punks out there are too busy posing as hip to appreciate this, but it's their loss. One of the most fun, fuzzed out guitar attacks ever, Mudhoney are more than grunge. Mudhoney are the godfathers of grunge.
