Axl and Hilfiger Smackdown

How big of a wuss do you have to be to get your ass beat by Tommy Hilfiger
Hey Axl, so much for your streed cred.

The feisty fashionista was acting all gangsta, hitting Axl with a flurry of punches, one that landed under Rose's eye.

"First [Axl and Tommy] were sitting. Then they were pulling on each other . . . It got so out of control," said a shocked witness.

As the punch-up escalated, Hilfiger introduced Rose to some "November Pain" with a blow to the cheek. Club guards quickly tried to separate the men.

"A bunch of security ran over - but Tommy would not back down. He was just out to take him down," the witness said.

Geez. Who woulda thunk? Pansy boy Tommy going all postal. I must say, I am very disappointed in Axl. I would really like to have seen Tommy boy get the crap kicked out of him.

As a funny aside, Axl did dedicate his acoustic performance of You're Crazy "to my good friend Tommy Hilfiger."

Still would have rather seen Tommy get his ass beat.

The LightSnake - USB Guitar Cord

The LightSnake. - The Red Ferret Journal
Super cool-ness ahoy! Not only is this a sound card built into a USB cable that lets you play your electric guitar directly into a computer, but it lights up too when data is passing along its length. Complete with noise reduction circuitry. How cool can you get, dude? Mac or PC.

Now the Schram-man can play astoundingly bad music (in all fairness it's what he plays, not how he plays) on the computer and have the bonus of blinky lights.

The LightSnake features SoundTech’s patented “Live when Lit” technology cable ends that glow when connected properly and flash indicating when sound is being transmitted.

Is it just me, or is this thing aimed the complete freaking moron musician? Glow when connected properly? Ummmm...if you can't figure out when your guitar is plugged in you should just give up now and switch to something easy. Like the drums.

Clerks II : Coming Even Sooner!

Clerks II : Coming Even Sooner!
In a ballsy move that says "Fuck you: we're a five million dollar flick and we're coming out in the fucking middle of the summer, bitches!", Weinstein Co. has upped the "Clerks II" release date from August 18th to JULY 21st! The wait is now almost a month shorter, folks!

That's right folks, we're back! Sorry about the no post for a while, but I've been on sabbatical. All right, fine, I just didn't feel like it. But you have to admit, the sabbatical thing sounded much cooler.

Anyway, at least I return with good news. More Kevin Smith goodness even sooner (It is too a word. The spell checker didn't even flinch.).
