1. Bullets, schmullets: is the Game a wuss? First, that crude My Little Pony butterfly facial tat, now we hear Jayceon's a dutched-out crybaby. “Amsterdam is like weed heaven,” Taylor reports to High Times after his first visit to Stonersville. “I almost cried when we had to leave-- I was looking out the bus window and waving goodbye like in one of those movies.” As the first celeb mugshot to make the weed-creed cover since High Times returned to its, ah, roots, the Game gave HT some other fitty-cent nugs-- like why the West Coast blunt-boy prefers wraps to glassware: “I don’t want no big-ass bowl with me. That’s like eating cereal while jogging, you know what I'm sayin’?" Even Riff Central didn't get those sorts of lines. Online teaser of the Q&A here, but it doesn't include either of the above goodies.
2. Speaking of that cat Sylvester. Ohmigod! Spin's Sia Michel's in the Books!
3. Miliard rolled in from last Thursday's Wedding Present show fuming that a fanatical taper went all bitchy librarian on him, shushing him three songs into the David Gedge fest. ‘Parently, that was Brad of Bradley’s Almanac, who was kind enough to post the entire night’s recording here. (Listen closely ten seconds into “Crawl” and you can hear our boy Mil going, “Woo-hoo-hooooo!” Thankful Brad shut 'em up?)
3a. Also, on BA: Dinosaur Jr.'s “Lung” from the Late, Late Show.
TONIGHT: The Game, Jon Langford, Yoni Wolf & the Danielson Famile, Reverend Horton Heat, "Chords and Discourse," Sir Richard Bishop, and more.
