The mysterious K. Bonami got caught in a mosh last night at the Wolf Eyes show. Luckily, the camera was rolling. Holy fuck: we haven't seen ultraviolence like this since the Misfits at the Channel in '83 (on video: we aren't that old). Fave part is where they go "Whaaaaa!" and then they go "AIIIIIIGH!" and the thingee goes "GSGVHGHSHASDZZZZRR!" and the kids all pump their fists like it's a Dropkick Murphys chorus.
A long time ago, when we were temping in an office that reduced us to a trained data-entry monkey, the only way we could halt the onset of a mental breakdown was to stream archived episodes of NPR’s This American Life off the internerd.

It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops.
Last week a story in the LA Times discussed how Fox Studios plans to set up a separate production branch called “FoxFaith” to make films that will draw in the evangelical Christian audience.
