As we neared the park’s exit, the unmistakable sound of a piano wafted towards us in […]

Scott Pilgrim vs The World Soundtrack tracklist announced

If you visit here at all regularly, you know that I’ve been following the development of Scott Pilgrim vs The World closely. It’s not hard to see why. The film is based on a graphic novel that has strong ties to both video game and music culture, things that I, and many others, find attractive. […]

Bring home Scott and Rammy! (Are you seriously calling her that?)

Because you know you need a Canadian slacker in your life. As part of the massive marketing push for Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Mezco toys will be releasing plushies of the main characters, Scott Pilgrim and Ramona Flowers.

Git Off My Lawn: Of Mice and Metal Men

“I AM IRON MAN.” There was a time when people knew the lyrics to this song, even before Ozzy got his own reality television show. I guess there was a time when people knew who Ozzy was before he got his own reality television show, but maybe that’s too metaphysical a thought for me to […]

Trisha’s Take: Open on Sunday review

Open on Sunday Performed by Paula Carino (vocals, rhythm guitar), Ross Bonadonna (lead guitar, backing vocals), Andy Mattina (bass), Tom Pope (drums) I’ve spoken at length about how I don’t have the most expansive of musical educations.

Musical Taste: Videosongs, viral musicians, and the music of your old computer

I honestly don’t think I could get through the day without some form of music.
