LAWRENCE ARMS 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY DVD GETS A RELEASE DATE, FINALLY...

"That's right! After three years, a long silence, an audit by the ever-courteous IRS and a lot of speculation, we here at Lawrence Arms HQ are pleased to announce that the long awaited 10th anniversary DVD shot live at the Metro is finally coming out, courtesy of Fat Wreck Chords and Crankstrap Productions. To answer the question on everyone's mind: I don't know what the fuck took so long, but it had something to do with the fact that I guess there was something weird about Neil on the undoctored footage and so we had to get a group of specialists to go in and meticulously remove his gigantic robot dong from each frame. Whatever".

An Evening of Extraordinary Circumstance is due out June 5 on Fat Wreck. For more info and to pre-order (like me), go here...

RIP GERMANO MOSCONI - PORCO DIO!!!

Controversial Italian sportswriter and news presenter Germano Mosconi died earlier this month following a lengthy illness. I only knew him briefly, thanks to an Italian friend, but goddamn he made me laugh. Check out these classic outtakes.

2:11 - 2:18 is the best.

Porco = pig, dio = god.

COURTNEY LOVE: THE MUPPETS ARE RAPING KURT'S MEMORY



Courtney Love has accused the new Muppets film of raping Kurt Cobain's memory by covering "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Funny, I thought that was her job...

According to TMZ, Love sold half the rights to Cobain's back catalogue to Primary Wave Music, who are free to distribute his music and gave permission for the song to be used. According to reports, PWM asked former Nirvana members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl if they could use the track as well. And get this, some of the resulting royalties go to Love and her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.

Oh yeah, and just in case you thought she wasn't completely bonkers, check out NME's story on the accusations that Love killed Frances Bean's cat Peadbody - "It was a mountain lion that killed Peabody!!" Frances Bean filed for a restraining order from Love in 2009.

Bizarre...

ATARI TEENAGE RIOT: NIC ENDO



Old Blue Last - March 01

It was a '90s crowd. Not hip Sonic Youth, Cobain '90s, but genuine awkward misfits that just couldn't shake their uncontaminated high school awkwardness. Dead Wolf Club's guitar-smashing geek rage was a perfect soundtrack for my sudden warp through time. Atari Teenage Rose went on an hour late. Alec Empire snuck on stage and hid behind the digital hardcore generator. Then Atari Teenage Riot exploded and kept… on… going…

THE DICTATOR: TRAILER & WHY DONALD TRUMP WANTS TO PUNCH COHEN IN THE FACE



Check out the trailer for Sacha Baron Cohen's latest The Dictator. One person that didn't get the joke, Donald Trump, wants to
punch Cohen in the face after he appeared at the Oscars dressed as Admiral General Shabazz Aladeen and dumped the ashes of Kim Jong-il all over Ryan Seacrest.

Just like Borat and Bruno, The Dictator was directed by Seinfeld legend Larry Charles. So you know this shit's going to be awesome...

And in other news, Cohen has signed a three film deal with Paramount. Check it out.
