01. The Year Punk Broke (Above)
“A documentary of life on the road with Sonic Youth and Nirvana – during their tour of Europe in late 1991. Also featuring live performances by Dinosaur Jr, Babes In Toyland, The Ramones and Gumball.” (The Documentarian)
02. Luke Will Miss Strip Clubs When He Becomes Miami’s Mayor
“Luther Campbell knows a thing or two about politics. As front man of Miami bass outfit 2 Live Crew, Luke has had his share of run-ins with politicians. In 1990, the group’s third album, Nasty As They Wanna Be, was ruled obscene and illegal to sell in U.S. District Court. The ruling was overturned in Supreme Court two years later. Now, almost 20 years later, Luke has his eye on the other side of politics.” (XXL)
03. Sample Sleuthing
“A couple of weeks back, a forum member on the-breaks.com managed to solve one of the oldest sampling mysteries still out there: where did the bassline for “Shook Ones II” come from? Amazing, for fifteen years, no one had figured this out though that wasn’t for lack of trying.” (Soul Sides)
04. Also, clothes are pretty. So there. Nyah.
“Yesterday, I read an interesting little article that included a comment by Reese Witherspoon; she appeared to suggest that people working in fashion ‘lacked perspective’. My first reaction to this was a little petty, in retrospect, but I couldn’t help but think, ‘What – this? Coming from an actress?!’ In a way, people working in fashion deal with much more tangible aspects than those in film, unless you count documentary or biographical work, I guess.” (Tokyo Tombola)
