Pine Pellet Cat Liter: No iron lung required.

No matter how much you may love your cat, cleaning a litter box is a special kind of torment. The smell of cat litter and all the dust it creates (so-called low dust or not) is enough to cause a gag reflex, even if your litter box isn’t already filled with a month’s worth of […]

Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division by Peter Hook

Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division by Peter Hook.

386 pages, perfectbound IT / Harper Collins I came into this book being predisposed to dislike Peter Hook, or “Hooky” as he is known, based solely on the portrayal of him in the movie Control, notably the scene where he’s dissecting the Buzzcocks name. He addresses that very same scene in his book, annoyed that […]

Wire: Change Becomes Us

Wire: Change Becomes Us

Change Becomes Us sounds unmistakably like Wire. It also sounds like it could have came out in the early 80′s in terms of Wire’s catalog, not the general 80′s soundscape. Wire is famous for re-contextualizing and rerecording their catalog and performances, which they continue to do here. Colin Newman revealed the tracks all have their […]

Italia Couch from Dania

This fucking Italia couch I bought from Dania

I bought this Italasofa brand couch from Dania. It has a microfiber cover and a pullout sleeper bed. I have kids and now the surface looks like a seal that was rescued from an oil slick. Less than a year into it, the part that sticks under the top cushion started to fray. A couple […]

We Got Power

We Got Power: Hardcore Punk Scenes from 1980’s Southern California

Author: David Markey and Jordan Schwartz Publisher: Bazillion Points Books Copyright: 2012 288 pages, hardcover Why am I even writing another review?

Do it best electrical pliers and friction tape

I’ve been trying to head to my near-neighborhood small, independent hardware store as much as possible insteadof heading to one of the two big national chains nearby. The limited hours can be a little inconvenient, and the selection can be a little meager, but it’s not too bad. Of course if I go to Lowes […]

Pure Fun Zine #10: 22 Year Anniversary

This is one I can really relate to. This history of Skate and Annoy is littered with the carcasses of missed self-imposed deadlines and delays due to “wanting to get things right.” Issue #10 of Pure Fun is the 22 Year Anniversary blow out. It’s almost 120 pages thick, printed on a nice almost semi […]
