The Jam: About the Young Idea

  Directed by Bob Smeaton At times it’s more like an infomercial than an actual documentary.  A big part of the focus of this film is the lasting influence the Jam had on their fans, but that comes at the expense of seeing more things you might expect (and want) to see in a documentary about […]

Crappy Flying Disc Happy Meal Toy

How to Train Your Dragon 2 Happy Meal Toy at McDonalds Really, a tiny plastic non Frisbee licensed piece of crap with a lenticular image on it? Talk about an Unhappy Meal™. Even though they actually do sort of fly, it’s still going to be played with for a grand total of 5 minutes tops. […]

The Dirty Souf: Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale Review

420 Extra Pale Ale from Sweetwater Brewing Now this is what I’m talking about! Nothing fancy. Just a good, solid pale ale. I guess they do call it “Extra” but it really isn’t by today’s standards. There’s no big-dick drum-beating hop-machismo here. It’s just a clean, drinkable beer; something that has been surprisingly hard to […]

Wizard Shit: Magic Hat Elder Betty Beer Review

Apparently this beer is is weisse-style that is flavored with elder berry. I have no idea what an elder berry tastes like. All I know is Voldemort wanted to get the Elder Wand in Harry Potter and that it turned out to be overrated. In the books, the Elder Wand was one of the three […]

Two Beer Betts: Tallboys of Genesee Cream Ale

Welcome one and all! Welcome to my first brew review for S&A. I used to do these for Born Ugly zine and have been missing a reason to justify my drinking habit ever since Born Ugly went the way of Alien Workshop. Since that time I’ve had to curtail my expensive taste somewhat (a lot), […]

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.

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

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 […]
