The Third Shift

A vagabond who's made his home in the Pacific Northwest.

Great gift from the lady friend.

DeAndre Jordan murdered Brandon Knight. Everyone saw it. Even Jordan made a face at what he’d done.

Grohl behind the kit for QOTSA again? FUCK AND YES.

(via BBC - Newsbeat - Dave Grohl joins Queens Of The Stone Age on new album)

These dog breed posters aren’t really “minimalist” despite what BuzzFeed says, but they’re still cool.

Dave Grohl: fighting thirst as well as Foo.

Afghan Whigs tickets arrived! November 2nd can’t come soon enough.

So this video of 100 rock riffs played in one take by an employee at the Chicago Music Exchange is pretty freaking awesome. What’s really admirable is the order structure in order to facilitate ease, switching between standard and drop D tuning, and bringing the slide in, never mind switching with ease between effects.

That said, there are a few faults:

  • repetition of certain artists at the expense of adding another riff or two
  • not enough thrash metal (no Slayer, Pantera, Megadeth, or Anthrax)
  • not enough 70-80s punk riffs at all (you can’t tell me the Clash, Black Flag, Talking Heads, Television, Fugazi, etc. didn’t have riffs, because that’s not true.)
  • mislabeling of “Pictures of Matchstick Men” as a Camper van Beethoven riff when it was by the Status Quo
  • no early Radiohead from The Bends or OK Computer

Either way, well done, Chicago Music Exchange.

Probably the only part of the MTV Movie Awards worth caring about.

The Internet was made for supercuts like this. Also porn, but, y’know what I mean. Pain don’t hurt.

Sorry ‘bout your tablecloth.

Raylan Givens.

Missed you so much, Justified. Glad you’re back.

As far as I’m concerned, it’s a damned shame that a field as potentially dynamic and vital as journalism should be overrun with dullards, bums, and hacks, hag-ridden with myopia, apathy, and complacence, and generally stuck in a bog of stagnant mediocrity. If this is what you’re trying to get The Sun away from, then I think I’d like to work for you.

Hunter S. Thompson, from a cover letter written to the editor of the Vancouver Sun. The number of fucks HST appears to have given about his professional life, outside of the goals he set for himself, is zero.

I can’t get over the size of this beard. 

I like to think he grew it in all of 2 days.

I want to at least approach this majesty come the beginning of Novembeard.

Five days left of regular graveyard shift work. One work week of shows to go. My vacation starts after next Wednesday’s shift. After that, I forsake the life of a daysleeper.

You’re damned right this gets “The Final Countdown” treatment.
