Bonnaroo 2010: What a Loud, Smelly Trip It’s Been

Posted by Marty McSupaFly on June 22nd, 2010. Filed under Music

When I originally told people I was going to Bonnaroo, they basically responded in three different ways:

1) “That’s really cool!”

2) “Bonna-WHO!?”

3) “Who are you and why are you telling me this? Please move over and take your hand off my leg.”

So Runs The World Away

After having the chance to listen to Josh Ritter’s new album “So Runs The World Away” from begining to end for the first time, I have to push this video because this dude is just that good.

“Rattling Locks”, a soundcheck performance by Josh Ritter and The Royal City Band in Asbury Park, NJ.

Is Cleaning Teeth Like Cleaning Toes?

Posted by Camp Anawanna on March 5th, 2010. Filed under Rants

So I was at the dentist the other day.
I absolutely dread going to the dentist.
Not necessarily because I have bad teeth problems or anything, more just the creepiness of everything being so damn sterile in there.

Anyways, we got to the end of the cleaning and it was apparently obvious that I…do not floss. I came right out and admitted to not flossing. I’m a steady 2-3 times a day brusher and mouth-washer as well, but flossing just is not my thing.

That’s when something even stranger happened.
The dentist tried to persuade me into flossing by saying:
“You wouldn’t take a shower without cleaning between your toes right? Well it’s the same thing with your teeth.”

That took me by surprise. I love showers…LOVE’EM. I also Consider myself a pretty clean person too. But shit…I don’t ACTIVELY take the time to clean between my toes when I shower. They’re right there sopping up all the soap and water from the rest of the washing…I didn’t think they needed their own attention.

Now I’m wondering if I’m in the wrong here and have been a filthy animal all this time.
So I raise the question to you Zubaz readers: Do you purposely clean between your toes?

Mouth Watering Beef

Posted by theECTOCOOLER on March 3rd, 2010. Filed under Rants

This past weekend I had the pleasure of inhaling one of the greasiest and slimiest burgers up in Albany, NY at a place called Five Guys. (When I use the word “slimiest” it is not a bad thing, I promise you.)

This thing was LOADED. Cheese, pickles, lettuce, tomato, sauteed onions, ketchup, mustard, hot sauce. The regular fries were too much to finish on top of this madness.

I’m not a man of many words, so I will leave you with this semi-decent cellphone picture I took that night.

Fat Man Illusion

Posted by Ian Valentine on February 25th, 2010. Filed under Rants

Harry Houdini, David Copperfield, George W. Bush…when it comes to deception, these men are amongst the greatest of all time.  But when it comes to being the master of using deception in order to create the greatest of illusions, they can’t hang with the common, run of the mill, fat tub-o-lard.

Everyday, right before our very eyes, countless fat men attempt a staggering feat of deception so grand, the likes of which haven’t been seen since wanksta’s tried to convince society that neck tattoos are an appropriate way to show unbridled love for someone.

What I am referring to is the self-management of the fat man jaw line. 

You don’t have to be Tony Little to realize that the chubbier you get, the more your flabby skin and gooey fat deposits engulf your bones and natural body curves, including the jaw line.  However, instead of embracing this, or maybe using this as motivation to hit the Thighmaster and Soloplex, many fat men go in a furrier direction.  Instead, they attempt to disguise their gluttonous face and trick the world into thinking they are petite by growing one of the worst facial hair monstrosities of all time, the chin strap. 


Here is Big Pun representing the fatty nation.

Maybe it’s to help them think they aren’t as gargantuan as they really are.  Maybe it’s to save what little pride and self-esteem they may have.  Maybe it’s because their face plumps up so large they don’t have enough razor to shave that big of a surface area.

Regardless of the reason, one thing is for sure…they aren’t fooling anyone but themselves.  We know the edge of the chin strap isn’t your jaw line.  We know that your jaw line is actually deep underneath that thigh of a mandible.  Hell, we may even know what you had for lunch since it’s caught in that pubic hair you call a beard.

Just do yourself and all of us a favor.  Shave it off. We see right through that gimmick.  And really, it’s ok to be fat.  I for one do not care, and I will not judge you based solely on your weight. Well, unless you can’t see your dick.  If that’s the case, then I won’t lie…I am judging you.  But generally speaking, just embrace your look and be proud of who you are.  But if you can’t and you insist on having a jaw line, hit the gym, not the Mach 3.

Chillwave Troubadours Neon Indian

Posted by Camp Anawanna on February 23rd, 2010. Filed under Music

For those whose musical tastes come directly from the TV and radio, there’s a brand new revolution in music thats happening right before your eyes on the internet.  Thanks in a large part to a social media boom with the likes of Facebook, Blip.FM and Twitter…a whole new legion of artists and buzz bands now have the opportunity to reach ears they never otherwise could have.

If this new genre were a ship, it would be docked at a huge hipster seaport in Brooklyn, NY; And if you had to pick a crew of scallywags to maintain the ships course, that bunch would be Neon Indian, an Austin, TX band who’re proving that Animal Collective and MGMT aren’t the only ones quirky enough for the masses.

Late last year they released their debut album, “Psychic Chasms” and after a few listens through, you can’t help but get excited for their sophomore follow-up.

Seriously, I challenge you to not like this song:

Man In Box

Posted by Camp Anawanna on February 23rd, 2010. Filed under On The Web

Looking to kill a few minutes this afternoon?  Check this out.

Man In Box is the brainchild of British TV presenter and DJ Tim Shaw and a few of his friends.

The Concept: Tim is locked inside a box that looks to be about 2 feet tall, 7 feet long and maybe 4 feet wide?  Ok, ok the point is…it’s REALLY small.  He will be in the box for 30 days and 30 nights.

He was driven around for 10 hours blindfolded before being put in the box, which is in an secret location.  The only information Tim has of his own whereabouts is that it’s somewhere in the UK he’s been before.

Inside the box with him is around $30k.  Anyone watching, at anytime, can attempt to guess where Tim is by dropping a pin on a Google map and hoping for the best.  Guess correctly, and the red light you see in the box turns green, Tim is immediately let out, and you…win that cold hard cash. Considering you have the entire UK to choose from, it’s nearly impossible to simply guess at his location and expect to be right….and much to Tim’s chagrin…he’s still got 20 days left.

If it’s dark…that probably means it’s lights out…so come back later or hit the official site for a 12 hr. delay feed to see what Tim was up to earlier. He’s always trying to come up with hints about his location in hopes that someone might let him free.

Sit tight and enjoy the ride that is Zubaz.
