Words/Photos by Reverend Justito
Friends you don’t need me to tell you that we are smack dab in the middle of a baby boom. Perhaps it is because my wife and I just welcomed our first little bundle of joy into the world, but everywhere I look I see pregnant women. The final show I saw before my self-imposed let’s be a Dad instead of a ... Read More

Meanwhile, over in Hollywood, the Silversun Pickups (who are currently on tour) appeared on Conan. I'm not calling them "SSPU" because it sounds like the name of a boat that smells bad. You know what doesn't smell bad, or even sound bad? This awesome video below of the band performing "The Pit". Check it out.

You could use a ton of clichés to describe our pal Phishbeard. Let’s just say homeboy marches to the beat of his own drum. A nomad, a free spirit, someone who shoots first and asks questions later. Homeboy spent Memorial Day weekend at the Gorge enjoying the 2012 Sasquatch Music Festival. He took no less than 1200 photos. Here are the best ones. We hope you enjoy.

Silversun Pickups Make A Letterman Pitstop 6/4/12
I jumped on the Silversun Pickups band wagon a few years ago with "Lazy Eye", and even I'll admit, it's funny to say that you didn't know the lad singer was a dude until you saw them perform. Truth is, in the realm music that comes out these days, Silversun Pickups are excelling by not putting out terrible music. Does it blow your mind? Some people it might (I wanna see them live, see what happens), ... Read More

Silversun Pickups Serve Up 'Bloody Mary' For Jimmy Kimmel
As yes there I was last night getting into bed after watching my beloved San Francisco Giants defeat the dreaded Los Angeles Dodgers out at Chavez Latrine. The television was already on and there was Johnny Depp plugging the new Warner Bros. Pictures smash hit Dark Shadows. I enjoyed his brief talk with Jimmy Kimmel Live host Jimmy Kimmel about him and Hunter S. Thompson sabotaging Don Johnson. Then I fell asleep before Silversun ... Read More
