Vanguard yourself

So I just watched Violet Chachki‘s newest music video Vanguard, and what can say?

Fucking FAGTASTIC!!!!! Did you see that breast plate?  It nearly took me for a loop.  And as for the rest of it, beautiful .  From the trio of surprised men before she walked into the bathroom, and back to the next trio of so-called thugs attacking poor Violet.

Well, they got what they deserved by the end…right?  A fucking free-for-all all, over their faces.

As my boyfriend so eloquently put it, “They came, they attacked.  It’s time to fight back.”  I think that perfectly defines the message of this video.

I simply can’t wait to see what else this Bettie Page for our time, Miss Violet Chachki, has in store for us.  Its only been a few weeks since she was crowned, but she is already taking the world by storm, and it all started with her first music video Bettie

Be sure you check out Vanguard by Miss Violet Chachki.  And if you havent seen it yet, watch Bettie as well.  You won’t regret it.

How to Start a Record Label from Your Bedroom: A Conversation with Funeral Sounds, Known Pleasure and Too Far Gone


One of the easiest ways to contribute to a music scene is to lay a friend’s demo to tape and upload the MP3s to Bandcamp. After a few hours at your tape deck, congratulations! You’ve got a record label! While that first step may be easy, things get exponentially more difficult and involved the more seriously you take things. Building a following, web design, promoting releases, sifting through submissions, dealing with packaging, networking, pressing vinyl and booking tours are all part of running an independent label, no matter the size. Fret not, aspiring labelhead, because for this ongoing segment, we asked some of the most exciting independent labels how to start a record label from your bedroom.

For the first installment of this feature, we talked with label founders Mark Garza (Funeral Sounds), Matt Brown (Known Pleasure) and Billy Philhower (Too Far Gone) about DIY ethics, the reemergence of physical media and…

Quotes About Card Games

The Markov Thought Chain

Last summer, I bought a book in Helsinki entitled Winning Quotations, by Markus Wartiovaara. In the chapter entitled “Game”, I found some quotations mentioning card games, which amused me since I really enjoy a certain card game. I especially like the quotation attributed to Jawaharlal Nehru.

You play the hand you’re dealt. I think the game’s worthwhile.

— Christopher Reeve

Has fortune dealt you some bad cards. Then let wisdom make you a good gamester.

— Francies Quarles

A man’s idea in a game of cards is war, cruel, devastating, and pitiless. A lady’s idea of it is a combination of larceny, embezzlement, and burglary.

— Finley Peter Dunne

The game of life is not so much in holding a good hand as playing a poor hand well.

— H. T. Leslie

Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism…

Punk rock 101 – Lesson #1

Punk rock 101 – Lesson #1

Hello there fellow punkrockers (or anyone who relates to this music). This lesson will not be genre specific, nor you will have to follow every word of it. It will just serve as a guide. Where should we begin?

Anyone who wants to start out playing punkrock (or anything related) will ask themselves: “What do I need to have or know to start playing?” Well the answer is – you don’t need a thing. First off find out what your role would be in your dream band, maybe it’s singing, maybe it’s drums, guitar, piano, kazoo, … whatever. Todays lesson will be focusing on a basic punkrock trio band (guitar, bass guitar, drums). By punkrock trio you are probably thinking of Green Day or something simmilar, but that doesn’t matter (also Green Day hasn’t been a trio since like 10 years ago). Lets start…

November Rain introduction guitar tab

The Crafting of a Melody

The song November Rain by Guns ‘n’ Roses has a really distinctive and fairly well-known piano introduction, but have we ever thought about how it might sound if played on a guitar? Well, this week I’ve been learning it on a classical guitar (I think it’s best suited to classical, but it works on any kind of guitar), and it isn’t all that hard to play. When I initially started to learn it, I searched the Internet for a tab. There weren’t many out there – perhaps unsurprisingly, considering how it’s not a guitar part. In fact, this one and a duplicate or two were all I could find.

However, there are a few things I don’t like about that tab. First of all, I think the part sounds better an octave lower than it’s written there; sure, that tab is in the same octave as it’s played on the…

If you knew me in high school…



…you knew I had a huge thing for Aladdin.

Before Aladdin was released in November 1992, I wasn’t a huge Disney kid. In fact, to this day I have yet to see The Little Mermaid or Beauty and the Beast (I can hear your collective gasps right now), but there was something about Aladdin that changed things for me.

Back then, I wasn’t aware of what that something was, but as I got older it became more obvious.

On its surface, Aladdin was colorful, funny, smart, and full of pop culture references (something that no animated films were doing at the time, let alone Disney animated films). But beneath all of that, something much more substantial was present. For me, Aladdin was an epiphany, a revelation that creative people could actually make a living making cool shit.

Before its release, I just assumed I’d graduate high school, then go on and graduate…
