Silent Sickness

By Renee Shepard, published on Sep 26, 2009

...of all things keep them off drugs, I strongly believe everyone at least once a day should review thier family and friends and attempt to diagnose this silent sickness while the person is still here with us.

Kurt's suicide bothers me the most, he couldn't hack it, writing wasn't helping, music wasn't helping, nothing helped so the only thing left he thought he could do right was death which he certainly mastered on his first try.

Silent Sickness is no joke, please help the mentally ill have a reason to live by supporting them and helping them maybe if just one person cared... (more)

Buying Steroids Online

By john_arnolds, published on Sep 26, 2009

As many people I’ve grown accustomed to buying stuff on the net - from software and music, computer-hardware, to some really weird items from ebay. The thing is, it grows on you, and once you get used to it you have certain expectations that one reflects on all internet dealings.

Movie Minute: Jennifer's Body

By M.J. Hamada, published on Sep 24, 2009

... Brody), whom she considers "extra salty." Nikolai looks Jennifer over and tells his bandmates that she's the one: the virgin they will sacrifice in honor of "the man downstairs."

Yes, the members of Low Shoulder are Satan worshippers, and they believe that such an offering will send their music career into the stratosphere. Little do these dim bulbs know (most of the characters are dim bulbs), Jennifer is not a virgin. Which means that their sacrifice does not take. Which means that when they murder Jennifer, she does not die; she transmogrifies. Jennifer the vamp becomes Jennifer the ... (more)

The Road To Happiness

By Glenn T, published on Sep 23, 2009

...(e.g. Motley Crue, Poison, Def Leppard) insisted on couching their power chords and fast-paced drums with impossibly high-pitched lyrics and lyricists who always seemed, despite their decidedly feminine look and sound, impossibly bad ass.I remember the open disdain my parents had for this music and the furtive way I had to listen to it. I remember the excitement it built in me, and the bigger life it promised that helped me break out of the orbit of my small town at 18.

...ever eat. And this is not even notable. Just another typical encounter. And you find in yourself an overwhelming desire to give back. To contribute and be part of it.Sigh….I’m sure I’ll continue going to these Burning Man parties. It’s a good brand, Burning Man. The music and art are top notch. Beautiful, sexy people abound. And I’m sure a lot of the money’s going into camps and art. But I fear my innocence is gone. The parties and culture may seem, from here on out, a glittering, fur-lined shell. The spirit that formed it gone. Hibernating,... (more)
