Brown Man Says Goodbye To Stereogum, Heads To Television, Wants To Thank You

A note to future departing music bloggers: Listening to Sigur Rós while writing a goodbye post is probably a bad choice. A note to future humans on saying goodbye after nearly eight(!) years: Do it in person. That's how I tried to break this to Scott, but due to some crossed wires we wound u… More »

Come To Nitehawk Cinema For The Opening Run Of DOSA HUNT, A Film By Amrit Singh

Some of you may remember the month of February, which was about eight months ago. On Valentine's Day, I released the trailer for a film I've been making called DOSA HUNT.

CMJ 2011: Class Superlatives & Our Finest Photos

We're on the other side of CMJ now, which you could probably tell by the uptick in the music news cycle, or by some bloggers' (could be any bloggers, no way to know who I am talking about) bleary eyes and corresponding level of risibility. Stereogum threw a couple of parties early on, then shifted… More »

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart Bring “Heart In Your Heartbreak” To Letterman

I remember hearing the 15-minute debut self-titled EP that landed Brooklyn's the Pains, then a trio, their Band To Watch in 2007, and being struck with how well chosen and rendered their influences were. Last week I spoke with Matt Pinfield for his new series 120 Seconds (a new companion to the resurrected 120 Minutes,… More »

The ‘Gum Bowl: The Outtakes Reel

After rolling out this video series in which we met the bowlers, watched the first round of the tournament and championship match, there's only one respectable place to go: all the tequila shots and genitalia euphemisms that for some reason our video editors felt weren't germane to clips about charitable bowling. Might wanna plug i… More »

The ‘Gum Bowl: The Championship Match

So you met the bowlers as they met each other and their teams, started talking trash and getting trashed. Then there was the riveting first round matchups and the losers very graciously losing (especially Larry Murphy). Now it's the CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH, for all the marbles. Or at least, the main marble. And the festive trophy… More »

The ‘Gum Bowl: Meeting, Greeting & Trash Talking

You've seen the photos from our inaugural charitable celebrity bowling tournament -- now comes the even more fun part. After meeting and getting their team assignments, our celebrity bowlers took no time to start trashing each other (because, charity), so it is a good thing we had cameras rolling every second. Here you'll find our… More »

Exposure: Peter Gabriel/Neon Indian

The video you're about to watch is a career highlight for me. I became a Peter Gabriel fan(atic) after seeing "Digging In The Dirt" on VH1 in the dog days of '92. That September, prior to the release of Us (i.e., Peter's followup to one of the greatest albums of all time) Peter participated i… More »
