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… 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… 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.

Here you'll… More »

The ‘Gum Bowl: Photos Of The Tournament

Imagine getting a bunch of your favorite comedians and musicians into a bowling alley, telling them they were there for a good cause, then getting them liquored up and to talk trash on each other while throwing gutter balls for charity. Bring video cameras. And still cameras. Sit back and watch the madness unfold. Yesterday'… More »

New Jemina Pearl (Feat. Iggy Pop & Thurston Moore) Video – “I Hate People” (Stereogum Premiere)

We've been through this already, but it bears repeating because it keeps happening: In 2009 Iggy Pop somehow became the king of oddball duets (often with younger ladies). He's also the best part of this campy video for Jemina Pearl's Break It Up lead "I Hate People" even though he doesn't physically show… More »

New Jemina Pearl (Feat Iggy Pop) – “I Hate People”

For Iggy Pop's most recent curious career turn, he's doing a poppy duet with his granddaughter (just kidding) ex-Be Your Own Pet vocalist Jemina Pearl. The track's "I Hate People" from her forthcoming solo debut Break It Up. It may very well be the happiest forced-rhyme sing-song about hating people you'll hear all… More »

Jemina Pearl Posts Three New Solo Tracks

The ex-Be Your Own Pet vocalist has been busy with Sonic Youth (and vice versa), but she found the time to post three new, poppy solo tracks at MySpace. Folks who attended her live solo debut at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg should've heard the cocaine-fueled "Heartbeats" (not a Knife cover), the… More »

Sonic Youth recently road tested some of The Eternal in South America and since then have been working on a bunch of projects that actually have nothing to do with their much-anticipated Matador debut.

Jemina Pearl Makes Solo Debut In Brooklyn

Those of you afraid Jemina Pearl's post-Be Your Own Pet "legacy" would be capped by her cover of "Sheena Is a Punk Rocker" with the ever grim Thurston Moore should likely stop worrying about things like that, but can also rest assured the gal has more Karen O stage antics (+ Kare… More »

Kevin Shields wasn't the only one doing interviews at ATP. After his Don't Look Back set, looking back on Psychic Hearts, Thurston Moore sat with a Rolling Stone film crew to offer his thoughts on the ATP Festival past and present. Predictable topic, but the video interview is interesting mostly because it's Thursto… More »
