The Gorburger Show - Jack Black, Eagles of Death Metal <3 Forever…
Music, life and culture conversationalists with no intention of building empires who love and hate with equal ease.
There are two types of rock bands in the world, there’s one that comes out and masturbates for everyone to see and one that comes out and screws everybody in the room. I’m trying to get down, you know what I mean?
Ladies and gentlemen, the indelible Jesse Hughes.
A few minutes before heading to Snail’s to harass trick-or-treaters and after listening to Ministry’s “Everyday is Halloween,” I put together this list of songs for the holiday. Some obvious, some not so much, these tracks remind me of scary and/or Halloween-related stuff. —Count Cheepcula

One day while watching True Blood, Cheep & Snail wondered what kind of songs would they dance to were they professional teases. Here’s what they came up with.
Perhaps it was the PG Tips overload or the fact that we had not seen each other in a long time —a week is a long time here— but we decided to play DJ and had a blast choosing songs based on each others tune. Snail started with Metronomy and Cheep ended it with Modeselektor. Also, if you have seen the movie I Love You, Man you may understand the title of the playlist and why we chose the picture above.

It’s the last day of the decade and to ring it in right, we’re going to reminisce about what was so our brains can be fresh for new, good times!
Here are our favorite shows of the year.
Bat for Lashes @ Bowery Ballroom
Bat for Lashes was absolutely magical. The crowd at Bowery was in a lull and behaving well, she pranced around stage with grace and her voice just had/has an amazingly powerful effect. During “Horse and I” yours truly got a bit choked up, I felt a deep sense of connection to the room and the music and for once felt its unifying power over people. Her lyrics also speak of things like that, and given we’re in quite a positive journey it really touched me. —Snail
I’m so glad we got the tickets to Bat for Lashes. Usually on such short notice you don’t find a soul on Craigslist that’s willing to part with their tickets at a reasonable price (i.e. face value) but if John ever reads this, thank you so much. The show was incredible. Natasha Khan’s beauty and talent are mind blowing. When she sat at the harmonium in front of us, I couldn’t believe that voice was really coming out of her person, so flawless. It boggles my mind people pay hundreds to see a joke of a singer like Britney Spears lip sync while someone like Natasha puts on a show worth many times over what you paid for it. At the same time, however, I’m glad she’s our little secret so to speak. She had everyone in awe of her. Our heads followed her on stage, moving from left to right depending where she was and when. After not being able to sleep without listening to Two Suns for the past few weeks, seeing songs like “Two Planets,” “Daniel,” “Good Love,” “Siren Song” and “Travelling Woman” live was the icing on the cake. Great first time seeing her, it sure won’t be the last.—Cheep
