Yeah, I'm starting to plan at least one live show in LA.
Are you or do you know a really reliable and nice live sound engineer in the LA area? Here is my craigslist post.
Our friends Neil & Paul visit New York City in this delightful short film.
"Pope-o" is the winner of our Aqua Teen Hunger Force Crap Contest, which asked readers to post pictures of themselves making funny faces to Flickr. He gained unfair advantage by using an ignorant child -- and gaining unfair advantage is the best way to win.
"Pope-O," please email me your address so I can send your crap (once it gets to me).
The movie, by the way, opens today I think. I saw it and it was funny.
KRS-One and Marley Marl are working on a new project together, an LP called "Hip-Hop Lives." I think at this point, most hip-hop fans are a little scared to get involved with The Blastmaster, but early returns on this record have been fantastic.
Witness: "Kill A Rapper (MP3)."
Brian Stack is a long-time writer and performer on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. We talk about his early career as an improviser in Wisconsin -- at a theater which produced Chris Farley and Joan Cusack, among others, his masters degree (really!) and of course his time writing for Conan. His characters include the Ghost Crooner and Frankenstein (above).

A guy from The Sundance Channel talks with the cast & crew of The Ten (pretty much all of them).
Here's a clip from one of Louis Theroux's wonderful documentaries. You may remember Louis' show "Weird Weekends," or his work on TV Nation. In this segment, he visits Pen & Pixel, the legendary hip-hop graphic designers.
The clip comes courtesy of our man Noz at Cocaine Blunts & Hip-Hop Tapes. If you want to learn a bit more about Louis, check out this exhaustive interview at Quickstop Entertainment.
Alternately, you can just wait a week or two and listen to him on The Sound.
My summer intern-to-be, Tim Noble, is looking for a summer sublet near UCLA. If anyone knows anybody or anything, please drop him a line at email@example.com. He seems very nice, and I have spoken with his references who speak very highly of him.
This new video from the Human Giant is amazing. Also, a little offensive, so if the idea of something called "Lil 9/11" offends you, don't watch it.
