In what may be the best argument ever for illegally downloading movies, George Lucas is finally releasing all 6 Star Wars titles on blu-ray, because there’s still a few dollars for him to steal from his fans. And of course because he has no idea wh…

Jack White has teamed up with Insane Clown Posse for a song called “Leck Mich Im Arsch”, which supposedly translates to “Lick Me In the Ass,” and uses a melody written by Mozart in 1782. Which all goes to support my thesis: Jack White is the James F…

In theory, a guy like Jack would never go for a girl like me. “You think I’m a baby killer, I think you’re a misogynist” isn’t exactly a strong foundation for a relationship. But hot anti-choice guys exist, and they have hit on me. And somehow, whil…

When Jupiter comes up on the horizon, I'll admit to feeling claustrophobic. This great visual experiment helps put planetary size into perspective.

And this is why I hate Shakespeare. Come on, the man just wanted to make enough money to eat. It's not rocket science!

WBEZ has a recurring segment where they have stars break down their Wikipedia pages. This week brings Marc Maron out of the Cat Ranch, and again describes his awkward Lorne Michaels encounter. It's great.

If your band ever submitted a demo to Sub Pop Records and got rejected, then you've already had the pleasure of seeing this awesome letter.

I'm pumped.
