Vintage Video: Kraftwerk “Tanzmusik”

April 29th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Much as I love watching four android-looking-dudes standing in front of a projection screen computing while the techno-fied hits play, I think I dig Kraftwerk’s early live presentation a bit more — it’s a mix of electronic key and drum synths the band created itself and Florian Schneider’s acoustic flute. Here they perform the song […]

Double Feature: Baby Mama + Harold and Kumar: Escape From Guantanamo Bay

April 28th, 2008 · 133 Comments

Summer movie season isn’t technically here yet, and up until now this year’s been total crap for movies. The last one I saw in a theater was Rambo, and though I can’t exactly knock it, I can say with certainty that it deserved its January release slot. But the last two weeks of April have […]

Monday Muxtape Update 04.27.08: Jus’ Punkin’ Wit’ cha

April 28th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Well, we kicked off the first Dudecast this week, an accomplishment that anyone would be proud of, so that’s my reason for not updating the site so much. Luckily I can always make time for a new muxtape mix. This week I’m looking back on some of my favorite early punk/post-punk records. So turn this […]

Monday Muxtape Update, 04.21.08: The Kid Gets Heavy

April 22nd, 2008 · 5 Comments

Alright, it’s been a busy week and there probably won’t be an audio review podcast this week, but here’s my muxtape update. This week we’ve got some tracks from the late-’60s and early-’70s that could roughly be called proto-metal with some big ‘uns (Deep Purple’s “Fireball” and Black Sabbath’s “Behind the Wall of Sleep”) and […]

Vintage Video: The Move “I Can Hear the Grass Grow” + “California Man”

April 16th, 2008 · 2 Comments

To compliment yesterday’s Audio Review Podcast, here’s a couple related videos. As the cliché goes, the Move were the best British band never to break the U.S. charts; it sticks because it’s true. This first video, a fiery live version of the 1967 U.K. number two hit “I Can Hear the Grass Grow,” is probably […]

Audio Review Podcast #002

April 15th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Here’s PDD’s second audio review podcast. This time I discuss one of my favorite albums, the Move’s fourth and final release, Message From the Country (1971), and the Electric Light Orchestra’s first album, called No Answer (1972) in the States. What great album covers, huh? ELO, of course, was formed by the remaining members of […]

Monday Muxtape Update, 04.14.08: The Odd Pop Mix

April 14th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Wuzzup? OK, so I’ve nixed the downloadable MP3 podcasts and decided to just keep a regular update on This week I’ve got a weird ’70s pop/eclecto mix going on, some well known stuff (Rundgren, Yes, Lindsay Buckingham) thrown in with some out-there shit (YMO, Battiato, the Homosexuals). Read on for the tracklist …

The Garfield Post, part 2: The resurrection of Garfield post

April 11th, 2008 · 3 Comments

(Continued from part 1)
So anyways, it’s strange how these things come in waves, like a crate of crappy Ukranian-made Garfield dolls that were lost in a shipwreck and washed up on a beach seven years later. Because not only has the Garfield death conspiracy recently come to light, but two separate visionaries have revived the […]
