The Worm putting in work! This is one of the most popular photographs of him putting his hustle and dedication on display. He believed in doing the dirty work and made a Hall of Fame career out of doing so.
It’s been a while, but it’s finally here! Nine years after Robert Rodriguez put Frank Miller’s “Sin City” on the silver screen he’s finally giving us the sequel, Sin City : A Dame To Kill For.
Like the first film, the movie is a star studded affair. Josh Brolin is replacing Clive Owen in the role of Dwight, but most of the cast from the first film returns along with some new faces. The sequel maintains the black and white look of Miller’s comics, but with the CG edge Rodriguez delivered in the first film.
I’ve been patiently waiting for this movie since rumors first started swirling about Angelina Jolie playing the titular character, but that apparently didn’t pan out. It’s good to finally see some solid evidence that this was in the works. I’m sure Miller fans won’t be disappointed come August 22nd.

Pretty cool seeing an old picture of these three. All badasses in their own regard. Shit, even the dude who took the photo is a legend. BA is my favorite skater, Elissa was the only girl you could play as in THPS and Bam became mega-huge for his skating, Jackass and his own show on MTV. It’s cool to know that once they were all just homies cruising the country and skating.
A new jam from one of my favorite Southern rappers, “Lac Lac”, is a track that shows off K.R.I.T’s production and his sometimes quick-sometimes smooth delivery. The beat is laid back, but does everything it needs to do to get you to nod your head along. The chorus has a Bone Thugz feel that boasts a catchiness K.R.I.T delivers with his signature Southern slang. A$AP Ferg lends his character to the second verse fitting in with ease.
I can’t wait to hear more from Krizzle and see what happens when his new effort Cadillactica hits retail.
Say what you will about them and their (painfully inaccurate) “Nu-Metal” labeling, but Linkin Park is one of my favorite bands. Meteora is one of my all time favorite albums, and “Faint” is probably my favorite song from it. It was the song that got me excited about the new album, and the video is still one of their more memorable ones for me.
Some of the stuff from their last album, Living Things, wasn’t really my speed - but it’s still a solid album.
LP has grown, progressed, evolved, and shape-shifted over the years but all the changing they’ve done as people has been right alongside the changes I was going through.
