Leave it to Spike Jonze to direct one crazy ass video for the Beastie Boys. Watching this action figure video adventure featuring the B-Boys against the Anti B-Boys reminded me of being a kid all over again…
Have you even heard of Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears yet?
Watch this video they just dropped for “Mustang Ranch” and become a fan already!!!
As if the song was not hilarious enough, the video just makes it that much more entertaining. “Mustang Ranch” is off of Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears latest album Scandalous. The album is out now and if you liked that song, boy are you in for a treat.
What? You want another? Sure, why not:
One of my favorite up and coming punk acts, The Menzingers, have just released a video for “Irish Goodbyes”. This song is a brand spanking new track that will appear on a summer compilation.
Check it out:
Fun little fact about this video: It was taken in one take (audio / video / live footage). Impressive.
The Menzingers will be playing Cleveland soon. If you have not seen them live yet and enjoy good punk rock, then you have no excuse to not hit up this show.

Not sure why it took me so long to see a preview for the upcoming movie Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, but now that I saw it I am already making top secret arrangements with myself to see it in the theater. The movie looks bad ass! When I first heard about it I was like “Oh boy, another Michael Cera movie….woo”.
Then I saw the preview which completely changed my mind:
The dork in me loves the comic book / video game-like fighting scenes. The hopeless romantic in me of course likes the whole boy-falls-in-love-with-girl-too-good-for-him-but-is-different-in-that-he-is-not-like-the-rest-and-she-falls-for-him. The director, Edgar Wright, is the man behind Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz. Add in a bitching soundtrack and it looks as if I am going to go to the movies this summer after all. The soundtrack drops tomorrow and the movie premiers this weekend.

If you have not heard yet, tonight is the night that the Man Vs. Food visits Cleveland to take on the Mighty Melt Challenge at Melt Bar & Grilled. Make sure you turn to the Travel Channel at 9pm to see what happens when Adam Richman takes on an almost 5lb. grilled cheese sandwich.
Just look at this thing:
I should also mention that yours truly will be cheering on Adam. Literally. I will be behind him to the right of the screen during the actual challenge (see here for a previous post on my experience). Come 9pm tonight you will find out if he conquers the sandwich or if he fails.
I’m getting hungry just thinking about it…
