Hold Up – Taylor Swift Owns Other Bands’ Tour Busses?

I was watching this interview w/ 311‘s Nick Hexum for no reason yesterday, and towards the end he mentions that Taylor Swift bought all the best tour busses in the country, and rents them out to other bands. That’s crazy talk. What a hustle. 311 has been touring as long as Taylor Swift has been alive, and she already has that much money? To lease busses out to veteran touring bands. Her estimated net worth is $80 Million. I don’t usually like harping on such superficiality but damn, I want that $$$!

So very true. These guys entered the psyche of all cats and explained their simple world perfectly. And hilariously.

Such musicality. Me gusta. Flying Overseas is flawless.


I can’t properly describe this video, but it makes me laugh.


Theophilus Murders this first verse. Compared to other rappers out there now, I got nothin against A$AP Rocky, but he doesn’t belong on this track. Sometimes if you throw a musical rapper on a track w/ a real hood guy, the hood guy gets shown up. Like ridiculously. I usually only listen to this first verse. Good shit though.

Wait, the Emmy’s were last night?

Chances are last night, like myself, you watched football and formulated conspiracy theories for why Roger Goodell and the NFL Always want the Patriots to lose. But some other total Bullshit occurred elsewhere in the world of Pop Culture. Some deserving, and then some highly questionable winners at The Emmy’s. Observe.

  • Modern Family  beat out Girls, and The Big Bang Theory among others for best Comedy Series, which is good and makes sense to me since everyone loves that show (and here’s why).
  • Jon Cryer from Two and A Half Men beat out Jim Parsons, Louis C.K., and Alec Baldwin for Comedy Actor which is weird cuz I didn’t know that show was still on.
  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus won best Comedy Actress for Veep, and I’m happy for that talented milf.
  • Supporting Comedy Actor & Actress went to Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet and Julie Bowen (yet another milf) respectively which also makes sense, though I wish they went to Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig.


  • Best Drama Series, Best Drama Actor, & Best Drama Actress ALL went to Homeland? 

Wtf? Who’s ever even heard of Homeland, let alone seen it? There’s NO WAY it’s better than Game of Thrones or Boardwalk Empire, just no way. Those shows are incredible. Each episode of Game of Thrones is like a feature film itselfAnd I’ve never seen an episode of Breaking Bad, but I’m kinda shocked neither the show nor Bryan Cranston won. Though Aaron Paul won for Supporting Drama Actor.

But seriously, if the Academy is just gonna throw Emmy’s at Homeland and expect us all to watch, their bonkers. There’s just not enough time in the world. I got my Boardwalk and my Game of Thrones. That’s all I need. And Always Sunny. and Football.

P.S. the refs DO indeed deserve FULL BLAME for last night

What’s with all these hipster band names?

Imagine Dragons (K!)

Portugal the Man (I hear he’s a big Linguiça fan)

  • Lady Antebellum (for a group of two men and one female?)
  • Edward Sharp & the Magnetic Zeros (kinda like that one for no particular reason)
  • Two Door Cinema Club (shut up)
  • Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti (sounds Riveting!)

I feel like a ton of them are just “Insert a season & an animal:”

  • Autumn’s Owl
  • Zebra Winter
  • Summer of the Platypus 

Yes those are fake. Still. #HipsterNonsense
