Music Discovery Tuesday – Who Needs “Five-Hour Energy” Shots When You’ve Got “Fang Island”?

2010 August 31

It’s 3pm, your eyelids are getting heavy and you need a jolt of something to get you through the rest of the day.  Instead of a cup of coffee, soda, or a Red Bull, slap on some headphones and crank up Fang Island’s self-titled album.  This album is bursting with explosive energy; just over 30 minutes of mostly-instrumental uplifting guitar-heavy rock.  The sparse vocals on the album are mostly “ooh’s” and “ahh’s”, which you’ll find yourself immediately “singing” along with.  The band describes their own sound as “everyone high-fiving everyone.” This video of them playing at a kindergarten embodies that idea perfectly, I think. read more…

“The Other Guys” – I Want My Money Back, Adam Mckay. Why Don’t You Reimburse Me From Your Bloated Salary?

2010 August 12

Adam McKay, laughing his way to the bank.

I rarely wake up angry, but I did today.  That’s because I was subjected to Adam Mckay’s piece-of-garbage film, “The Other Guys,” last night.  Despite McKay’s self-righteous limousine-liberal politics, I tend to love his movies.  In fact, “Step Brothers” is one of my favorite comedies of the past five years and has a chance to make it’s way into my top 10 favorite comedies of all-time.  However, though I haven’t yet paid my friend back for the movie ticket he so graciously bought for me (thanks Ryan), McKay robbed me of money and time last night.  I’m going to have to respectfully disagree with my fellow NRB contributer Chris Yogerst on this one – while “The Other Guys” delivered several laughs in the first half of the film, everything after the halfway point left me with a bad taste in my mouth. read more…

Music Discovery Tuesday: Perfect End-of-Summer Beach Listening

2010 August 10

When I think of perfect summer music, I envision accessible, breezy tunes that are suitable both in the background or with the volume cranked up – something to listen to in the car with all the windows down or with a cold drink and some buddies on the beach.  Bob Marley, the Beach Boys, and Creedence Clearwater Revival immediately come to mind.  Here’s a new one for the summer rotation: “Big Echo” by the Morning Benders. read more…

Music Discovery Tuesday – Good Music Isn’t Dead, It’s Just Hiding. First Example: Mumford and Sons

2010 July 27

This is the first of a series of music-related posts to appear weekly on NewsReal Blog in The Concession Stand, our sub-blog devoted to arts, entertainment, and popular culture.  I’ll focus on albums, sometimes new and sometimes not so new, that NewsReal readers may not have heard before but might want to check out.  Although the mainstream music industry has flooded the Billboard top 40 with the mind-numbing packaged pop sounds of no-talent acts such as Britney Spears and Lady Gaga, rest assured there is still good music being made.  You just have to look a little harder. read more…

A Moron From the New York Times – He Came, He Saw, He Misunderstood

2010 June 30

Robert Wright’s idiocy is truly a sight to behold.  For those of you who don’t know who he is (and I don’t blame you), he’s the editor-in-chief of a blog nobody reads and a weekly online opinion columnist for a pathetic newspaper in decline.  Despite his irrelevance, I think it’s important to point out his foolish misunderstanding of the global Jihad.  His June 29th NYT opinion piece, The Myth of Modern Jihad is an attack on a Daniel Pipes article and an assessment of Faisal Shahzad’s recent guilty plea as the failed Times Square Bomber.  Wright, as do many other progressive knuckleheads and half-wits, suggests that we may be able to win the war against Jihadists if we would only immediately withdraw from Afghanistan and stop using military force against Muslim countries altogether. read more…

The Blueprint for Beating the Campus Jihad and Stopping the Second Holocaust

2010 June 24

Pro-Holocaust Activist Amir Abdel Malik-Ali

Fighting back the wave of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiment on campus can be a daunting task.  The “Unholy Alliance” of the Muslim student groups and campus leftists works tirelessly to demonize Israel and marginalize those of us who battle on her behalf.  In addition, University administrators, professors, and the “progressive” Jewish campus organizations consistently hinder the efforts of pro-Israel students to fight back. With the cards seemingly stacked against us, it is vital to understand and promote examples of successful efforts to turn back the Jihadist movement. Here is one such example.

Finally, after years of frustration, something effective is being done about the anti-Semitic climate at UC Irvine, but I’m not referring to the recent decision by UC Irvine to suspend the MSU for a year.  As significant as the suspension may seem it’s only temporary and the MSU members will remain on campus with the ability to continue to harass Jewish students.  In the past there have been some admirable student warriors fighting to push back the rampant MSU (Reut Cohen and Jonathan Constantine, to name a couple), but they have constantly faced an uphill battle due to lack of numbers and the impotence of the major Jewish organizations on campus.  Recently, a sizeable force of concerned community members has mobilized and is now providing students with support and desperately needed numbers on the campus during events. read more…
