Ah yes, it's LoveFest this weekend! There'll be lots of groovy floats and bunny-eared revellers passing out from lack of H2O -- hopefully shirtless. Love! Read more »

Erotic Art Alley

(0)

The Christian Right has their landlocked panties in a tussle over Folsom Street Fair's promotional "Last Supper Poster" -- and I strongly urge you to check out the anti-gay "Americans For Truth" Web site for a good chuckle -- but the poster's nothing, eroto-artistically speaking, when it comes to what Folsom's got in store: the first ever Folsom Erotic Art Alley!

Something horrible happened.

The promo package, marked Special, arrived on my desk in May from Ultra Records in New York City.

I went to the Bad Brains show at Slim’s last night. The sad admission: I’d never seen them before. I mean, I had, for the Rise (Epic, 1993) tour with Israel Joseph I on vocals instead of HR, which really doesn’t count, now does it? Sort of like going to the Wonka Chocolate Factory and being shown around by someone named “Millie Monka” instead of Willie Wonka. Read more »
