  • I’m pretty sure I saw 7 Mary 3 at a Larry’s Giant Subs in Gainesville, but it might have been Silverchair.

  • “Cinnabon: World Famous Cinnamon Rolls”. I’m from Australia. I don’t know what a cinnamon roll is, but I know false advertising when I see it!

  • My first thought was, “Why the hell is Chris Cornell walking around Cinnabon without a shirt?”

    then I saw it was from the Onion! You almost got me!

  • If Kim Thayil is daytime supervisor, Jerry Cantrell must be a store manager or something.

  • I was on Rockline back in the day and asked Soundgarden if they were bringing the spoon man on tour with them. They said no.

  • maybe there is a “Smoke n Toke” next door in the mall. :)

    also, saw Chris Cornell on Leno last week. I think he needs to get the band back together. Chris is going thru a lite rock phase.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
