Is it racist that a white, 20 year old unarmed kid was shot by a black cop on Monday, Aug 18, 3 days ago and its no where in the news? Oh wait, it happens all the time, its just not newsworthy. Sucks to be white.
Dear Racists: I know you’re going to to be trotting this out in the next few days claiming that this shows how white people are just as badly treated as black people in the US (though, of course, the idea that “it happens all the time” to white people is, of course, a ridiculous and disgusting lie).
But guess what, fuckheads, as usual, you’re wrong as fuck. The reason this tragedy isn’t national news is because, surprise surprise, a similar (ish) shooting of a white teenager by a black cop is being handled by the authorities completely differently! That’s right, you dumbfucks, this officer is being immediately and vigorously investigated, the officer’s name was released, the victim wasn’t denied medical care, nor was his body left on the street for hours. It’s almost like we treat black and white people differently in our justice system! And if you want to argue that the fucking Salt Lake City PD (oh shit, was I able to read about this case in the NATIONAL NEWS?!?!?! ) is racist against white people, you are fucking out of your mind.
So, nice try, you asshole, I know you were salivating over finding a case to compare this to Mike Brown, but, even with this timing, you’re not even fucking close to proving your racist “point.”
by Bill Pearis NYC quartet Una Lux make amber-hued synth rock with a grandiose slo-mo attack and the confident vocals of singer Kelso Norris as the focal point. The band are set to release their debut single, “Simon,” on August…
My super talented and kick ass girlfriend sings for the band UNA LUX and they just released a new single that you can hear over at BrooklynVegan! They have a really great video to go with it that will be released soon. Check it out!

On this week’s episode of THIS PART’S THE BEST, we listen to Siamese Dream by The Smashing Pumpkins with Frank Garcia Hejl and talk about coming of age in the 90s and trying to find records in a small Texas town.
I LOVE the idea of this podcast that breakupyourband created and was super excited to be on it. I talk about the album that shaped my pre-teen/teenage years (and apparently the rest of my life). The Smashing Pumpkins Siamese Dream. This is probably the most cheese ball and genuine you’ll ever hear me, ever. It’s a little dopey and scary. Especially at the end where I get all sappy pants. Awwww. Enjoy!
#UCB performer and impressionist extraordinaire Frank Garica Hejl got a Huff Post article written about his Nick Offerman impression. Check it out, follow him on twitter, and see his super official UCBComedy page so you can see all his creative content and even catch a live show.
Wow. Thank you, UCBComedy! And whoops, better update my video page!
I was digging through my itunes and found this acoustic version of Cheer Up Great Pumpkin! from a 2006 radio show my roommate Frank hosted at KNTU in Denton. I think this version is better than the one on the album.
