REVIEW: Que Lastima – Tempered Tantrums

My grandparents used to play southern gothic Christian folk music. True story. I never thought that would tickle my fancy nearly as much as it ended up doing and being an amazing spectacle to boot. They were untrained musicians with little rhythm and were tone deaf singers, but nothing could stop them from preaching the gospel […]

Abel’s 4000 Albums That Matter: Part Forty-Six

Today is Thursday – meaning I’ve been moved from my usual Sunday timeslot by the TuffGnarl.com overlords. I feel like a sitcom that’s either incredibly crappy or ahead of its time. I know for a fact which of those I’ve become but no pink slip has been slipped beneath the doors of digital perception. We’ll […]

Abel’s 4000 Albums That Matter: Part Forty

I’m really enjoying my Sunday mornings. As in, I slept in and according to a forensic analysis of my wallet, I apparently consumed 13 dollars’ worth of Burger King between 12:08 and 12:20 a.m. It’s beginning to look like the consumption of a St. Pauli Girl two-four throughout the day was potentially a bad idea. […]

Abel’s 4000 Albums That Matter: Part Thirty-Eight

Abel’s 4000 Albums That Matter: Part Thirty-Five

The World Cup is still raging and good grief, this is beginning to look like a poorly scripted sitcom. I don’t mind overtime but I get a little antsy in the pantsies when that shit starts happening in every game. I smell rats. Like last week, I’m dialing this one in ahead of time. I’m […]

Abel’s 4000 Albums That Matter: Part Thirty-Four

I’ve been saying for a pair of years at least, that Liverpool forward and Uruguayan national Luis Suárez is a giant pile of festering shit but nobody either paid any attention to my words, ignored me or just plum dismissed me as crazy. Bitey-boy’s latest wasn’t his first stab at cannibalism, it’s like his third […]

Abel’s 4000 Albums That Matter: Part Thirty-One

Yeah, I don’t even know who I’m trying to fool here. I know last week I was all “things are gonna get better” or some such nonsense and that’s just not the case. It’s complete bullshit actually. I mean, on top of my routine violent excursions of lexical depravity into the English Language and Her […]
