Death – 3 black brothers playing punk rock

Before there was even such a thing as punk music, three black brothers with a band by the name of Death were playing hardcore in Detroit. After recording an album, they quickly disbanded when no one would sign them because of their name and that they were black teens playing white-boy rock instead of the Motown music that was in vogue. The story of the “first black punk band” is chronicled in a new documentary called A Band Called Death. Here’s the trailer:

Movember Starts Today

Movember starts today. I decided to become a Mo Bro a little while ago. This morning I’ll be clean shaven. By the end of Movember I’ll look like Tom Selleck. OK, maybe my moustache won’t be that full, but it’ll be there. I’ve setup a little Movember page here, but you can donate here. Thanks!

Star Wars Blu-Ray, CGI Yoda vs Old Puppet Yoda
I think the old puppet Yoda looks so much more realistic
