That's not an exaggeration. The man sitting next to me is Yoshiki , the songwriter / drummer / pianist for X Japan , which is one of the most successful bands in Japan's history. They're the subject of a documentary playing SXSW called We Are X , which follows their rise, fall,...
I promise you, watching to the end of this video is worth it. My favorite band of all time, Coheed and Cambria - who will be playing the big, free stage at SXSW - have put out a new music video for their song "Island" off their album The Color Before The Sun , and it's wonderful...
Full disclosure, here: I was five years old when the X-Files premiered. So I didn't watch it as it was airing. But even though I came to it late, I'd like to think I'm a pretty big fan. I've seen the show, I watched both movies, and the return of the X-Files has me super excited...
I was not good at Geography in high school, and nothing has changed. Other than the fact that I'm not fighting my Geography anymore. I mean, I would if I saw her today. I still hate you, Ms. J. You know who you are. We took a 50 States Quiz as part of the morning show today -...
They've done Batman. They've done Adventure Time. And now Mondo Gallery is having their newest show - SNIKT BAMF THWIP: A Celebration Of Marvel Comics . The opening night is Friday (the 11th), where you can check out and buy all the amazing art prints and posters, BUT... Wouldn'...
(I should say, before we go any further, that all the views below are held only by me, and not 101X or anybody else. That being said, obviously I'm right.) I went on a journey recently. Not to one place, but four - all the Olive Gardens in the Austin area. As you may be tired of...
UPDATE: So, no surprise, the elements and worse took their toll on ol' Korra and Harry. You can see the horror show it turned into below, but suffice it to say: Harry got the Dark Mark . Oh, and a listener sent in her attempt at a Korra pumpkin, and it's actually amazing. I didn...
As it's well been chronicled , I'm obsessed with Power Rangers at the moment, having just bought a giant set of the show that came in a Red Ranger helmet . So it was an immense privilege to talk to Jason David Frank , aka Tommy Oliver . I may have vaguely been on the record...
In the latest episode of Alex Talks To People About Stuff, I sat down with an actual X-Man. Someone who's smelled Michael Fassbender's musk! (And yes, he was in the Hannah Montana movie.) Lucas Till , a Texas guy, talked to me about being a big nerd, making one of my favorite...
