Okay, I thought I was going to be a little devious while LC was out of town (she’s in HOT-lanta right now with the fam). There’s this artist that a “friend” introduced me to a few years back, and I was absolutely delighted by her creepy, dead animal-esque creations from the moment I saw them. Check out her galleries here – http://www.elizabethmcgrath.com/. Now, I thought her stuff was made out of real, dead animals, so you can see how I thought LC was going to flip out (being how she’s ex-PETA and all)…turns out that she uses fake leather, fur and all types of creepy accoutrements to sculpt her ghastly dolls and dioramas. Put the vegan propaganda away, LC. She also paints rusty butchers knives and sells them as gifts in her gift shop. How freakin cool is that??

1. The freshest piece of gear I’m going to rock at SxSW this year will be my top secret/undecided outfit that I would never write about in a interview to give the comp a heads up!
2. To kill the slow, dry hours in the van on the way to TX, we’re going to bring 3 nyphomaniac groupies who lack gag reflexes. ________________.
3. I will stand in line for hours to see nothin this year, or any year after that. (I hate line*)
4. Texas BBQ and Lonestar Beer makes me have the bg's (bubble guts) Especially if it’s free!
5. The more free beer I drink, the more likely I am to sleep with a journalist.
6. With all the free stuff from corporate sponsors this year, I really hope to get my hands on a Zune or a free Iphone (shameless plug).
7. If I see someone wearing my answer to question #1 in Austin, I’m going to walk up to them and hit them in the mouth.
8. If I see someone wearing a Luckyiam t-shirt in Austin, I’m going to walk up to them and hug them.
9. Don’t tell nobody, but I heard a rumor that Feist will be playing a secret show at Stubb’s. Shhhhhh!

-Lower Life Form
Catch them March 15th
Check out one of their joints here
Type: Cause every god damned weekend, she catches me cheatin!
L and F: You and Grieves might be exactly what hip hop needs, changing the face and the content of the game. What is your ultimate goal?
Type: Fun-having. That is the ultimate goal in life really... enjoy yourself. Don't let other people tell you what to do or how to do it. Most of our stupidest songs come about for pure entertainment and turn out better than the ones we work hard on.
L and F: What is a Typecast show like?
Type: Offensive. I get drunk and say ridiculous things to see how it goes over in a crowd. It is all light-hearted though, NO bullshit, homophobic, racist or sexist banter. A lot of dick and fart jokes. Masturbation stuff. Self-loathing. FUN... I party. It's more like a party with a host.
L and F: Do bald men really make better lovers?
Type: I don't know because I have never slept with a bald man before.
L and F: Some emcees start their careers being funny and joking around and then they get all serious on us (we're not gonna say Eminem). You aren't gonna go there are you?
Type: I am actually working on a serious project called Whiskey Soaked Dreams, dealing with the personal issues of life, failing aspirations and relationships gone bad. BUT I am also working on a project called AMATURE HOUR, which is 30 to 40 times dumber than any rap album ever made. JUNK PUNTER, my song about kicking people in the nuts, will actually be going on that... and it is the tamest song on there...
L and F: When you get super big, will you become a media whore, driving around drunk and showing your privates like some celebrities we know?

And watch the video because its only 37 secs..
However, 65% of country music goes overboard with life lessons you could find on a crocheted wall hanging for sale in Ingle's Nook. The most recent trend is to urge listeners to live like its their last day and to be thankful for all they have because there are people who have it worse. While, I'm extra annoyed at this segment of country songs, I reluctantly find myself comforted by how easy and attainable Country artists make it sound to live in appreciative, selfless bliss.
About 30% of country songs are about love, of course, and the raciest thing I heard was "I want to show my love for you without making a sound. I think you know what I mean"....Aww isn't that cute?! I feel like I'm chaperoning my little sister's first real date when I'm listening to country. My dad did a stint playing bass in country bars and I'd watch those drunk old people dance around and they were really feeling these love songs...looking longingly into each other's bloodshot eyes and taking turns lipsynching verses to each other. "How could Toby Keith have known exactly what was in our hearts?" they would be thinking the whole time. It makes my icy heart melt a little to be honest.
The last 5% of country songs is totally miscellaneous but currently 3% of these are about bars and drinking (i.e. "I Love This Bar", "It's 5:00 Somewhere").
The other 2% are meant to be extra hilarious and the rednecks I know do get a good laugh. Examples of these would be "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk", "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off" and "Cooler Online" which I have posted below for your immediate enjoyment.
I made my own short Country Music Awards based on the day I listened to Country
Most annoyingly patriotic
Have You Forgotten?
-Have you forgotten about 9/11, Bin Laden, blah blah blah...?
Most successful Country Song to Date
-I heard this song more than any other current song and the shit came out in 1993. Not to mention how much play it gets on July 4th and in Karaoke bars.
-They only give us a 30 minute snippet but when you get a chance, hear the whole thing on CMT because this is so fucking hip!
Least Annoying Current Country Radio Song
Would You Go With Me?
-only 'cause homeboy has a real deep voice in the beginning it's nice and up beat
Most Cliche Current Country Song but Also Not That Annoying (Except the P-P-P-P-Plower part)
