Exclusive Band Interview: The Extreme Unicorns!

Greetings.  Today’s post is epic…. colossal……  mammoth…….CYCLOPEAN!

Today, we talk Extreme Unicorns.  I speak not of an X-Games version of the mythical creature; rather, I speak of the band:

Extreme Unicorns Music

Hailing from Kalamazoo, Michigan, Extreme Unicorns are an independent punk rock band.  If you are not familiar with Kalamazoo, Michigan, they are apparently having a Spring Flushing soon:

AND….no, they did not pay me to plug this stuff.  Despite the many listening channels available, good music is hard to find these days.  One of the goals for this website is to expose people to quality music they may not know is out there.

The EXCLUSIVE Interview:

After putting our heads together, we compiled a list of 15 informative questions.  Lex, Extreme Unicorns’ beautiful and talented front-woman, was kind enough to sit down with us and chat about the band, life and The Walking Dead.  We are eternally grateful to her for fitting us into her schedule and cannot wait to hear the upcoming full-length album!

Awesome TV: “The First 48”

Just like every other red blooded American, I watch entirely too much TV.  One of my favorite shows to watch that conveniently gets run in marathon form at least 3 times a week is The First 48.  I’m sure you’ve seen it, unless you’re one of those “Oh, I don’t really watch TV” or “I don’t even own a TV” type of people.  In which case, quit being a dick.  All anyone hears when you say that is “I think I’m better than you”.  Plus it means you can never fully be trusted.

I like The First 48 for several reasons.  The thing that blows my mind is the fact that, although the show depicts real cops catching real murderers who have actually killed someone, every episode is about as predictable as an episode of Law and Order.  However, this means I get to look forward to several inevitable scenes during the show:

 

1.  The initial murder intro scene

2.  The “detectives wait for someone to solve the murder for them” scene

3.  The interrogation scene

A Music Listener’s Dilemma: iTunes, Pandora or Spotify?

Welcome to the post-apocalyptic world of music.  People do not buy CD’s anymore. Don’t believe me?  Check out this chart!

CD Sales Chart

A random chart I found on the internet; clearly this is fact

Nowadays, people play their music on i-stuff, recon-droid’s and all kinds of other gadgets.  In addition to these technological toys, there are also a ton of websites/apps that offer promises of music grandiose and allure.

With so much to choose from, what the hell am I supposed to use?  What if I choose the wrong one?  What if one starts off a marvel of listening bliss, only to wither away to the equivalent of Gilbert Gottfried reading a dictionary?

Gilbert Gottfried

NOTE: I hold no grudge against Mr. Gottfried. He is actually quite engaging and funny.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: Morgan Freeman reading a dictionary is an app we all can enjoy.

You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?

I hate getting gas more than nuts in brownies. And I'm a man who enjoys his brownies.

I hate getting gas.  It’s not the fact that soon I’ll having to be signing over my first born child and selling a kidney to afford a full tank, but it is just about everything else involved in the process.  I can’t count the number of times I’ve been on a road trip, had to get gas and pulled off at the nearest exit only to be taken down some po-dunk back road for 15 miles before coming to a gas station that should have the kid from deliverance playing a banjo out front.
