Today Is The First Day Of The End Of Your Life:
...so why not fill what's left of your earthly existence with constant reminders that the Grim Reaper's scythe will one day darken your doorstep? (But in a fun way.) And for gifts, there's nothing better than a few morbid tchotckes to say, "laugh while you can, monkey boy."
Coachella Goes Off Without A Hitch:
Probably aided by the complete lack of Limp Bizkit fanboys, thus no rioting and burning stuff. Here at Altrok, we're envious. Billboard provides the rundown.
I Thought That Sort Of Thing Was Reserved For Marlon Brando:
Sure, it seems like an innocuous gambling excursion, but a personal island? I bet 311's Nick Hexum dreams of re-enacting "The Most Dangerous Game"...and, to mix references, wouldn't it be neat if he had a dimunitive French butler?
