Guess what? When I'm on the hunt for Seattle's Best Coffee and a Bon Appetit Danish, I'm headed to Chevron Extra Mile. Breakfast of champions I tell you. I'm sure there's an Extra Mile near you. Check it out; they have a deal on Seattle's Best and Bon Appetit Danishs now.
The new Black Sabbath album, 13, is out in June and I was prepared to be slightly enthused about it for a number of reasons, first and foremost: It's Black fucking Sabbath! The band that has done more to influence heavy metal than any band you can name. I was approaching the new album with some skepticism because they're old and rich and maybe don't have the fire any more. It wasn't until I saw this passage from the new Rolling Stone interview that I got REALLY excited:
"Then, when the time finally came to cut the album, Rubin threw in a wrench of his own. Sitting the band down in his Los Angeles home, he played them their first album, 1970's brutally primitive Black Sabbath. "I wanted to make an album that stood alongside their first four albums," Rubin says.
Goddamn right...Rick Rubin to the rescue. He's not going to let them just fart into a mic and put it out because people will buy it, he wants to produce a BLACK SABBATH album.
