You may or may not have heard, but Drew Barrymore, Juliette Lewis, Eve, and Ellen Page are all in the Detroit area shooting a roller-derby inspired movie called Whip It! (they were spotted at a show by some band called Thunderbirds are Now! a few weeks ago, and also seen here making complete fucking fools of themselves at Jacoby’s).

Click here to sign up, click the YouTube clip above to hear the song, and while you’re at it, check out Mr. White’s site for more cult film insanity than you’ll probably know what to do with. — Ryan Allen

Red Shirt Brigade, “Sporto” (Suburban Sprawl Music/Arborvitae Records, 2001)

It was the turn of the century, and everyone was younger than they are now. Indie rock was still indie rock, at least mostly; the Internet bubble had burst, blogs were in their infancy, and no one knew what the fuck a MySpace page was. Friendster hadn’t even been invented yet. This clip dates back to the cherished times we Read more
