House of Hardcore 25: Broken Matt Hardy and Brother Nero vs. Philly | results and full review

Memories flood back in my mind when I think about Extreme Championship Wresting, more commonly known as ECW (that’s “double-u” spelled out, not “dub”). A good chunk of my high school and college years were spent watching ECW on local MSG affiliates at ungoldy hours of the day, or traveling to high school gymnasiums and dilapidated convention halls to watch pro-wrestlers destroy their bodies for the pleasure of us bloodthirsty fans. ECW was wrestling for punks during the heart of the punk rock resurrection and the tristate was ground zero. This was OUR wrestling federation and you couldn’t confuse...

Comic book grading 101 for lapsed Marvel collectors (updated 2/28/17)

TL;DR: This is a primer for anyone that collected comics in the late ’80s/early ’90s and amassed a large amount of comics that they don’t know what to do with. I explain why I started collecting and stopped collecting comics, why I finally pulled my collection out of my parents attic and the process I went through to get key issues graded by CGC. This article will be updated as I go through the comic book grading process.  George and comic books: an abridged history I’ve been collecting comic books, in one form or another, ever since I was 10 years old....

The King of New York: an interview with Turbo A.C.’s frontman Kevin Cole

The Turbo A.C.s, like Electric Frankenstein and Degeneration, are one of those bands that just personifies New York City. Their sound defined the NYC scene in the late ’90s and frontman Kevin Cole is considered the modern day king of the New York punk. Go to a show anywhere in Manhattan and you’re bound to see him. He has his fingers on the pulse of rock and roll and his cool, calm demeanor just screams punk rock.   This interview originally appeared in Life in a Bungalo on March 16, 2006 If kicking ass had a soundtrack it would feature more than a...
