The great Texas psychedelic musician, genius behind the 13th Floor Elevators, acid case, and overall amazing and disturbed person Roky Erickson, RIP The Elevators also had one of the only Dylan covers that is better than the original, and I really like the original. Share

Tony Horwitz has died suddenly, only 60 years old. I can’t say what an important book Confederates in the Attic was when it came out in 1998. It’s really a pioneering book in the popular u

Otherwise, he was terrible, moving from a right-wing […]

As you may have seen, Milos Forman has died. Ultimately, his career is defined by a couple of great movies, followed by a series of solid but not spectacular Hollywood productions. Nothing wrong with
