I swear to fuck…anyone can get a book deal. Me, a natural born writer? Nope. I seem to be the only dude who can’t bag a book deal, and I’m fucking tired of it. Even one of the chicks from Butcher Babies, Carla Harvey, has a novel coming out. And on my birthday, no less. […]

A new Melvins album called Hold It In is being eyed for release this October. But don’t expect the band’s usual lineup. Both Jeff Pinkus and […]
