Review for 857's Stand Out
The latest offering of young hip hop groove kings 857, Standout, fulfills its prophecy. It runs the gamut of social landscapes right from the terror-soaked intro of a guy being brutally terrorized á la Vanilla Ice and Suge Knight of legend all the way to the CD’s end, Chillin’ Remix -- a fun little ditty, that one!

INDIE MUSIC: The Bradbury Press/The Front
Finding your way can be a lonely and sad pursuit. We've all been there--some may never leave the relative safety of being lost.

Super Size Me! is Super Awesome
Morgan Spurlock is a brilliantly average guy whose message is conveyed
all the more powerfully by his very averageness. This is a guy I'd date

experiment of discovering how a month-lo... continue reading
