Across Alpine Europe on Friday, the horned ‘anti-Santa’ will accompany St. Nicholas to scare bad children. But some warn a folk tradition is being exploited just like Christmas.
This is my favorite headline I’ve ever read. Forget the article (and the Christian Science Monitor in general). Just read the headline a million times.
Weigh in below on if you think Krampus is a sell out poser.
I’m straight up shitting my pants when Her comes out.
Bad Milo: this isn’t the best movie of the year, but it’s my favorite. It makes me feel good. It’s not a feel good movie necessarily, but I just saw it on the big screen and I couldn’t help but feel elated the entire time. If I had all the power in the world, I would use it to make this the next cult classic.
How had I never heard of this movie? It’s been out for two days.

On September 17th, we’ll be releasing Dead Language, the fourth studio album from our favorite Torontonians, THE FLATLINERS. Dead Language is the follow-up to the band’s acclaimed 2010 album Cavalcade. Recorded by long-time producer Steve Rizun, Dead Language is the band’s most personal and invigorating record to date. The album features 13 new tracks filled with intelligent songwriting, arena-sized choruses, big guitars and a distinct musical fluidity that comes from playing together as a band for over 10 years. Vocalist Chris Cresswell had this to say, “Dead Language is the culmination of 10 years of hard work - our first album in 3 years and our 4th overall. We were finally able to capture our sound and energy as a touring band on record, having recorded the majority of these songs live off the floor. This was easily the most fun we’ve ever had recording and I think that comes through in these songs.” Known for putting on a killer live show, THE FLATLINERS will bring their “perfect concoction of break-neck guitar rhythms, complementary solos, sing-along lyrics and danceable interludes” to a slew of cities over the next few months.
Uh, stoked, obviously
My bro Krampus is killin’ it tonight, eatin’ all the bad kids. Tonight is his night. It’s Krampusnacht!

Soft Skills! This album is crucial. If you ever even liked us, you’re going to wonder why Kyle and Phil are still in this garbage band. This record is going to be a big thing. Or maybe they are just that special to me and I’m blinded by it. Regardless, you decide.
The band also includes Pat Dougherty (In Jon and Phil’s old and incredible band, and my personal bass hero, The Jezebel Spirit) and Keith McGraw, the man behind the engineering of Don’t Take Our Filth away.
Get into it.
