Chad Ochocinco–crazy cocky, yet kinda lovable–properly hyped up an imminent Bengals victory in last night’s SNF matchup versus the Jets during a pre-game interview with Bob Costas. He also added a wager:
“If Revis shuts me down I will change my name back to Johnson,” Ochocinco told NBC’s Bob Costas on the network’s pre-game show. “That’s how confident I am. It’s not going to happen.”

I’m a huge fan of veteran rockers doing their thing foreva and eva and eva, so when seminal post-punk (or as I like to call them, thinking man’s punk) band Mission of Burma resurfaced in 2002, I gave a tiny cheer.
MOB just announced their forthcoming release: The Sound, The Speed, The Light, with all of complicated posturings of… a veteran thinking man’s band. According to Consequence of Sound, the album “is divided into four ‘sets,’ or suites of three songs, each of which explore moods or colors. Lyrical topics covered include ‘alcoholism to fleshly concerns.’”
Pretentious, sure. But it still sounds fucking great, and infinitely better than the caca kids are calling punk these days anyway.
Now can somebody please tell me that the Jawbreaker’s reunion rumors are true, so I can die happy?
