The Cranberries on Dolores O’Riordan and “No Need to Argue”

Nov 13, 2020 Web Exclusive

If you’re of the right age, chances are you have a favorite song from the ’90s Irish rock ‘n’ roll band The Cranberries. For many, it’s “Zombie,” the aggressive, buzzy track that talks about bombs, guns, and war inside your head. For others, it’s the jangly “Dreams” or sticky “Linger” that have become personal favorites. More

Kim Dawson and Bobby Herbeck on the Original “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” Movie 30 Years Later

Nov 05, 2020 Web Exclusive

For anyone who grew up in the ’80s or ’90s, you likely crossed paths with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. If, like me, you were rather obsessed with them, then you likely had dozens of figures and maybe even rode around on the large TMNT blimp like a horse (I regret nothing!). But one of the biggest highlights of Turtle fandom back then was the live action movie released in 1990, which was co-written by Bobby Herbeck and co-produced by Kim Dawson. More

Oct 13, 2020 Web Exclusive

My Favorite Album: Alex Lahey on The Killers’ “Hot Fuss”

Oct 06, 2020 Issue #66 - My Favorite Album - Angel Olsen and Sleater-Kinney

I think I was about 12 or 13 when it came out, but I think I really got into it when I was about 14. I was sort of resistant to it for a little while, I think because it was a really successful record and I was sort of getting into my stage, you know how we all go through that stage—some people never get out of it—where they try to resist what’s popular.  More
