Nivens Log, Vol. CXXII * Joss Stone Temple Pilots *

One day after CHESTER BENNINGTON and STONE TEMPLE PILOTS announced an amicable split betwixt the two JOSS STONE teamed up with STP on JIMMY KIMMEL for his "Mash Up Monday" segment; appropriately called JOSS STONE TEMPLE PILOTS! No word on who the new frontman or woman will be. As more details emerge I'll fill you in.

Nivens Log, Vol. CXXI * Dave Chappelle's Sesame Street * State of the Fart *

You'll never look at Sesame Street the same again! DAVE CHAPPELLE knocks it out of the park!

Have to give credit where credit is due, Metal Sucks posted up about these guys today and digging around their catalog has been nothing short of amazing... though Moose disagrees with me! STATE OF THE FART is brilliant! 

And here's the dude, GUY FIRST, making BEHEMOTH lose it!

Nivens Log, Vol. CXIX * Jim Breuer * Weekly Rock Wind Up * New Music Friday

I can't say for certain I'd have as much class as comedian JIM BREUER. He's an ardent METS fan and has been super classy in his post season videos he's been posting. Here's the most recent from Game 2!

Met game recap!

Nivens Log, Vol. CXVIII * Mourning Son * Jim Breuer *

DAVE NAVARRO is opening up about the murder of his mother back in the 80's in a new documentary "Mourning Son". The trailer is pretty intense!


Comedian JIM BREUER was a class act after watching his beloved METS lose to the ROYALS last night. Here's what he had to say...

Met fan recap!

And given Breuer's classiness I figured he'd be a sure bet for today's 4:20 Smoke Break!

Nivens Log, CXVI * Brooks Wheelan * Sully in Black Files *

Here's the full NSFW video of BROOKS WHEELAN from today's 4:20 Smoke Break! 

I mentioned how GODSMACK'S SULLY ERNA is set to start in a new flick called, "Black Files". From their Facebook page it states, "The family of the US Ambassador in an East-European country is slaughtered. The world’s media attention is now pointed at Sofia, Bulgaria. Top CIA agent is assigned to find out who is responsible for the assault. He recruits a local rookie cop and they dig deeper into world of corruption, terrorism and international crime. The deeper they go, the more they realize that the truth is hidden behind “non-existing” powerful organization, named Black Files." Looks like the crowdfunding begins November 1st via Indiegogo! 
Here's the trailer they've put together thus far. 


The following can only be best described as the Caller of the Day! Next time I'll keep the audio. G'night er'rybody!

Me: "The Rock!" 
Caller: "The Rock?"
Me? "Yes." 
Caller: "What caller am I?" 
Me: (Perplexed) "For what?"
Caller: "Stevie Wonder tickets!"
Me: "You know you called The Rock, right?"
Caller: "Yeah!"
Me: "And you think that WE would be giving away tickets for Stevie Wonder?"
Caller: "Well I was listening to the Rock and they said to call in!"
Me: "For Stevie Wonder?!? You really think we'd give away tickets to Stevie Wonder?"
Caller: "WELL, that's who I was supposed to call in to!"
Me: "For Stevie Wonder?! I mean... 
Caller: "So yeah, what caller am I?
Me: "You have a hard time admitting when you're wrong, don't you?"
Caller: "Well you never know! Right!?!"
Me: "Sigh"

Nivens Log, Vol. CXV * Iliza * HBD Snoop * Puscifer Monday Shot Vid *

Ms. ILIZA SCHLESINGER (which when said angrily & fast sounds like something you'd find on some old Nazi propaganda audio) was today's 4:20 Smoke Break. She's got a new performance coming to NETFLIX in January! @iliza on the Twitter! 
Here's her full NSFW bit from today.


Happy Birthday SNOOP DOGG (though I thought it was SNOOP LION) with this little gem from THE GOURDS


New - wildly entertaining - video from PUSCIFER "Money Shot" came out a few days ago. This precedes the release of their new album that bears the same name. Catch Puscifer when they come to KC next month! Try & Win Tix Here!
