Pour One Out For Bam Bam Bigelow


bambambigelow.jpgSad news today from the world of beloved professional wrestlers from the 80’s. Scott “Bam Bam” Bigelow – charter member of Ted DiBiase’s Million Dollar Corporation and pioneer of the “Wham Bam, Thank You Ma’am” wrestling technique – has passed away.

Apparently, we were wrong. The genius of it can be summed up with this quote: “Do I Look Like a Bad Dream?” Anyway, a little mid-day retro flashback.

LISTEN UP: Chris Martin Loves Black People



  • For those of you who are huge fans of induced panic attacks, head over to the Chemical Brothers Myspace page for a brand new track. Come on! Go! Do it! Hurry!
  • The best surprise of the day was learning that that fake Britney Spears track “Fed Up” was actually sung by the very talented (and funny) Amy Miles. Idolator‘s got a taste of what her actual music sounds like.
  • Favorite collabo of the day? Ghostface Killah and Amy Winehouse. Thank Resonator Magazine while you’re at it.
  • Our least favorite collabo? Chris Martin and Kanye West. But don’t blame the messenger, in this case it’s The Music Slut. And also, we didn’t even listen to it, so who knows.
  • Did someone say gothic country-rock? Jesse Sykes did! Hear it over at Stereogum.
