YouTube - The Sirago 17 "Time Becomes Sarcastic"

Just uploaded Chris Hiatt's video of The Sirago 17's Time Becomes Sarcastic from CDR1
(available for download here:

Rotting America: The Magazine!

Rotting America: The Magazine!:
"True story: Playboy magazine was founded by one man with a budget of $4,000. In over half of a century, it has become a multi-million dollar industry fulfilling all of Hugh M. Hefner's boyhood dreams.
Another True Story: Two knuckleheads from Fresno have access to a free photocopier and Rotting America magazine is born. After three issues it ceases to exist. Crushing the boyhood dreams of two guys named Chris.
But we did get a write-up in Tower Record's Pulse Magazine!"

Finally, to the delight of probably no one, (most of) issue one of the landmark (in our minds) magazine ROTTING AMERICA! is back up on the web. Party like it's 1990 all over again!!

Dig it.
