Black Flag in a regular T-shirt. (Our review.)
Last week, we spoke to FLAG's Keith Morris about Greg Ginn's Black Flag lawsuit. Black Flag released another new song Tuesday, "Wallow in Despair," which sounds a bit better than the band's other new material. Ultimately, we're just thankful that it doesn't feature five minutes of Ginn playing the theremin.

The FLAG/Black Flag war can be a bit overwhelming, so take some time to unwind with our featured Tumblr of the week: Black Flag Shirts on Every Celebrity.

Tumblr of the Week: YVYNYL

Not that we're opposed to reading, but once in a while we want a straightforward summary of why an album is worth a listen. We're also interested in playlists with obscure artists we've never heard of. Plus, we appreciate some cool vinyl cover art when we see it.

We do our one-stop shopping for all of those things at YVYNYL.

Obsessed with "Call Me Maybe?" You're Not Alone

As much as everyone might be sick of Carly Rae Jepsen's smash hit "Call Me Maybe," none of us can get the song out of our heads, much to our chagrin. Let's admit it: We're all secretly jamming out when we're all alone in our car or bedroom. We're not proud of that, but it just keeps happening and we can't stop it.

Call Me Maybe Obsessed is full of memes that each utilize a pop culture reference to make a play on the lyrics of the chorus.

Dwarves, Fuck You Up and Get You High (1991)
Plenty of people visit the merch stand at concerts. Some people buy an item with the intent to wear it again and again, and it unexpectedly becomes destined to live on the top shelf of a closet where it won't be seen again for years. Others sport their band merch until it's been sufficiently worn out, with holes and pit stains and all.

Whether a band tee ever gets worn or not doesn't matter much when it has some sort of sentimental value. My Band T-Shirt tells the stories behind such tees.

Tumblr of the Week: I Am Beyonce

Have you ever wanted an insider's look into the life of Beyoncé?

Luckily our girl B is really into showing us nearly every detail of her oh-so-glamorous lifestyle. Believe it or not, it's even more awesome than you probably imagined, and Beyoncé's Tumblr, I Am Beyonce, has a ton of pictures to prove it. (We've also learned that even if you're Beyoncé, being her sister is still pretty cool.)

It's been tough for us to stop spinning Toothy Wavy, the collaboration among Tucson-based Isaiah Toothtaker, Max B, and The Hood Internet, so it only makes sense that we'd wind up spending a some time with The Hood Internet's official Tumblr.

Aaron Brink and Steve Reidell have been combining indie rock and hip-hop songs to make some killer creations for about five years now, and they're definitely worth spinning.

Tumblr of the Week: Bon Iver Erotic Stories

It felt like kind of a big deal when indie soft-rocker Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) won a Grammy Award. But that's nothing compared to his status as the world's unlikeliest sex symbol.

I mean, have you ever fantasized about Justin Vernon?

Perhaps you've envisioned yourself in a romantic scenario with him, or maybe even a steamy setting. The good news is that you're not alone. In fact, there's a whole blog for these specific dreams.

This week we're bringing you Bon Iver Erotic Stories.

Most of them aren't very erotic, but they're amusing and are good for a few laughs nonetheless.

We figured we'd keep our nostalgic '90s kick going by bringing you some more of the best music you thought you had forgotten but will always remember. Let's take a trip down memory lane, courtesy of >I Love the '90s.

As much as it pains us to say this, there was more to the '90s than just Sugar Ray and Everclear. There was Ace of Base, Lou Bega, Fastball, Smash Mouth, and the Spin Doctors. And let's not forget about Hit Clips.

We're a music blog, but that doesn't mean we aren't passionate about our food, too. When we're not blogging about music festivals and reviewing shows, we're reading about farmers' markets and edible grasshoppers at our sister blog, Chow Bella. Sometimes the two subjects meet: Just listen to Wendy Rene's "BBQ," or Booker T's "Green Onions."

Superstar rapper/fashionisto/alleged Kim Kardashian-doer Kanye West gets it --just remember that infamous fish fillet. But our Tumblr of the Week, Kanye Chef (No One Man Should Have All That Flour), takes things even further, twisting 'Ye's hilarious lyrics and song titles into hilarious foodie gold.

Move over, Cooking With Skrillex; there is a new chef in town.

The Judds' Why Not Me as interpreted by P. Lynn
We feature a lot of brilliant music-related Tumblrs full of funny Photoshopped pictures. What's better than that, you ask?

Sleevefaced, that's what.

Sleevefaced is a collection of photos of people incorporating vinyl album artwork into their posed pictures. These pictures involve anything from the photo subject playing an instrument to more creative situations like using a facial expression in a humorous context.
