At last, our long national nightmare is over. The glorified windbag known as Colin Cowherd is finally off the American airwaves.  This past Friday, ESPN announced Cowherd’s days at the World Wide Bottom Feeder were over after he finally crossed the “bigot” line with his exceptionally obtuse comments about Dominicans he made on Thursday.

This story evolved over two days, which explains why at first, the boys in Bristol started by slow-playing this on Friday.

New Orleans resident and musician Sean Yseult is probably best known for her tenure in the industrial metal outfit White Zombie, but there’s a lot more to the artist than the band which made her famous. In December of 2010 Yseult released “I’m in the Band: Backstage Notes from the Chick in White Zombie”, a collection of tour diaries and personal photos chronicling the life and times of the group that skyrocketed to the top of the metal world in the mid-nineties. Since then she’s kept busy by doing a ton of photography work, as well as a brief stint as bassist of The Cramps, and currently plays with two bands: Rock City Morgue and Star & Dagger.
