DJ AM’s Death Disturbing on Many Levels


UPDATE: Saw Blink perform in Hartford tonight. Amazing. So emotional. Raw, real. I’ve never felt closer to the band than I did tonight, and I’ve never had more respect for them.

What the f*ck?

NEW YORK (AP) — A law enforcement official says the celebrity disc jockey known as DJ AM has been found dead in his New York City apartment, which had drug paraphernalia in it.

The official tells The Associated Press that 36-year-old Adam Goldstein was found in his Manhattan apartment Friday evening. The official says there was no evidence of foul play.

The death comes a year after Goldstein survived a South Carolina plane crash that killed four other people.

This is upsetting to me on many levels. First, how awful that one would survive a plane crash only to die a year later. Second, how is Travis (Barker) handling the news? And while I know this is terrible, I can’t help but get an eerie “Final Destination” vibe from all of this. Third, and most concerning to me, is the fact that I’m going to see Blink 182 tomorrow in Hartford and if the show gets canceled so help me God don’t even come near me for a week because I will be breathing fire.

Live with your mistakes… or lie [by Will]


These days, more than ever before, I’m hearing people say they want to get tattoos. That’s cool I guess. I’m about as accepting as the next acceptor, but I often wonder how so many people can spontaneously give up a plot of their body they probably can’t get back.

I have a hard enough time choosing between three tempting items on an IHOP breakfast menu, let alone marrying one of the endless possibilities of potential tattoos. And unlike my blueberry pancakes, this decision is relatively permanent.

If I were in Belgium last weekend, this is a pep talk I would have had with 18-year-old Kimberly Vlaeminck

Blink 182 appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Tuesday and Wednesday to perform songs off their greatest hits album and promote their upcoming summer tour.

On Tuesday the band performed “The Rock Show” with Mark Hoppus on lead vocals. Donning tight black pants and his subtle-yet-spikey hairdo, Hoppus left the viewers (me) wondering if he ever ages (aka is still so hot).

Travis Barker was also in full effect, and I’m sure I’m not alone when I say it felt damn good to see him drumming again.
