For the past three years, writer, standup comic, and former SuicideGirls’ political correspondent Dave Anthony (aka SG member FearTheReaper of Asshole Fuckface Roundup fame) has been educating his friend and fellow comic Gareth Reynolds — and an increasingly large audience — on some amazing historical characters and events your teacher somehow omitted to tell you about in class. Turns out there’s a lot of epically awesome history that didn’t make the official curriculum.

Dave and Gareth’s podcast, The Dollop, was first launched in April, 2014. The premise is simple: Each episode, Dave, a strange history junkie, regales Gareth with a spectacularly stupid yet true story from America’s past, and Gareth reacts with appropriate (and inappropriate!) shock, awe, and witticisms. The Dollop formula was an instant hit, and three years on it’s been perfectly condensed into a book, The United States of Absurdity. Illustrated by James Fosdike, with a forward by Patton Oswalt, the book features 29 stories found down the back of history’s dirty, messy, and rather sticky sofa.

Some of the stuff Dave uncovers is just plain hilarious, while other inglorious passages from our past vividly illustrate how things a lot of the best minds at the time thought were top notch and the bee’s knees, were in fact — with the benefit of hindsight and a little perspective — indisputably batshit crazy. (Performing lobotomies through the eye socket with an ice pick, using electroshock therapy as an anesthetic, and “curing” a president with a fever by relieving him of 7.9 pints of blood, for example.) And there’s the rub. The Dollop isn’t just enlightening in terms of mood and history, it also subtly edifies us on the fact that many of today’s newsworthy episodes, with the benefit of time and distance, will similarly seem obviously and utterly insane — if we survive long enough to see them in the rear view mirror!

SuicideGirls caught up with Dave to find out more about what we’ve been missing in the 8 years since his funny-as-fuck sociopolitical musings graced our site thrice weekly. Read the full interview on SuicideGirls.com/.

The United States of Absurdity will be available where all good books are sold on May 09, 2017. You can find The Dollop on iTunes, Podbean, Podbay, Soundcloud, and Libsyn . If you like what you hear, please support Dave and Gareth’s hilarious history project on Patreon.

222

About 222

The hooks keep coming—and so do the left turns—on the new and second album, I’m Not Trying To Be You…Just Kidding I’m Trying To Be You, by the Los Angeles-based 222. Creatively blending alternative rock, rooted in the ‘80s and ‘90s, with modern dance flares throughout the eleven tracks, the co-ed duo of vocalist Jade Howard and vocalist/guitarist Dennis Hamlin create a sound that’s both irresistible and mysterious.

I’m Not Trying To Be You… is the follow-up to 222’s debut album 2015’s Libretto. That album’s first single “One Night Stand” earned them airplay on Los Angeles tastemaker radio station KROQ, among other radio outlets. Their provocative self-produced videos for “One Night Stand” and “Headcake” are vivid mini movies; they can be seen—along with the “Fair Weather Send Off” lyric video—on 222, their YouTube channel. 222 recorded, and arranged all songs on I’m Not Trying To Be You… — as they did on their debut Libretto — and recorded in their home studio.

“Jade and I have extremely similar taste which makes it a very simple, easy process,” says Dennis. “I write, arrange, and play all the instruments on the album and run it through Jade’s filter. She gives me her opinions/ideas and we change whatever needed resulting in 222. Jade and I have been friends for a long time; we know each other very well and almost always agree on what the music should be. Live, the ferocious Tosha Jones plays the drum parts and came into the band a fan so she too has very similar taste so it just works. Because of that when we all add our own personalities into the live aspect it only gets better.”

The prolific songwriting team of Jade and Dennis draw their musical inspiration from books, movies and life experiences. On the new album, they dive deeper into song concepts while keeping the emotional element sourced from personal places. “Our life experiences definitely play a big part in our songs,” says Dennis, who also produced the album. “Even on the more extreme ideas, there is usually some sort of home ground from which they came.”

“The title track ‘I’m Not Trying To Be You…’ is about Jade and I moving out to LA from our small towns and being around each other so much that we actually start becoming each other, says Dennis. “I feel that describes how this album differs from the first in the way that the writing is sort of a sequel to Libretto; it just flowed naturally from the last one but there is definitely evolution happening.” Jade adds, “We have gotten to the point where we don’t have to talk. We just start doing the same thing or get ready to go somewhere together.”

222 are psyched to bring the new songs on the road and kick them into an even higher gear. The band is committed to deepening their bond with fans and garnering new ones. Asked what they’d like to overhear one fan talking to another right after a 222 show, Dennis says, “Refreshing to see someone doing their own art and not following a trend. And they’re fucking amazing!!”

This Wednesday, March 29 on SuicideGirls Radio, hosts Nicole Powers and Bradley Suicide will be joined by Minnesota hip-hop artist Mod Sun, who’ll be giving us the behind-the-scenes gossip on his new album, Movie.

You can listen – and watch – SuicideGirls Radio live on Wednesday nights from 8 til 9 PM at our state-of-the-art, all digital home on zinna.tv or on our Facebook page via Facebook LIVE!

About Mod Sun

29-year-old Mod Sun is emerging as a pillar in the hip hop scene of Minnesota. With an uncanny ability to tinker with the boundaries of creativity, Sun has emerged as a rising star in the congested world of rap.

Born in Bloomington, Mod Sun developed a strong adoration for everything music related. At a young age, he clung to The Allman Brothers, Bob Dylan, Blink 182, and Charles Hamilton as his sources of inspiration. With two supportive parents sprinkling huge doses of hope and love, Mod grew increasingly obsessed with the idea of one day chasing his dreams.

With an expansive musical palette that consisted of rock and hip hop, Mod Sun became a multi-faceted star in both arenas. At 17, he dipped his hands in the rock world when he joined the local band Four Letter Lie. His journey with the group allowed him to experience tour life for the very first time. Then, at 20, the precocious musician flexed his talent on the drums when he joined his next band Scary Kids Scaring Kids.

Due to his ability to wow the crowd as a drummer, the group allowed him to serve as an opener for their tour. Despite a few rough performances, Sun realized his potential to shine as a solo act. The high of performing in places like Australia and New Zealand was too much for him to overlook. Because of that, he drifted away from the rock world and pursued rap full-time. With no help on the production front, he released his first mixtape, I’ll Buy Myself in 2009.

“The reason I didn’t start putting out Mod Sun music earlier is because I always wanted to step away from the drums. The only reason I didn’t earlier is because I knew no one in Minnesota that made beats. I knew nothing about making beats. So, I had to figure out the program and learn how to make my own beats. The first song I ever recorded rapping is on that album.”

With a voracious appetite for success, Mod churned out five more mixtapes and three EPs before releasing his first album Look Up in 2015 with Rostrum Records. Laced with refreshing, mood quenching songs like “Free Love”, “Goddess”, and “My Hippy”, it was easy to see why Mod won over Benjy Grinberg – the President of Rostrum Records.

The day I signed to Rostrum, I threw a pool party at my house in North Hollywood – the original Hippy Hideout. That’s where we were at when I signed my contract. I had the whole team over. It all started a month prior to that day when I signed the contract at my house, as well. Benjy – the owner of Rostrum – came over to my house in North Hollywood. We sat down and listened to Look Up . Out of all of the songs I played, Benjy stopped me at ‘My Favorite Shirt Is My Skin’ and he made run it back. That’s what did it for me.”

After showcasing his artistry with some of Billboard’s biggest darlings in G. Eazy and Machine Gun Kelly on his debut album, Mod realized for his second go-around that evolution would be essential. With the world becoming a drearier place, his sophomore album Movie will be the project to not only re-instill that much needed happiness to smile again, but to illustrate his growth as an artist.

With Bobby Johnson, Arthur McArthur, and Don Cannon playing instrumental roles in crafting Mod’s new sound for Movie , the Minnesota star will be swimming in new waters creatively for his second album.

“The shit we did together is something totally brand new for me. That’s kind of the basis of the new album. It’s kind of in a way a reinvention of what I’ve been doing with a concept I’ve been working with this whole time,” says Sun.

He adds, “I have a new song on this album called “Beautiful Problems” with Maty Noyes and Gnash. We have a song together that’s seriously going to be on every radio station. It is really going to be. The reason all of that is possible is because I’ve stepped out and took a risk on trying new things.”

Mod Sun will be heading out on a national tour on April 4 to support the album. Dates can be found here: bandsintown.com/modsun

About Bryce Fox

LA-based alternative rock singer Bryce Fox debuted his “funky, smooth” new single “Coldhearted” on March 17, 2017 via Billboard.com. The Frequency and Aalias produced track was the follow up single to Bryce’s first hit, “Horns,” which currently sits at almost 5 million streams on Spotify, and counting. 

“I was feeling an overwhelming sense of under achievement at the time,” Bryce explains in a recent interview with Billboard. “Not everyone is cut out for the music and entertainment industry and battling the lows (and highs) can be consuming and soul sucking. I want to inspire people of the least ‘expecting’ to gain the confidence to be artistic and passionate about their career path. To be proud of where you come from. To be good to humans. And when you have a chance to choose to be the dog or the dog food, you choose neither.”
