WARDEN TRACKS... A brand new song today from a band called The Pretty Reckless.  This tune has been heard over the past month or so on the Bearwaves and it's getting a pretty big response at rock radio stations throughout North America.  Their second full-length album, "Going To Hell," is available soon, and the buzz-generating track from this New York band is called "HEAVEN KNOWS."  Click the bottom of the album graphic to the right to listen!

COLORADO WEED DEATHS A HOAX... Yesterday was the first day of legal recreational POT sales in Colorado, and satirical website, "The Daily Currant," ran a story claiming 37 people had died on the first day!  They also quoted "doctors" as saying Colorado must reverse its MARIJUANA legislation, etc.  Very funny shit, read a legit story about the HERB hoax here.
