You may have already heard how Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe was arrested in Prague for the 2010 death of a concertgoer. The internet (particularly the Metal Memes subreddit) reacted in characteristically swift and tasteless fashion. If it isn't too soon, it's probably not on the internet.

Beloved science fiction writer Ray Bradbury passed away today. Here's a song by someone who beloved Ray Bradbury a little too much. It's also extremely creepy if you don't know that this was made before he died (necrophilia: we don't endorse it here!).

Video also contains extremely strong language. If you're reading this, Grandma, please don't click the sideways triangle at the bottom left corner of the picture. It turns the picture into a movie about naughty things and you'll be so upset you might miss evening mass again.

R.I.P. Levon Helm of The Band

Levon Helm, drummer and backing singer for '70s rock band The Band, passed away earlier today. Originally the backing group for Bob Dylan and other musicians, The Band (as they started calling themselves) began releasing their own material and produced such classics as "The Weight" and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down." Their 1976 farewell concert served as the basis for Martin Scorsese's concert documentary The Last Waltz, and it (as well as the live album of the same name) is a goddamn classic. Look it up now if you haven't already.

(And on the same day Greg Ham of Men at Work died, too. Sad day!)
