[Podcast] Guilletine presents Star Squared Podcast

Blackstar vs. Binary Star. Why the hell did it take me this long to come up with this theme?.. Actually, who the hell listens to Binary Star anymore, anyway? LOUIZ LISTENS TO MOTHERFUCKING BINARY STAR… That’s who. So, yeah, Guilletine was ever so nice to make this incredible mix for Antisteez in the little bit of time we had before today. I haven’t stopped bobbing my head since Guilletine played that first track on Torq. This will definitely come up as one of my top 5 once asked.... Read More →

Nobodys Hero Dropping New Album For The New Year

Let’s get shit straight here; Miami is known for a ton of things that usually revolve around pretty things, money, beautiful beaches, a trifecta of evil genius basketball players and the Sarussi sandwich (okay, maybe that last part about Sarussi isn’t completely true, but fuck, at least Man vs. Food thinks so!). One thing is certain; we are not famous for our punk rock. Unfortunately, the thump thump thump of our bass and shaking asses of our lovely ladies tend to leave everything else... Read More →

[Art Basel] Invader Joins the Wynwood Walls

Everyone should be familiar with the Wynwood Walls and if you have to ask then I hope that you will take heed this Art Basel and learn yourself something. A project that began in 2009 as an open-air art park has involved into a who’s who gallery of artists and wow-factors. Having been provided a primed wall as a canvas the artists brought their own flavor to their creations and left us with a taste of their workmanship in the original 12 murals. For Art Basel 2010 the pioneering... Read More →

(Jason Parkhurst/USPresswire) By now, everyone has heard of the firing of Randy Shannon. Possible replacements have been rumored to range from former NFL coach Jon Gruden, to Temple head coach Al Golden. At this point, it’s all pure speculation. Nothing can really be known until after the bowl game. The staff that he left behind will coach them in the Emerald Nuts Bowl, or whatever useless corporate bowl game their playing in, with Jeff Stoutland head coaching for that night. Not much... Read More →

FIU Rattles The City

The dominant shadow previously cast by University of Miami football over the city is receding a bit. Amid the darkness, Florida International University sprouted and is trying to grab some of the Miami sunlight. In its biggest growth spurt yet, FIU defeated Arkansas State saturday afternoon 31-24 in front of an enthusiastic crowd at FIU Stadium to clinch the Sun-Belt Conference championship and a bowl game…both firsts for the school. Meanwhile, about nine miles away, UM was staying in the... Read More →

(Ezra Shaw, Getty Images / November 28, 2010) For the first time all year, the Miami Dolphins played a well balanced game en route to a 33-17 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. Miami needed this win like we all need oxygen. The future direction of the team was very much at stake in this one. Quarterback Chad Henne, and head coach Tony Sparano could have faced a public outcry for their jobs had they not been victorious. Henne, who was benched weeks ago in favor of Chad Pennington, responded... Read More →
