Five years ago today I posted something long I wrote about my experiences fifteen years ago today. (I lived one block away from the World Trade Center.)

I’m Not Sleeping

Next week is the 31st anniversary of Live Aid–I’ve got something special planned for that day, but in anticipation of it, I’ve added my minute-by-minute breakdown of U2’s performance of “Bad” to the archives. Relive all 12 glorious minutes!

Woody!

I discovered that my Woody Harrelson interview from 2009 had fallen victim to a website redesign at Maxim: but now it lives on in the archives here. Thrill to the advance word of Zoe Kravitz as a budding sex symbol!

Spaghetti Incident Report

When I interviewed Velvet Revolver a decade ago, I got to clear up some of the Guns N’ Roses mysteries I had long wondered about. For example: was the worst job in rock ‘n’ roll the guy who had to keep on returning Axl Rose’s microphone stand to an upright position when he knocked it […]

Thirteenth Anniversary

I still think about my experiences on 9/11, and am grateful that they recede into history, even if the consequences of that day don’t.

Tomato! (Tohmahto!)

Shaun White is on the halfpipe today in Sochi (no spoilers here!). If you want to flash back to his first Olympic triumph, eight years ago, you can read my Rolling Stone cover story on the Flying Tomato here. “I need a Crunk Juice glass with diamonds on it,” he told me. Something that didn’t […]

Reddited

Last week, I had what I believe was the highest-traffic day ever here on Rule Forty Two, from people checking out this page in the “Secret Rock Knowledge” section, about how Eminem and Dr. Dre originally met. Somebody linked to it on Reddit, and over 40,000 people swung by to take a look. And that […]

Single-Disc White Album Roundup

I traded tweets earlier today with a very cool graphic artist, Craig Robinson, author of the excellent and witty baseball infographic collection Flip Flop Fly Ball. The spur: he recently compiled his own single-disc version of the Beatles’ White Album, which reminded me of the time I did my version. We’re not the only ones, […]

Happy Birthday, Moby

I am grateful for many things in my life, not least that I think about my experiences on 9/11/2001 with less frequency as the years pass.

Oscar Immersion Mode

With the Oscar nominees being announced today, may I offer you the interviews I’ve done with some of them? I spoke with George Clooney (Actor in a Leading Role, The Descendants; Screenplay, The Ides of March) in 2005, around the time of Syriana. Just a few weeks back, I got Kirk Baxter and Angus Wall […]
