Could this be the best interview we’ve ever gotten out of Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis? Probably! J sits down with WTF podcast host and longtime Dino fan, Marc Maron, for some chit chat and then ends the whole shebang with a few songs. In addition to telling Marc about growing up in Amherst, J reveals he’s a pretty good skier and goes skiing at least once a year. He also had a pretty positive experience with Aimee Mann at Newbury Comics. Anways, listen for yourself at the link below.
What could be better than hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind Dinosaur Jr. dolls? NOTHING, that’s what. Mediodescocido’s Uriel Valentin has constructed three art dolls to resemble J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph. We have to say, they’re pretty spot on. J Mascis even has a tiny purple skateboard. See for yourself above and then head to Mediodescodico’s website to check out all of their awesome creations. FYI, the dolls are not for sale – just for your awe and enjoyment.
Here’s to stating the obvious >>> Dinosaur Jr. are on the most recent cover of Ghettoblaster. J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph are Keeping It Together for issue #33. Make sure to pick up your copy and frame it.
After playing at Minneapolis’s Cabooze last night, Dinosaur Jr. got over to 89.3 The Current for a live in-studio performance bright and early this morning.
