AZ: Rage Against the Machine Leads Musician Boycott

Rage Against the Machine is spearheading an boycott against Arizona’s new (anti) immigration bill. The band’s lead singer, Zach de la Rocha is the spokesperson for Sound Strike, which is targeting the legislation and calling for artists to stay out the state until the measure is repealed.

Other artists on board with the boycott include Cypress Hill,Kanye West, Joe Satriani, Michael Moore, Serj Tankian, Shakira, Sonic Youth, Spank Rock, and Mexican band Los Tigres del Norte.

In an open letter de la Rocha wrote:

Fans of our music, our stories, our films and our words can be pulled over and harassed every day because they are brown or black, or for the way they speak, or for the music they listen to. This law opens the door for them to be shaked down [sic], or even worse, detained and deported while just trying to travel home from school, from home to work, or when they just roll out with their friends.

Wow! Butt Crack Stickers

Okay, I thought the “Fear the Rear Gear” pet anus covers were kinda goofy and well, wrong. But Jesus weeps over “Backtacular Gluteal Cleft Shield” designed to peel and stick over the butt crack left exposed by fashionable low rise jeans. Or by your plumber doing his job.

In French the ad copy promises that the Backtacular Gluteal Cleft Shield will prevent embarrassing moments and an end to the prying eyes of sweaty co-workers looking at your butt crack when you lean over or pick up your purse from next to you desk. Ooo la la!

They come in a variety of designs, cost 11 euros and can be worn with a thong. But really, wouldn’t the solution to gluteal cleft exposure be to wear a longer shirt over low rise jeans?
