RIP, CAGE MATCH. 2008(WE THINK) – 2010.

Here, watch this, it’ll add to the effect and such:

FOR THE PAST, OH, COUPLE, TWO, THREE YEARS, WE’VE BEEN BRINGING YOU SOMETIMES GRATUITOUS, BUT MOSTLY RIDICULOUS VIOLENCE, ON A NIGHTLY BASIS. HERE, CHEETOS WERE MORE THAN DELICIOUS CHEESY SNACKS, THEY WERE WEAPONS DAMMIT. HELL, SOME OF THE FINEST WEAPONRY MANKIND HAS EVER KNOWN WAS CREATED HERE—-THOSE POLISH SAUSAGE NUNCHUKS DID SOME REAL DAMAGE, DIDN’T THEY?!? SIGH. THEY DID.

THE CAGE MATCH WAS BORN OUT OF LAZINESS, A WAY TO LET YOU MAKE THE DECISIONS ABOUT NEW MUSIC SO WE DIDN’T HAVE TO. BUT ALAS, THE SHIP HAS SAILED, THINGS HAVE RUN THEIR COURSE, ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO AN END, NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY, THAT WHICH DOESN’T KILL US MAKES US STRONGER, A PENNY SAVED IS A PENNY EARNED, AND A STITCH IN TIME SAVES NINE.

WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO SAY, IS THAT THE CAGE MATCH ERA HAS OFFICIALLY COME TO AN END. ALL THE GREAT BANDS AND SONGS WE’VE INTRODUCED YOU TO ARE NOW IN A BETTER PLACE. THE CAGE MATCH WARRIORS HAVE FOUGHT THEIR LAST FIGHT. THE CHAMPIONS’ COUCH, MADE OUT OF HOSTESS CUPCAKES, WILL NOW OFFICIALLY BE EATEN WITH A LARGE BUCKET OF MILK AND FOLLOWED PROMPTLY WITH A BOTTLE OF CUERVO.

WE WILL FIND NEW HORIZONS, AND NEW WAYS TO EXPOSE YOU TO NEW MUSIC. LOOK FOR DETAILS SOON, BUT UNTIL THEN, WE BID YOU ADIEU, CAGEY MATCHEY. NICE KNOWIN’ YA

Love, Zak the Intern

P.S.

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Zak Rickun. I’m one of the interns at fm102.1. I enjoy my time here by being stuffed in plastic buckets and running around in gorilla suits, among other things.

Remember the bucket i talked about?

Fact: Our Mascot Can Beat Your Mascot’s Ass.

Look, no matter how this whole playoff thing ends between the Bucks and the Hawks(butlet’sfaceittheBucksaretotallygoingtotaketheseries), we know one thing: we have the most badass mascot in the entire NBA—Bango.  Is it his brown fuzzy biceps? Nope. His “menacing-but-in-a-totally-cute-and-cuddly way” antlers?  Not even close.  It’s his ability to take a flying back flip off a ladder, dunk a ball, and LIVE to do it again.  We are humbled by your greatness, Bango.  Nice work.

Honda Civic Tour Lineup Announced

Scheduled acts this year include Tegan and Sara, New Found Glory and Kadawatha.  This year, the show will be held at the Miller stage on the Summerfest grounds. You can find ticket information here.

Good-Bad Romance?

Ok, when you take out Lady Gaga’s alien noise-making and ignore the fact that no one really knows what a vertigo stick is, Bad Romance is well, really good.  30Seconds to Mars takes a stab at Ms. Gaga’s super mega hit and makes it all dark and mystical…like Jared Leto’s eyebrows.
