WATCH // Dinosaur Jr. Premieres “Pierce The Morning Rain” Video

What happens when you combine American suburbia, one heck of a stereo system and Henry Rollins? An awesome Dinosaur Jr. music video. Directed by Emmy-winny comedy writer and director Scott Jacobson (Bob’s Burgers, Saturday Night Live), “Pierce the Morning Rain” stars actor James Urbaniak (Homeland, The Venture Brothers) and comedian Maria Bamford as your average, middle-aged couple whose lives are transformed by playing Dinosaur Jr. as loudly as technology allows. You can watch the video at SPIN or above.

Here’s a welcomed sight! It’s a photo (courtesy of Ray Gordon) of J Mascis and Carrie Brownstein hanging out. Just a little preparation for the new Portlandia episode airing on Friday, January 25th.

Dinosaur Jr. took over New York City’s Terminal 5 on Saturday to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their second studio album, You’re Living All Over Me. They were not alone in this endeavor; Kim Gordon, Lee Ranaldo, Johnny Marr, Kevin Drew, Frank Black, Tommy Stinson, Kurt Vile and Fred Armisen all took the stage at one point. For those who were not able to attend, we turn to the wonderful thing that is Youtube. Lots of showgoers captured live video – check out the clips in our playlist above.

Originally released in 1987 on SST Records, You’re Living All Over Me is now available at SC Distribution.

REAL TALK // J Mascis on WTF with Marc Maron

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.

COOL STUFF: Dinosaur Jr. Dolls (No Lie)

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.
