Depending on your aural upbringing and age, the term "grunge" may conjure up wildly divergent things. Read all about Alibi Copy Editor/Staff Writer Mark Lopez's romance with the Seattle sound in Seattle Wall of Sound: A paean to grunge. For me, Nirvana's Bleach was revelatory; Lopez prefers In Utero. Exploring difference is fun, no? In honor of this myriad genre, I compiled an hour-long grunge-tastic playlist for our dear readers, featuring tracks by: Flipper, L7, Babes in Toyland, 7 Year Bitch, Hole, Nirvana, Mudhoney, Tad, Wool, Melvins, Sleep Capsule, Coffin Break, Soundgarden, Killdozer, Pixies, The Breeders and Green River.

Kinky is (Officially) Not a Diagnosis
The DSM Revision
Getting an update in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is a big deal, particularly when it's the type of update that officially means that what you do is no longer considered medically problematic. This happened in the 70s in regard to homosexuality, and earlier this month it's happened for kinky people.
