Interview With an Angry Samoan

Gregg Turner is alive and well in Santa Fe, and playing the hits

Gregg Turner is known to most as a founding member of the Angry Samoans, a Los Angeles hardcore band that began in 1978. He is also known, perhaps, to a different slice of the population as a record reviewer for Creem Magazine (1976-1998) where he was noted for his inspired hatchet jobs on the likes of Bon Jovi, The Who and even Iggy Pop.

Chris Evans as Captain America

Taxes

Hey, it’s Tax Day! Is that Captain America?

On Election Day, its common to see those who participated in the democratic process sporting an oval-shapped sticker with an American flag declaring “I Voted” Where’s the one for “I Filed My Tax Return”? I suppose it is one of the most hated aspects of being a citizen of the union. Like voting, not all Americans participate. But unlike voting, the feds really (really) want you to. Nay, require you.

Along with the filming of The Avengers in Downtown Albuquerque this morning, protesters turned out to participate in the MoveOn.org organized gathering to draw attention to corporate tax shenanigans. With all the film equipment, lighting vans, kraft service carts and security guards, I (for one) mistook the protesters as part of the movie’s background. In reality, I was too busy gawking towards the director chair trying to catch a glimpse of the ultimate patriot. I bet Captain America filed his tax return.
