    Andy Vandal of THE RIPTIDES contributes his favorites of the year:

    Ricky Gervais hosting the Golden Globes
    He was so controversial in the 2011 ceremony with his skewering of Hollywood egos, they asked for him to come back and host in 2012. Genius.


    Game of Thrones" (TV / Books)
    Admittedly, I was late to the table in discovering George R. R. Martin’s brilliant series “A Song of Fire and Ice.” But after watching the exceptional HBO series, I dove into the novels and I am now consumed by them like wildfire on the Blackwater Rush. Winter is Coming.


    Seal Team Six’s Dog
    The Team that silenced Osama had help from a four legged friend that served to detect explosives, protect the soldiers and locate Bin Laden himself. That’s just awesome. The President thought so and insisted on thanking the dog personally.


    Ron Swanson" (Nick Offerman) from NBC’s "Parks and Recreation"
    One of the funniest characters on TV.


    Tim Thomas (Boston Bruins)
    It’s hard to remember an NHL goalie who has dominated a season as Thomas did in his 2010/11 campaign. Vezina Trophy, Conn Smythe Trophy (ie: league MVP), Stanley Cup winner, NHL 1st-line All-Star. 2011 was HIS year. And he did it all with a smile on his face.


    Breaking Bad”, “Walking Dead”, “Boardwalk Empire”, “Game of Thrones”, “Sons of Anarchy
    Best dramas on TV.


    Modern Family”, “Happy Endings”, “Louie”, “Community
    Best comedies on TV.


    Dan Aykroyd’s “Crystal Head” vodka
    No, this has nothing to do with the disastrous “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” - this is simply a vodka that Mr. Ghostbuster has packaged into an insanely awesome crystal skull. Made in Newfoundland too, eh!


    And lastly, this: http://www.youtube.com/

    The two RIPTIDES split 7 inches with the DWARVES and the QUEERS are now available. Both are limited to 500 and come on fancy swirled colored vinyl. These will never be re-pressed. Once they are gone, they are gone for good. It is highly likely that these will be sold out by the end of the month, so if you are a vinyl collector then get these collector items before it’s too late.
Buy them here!

    CONTEST: OPEN FOR THE QUEERS!
THE QUEERS w/ special guests KEPI GHOULIE and the RIPTIDES present: ROCKET TO AMERICA TOUR 2010 Ok, since it’s no secret that the QUEERS love the RAMONES, we’ve decided  it would be great to have bands do a cover of their favorite RAMONES  song.  Here’s the info. we need from you: -Send us a link to your band doing a cover of a RAMONES song.  It can be  from a live show via you tube or a ghetto recording posted on myspace.   Please do not spend money trying to record something fancy.  Any ghetto  recording will do.  And please don’t attach a wav file, just a link to  the song.  And do not send more than one song for us to check out.  -Please list the show that you are applying for.(Only one show per band)   And that goes for the unconfirmed cities too.  Please apply only for  your hometown market.  The purpose of this is to give a boost to the  local music scene, so if you are from San Francisco, please don’t apply  for the HOLLYWOOD show.  -When sending your info., please email gabe@asianmanrecords.com  Do not  reply to this email.  Submissions not to Gabe will get tossed in the  trash.  Ok, that’s the info. we need.  As for how we are deciding the winners??   Well, I’m not quite sure.  I’m thinking of doing some kind of online  voting, but I’m not 100% sure yet.  But wanted to at least open the door  for submissions.  -The deadline to submit stuff is September 17th.   We will have all the winners announced by September 22nd.  The winning bands will receive a QUEERS prize package that includes a  copy of their new album, button, and t-shirt for each member of the  selected bands.

    CONTEST: OPEN FOR THE QUEERS!

    THE QUEERS w/ special guests KEPI GHOULIE and the RIPTIDES present: ROCKET TO AMERICA TOUR 2010

    Ok, since it’s no secret that the QUEERS love the RAMONES, we’ve decided it would be great to have bands do a cover of their favorite RAMONES song. Here’s the info. we need from you:

    -Send us a link to your band doing a cover of a RAMONES song. It can be from a live show via you tube or a ghetto recording posted on myspace. Please do not spend money trying to record something fancy. Any ghetto recording will do. And please don’t attach a wav file, just a link to the song. And do not send more than one song for us to check out.
    -Please list the show that you are applying for.(Only one show per band) And that goes for the unconfirmed cities too. Please apply only for your hometown market. The purpose of this is to give a boost to the local music scene, so if you are from San Francisco, please don’t apply for the HOLLYWOOD show.
    -When sending your info., please email gabe@asianmanrecords.com Do not reply to this email. Submissions not to Gabe will get tossed in the trash.

    Ok, that’s the info. we need. As for how we are deciding the winners?? Well, I’m not quite sure. I’m thinking of doing some kind of online voting, but I’m not 100% sure yet. But wanted to at least open the door for submissions.

    -The deadline to submit stuff is September 17th.
    We will have all the winners announced by September 22nd.
    The winning bands will receive a QUEERS prize package that includes a copy of their new album, button, and t-shirt for each member of the selected bands.
    Below is a list of the confirmed shows and the unconfirmed shows. Again, please only apply if you are a local band in one of these markets.
