Four large wildfires blazed across Southern California late Thursday, destroying several structures on the Palos Verdes Peninsula and prompting evacuations there and in a densely populated area of La Cañada Flintridge.

At least 1,700 firefighters were battling fires in Portuguese Bend on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, in Hemet, just north of La Cañada Flintridge and above Azusa. In each case, the fires were fueled by dense, dry vegetation and record high temperatures, according to authorities. Continue Reading

“CANT BELIEVE THEY REPLACED BEASTIES WITH TENACIOUS D ??????????????????????AND IF I PULL OUT THEY SUE! SO REALLY? TENACIOUS D AFTER ME ?”

M.I.A. isn’t happy with the Beastie Boys’ replacement at the Outside Lands festival. [Via Pitchfork]

Read this loon’s Twitter Feed – http://twitter.com/_M_I_A_. “BEASTIES GET WELL SOON!”
She does not even mention that Adam Yauch has cancer. I sure hope that they find a cure for cancer by Sunday, so M.I.A. doesn’t have to open up for Tenacious D.

“YOUR ALL WELCOME ON STAGE FROM THE GET GO, FUCK IT! IM TAKIN BIRD FLU OUT OF THE SET ! JUS TO MAKE A POINT!”
Great idea. Let’s cause a riot for M.I.A.
