From "In the Air Tonight" to "Kiss" to, well, this week, the definitive sound of the '80s were gated-reverb drums.

This tool shows where the closest Confederate monuments are to your location, and this tool shows you the closest Home Depot that offers rentals of mini-excavators and demolition equipment. Just saying.

Arrested 14 times while performing, "showtime" dancer Michael Brundage made it into an Intel video. While he put himself through a year of Brooklyn College on tips, he says gentrification is quashing artistry and erasing a viable job market. "We need to decriminalize it.

In honor of the news that Chuck E. Cheese is phasing out its animatronic bands—a move that will spark outrage only among those too old (or therapied) to remember the terror of being in the same room with a giant robot rat—here's one of Showbiz Pizza's Rock-afire Explosion bands, salvaged and reprogrammed to play Usher's "Love in This Club." (For more on the second life of the Rock-afire Explosion, the documentary about its creator is a lot of fun.)
