That article was unreadable. It read like it was mashed together by an AI. Quotes and references out of nowhere, incomplete and run on sentences.

Fishburne was 14 when filming in Apocalypse Now started, but that took so long he seems to have old enough to get into clubs when it ended.

That's cool and all, but did anyone pick up on this, smack dab in the middle of this: Kanye West has no problem supporting Marilyn Manson: 'They can't cancel us all'Talking on a podcast about his support of Marilyn Manson and DaBaby, the rapper now known simply as Ye said he's 'above' cancel culture?

Someone was editing two articles at the same time, and maybe forgot a cut or two.

I do like that he gives a shout out to the new wave of Spanish ska out there. Mexico, South America, even Spain itself, has a strong ska scene, and some frippin' great bands. A lot of the ska that I listen to now is coming out of Mexico and SoCal from the Mexican scene, and they've got a strong vibe.

It looks like a (poorly) automated click generator.  Its MX points to yandex, but it hides its ownership and other details.

https://dnstools.ws/whois/Headtopics.com/ says it's hosted in Nuremburg, Germany.
https://www.statshow.com/www/headtopics.com says "Tracing of headtopics.com"
"headtopics.com is hosted by Arapahoe School District #6 in Littleton, Colorado." Don't know why that is.

It's whois agent is Domain Protection Services, Inc in Denver. So, anonymous for now.

We may not want to bookmark the site...because it sucks.

It probably was.  The bottom of the article has the link to the LA Times report it's based off of.

old music buff friend always spoke of this band with reverence.  not necessarily "teen-driven energy", but still beautiful:
