A few months ago, Shane Told of Silverstein reached out to me about starting up a monthly sports column on the site. I thought why not? We have a very strong sports forum and a lot of our users are very knowledgable about various sports. Now that his band just wrapped up its stint on this past summer's Warped Tour, Shane sent me his inaugural AP.net sports column, which you can read in the replies. It's not often that sports and this scene crossover, but in this month's column Shane discusses how musicians and athletes cheat to get ahead.

We've got a really great exclusive for you guys today. You might not recognize the name Dave Hill right now, but with all the pots he has his hands in, you will soon.

The group is gearing up to release their third album, Use Your Weapons, next Tuesday, but we're happy to be streaming the entire record a few days early.

A few AP users attended tonight's date of the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Fest, at the end of which headliner Dave Chappelle had an unusual set. After about five minutes of trying to do his act per usual, repeated shouts of either praise or Chappelle's Show quotes from the crowd prompted him to say that 'you are wasting your money, I'm still getting paid.' As the shouting continued, he stopped his act, sat on the stage, and began smoking, refusing to continue until it quieted down. The audience began to turn on him, and Chappelle began saying how bad the crowd was. After about twenty-five minutes of back-and-forth with the crowd, he began reading from a book aloud on the edge of the...
