Rocky Rakovic
I'm not really sure what elevator music is. I don't leave my apartment without putting on my earbuds, and at first I thought this added a personal soundtrack to my life, but I have since realized that I end up shutting out the sounds of the world, specifically music from car radios, store speakers, buskers, and the free spirits singing along to songs coming from their own headphones.

I loved the CM Punk interview [May 2012]! He is my favorite wrestler of all time because he respects the old school while not being some fake cartoon character. As he says, wrestling is real—you can get really hurt— but the WWE is filled with guys in masks and neon tights.

DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s “Summertime” is on heavy radio rotation, the Red Sox are in their mid-season slump, and everybody is putting citrus into their beers—it must be summer. If you are in any state other than Hawaii, it's inappropriate to quaff piña coladas in December.

tubes
The internet “is not a big truck”; it’s “a series of tubes,” said senator Ted Stevens. In Tubes, Andrew Blum takes readers on a quest to map the landmarks that made the internet possible. Throw away your preconceived notions about the nebulous nature of the web and discover lots of corporate infrastructure, including massive, anonymous data centers in suburban America and high-security routing hubs in key European cities—all connected, of course, by a series of tubes. It's a groundbreaking piece of travel and tech writing that will change the way you think about our interconnected world. But a bit of fair warning: This one has a high nerd quotient.

PROMETHEUS
Ridley Scott returning to sci-fi is huge, but him returning to the Alien universe is übergeektastic. What started off as a true Alien prequel has evolved into something else. The plot is top-secret and the makers claim our beloved xenomorphs won't be showing up, but the glimpses of Weyland company logos, derelict spacecraft, space jockey, and H.R. Giger creepiness still scream Alien. Avengers and Hobbits are cool, but Prometheus is without a doubt the most highly anticipated flick of the year, and we hope it scares the shit out of us.

SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN
Don't let the presence of Kristen Stewart fool you. Snow White and the Huntsman is a dark, serious, and solid action-adventure that’s far from the tone of the Disney version and that god-awful Mirror Mirror. In this new vision of the tale we all know, the evil queen (Charlize Theron) wants Snow White (Stewart) dead, but the young woman has been training in the art of war with the very same Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) who was dispatched to kill her. The effects are stunning, and Charlize looks fucking awesome as the Evil Queen. —G.M.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER
Based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith and directed by the visionary Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Night Watch), this wicked-looking flick reimagines the life of America’s beloved president Abe Lincoln as a vampire hunter! Turns out, he wasn't just freeing slaves; he was stopping the undead from dominating the country. Benjamin Walker plays the titular role and certainly looks the part, while Mary Elizabeth Winstead plays Mary Todd. Tim Burton produces. What an interesting alternative to Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, coming later this year. —G.M.

LETHAL WEAPON COLLECTION
One of the best buddy cop series of all time is getting its glorious Blu-ray box set treatment just in time for Father’s Day. In this five-disc set, you get all four films and loads of extras, including four featurettes about the making of each film, deleted scenes, outtakes, and cast interviews with Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, Rene Russo, Joe Pesci, and Richard Donner. It's hard to believe Riggs and Murtaugh have been around for 25 years, but no matter how long ago it was—or how many times you’ve seen these flicks—you're never “too old for this shit." Bring on Lethal Weapon 5. —G.M.

LOLLIPOP CHAINSAW
PLATFORMS: PLAYSTATION 3, XBOX 360 When a San Romero High School goth geek gets revenge on the student body by turning them into brain-eating undead, a bubbly cheerleader shows her school spirit by putting down the pom-poms and picking up a chainsaw. Meet Juliet Starling, a well-endowed, scantily clothed babe who has more talent than her surface traits imply. Using her acrobatic training in tandem with her custom chainsaw, this deadly vixen methodically sweeps the cafeteria, gym, and school parking lot, carving up zombies to a soundtrack provided by Mindless Self Indulgence’s Jimmy Urine. When the horde overwhelms her, she can enlist the help of her disembodied boyfriend, who takes control of decapitated zombies to even up the odds. The only hall pass you need to enjoy this lighthearted high school romp is a tolerance for bloodshed, skin, and swearing. Play if you like: The Evil Dead, No More Heroes, Grindhouse

SPEC OPS: THE LINE
PLATFORMS: PLAYSTATION 3, XBOX 360, PC With gorgeous resorts, opulent hotels, and indoor ski resorts, Dubai acts as the Las Vegas of the Middle East. But after a crippling sandstorm devastates the desert city and the U.S. loses contact with the infantry team sent in to coordinate the evacuation, a small team of Delta Force operators is dispatched to search for survivors. They arrive to bodies hanging from street lamps and the lost Colonel broadcasting cryptic messages throughout the largely abandoned tourist destination. Like the infamous Colonel Kurtz from Apocalypse Now, this former charismatic leader has gone rogue and his infantry unit is blindly following his orders to oppose your presence. Can you turn the gun on your fellow soldiers as you journey into the heart of darkness? Play if you like: Apocalypse Now, BioShock, Army of Two: The 40th Day —M.B.

DARKSIDERS II
PLATFORMS: PLAYSTATION 3, XBOX 360, PC Being one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is a lot more political than just spreading war, death, pestilence, and famine to the four corners of the world. After the horseman War is blamed for prematurely starting Armageddon on earth, his brother Death travels to the Nether Realms between heaven and hell to try and clear his name. With famed comic book artist Joe Madureira as creative director, this sequel builds upon the original sleeper hit in every meaningful way. With intense hack-and-slash combat, a huge world ripe for exploration, loot-filled dungeons, and a role-playing-game-style progression system, you don’t need to be a biblical scholar to get sucked into this fantasy adventure game. Play if you like: God of War, Battle Chasers, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver —M.B.

If you answered A, you can stop reading and just ogle the girl to the right. B, you are already fried. C, know this: Sun protection is the most important thing you can do for your skin—and your tattoos. Even though you might buy the stuff, “99 percent of the problem is that people don't put it on,” says David J. Ores, M.D. Now for the fine print: Slapping some goop on your face once or twice in the summer won't cut the mustard.

BLOW THE ROOF OFF
Everything is more fun topless. Hop into a convertible this summer.
FIAT
[no value]
FIAT
500C
The 2013 model from the Italian automaker is simple and streamlined, with a doublelayer weatherproof top fixed along two tracks on the roof. You can pull the top all the way back and fold it behind the passenger headrest, or you can pull it back partially like a sunroof. The clean and tailored dash features a center-mounted circular dual display for the speedometer and tachometer, which seems all too at home in the 500C’s TIE fighter couture interior. The rest of the model is as customizable as a fine Italian suit, with a range of options from a heated-seat leather luxury package to a Bose sound system or navigation system.
FIAT
CORVETTE 427
The 2013 Vette marks the 60th anniversary of the iconic family of American automobiles. As a nod to the 427 Big-Block engines of decades past, Chevy keeps its eyes on the horizon by housing a 427-cubic-inch engine under the revamped hood of its new Corvette. The 427 is decked out in carbon fiber components, making It a remarkably lightweight ride considering it has the most powerful engine that Chevy has ever put in this particular family of vehicles. How powerful? The 2013 boasts a monstrous 505 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. As the last model of the C6 generation, it’s a rolling piece of history, and a commemorative anniversary edition is available with white with blue stripes stitched across the soft top.
FIAT
WRANGLER UNLIMITED
Wranglers are a rare breed of vehicle. You’d be hard pressed to find another machine on the market that’s as rough as it is reliable, equal parts brains and balls. The off-road icon has seen few major changes since its predecessor, the Jeep CJ, was introduced in the '40s, and its utilitarian design has stood the test of time. The 2013 Unlimited is fully capable of climbing a mountain straight off the showroom floor, and because of that it’s one of the safest vehicles on or off the road, with available ABS and antiskid and traction control. A soft top comes standard and folds down in a matter of minutes, and the available hard top pops off without a hitch. Now go play in the dirt.
FIAT
128I CONVERTIBLE
Nothing says smooth like a Bimmer, and the 128I is no different. With its crisp lines, bold curves, and overall performance, the smallest BMW on the market definitely grabs attention without grabbing too much hard-earned cash out of your pocket. The latest installment in the series is this convertible hatch that, despite its size, still packs a mean 230 horsepower from its 3.0-liter in-line six. Like most BMWs, the 128I is made for the open road; the handling begs for tight turns and the relatively tall tires ensure a smooth ride. Overall, it’s an unmistakable child of the BMW family, built to cruise and look good doing it. So pull back the ragtop, buckle up, and keep it classy.
Nick Fierro
Summer is in full swing and It’s too short of a season to spend inside, even if you're driving. Other than sticking your head out the window like a Labradoodle or taking an angle grinder to your ride’s roof, the only way to cruise in full appreciation of the sun’s embrace is to convert—and we’re not talking about adopting Scientology.

“I really can’t sit still for very long—it makes me depressed," says raspyvoiced Nashville rockabilly singer Nikki Lane. Such is the stir-crazy philosophy that strings together most elements of her life: her rather nonlinear career path (a corporate job with Marc Ecko in New York dots her résumé before she even taught herself to write songs in her mid-20s), her “personal timeline” of impulsive tattoos, including the quote “wanderlust calls again" on her forearm, and the restless lyrics on her latest album, Walk of Shame, which chronicle everything from fleeing the morning after a one-night stand to feeling antsy just a month into a marriage.

Almost every sports cliché is born from the idea that each team member is but a small part of a whole: “There is no / in team,” “The name on the front of the jersey is more important than the name on the back,” etc. Individuality may not necessarily be frowned upon, but it is far from encouraged.

YOU KNOW THE STONE PONY, THE BOSS'S PLACE IN ASBURY PARK, NJ, BUT three blocks away, across a freshly paved municipal parking lot, sits The Bouncing Souls' home: Asbury Lanes. The heart of The Bouncing Souls (named from the Dr. Martens "With Bouncing Soles" tag), Bryan Kienlen and Pete Steinkopf, invite us into their joint.

It’s long been a fusion of deep growls, heavy distortion, and buckets of testosterone. But now there are a few inked-up ladies who can melt faces too. Metal may have been a man’s world, but the women on these pages are blowing the boys’ long hair back.

Q+A DUFF MCKAGAN
He’s played in GNR, Velvet Revolver, Loaded, and Jane’s Addiction, but more impressive is that this hard rocker is a New York Times best-selling author with It’s So Easy [and Other Lies].

TIM MOHR
In 1984, Duff McKagan, just a punk kid from Seattle, drove his old Ford to L.A. to try to escape the drug-infested Northwest scene where he had been playing drums, guitar, and a little bass in bands like the Fastbacks and Ten Minute Warning.

Craig Owens
FROM THE DESK OF CRAIG OWENS... These days I see so many jaded musicians living amongst the world of rockers, and it truly bums me out. It’s not that I have never seen these people before—I grew up in the music scene of Flint, MI, where “jaded” is considered borderline positive— but I personally vow to never become one of them.

The doors open at 2 p.m. Though rows of chairs are set before the raised stage, once the feverish thrashing of the drums and the heavy guitar riffs sound, the crowd is lifted to its feet. Moved by the music, the reactions range from letting out loud, exulted screams or hushed, whimpering cries with flowing streams of tears to jumping in place or circling the room like children with excessive energy to burn.

For centuries people have said that idle hands are the devil’s workshop, meaning that when people are left with nothing to do they turn to vice. When the phrase was coined in medieval England, no one imagined that tattooing could be the virtue in such a situation, but that is the case in the life of Keith Underwood.

Decked out in dapper, well-tailored suits with poise and a dashing demeanor, Mo Coppoletta could easily be mistaken for a fashion editor at British Vogue. But this Verona-born artist, whose shop is located in what was once known as the Little Italy of London, Exmouth Market, would rather roll up his sleeves, slap on a pair of medical gloves, and wrap his fingers around a tattoo machine.

You have a lot of strong, bold work. How important is black to your palette? Black is extremely important, for sure. The amount of black used can make or break the tattoo. I use a lot of black in my tattoos because I feel that it gives them a dark, solid, tough look.

To rock in the coolest month we turned The Canal Room into The Max, where the Bayside Tigers and our Inked Girl, Seventy Arniotis, performed after DJ Michael Formika Jones and Bomb Vodka warmed up the heavily tattooed throng.

Set Your Goals and Cartel absolutely ripped up the Gramercy Theatre on their Live Nation tour. The crowd was rockin' and sported some serious style, from tattoos of a tall ship and a dominatrix to ’80s-style Little League jerseys. Even the cutie at the merch table who looked like she didn't have ink kicked off her shoes to show she had both feet done.
