By Randy Harward

Music | What's On Your iPod? Five hits from Patrick Fugit’s iPhone.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Feb 4,2009 - Nine years and nine films after Almost Famous, Patrick Fugit still enjoys some anonymity. Even here in Salt Lake City, where he continues to make his home, he can get around without too much movie-star fuss—or industry rigmarole, which is why he never moved to Los Angeles in the first place.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Dec 31,2008 - The late Dr. Hunter S. Thompson had—has—quite a reputation, because he made such an impression with his work that others fold him into their own. Most have seen Johnny Depp’s portrayal of Thompson’s (slightly exaggerated) alter-ego, Raoul Duke, in Alex Cox’s film adaptation of Thompson’s most famous book, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

But there’s a catch: To get into it, you must be a fan of the Lips’ far-out sounds or at least attuned to the world of cult cinema. nWhat’s that, chorus of geeks? The Lips and cult fl...

POSTED // Dec 10,2008 - As the story goes, Salt Lake City’s Top Dead Celebrity needed a merch guy, and frontguy Jeff Anderson asked local music gadabout Jeremy Cardenas if he’d like the job. Cardenas said OK, and the band went on the road, where the following events took place: Cardenas stepped in a pile of human waste large enough to suck off his shoe. He was also ripped off by an unsightly stripper. Then TD...
