Ben Weinman Dillinger Escape Plan

Birthed out of the hardcore punk scene in beautiful Morris Plains, New Jersey, The Dillinger Escape Plan have been rocking balls since 1997. To describe their chaotic blend of anything and everything to the average listener is like trying to explain the splendor of the Grand Canyon to a blind person- not worth the effort.

'Tell-All' Audiobook Giveaway From BlackStone Audio - Winners Announced

Updated: This contest has officially ended.  Winners were announced on our Twitter page.  Congrats to everyone who played and won!

Blackstone Audio is donating ten audiobooks for Tell-All to ten lucky winners.  Five of the audiobooks will be actual CDs and the other five will be those popular iPhone apps we were giving away last month.  Like our previous giveaways, this contest will go down on our Twitter.

Homework Assignment: Tweet us your most awkward celebrity photo.  This means we want a candid of you and a celebrity and it has to be very douche-chilly and 'fanboyish'.  We will chose the 5 best and they will have their first crack at whether they want a CD or iPhone app audiobook of Tell-All.  Then we'll choose 5 runner-ups and they will get what's left.

No Photoshopping on this one, folks.  Make sure you Tweet this photo to our Twitter page @chuckpalahniuk and use the tag #TellAllAudio.

Just remember, don't email us your pics or post them here or on our Facebook.  Rather, Tweet them to our @chuckpalahniuk Twitter account.  Also, make sure you have an iPhone before you play, as the app won't work anywhere else.

Check out Blackstone Audio's Tell-All app here!

I was at Urban Outfitters shopping for overpriced t-shirts when I first encountered Tao, existentially speaking.  Staring up at me with its minimalist cover design was a little novella called, Shoplifting From American Apparel.  The title grabbed me, so I did what I do with any book: read the synopsis, the author bio, a random page in the middle.  Later that night, I’ve got the novella sitting next to my Mac as I’m looking this guy up on Wikipedia.

Tao Lin: 26 years old, lives in New York.  Has published five books.

Square-jawed, buttoned-down Chuck Palahniuk, kicking off a tour for his new book, Tell-All, chats with him smilingly about an Iowa wrestling tournament both he and the waiter have been to, and signs an autograph. Just a couple of bros.
