MUSIC + TV SHOWS: Former Ween member Mickey Melchiondo (Dean Ween) sets sights on reality TV stardom with Primus co-star and South Park producers

Looks like there’s a reality-TV show that I might actually watch! This will fill the void left behind by Kenny Vs. Spenny dying down.

MUSIC: Ween breaks up – Stereogum

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!

But can’t say I didn’t see this coming – it’s been longer since a proper Ween release than at any point in their 25 year career.

I’m glad I got to see them live 7 times (10 of you count Gene Ween band and Gene Ween solo shows).

It looks like of my 3 favorite bands even (The Misfits, Atari Teenage Riot, Ween) — there is still 1 left: Atari Teenage Riot who recently reformed. (No, the new Misfits don’t count.)

This is the saddest music news since the death of Type O Negative singer Peter Steele.
