    The Live New Year's Eve Train Wreck, Perfected

    Written by

    Yeah, yeah. It's January 3, already. But seriously, this happened. And it proves, yet again, that on any given New Year's Eve, someone is always having a better (worse?) time than you, even if you're not one for trekking out on what's otherwise a completely arbitrary demarcation of another lap around the Sun.

    This live New Year's Eve broadcast out of KDOC in Los Angeles went horribly--wonderfully--off the rails. The entire thing feels written. I'm not sure what really makes it: Bone Thugs straight not giving a fuck? Macy Gray seemingly blazed off her rocker? The curtain-drop "fight"? The silence? Some awful combination thereof?

    It's doesn't even matter. Cheers.
