More Press

We’ll get all these arranged nicely in the Press section eventually, but here are two more Topless-related features from the interweb. The first is an interview with an Iowa paper, written by my friend Kembrew McLeod. Kembrew’s a prankster as well a respected academic, so you can understand why we get along. We did the […]

Webcast Aftermath

Wine Time with Wonderlick, in which Jay and I spent a little over a half hour drinking a fine bottle of Bordeaux, giving each other shit, and responding to comments typed in by viewers, was kinda fun and kinda embarrassing. The high point was probably when […]

Video Shoot

I like watching music videos, but I hate being in them. Miming is evil. Jay’s a little more of a ham than I am, but neither of us feel compelled to spend an inordinate amount of time in our own video. So a bunch of gracious volunteers will be sitting on this couch today, making […]

New Site

Welcome to the new Wonderlick website. We’ve pre-populated it with some of the recent news from the old site,  various posts from Lick’s Facebook page, and several years’ worth of interviews and reviews. But the real action is in the future — we’ll be turning various widgets on and off and maybe moving things around […]

Lowest donation was $5.00, highest was $500. We decided not to count the lowest and highest donations when calculating […]
