About Jay Babcock

I am the co-founder and editor of Arthur Magazine (2002-2008, 2012-13) and curator of the three Arthur music festival events (Arthurfest, ArthurBall, and Arthur Nights) (2005-6). Prior to that I was a district office staffer for Congressman Henry A. Waxman, a DJ at Silver Lake pirate radio station KBLT, a copy editor at Larry Flynt Publications, an editor at Mean magazine, and a freelance journalist contributing work to LAWeekly, Mojo, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Vibe, Rap Pages and many other print and online outlets. An extended piece I wrote on Fela Kuti was selected for the Da Capo Best Music Writing 2000 anthology. In 2006, I was one of five Angelenos listed in the Music section of Los Angeles Magazine's annual "Power" issue. In 2007-8, I produced a blog called "Nature Trumps," about the L.A. River. Today, I live a peaceful life in the rural wilderness of Joshua Tree, California, where I am a partner in JTHomesteader.com with Stephanie Smith.

  1. C’mon Arthur, you can do better. This isn’t nearly bad enough to be interesting or funny. May as well post a Dave Matthews Band video.

  2. Water, fire, air, and earth fuckin magnets how do they work!

    Greatest line.

    Fine combination of sincerity, absurdity, and idiocy.

  3. Like they walked off the set of Xavier: Renegade Angel, if Xavier had a set of course. Amazing. 2012-themed song-video w/ floating Pinchbeck clownhead will be next, no doubt dog.

  4. The whole juggaloos thing blows my mind. Some friends of my girls sister are into that whole scene. I think i would be to freaked out by it, but would love to visit the Juggaloo festival they have in the mid-West.
