If ever a country has seemed on the cusp of civil war, the USA is that country
this is how it could end: not with a bang but with a runny nose
the same mistake they had made in Iran with the Shah
Whatever “dragon energy” is I’m almost sure it’s the only common ground Kanye and Trump have
Obviously allot of blue collar vacation clubs and executive mid life crises, that’s what. When your headliners is Five Finger Death Punch, its not the most upper crust clientele.
Anyone who knows depression and the aftermath of such knows that any ounce of assistance means hope. To be acknowledged that you’re ‘not alone’ can often mean the difference of not giving up.
I cant help but wonder if he will outdo that statue, Morrissey’s giant hair in bronze? Also, why the heck get buried in LA you’re just gonna float out to sea eventually anyway.
So Beach House said no to the agency, which hired a band (named Sniffy Dog, according to the AV Club) specialized in making sound-alike songs for ads…. Is that even allowed? Why powerful corporations always get away with murder like this?
If you needed a correspondence with both arts, you have it! ‘My Own Worst Enemy’, the title of the exhibit, a collection of many different mediums with abstract paintings, screen prints and collages, had attracted a large crowd in the small gallery on Friday night.
Yuck! I would rather change my flight than share some oxygen with that dumbass. Then he continued with formulas like ‘she was one of us’, ‘she was a committed Christian’, ‘She was a right-winger’, and ‘She came to hate the smut on the radio. She was not a fan of rap music at all.’
Bono, with all that superfluous money, it is now time to put an end on AIDS once for all, it’s time to put your Christian rock into practice, you have the power! Now you are like Jesus with a lot of money, I mean you already had a lot of money, but now it looks like a divine benediction, a sign of god
Beth Ditto at one point, but may be you can’t blame them as the band didn’t seem to be really into it, Beth butchered a little bit the lyrics at one point and their arrangement was a little sloppy, but I would say in a good way! At least, they were not trying to take the easy road
‘To everyone who”s given me the opportunity to work with them, from Marc Anthony, Enrique Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez, Usher and Chris Brown. I look at it as a platform to get to each other’s fans and give them different worlds,’ he told Extra.
Directed by Jose Vega, who also works with Muse And Music, the visuals are an animated wonder and I plan to write it when I can figure out how. As for Veronica, the one song I’ve heard is terrrific: sort of old school Brit rock with heavy keyboards. If you like their FB page you will see what I mean.
Their website www.sigur-ros.co.uk will have a special platform that will broadcast the album at 7pm in your timezone, as well as the album airing on certain radio stations and in record stores, making for 24 hours of Valtari. Ohh hurray for Australia you’re first.
But wow they are really re-launching this CBGB thing full time! A new location, a music festival and now a movie, it is difficult not to see an exploitation of the famous name behind all this
Should there not be some sense of musical education? Should there not be more than just a boat load of standards? Apparently not. Maybe they were available for graduation weekend so they booked them since there were slim pickin’s?
What can I say, these people live in another century, in another geological period, they keep their women under Burkas, so Gaga in full bra may come as a shock indeed. Muslim extremists have the biggest problem in the world with sexuality, as they come just behind the American Santorum-type.
There were warning strokes and a mish mosh of other maladies all screaming headlines of the rockers imminent death. The dude was being circled by vultures for months
Tastebuds and Fellody want you to find the love of your life based on your musical taste! Yeah right, as if it was that simple! The true Lonely Hearts Club I suppose
I was already complaining about some concert tickets I bought recently, as I had to decide right now if I would be available mid August… I don’t know what I will be doing in August! I hate this, I love the immediacy, I love deciding at the last minute what I am gonna do
“Speed of Life”, is the first book ever to show a visual account of David Bowie’s ongoing relationship with Japan and it’s influence on his work. Both authors’ words are written in English and Japanese, again adding to the arrogance level.
Leaks are planned by the way, there isn’t some covert operation of guys in ski caps stealing mp3 files and putting them on Youtube. Nope, they’re calculated publicity stunts that you fall for every time. It makes you feel as if you’re one step ahead of ‘the man’, but you aren’t.
Lets see Barbara is 70, looks fabulous, and has had a rather cushy life considering the majority of her fame came young. So why bother? Well a home town show is always good for a pocket full of millions but its also a great way to get your name back up the buzz list
Willis will also get a greater share of royalties than before, as he was merely getting 20% for any song with the old deal, and could now demand a one-third for ‘YMCA’ which has 3 authors
investors are going to organize the first CBGB music festival, which will take place from July 5-8 and showcase 300 indie bands at many venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn, as well as film screenings, panel discussions, workshops,… according to the Hollywood Reporter it will be modeled after SXSW.
Do they always ask the permission? Do they always pay the label they sample from? And why a lawsuit now, years and years after the release of these albums?
‘I’m going to have embarrassing moments’, he declared to Rolling Stone, ‘and that won’t be fun. But that’s part of what talking to you is about – is hoping people will understand, and hoping they’ll be fairly kind.’
I am not a fan of biopics, they all turn to be about the same story, but movie producers keep making some, so I suppose one about Jimi Hendrix was unavoidable.
“Censorship mattered more than the content of the Pistols. If you’re going to be celebrating what is great about Britain, the honesty of the Sex Pistols is one of those things. If you censor the words of any one song, you’re killing the honesty and I couldn’t tolerate that.”
I mean back in the day he was swoony as hell and women whipped their underwear at him. At the time having a pair of pink fruit of the looms whipped at the stage was the ultimate in sex symbol swag. I, for one, at age 4 found him to be the most delightfull of gents and was darn sure that dude would make me his wife.
As Alyson wrote of yesterrday, Coldplay tributed MCA. The difference here is our opinions of the action. I didn't know if i should laugh or cry when I saw this. I mean first off Chris Martin can make anything sound sad but with piano and hush, "Fight For Your Right To Party", takes on a…
Take a look at this official announcement video. Things are looking pretty good! But why are they using an old tune in the back ground? C’mon they could have snuck in a bit of new, instead just plain studio silliness.
Think what you want about Moore, but he is a daring individual, as he was asked if he would like to record a poem or maybe make a music video of some of the songs, and he said, ‘I could just sing a song’. People laughed but he ended up recording Bob Dylan’s ‘The Times They Are A Changin’ with Bob’s approval.
So if the trend seems to be towards healthy eating habits, there are a few exceptions: before a concert, M.I.A. sure asks for fresh fruit and vitamins, but she also requests absinthe!!! Adele wants Italian, French or Spanish wines, and Courtney Love is supposedly a sugar addict
I mean how can Chris Martin play this song this way whereas it was supposed to be a joke filled with rap gimmicks, rowdiness, disrespect and cream pies in everyone’s face? It’s an ode to having fun for the sake of it, it’s a paaaaarty song and Martin wants to make you cry with it?
I had the chance to take a look, and it is some impressive work, with large Renaissance-style oil-paintings portraits, exactly like the ones you see in art museum, except that you can recognize your favorite rappers in each of them.
What’s the deal with Wayne Coyne and blood, he keeps splashing his face with fake blood during concerts, he has already printed posters with his own blood, and now this! I am just wondering two things: How come the blood is not coagulating if this comes from several people?
With the sad passing of Adam Yauch, all kinds of tributes are going on everywhere. If the Beastie Boys were from New York, they certainly were also deeply connected with Los Angeles culture and a map of the Beastie Boys LA landmarks was set up by local radio KPCC
So what’s happening? Too many concerts on the market, too many options which actually turn people off? Are people watching more concerts online? Are concert tickets too expensive in these tough economy times?
‘It takes sleeping with a snake like you to rip apart my soul’, ‘Let you bleed all over me’, your typical Love signature, some provocative non-sense-crazy rant, angry for a reason she seems to be the only one to know.
One billion soda cans with Jackson’s image (which one should I ask?) will be on sale worldwide, beginning with China (really, China?) starting Saturday. Later this month, the US will be the first country to have the chance to see the special-edition-16-ounce cans inundate its grocery stores.
Yup, lets send out holograms of living and dead stars. We can do a hologram ‘We Are The World”, we can become a sci fi movie with this stuff, think about it. You can hire a hologram to perform in your backyard- really all you need is speakers and a projector.
I always wonder what is people’s intention when they follow this inexorable trend, Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson, Kurt Cobain,… their sales have tremendously increased after their deaths, but why exactly? Is it because people want to find a closure?
That musicians are now speaking out against Village Voice Media’s refusal to take down the Adult section of Backpage.com where pimps advertise the sale of girls for sex is significant
