“That whole first album was me in the studio, just messing around"
Last week we learned that Nine Inch Nails has been nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the class of 2015 in its first year of eligibility. Yesterday, NIN‘s debut album Pretty Hate Machine turned 25 years old, which is why NIN is eligible this year for induction into the Rock Hall. 25 years. Again I am floored by how quickly the time has passed. Earlier this year, I marveled that two of my all-time favorite albums — Tori Amos‘s Under The Pink and NIN‘s The Downward Spiral — turned 20 years old this year. Now that I’m faced with the fact that another of my all-time fave albums is celebrating a milestone anniversary, I find myself floored with wonder again. More »

85 years ago today, Walt Disney‘s first major character Oswald the Lucky Rabbit made his debut in a cartoon titled Trolley Troubles. That’s right, before there was Mickey Mouse, there was Oswald. As some of you may know, Disney sold off Oswald to another company and went on to create the very similar looking Mickey Mouse … and the rest is history. For many years, the Disney corporation tried to buy back the rights to Oswald and in 2006, they finally bought back the rights to the character. Oswald has since appeared in Disney video games and even makes appearances at international Disney theme parks but at long last, in honor of his 85th anniversary, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit is FINALLY making his debut here at Disneyland. Earlier this week, Oswald was introduced in the park at a private event for a lucky audience and starting September 14, Oswald will become a PERMANENT character that you can meet and greet in the park. For the first time since he was created in the 1920s, Oswald is coming home. More »
