The Drought Has Ended
In the wake of the stunning sales success of Morrissey‘s Autobiography and the news that he is planning to write a debut novel, we learn today that Moz has FINALLY secured himself a record deal! It’s been almost 5 years since Morrissey released his last album because he has been without a record label all that time. It would seem that Moz‘s success outside of the music world has made him more attractive to the music world again. Not only do we learn that Morrissey has a record deal that will result in a new album but we also learn that he is planning to go on tour later this year! Woot! Click below to read excerpts from the just-issued press release announcement regarding Morrissey‘s new record deal and forthcoming concert tour. More »

Expanding the Spidey Universe
Last week we got to see the first trailer for the upcoming sequel film The Amazing Spider-Man, due out in May, but today we learn that Sony Pictures is already looking beyond next year’s new film to a pair of spin-off films that will expand the Spidey universe at the box office. Sony has announced that in addition to a third Amazing Spider-Man film, they will produces films that are based on the villainous characters Venom and the The Sinister Six. Hmm. Part of me loves this idea. Another part of me hates it. While I would LOVE to see these characters come to life on the big screen, my fear is that we may get flooded with a bunch of movies that will cheapen the franchise and may make everyone sick and tired of Spider-Man and his cohorts.

After a hugely successful debut season on Netflix, the brilliantly engaging political drama series House of Cards will return for its second season on February 14, 2014. As you may recall, House of Cards became the first series ever to be nominated for a major award at the Emmy Awards without having ever aired a single episode on television … in September, it won an Emmys for directing, casting and cinematography. Now that the series is returning for a second season, I’m sure it will make every attempt to surpass the success of the first season.

Nike has teamed up with Hasbro to create a line of sneakers based on Megatron, the leader of the villainous Decepticons from the world of Transformers. Because he has been nicknamed Megatron for years now, Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, Jr. has been made the sports spokesmodel for this line of shoes, which only makes all of the sense in the world. It appears that Johnson had some say in the way the shoes were designed but the color scheme is based on a newer version of Megatron (Jet form) rather than the original version of Megatron (Gun form). All I can say about these shoes is OMG, WOW, WANT!!! More »
