Record Store Day 2014 Was A Smashing Success

The TV Guide

Each year, independent record stores in the US and the UK participate in Record Store Day where customers are lured into their shops to buy limited edition releases on vinyl, cassette, etc. In years past, I’ve had varying degrees of success on RSD, oftentimes resulting in tears more than joy. This year, two of my all-time favorite bands — Garbage and Veruca Salt — released NEW music in honor of RSD and I knew that I HAD to be successful in procuring those releases … or else. The Garbage single is limited to 4000 copies and the VS single is limited to 1000 copies — worldwide! After many hours of waiting in line, and after making a few new friends in the process, I am happy to say that I was completely successful today in that I was able to get a copy of everything on my list :) More »

Plans Are In The Works To Reboot ‘Gremlins’

Way back in 2010 it was reported that plans were in the works for a new 3D sequel to the classic 80s movie Gremlins. Today we learn that those sequel plans have been scrapped in lieu of a new plan to reboot the film franchise altogether. At this point, there aren’t a lot of solid details about this reboot plan but it is being reported that the folks at Warner Bros. are keen on coming up with a whole new Gremlins movie to entertain a whole new generation of fans.

Courtney Love Announces The Reunion Of Hole

Together Again

Courtney Love has revealed that she and her former Hole bandmates — Eric Erlandson, Patty Schemel and Melissa Auf Der Maur — have reunited to see how they “feel” as whispers of a full on Hole reunion begin to swirl. Love is going on tour next month and it seems reasonable to believe that the original Hole line-up may be going on tour with her. The Quietus managed to speak “at length” with Courtney last night so more details are on the way about the possibility of an official Hole reunion … but as it stands right now, the bandmates are playing music together again and that bodes very well for the eventual return of Hole.

Now Spinning

The TV Guide

Inspired by that absolutely BRILLIANT video we saw yesterday of Kevin Bacon recreating his dance moves from the 1984 film Footloose on The Tonight Show Friday night, I decided that I wanted to watch that movie again yesterday afternoon. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find Footloose on cable and the only option available on On Demand was the 2011 remake. Undaunted, I figured I’d find the movie on Netflix or something but in the meantime, I decided to dig out the Footloose soundtrack on vinyl and give it a spin. Then, I played another record, then another … and decided to spend the rest of my afternoon/evening listening to records as I lazed about on the couch. Basically, I enjoyed the perfect Saturday at home. More »

Ariana Grande Talks Hair, Veganism, Madonna & More With ‘V’ Magazine

Grande Dame

Last week we got our first look at Lorde on the cover of the new issue of V magazine, the mag’s annual Music Issue. Today we get to see fellow popstar Ariana Grande in the pages of the very same issue of V. Ariana is rockin’ the hell out of her trademark high ponytail hair’do in her V photospread which, honestly, I’m not a huge fan of but, as you will read below, she loves entirely. Ariana talks about her hair, her staunch veganism, her love of all things Madonna and more. You will also see photos from Ariana‘s photospread, shot by Tom Munro, and see what the popstar looks like in Victoria’s Secret underwear. I mean, I guess it’s what you’d expect to see from a 20 year old singer in a fashion magazine, I suppose. More »

Ke$ha’s Mother Has Checked Into Rehab For Post-Traumatic Stress

She's Pointing The Finger At Ke$ha's Producer Again

At the start of the new year we learned that pop singer Ke$ha had checked herself into a rehab facility for an eating disorder. I used to watch a little bit of her reality show on MTV and I became a fan of hers, just sort of digging her general attitude and energy. Like many of you I was glad to hear that she had decided to get help, but also surprised that– like many celebrities and people the world over– she was struggling with body image issues. Shortly after she checked in, her mother Pebe Sebert came out and named Ke$ha‘s producer Dr. Luke as the person responsible for Ke$ha‘s eating disorder, claiming that he pressured her to lose weight. And now, at Ke$ha‘s urging, Pebe is checking into rehab as well. Click inside for more.

Amanda Bynes Will Be Cleared In That Alleged Bong-Throwing Incident

With continued good behavior, the case will be dismissed

Remember last May when Amanda Bynes was arrested for allegedly resisting arrest and throwing a bong out of the window of her NYC apartment (I mean, who could forget that pair of ratchet mug shots) resulting in her eviction from the premises? You may recall that in July she strutted into court to plead not guilty to the charges and then, shortly thereafter, she was committed to a mental hospital and then rehab for the remainder of the year. Well, her case is due back in court tomorrow but the prosecutor has decided that IF Amanda continues her good behavior over the coming months, the whole criminal incident will be completely dismissed.
