Fame…

A new documentary about Bowie called “Finding Fame” is out on Showtime. Mrs. Droogie and I stumbled on it the other night. I’m a big David Bowie fan, so I’m a bit biased, but I loved it.  A lot of what’s covered in this happened before my time and when I was just a wee Droog, so it’s nice to hear the story of how he became popular. Dude was ahead of his time for sure. Check out the trailer here…

Some of his really early songs were crap, and then he somehow pulled Space Oddity out of nowhere.

Why Should I Care?

This Kickstarter campaign for an Alex Chilton documentary is a long way from being funded with only eight days to go.

So let’s give till it hurts, you bastards!

This feature length documentary explores the remarkable story of Alex Chilton, whose instant fame with a #1 hit record at age 16 was followed by a long and winding journey through works of neglected genius, darkness and obscurity before he was gradually discovered and rediscovered by fans, fellow musicians and critics. As the influence of his music continued to grow, he became a reluctant cult figure while staying true to his own eclectic and unpredictable muses. His is the story of a true artist – one whose life and career plainly present us with the question: what is the difference between fame and success?

Uh Oh!

As heard on Underground Garage this morning. Good stuff!

The Coolies are a new collaboration between Muffs frontwoman Kim Shattuck, former Friggs guitarist Palmyra Delran and Muffs / White Flag member Melanie Vammen. This supergroup of sorts has released their debut 6 song EP on Wicked Cool Records. Some amazing guest musicians are along for the ride.

Get Stuckmannized

I recently discovered this guy on YouTube. His movie reviews are excellent!

In fact, I can’t argue with a single thing he says in this review of The Phantom Menace. See what you think …
