whatcha doin uptown?
All Things Must Pass
I’m only about a third of the way through but I’m digging it so far. Man, I miss record stores …
Everyone thinks they know what killed Tower Records: The Internet. But that’s not the story. “All Things Must Pass” examines this iconic company’s explosive trajectory, tragic demise, and legacy forged by its rebellious founder Russ Solomon.
Cult horror director Stuart Gordon, dead at 72.
Hopefully, he won’t be RE-ANIMATED.
I used to like Mitch Hedberg. I still do, but I used to, too…
I’m told this is his last appearance on tv. I was released a few days ago. It might not be, but it bears repeating…
Can This Possibly Be Any Good?
I’m cautiously optimistic, but the showrunners have a pretty uneven track record.
Available to stream on Netflix starting tomorrow.
UPDATE: Also, this billboard may be the coolest thing I’ve ever seen.
What I’m Not Watching
I think these are all different shows, but who has time to figure it out?
Late Night With Thom Yorke
I’m not sure what you bastards think about electronic music, but since Thom Yorke made it, I’ll at least give it a try. I’ve been pretty hooked on his solo album that came out a few months ago, but wasn’t sure how the songs would sound when performed live. Apparently, pretty good. Jimmy Kimmel comes on past my bedtime, so thank goodness for the You Tube which will allow us to witness this late night mini concert. Enjoy. Or don’t.
So what’s your take? Good? Bad? Meh?
Ready Or Not?
This looks fun! Careful, this is the red band trailer.
READY OR NOT follows a young bride (Samara Weaving) as she joins her new husband’s (Mark O’Brien) rich, eccentric family (Adam Brody, Henry Czerny, Andie MacDowell) in a time-honored tradition that turns into a lethal game with everyone fighting for their survival.
Rich F*ckers Do Something Nice For Once
Mick and Keef gave Richard Ashcroft back the rights to Bitter Sweet Symphony. Which is nice, because they could probably use the money. Story from Dickfork here.
