Dave Franco is still alive, talks about working with Zac Efron

Despite Scrubs being canceled, I still stand by my statement that Dave Franco is awesome and will prove himself to be a great comedic actor.  And even though I was totally resiliant in my efforts to NOT get Scrubs canceled apparently America has other priorities.  Whatever.  Eff all yall.

But luckily Davie’s still getting work and his next appearance will be on the big screen with Zac Efron (playing his best friend) in “Charlie St. Cloud.”  I’m kind of worried about St. Cloud in general because it seems almost cloyingly cute but I’m hoping for the best and I’m sure Dave will be one of the more memorable aspects of it…  The movie opens next month and will be a major test for Efron on whether he can continue to transition smoothly into adult roles.  In the meantime, Dave spoke with Access Hollywood about the experience of working with Zac in a brief clip that can be seen after the jump!  Continue reading

Jenny Lewis and Jonathan Rice Debut New Single and Tour Dates!

https://i1.wp.com/cdn.pitchfork.com/media/Jenny_and_Johnny.jpg

It’s a fabulous day to be me because Jenny Lewis has released a new song with her boyfriend Jonathan Rice called “Scissor Runner” AND they’ve announced a tour together which means I WILL GET TO SEE HER LIVE! I’m pretty freakin excited as I’m a huuuuuuuge fan of Jenny and I’m really hoping she plays some songs from Rabbit Fur Coat during the set.  Anyway, “Scissor Runner” is available for a free download at their site if you sign up for their newsletter and you also have the option to buy their new album, released later this summer, in a number of packages.  The song definitely has some Fleetwood Mac undertones and is one you can’t listen to just once.   Tour dates after the cut!

Neko Case Will F*ck You Up

https://i1.wp.com/www.aquariumdrunkard.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/02/neko-case.jpg

I’m seeing the New Pornographers Sunday night and it makes me almost giddy with excitement to know that Neko Case hasn’t lost her fire and is unafraid to threaten to fight every person in a show’s audience.

Because that’s exactly what she did at Boston’s House of Blues last week.  After a fan threw a CD directly at Pornographers frontman Carl Newman, Case was quick to remind the crowd that she’s “a piece of sh*t white trash” and then proceeded to declare war on whoever the culprit was.  Via AV Club:

Case showed her polemic punk-rock roots when she chided the audience, “I will go to jail—I don’t give a shit. I will fuck you up. I will fight every single fucking person in this room. Seriously, don’t pull that shit again.” The CD remained unharmed. “It’s still good,” Case said, “we can re-sell that.” (Hat tip, @riotactmedia)

Video of the threatening can be seen after the cut.   Continue reading

Justin Bieber Kicks Off My World Tour

Last night Justin Bieber kicked off his My World tour in Hartford, CT and if you can hear him above the SHRIEKING girls, he sounded really good and seemed to do really well.

I have to question the artistic taste of whoever had the briliant idea of sending him up in a metal heart to play an acoustic set but what the eff, that was the video I could barely hear anything in so I guess fifteen year old girls hit puberty during that set.

If you’d like to see more of the videos from the tour, then please click click click away! Anyone else going to see him this summer?

Gaga Wears Stupid Shoes, Falls. Laughter Ensues.

While I enjoy Lady Gaga’s music, I will be the first to admit that she is a complete famewhore and has been getting consistently more and more stuck up this year when discussing her “art.”  I will also admit that sometimes she doesn’t know when to tone down the crazy outfits, and until now they’ve never backfired on her.

SO I couldn’t hold back the laughter when I saw these epic pictures of Gaga falling face first at the airport while wearing some ridiculously high platform boots and then acting like she has no idea what happened.

Come inside for the pictures…. Also, am I the only one who thinks she looks like Marilyn Manson with the short hair?

Twilight Fans Continue To Embarrass Themselves



Every once in a while I will see irate comments from Twilight fans asking why bloggers continually make fun of them and call them freaks.

WELL, I give you exhibit A.  This crazy chick thought it would be cute and totally normal to write that her cat died and she wanted Peter Fascinelli to comfort her.  This woman has also been camping out ALL WEEK in order to see the stars of this movie and this will probably be the highlight of her life.

I just have no words.  I guess in about an hour Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will be genuinely fearing for life when they come in contact with these people, but in the meantime enjoy more  pictures of Twihards camped out at the premiere where Fascinelli, Jackson Rathbone, Billy Burke, and Julia Jones visited them.

Who Will Be The Legendary Artists 20 Years From Now?

Last night I was watching Behind the Music: Courtney Love (which was amazing, let me tell you) and I was so taken aback by how RAW she was performing in the nineties that it floored me. I know her tour manager called it a disaster whenever she would open her mouth on stage, but those performances have come to be nothing short of legendary in the past fifteen years.

I’m FINALLY, after almost four long years of unwavering support, getting to see Courtney live a week from today, and while I’m about to die waiting in antcipation, I can only imagine what it would have been like to see Love in her prime.  Yes, she’s clean and sober now and is still putting on a great show, but who doesn’t love Love when she’s stage diving and telling audience members to “get up on stage so I can kick your butt”?  Which got me thinking, which artists of my generation will be the ones that twenty years from now everyone will say, “I would have KILLED to see them in their prime”?

Read on for my possible predictions, and please add yours in the comments! Continue reading

Lady Gaga Covers Rolling Stone Nude… Again



Here’s your first look at Rolling Stone’s new issue with Lady Gaga on the cover, and personally, I believe this could become the iconic image for Gaga.  It’s worlds better than her last cover (with the bubbles)  and everything about it screams controversy (which there has already been a ton of).  The whole image strikes me as very Bowie/androgynous and I like that there’s just a plain white background which directs your attention straight at Gaga.  It’s very simple but really hard at the same time.

The issue supposedly hits newsstands tomorrow although I’m subscribed to Rolling Stone and haven’t received mine yet, so we’ll see…

Let me know what you think about the cover in the comments!

Wavves Signs Deal With Mountain Dew’s Record Label

In a bit of surprising news, much-hyped indie act Wavves–aka Nathan Williams–has signed with Mountain Dew’s record label Green Label.  The label will release Wavves first single off the new album (due August 3rd) next Wednesday June 9.  The album is already pretty highly anticipated and Williams has already made it clear that he is going for a different sound with this one which should be interesting.  When speaking about his move to Green Label, Williams had this to say:

“First off and foremost it’s a chance to give away free music. ‘’ was written and recorded as a true pop song to me and in doing so I knew that I would want it to be heard on as wide a scale as possible. is helping us to do that.”

It will be interesting to see if this garners any new fans for  Williams and if this helps get his name out there more.  I saw him back in April and he performed  a really solid set which is what got me into Wavves in the first place–nothing like the well documented meltdown last year.  I was impressed, and he’s actually a really nice guy.  Me and some friends hung out backstage after the show and he was very down to earth–although he was also pretty drunk–but if anything I just saw him as a talented guy still coming to grips with touring and all of the attention he’s been getting.  But hey, he and his band gave us free pizza so I have nothing bad to say about the kid.

Amy Winehouse Kisses a Girl Fan; Remains a Mess While Doing So

Sigh, Amy Winehouse makes it so hard for me to love her.  Just two days ago I saw pictures of her looking beautiful and glowing on E! News and then today I find this monstrosity.  Amy began her night at the Jazz After Dark club where she performed (?) a short set and then downed a few drinks before leaving around 3:30.
Once outside Amy decided to spread the love and wound up making out with a random fan–who also happened to be a girl–before moving on to her next victim–a man standing next to the girl.
Amy kind of reminds me of this girl, Natalie, that I saw at the Wavves show I went to back in April who thought it would be an amazing idea to grind up on every little thing or person in the club and then run around the floor screaming with her hands above her head.  All anyone could do was just stop and stare while trying not to laugh.  It was all very terrifying, and at the same time completely entrancing too.  She was even more exciting backstage when she attacked Nathan Williams.  But that’s a whole other story!  Anyway, click click click away for more pics from Amy’s night of hell!!!
