    Tanner Patrick has two first names and looks like he fell out of an American Apparel catalog, so I’m sure a lot of you will want to hate him even before you sample the first pillowy strains of his new single, “Satellites.” But if you can move past your prejudices against artfully scruffy white dudes with perfect hair, you might appreciate how comfily Patrick snugs into the gap between shiny pop songsmiths like Andrew McMahon and Adam Young — and once you’ve listened to “Satellites” a time or three, you might find its adorably insistent chorus bouncing…

    Long-time Hulk actor/voice artist Lou Ferrigno has confirmed that he'll be back to voice the green giant again in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

    Waiting for the next Damnwells record is always painful — especially when you know it’s so very close at hand — but this time around, lead singer/songwriter Alex Dezen has been kind enough to further whet our appetites for new tunes with a batch of EPs. Christened the Bedhead Series, Dezen’s latest project continues this week with the release of the descriptively titled 2/4, out now via Bandcamp. 2/4 contains three songs, including the moody seven-minute epic “Other People’s Drugs” (embedded below), “Not So Bad,” and “The Ballad of…

    It sucks getting older and realizing you’re probably never going to have that big house and fancy car you dreamed about as a possession-obsessed tween, but when you have a great relationship and a few synths to soothe the pain, anything is possible. Just ask Miniature Tigers, whose new single “Oblivious” offers additional proof that you can effectively smother ennui under a catchy chorus and some cascading keyboard lines (the more, the better). It doesn’t hurt if you can throw in some drums that sound like 1987 while you’re at it. Stream “Oblivious”…

  • MINI-ALBUM REVIEW: Broken Gold, “Residency At Hundo Beach”

    23 Apr 2014 | 7:30 am
    This six-song mini-album comes courtesy of Austin’s Broken Gold, which is the brainchild of Ian MacDougall, who is both the frontman and main writer.  There’s a very warm and lush sense of controlled chaos in these songs; as if My Bloody Valentine had been given the proper restraint and allowed the melodies to not be overwhelmed by the noise.  Here, the noise is not a distraction but an enhancement. Opening track “Teeth” has (and this is the word of the day) melody, structure and a sense of completeness.  “Dirty Vodka” reminds me of something Sugar may…

    Today women take an active part in public life. Without a doubt, they also converse with other women. In fact, they even talk to each other about other things besides men.

The study, involving a survey of 1,400 adult men and women, found that immediately after Jobs' death, more than a third of survey participants sought information about how he died or about cancer in general, and 7 percent sought information about pancreatic cancer, the disease that took Jobs' life.
  • People selectively remember details of atrocities that absolve in-group members

    Conversations about wartime atrocities often omit certain details. According to research, these omissions can lead people to have different memories for the event depending on social group membership. "What we learn from this research is that moral disengagement strategies are fundamentally altering our memories," explains an author. "More specifically, these strategies affect the degree to which our memories are influenced by the conversations we have with one another."

    View Photo Gallery Movie sets are emotionally-charged situations. First of all, film directors are notoriously a snippy sort. They have a very specific vision, and — under the pressure of deadlines and budgets — they’re charged with inspiring an entire crew and cast of actors to carry it out. We’d probably be jerks, too. And on the other side of things, there are the actors — most of whom are sensitive, narcissistic creative types who need a bit of ego-stroking to produce their greatest work. And sometimes, when those two personalities come together, all hell…

    It looks like it's going to be another tea party vs establishment battle in a Minnesota Republican primary. This time, businessman Mike McFadden is getting the support of the establishment and has been deemed the "electable" candidate by many party insiders. This is based, I guess, on his ability to raise money, which he has done. It isn't based on his ability to get Republican grassroots excited as he has not really run a campaign for them. McFadden could be a great conservative, but he has never run for political office and few really know anything about him. What does he really believe?

    Jason Morehead
    22 Apr 2014 | 10:23 pm
    By all accounts, the most recent episode of Game of Thrones was quite the stomach-churner, which is saying something considering that HBO’s series has never shied away from the sex and violence in George R.R. Martin’s epic fantasy novels. But it seems the series might have crossed a line in “Breaker of Chains,” when Jaime Lannister rapes his lover and twin sister Cersei beside the corpse of their son, the recently poisoned Joffrey. Rape is nothing new in Martin’s stories. It, along with many other forms of wickedness, occurs in Martin’s novels as…

Under this definition, fetuses and newborns are not actual persons (only potential) because they’re not yet capable of doing such things… or so we thought.” Related: When the infamous “after-birth abortion” paper…

The most recent is “Good Shepherd,” which finds David Eugene Edwards and Co. in full on thrash mode, with distorted guitars and pummeling drums a-plenty; the song is one of the heaviest things the band has recorded in a long time.

But actual new songs have been few and far between — at least for those of us who haven’t been fortunate enough to see the band live yet — so it’s nice to hear something new. “Disappear” features a new line-up and it’s a bit less folksy than their previous material, even bordering a bit on pop. But in the ways that count, this…

  • While Folks Talked About Reality Star Sex Tapes – Rappers Were Giving Back

    Ms. Scripter
    18 Apr 2014 | 6:30 am
    This week, the majority of the conversation on social media was about reality stars Mimi Faust and Nikko Smith of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta leaking their own sex tape. What also transpired was the exodus of shower rods that were flying off the shelves at a Home Depot near you, based off of the actions of these same reality stars. With that being said, there were many things to talk about this week instead of talentless, tacky, and overexposed reality stars. I can never understand how fellow bloggers, journalist and the overall media can spend time covering these folks. What is there to talk…
  • The Image of the NYPD Cop That Made Me Smile

    Ms. Scripter
    13 Apr 2014 | 9:00 pm
    I am notorious for writing about the NYPD in a bad light. I have constantly been against stop-and-frisk and other tactics that are used mostly against the Black and Latinos in the community. I have witnessed the way they interact with us, which has caused the majority of distrust in those same communities. The NYPD’s image under the Bloomberg and Commissioner Ray Kelly era for the past 12 years created that distrust. I was always an advocate for community policing and engaging with the youth in a non-confrontational way, but, unfortunately that was not the way previous regimes felt the need…
  • Chris Brown Has To Realize, The Standards Are Different When You Black

    Ms. Scripter
    7 Apr 2014 | 6:00 am
    OPINION – I remember when R&B and sometimes rapper (depending on whom you ask) Chris Brown came onto the scene with the boy next door persona, captivating hearts and ears. Brown’s boyish good looks was the icing on the cake to pull off the Double Mint gum ads, the movie roles and music that wasn’t raunchy, but was flat out fun and safe at the time.  Chris Brown had the very same element as his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, but we all know both of these entertainer’s personalities took on entirely different attributes as the years and the pressure of their record labels went by. We are…
  • Truth Should Never Hurt

    Antonio Daniels
    2 Apr 2014 | 6:00 am
    We live a world where far too many people do not embrace truth.  Many people love to run from truth and make excuses about it.  When you fail to face truth candidly, directly and willingly, you will find yourself living a life saturated with problems.  Most of those problems are self-imposed.  One of the fundamental reasons why people feel that truth hurts is it does not change. You should not let it hurt you, however. When you present someone with truth, it will not change simply because he or she is your friend or family member; truth is truth—no matter who does not like or agree with…

I was asked to style up an outfit using one of the key SS14 trends, I was given embellishment and to style it for day. I’m pretty partial to the odd sequin or glitter especially during the day so was excited to put something together! I think the key thing to work embellishment for day is not to go too overboard, so I started off by choosing a pair of boyfriend jeans with ankle embellishments, the pearls and gemstones give the denims a little something extra without going OTT.

    Have you always dreamed of being a reality TV star? If you’re like me, idle hours of watching guilty pleasure television has probably led to an unhealthy daydream. Watching strangers date, fight, and compete on the myriad of reality shows on television today, I can’t help but wonder what I would do if I were on a reality show.

Mark Wahlberg‘s acceptance speech Mark Wahlberg won the Generations Award last night, because apparently all of MTV’s viewers are 12 years old and think that Marky Mark is old. Whatever. He spent the majority of his speech dropping f-bombs, and it was pretty hilarious. 2. The opening montage Conan was a great choice to host, because he has no shame, mostly.

    I’m not sure how exactly Pantone was granted the gift of naming the color of the year, but they do a great job. Maybe I am the only one who eagerly awaits the unveiling of the new year’s color, but even if you’re not a fan, there are plenty of reasons to get Radiant Orchid into your decor. The color goes well with a number of pallets, and the vivid bright (without being overbearing) color is sure to inject some happiness into your life. 1.

    William Fitzsimmons’ record LionsMy introduction to William Fitzsimmons was in hearing a song from Lions. It doesn’t matter which song it was because almost every track on the record would have had the same effect on me. Each song has the capability to stop me on the spot, drop what I’m doing and listen to the guitar plucking, ambience and crooning of William’s soft-sung vocals. It’s difficult for an album of guitar-folk to stand out amongst the abundance of guitar-folk records that come out every year, especially when it’s an artist previously unbeknownst…

    I’ve never watched the show but I’ve heard a lot about the disappointing ending of How I Met Your Mother. Judging by the overwhelmingly negative reaction, it seems like it was the most disappointing series finale since Seinfeld, another show I didn’t watch. That response got me thinking about what makes a good ending to a long-running series, whether television, book or movie, and how rewarding a good ending can be – and how easy it is for it to go terribly wrong.

He’s non-threatening, unassuming, and otherwise doesn’t really stand out. In his most prominent role of Michael Bluth on Arrested Development, he was an overprotecting helicopter dad, a 2000s Danny Tanner, who just blended in against the more interesting characters around him. In Bad Words, his directorial debut, Bateman attempts to be the centre of attention by being a man with a mission, and a foul mouth. He plays Guy Trilby, a 40-year-old who uses a…

  • Six things about Lady Gaga at the closing the Roseland Ballroom

    themaxonline
    8 Apr 2014 | 11:11 am
    Lady Gaga performed seven shows as part of the closing of New York City’s iconic Roseland Ballroom. The venue, originally opened in 1917, sat in its current home on West 52nd until it closed its doors for the final time last night. Gaga was selected to be the final performer for the venue likely because she has been outspoken about her ties to New York since breaking out in 2008. I was lucky enough to attend one of the shows (April 4) where I got to see Gaga pretty up close, especially in comparison to previous times I saw her. These are six things of note about the shows: 1.

    It’s been confirmed that Brit singer Lily Allen’s third album is definitely titled “Sheezus,” and what’s better is that she used the albums title track to diss everyone from Queen B to Lady Gaga. The chorus is really where Allen starts her attack, with lines like, “Ri-ri isn’t scared of Katy Perry’s roaring/Queen B’s gone back to the drawing, “ and “We’re all watching Gaga lol and ahaha/Dying for the art so really she’s a martyr.” In laughing at Gaga as she dies for her art, Allen’s seemingly soft jabs could actually be taken quite offensively, and what surprises…

Earth Day first began in 1970, when 20 million US residents took a break from whatever it was they were up to in the early ’70s to become all eco-conscious and fight for the protection of the environment. Prior to this, the state of the environment had been a veritable non-issue where politics had been concerned, but after US Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin recruited activist Denis…

For example, at the end of one chapter towards the middle of the book, we are told about an eccentric, to put it mildly, American couple living in rural France who live an isolated life pretending they are in the nineteenth century. They dress in the style of the time and fill their house with antiques and life-size dolls in the appropriate costumes. This chapter ends with a comment…

Eminem took a step back from releasing records on the same prolific basis he had been – in fact, Eminem released no original material for several years following 2006 – and 50 Cent’s popularity began to wane. Where neither of his first two records on the label had sold less than 5 million copies, 50′s third album, 2007′s Curtis, has still only sold slightly over a million copies.

But, as a book entitled The Art of Ian Miller, this volume is a major disappointment as well. This is the kind of art I love to stare at. It’s art that makes me wish I had some talent to draw. Each section, covering everything from dragons, to “Maelstrom,” to Tolkien, to the artist’s personal favorite topic, Mervyn Peake’s Gormenghast Trilogy, leaves me in awe of Mr. Miller’s talent, imagination, and vision.
