Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Wale To Echo & The Bunnymen

This week, I’ve got some sad news, people. Gerhardt Fuchs, the drummer from Maserati and !!! (pronounced chk-chk-chk) — aka my favorite band — died tragically over the weekend. It was a horrible elevator shaft accident; you can read all the gory deets of how his attendance at a fundraiser went horrible awry. We join the long list of music lovers who would like to send their condolences. Fuchs was a beat maker and a very talented guy who was too young to die. (34!) Tear.

But it’s new release Tuesday, and new jams always make us feel better. So let’s take the latest tunes for a spin, shall we? This week it’s all about newcomer Wale hip-hopping his way into our hearts, legends Echo & The Bunnymen giving us classic cuts, folk singer Pieta Brown putting out her first EP, and Switchfoot and Flyleaf keeping alternative rock rockin’ on. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump! Keep reading »

Do “Twilight” Fans Get Flak Because They’re (Mostly) Girls?

Another day, another Twilight headline. Today, Prospect.org has an interesting article in which writer Sady Doyle (who defended Megan Fox on The Frisky) points out how books in Stephenie Meyer‘s Twilight series are a smash hit (Breaking Dawn, for example, sold 1.3 million copies on its first day), but they get a hell of a lot of flak from … well, everybody.

Matthew Weiner’s Feelings About The Draper Marriage Are “Unambiguous”

There’s a fascinating interview with “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner over at The Daily Beast. He has some insightful things to say about the season finale of “Mad Men” and where things stand with the Drapers. (If you still haven’t watched Sunday night’s episode: a.) What are you waiting for? b.) Stop reading NOW!). Keep reading »

Your New Online Coffee Table

In the past few months, we’ve seen more magazines disappear then we’d like to remember. But among the remains of glossy pages, a few bright hopes remain. Lonny, which is basically an online version of Domino, has launched. And now we have a brand-new site to troll for magazine content. Maggwire is kind of like the magazine version of Surf The Channel, linking to online hosting sites instead of serving up original content, in order to stray from publisher issues and legal trials. The site garners content from magazines, displaying summaries, ratings, and comments, but links to the actual articles on the publishers’ websites. You can use it as your RSS of magazines, sort of like a virtual coffee table, but without all the clutter. [Lifehacker] Keep reading »

Bad Ideas: An Omarosa Dating Show, Ashlee On Broadway, And Eminem In 3D

Wow. The entertainmentverse (yes, that’s a word) has sure come up with some pretty terrible ideas today. First, Variety broke the story that Donald Trump is producing a show called “Omarosa’s Ultimate Merger.” On it, everyone’s favorite reality TV villainess will be looking for love with one of 12 dudes who are competing for her affection. Good luck casting those 12 men, Donald. All I’m sayin’ is—if ABC had trouble finding guys who really, truly wanted to date adorable, sweet, funny Gillian, I can hardly see them lining up for Omarosa. Also just in from the bad idea department: People is reporting that Ashlee Simpson will be starring as Roxie Hart, the lead in the musical “Chicago,” on Broadway. Did they not get the memo that Ashlee just got evicted from “Melrose Place” because of her terrible acting? And don’t they remember the “SNL” Lip Sync Incident of 2004? Oh, but it gets worse. Eminem will be starring in a horror flick. That’s 3D! Expect “Shady Talez”—yes, that’s what it’s called, because nothing will make you feel hardcorez like wearing 3D glasses—in theaters soon.

Hilary Duff Is The Highlight Of “Gossip Girl”‘s Threesome


So the “Gossip Girl” threesome finally happened and, lemme tell ya, the triple kiss makeout sesh I had freshman year of college was more climactic.

The only reason, really, to click on that play button is to see Lizzie McGuire french a chick, seriously. Keep reading »
