Pearl Jam Celebrates 20 Years

There are a lot of bands I love and a wealth of genres of music on my iPod, but there is one band that will go down in history as my favorite — Pearl Jam. I discovered the band at 12 and it changed my relationship to music forever — two decades, 10 live shows later, and many discarded flannel shirts later, I am still just as moved by their music as I was back then; I’m just better at containing my hysterical shrieks. This week, the band celebrates their 20th anniversary with the release of “Pearl Jam 20,” a documentary film directed by Cameron Crowe which tells the real story of how the band came to be and how they’ve survived this long. (A week-long run in select theaters starting on Friday and the movie will air on TV in October.) In addition to the film, the band has released a double-disc soundtrack filled with rare demos and live performances, as well as a book documenting their 20 years together. If you are a fan, you need both, trust me. Right now, I am singing along to the demo version of “Nothing As It Seems,” while looking at old photos of Jeff Ament and wondering whether he kept all his ugly hats. As Eddie sings in a tune he recently penned for the occasion, I’m so glad they’ve made it “to when it all got good.”

Theory: If The Gleeks Went To College, They’d Rule Their Respective Campuses

As the kids of McKinley High School enjoyed their summer vacations, much ado was made of the fact that—come tonight’s season premiere—Rachel Berry (Lea Michele), Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith) and Kurt Hummel (Emmy nominee Chris Colfer) will be seniors. Meaning that at the end of the season, they’ll graduate. “We didn’t want to have a show where they were in high school for eight years,” creator Ryan Murphy said in June. “We thought it would be really cool if we were true to the timeline.”

Murphy explained that he didn’t want to use the television trickery most high school shows employ to solve this problem—make all your main characters magically land at the same college, a la “Beverly Hills, 90210″ or “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” Keep reading »

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: “Dancing With The Stars,” Take One

I won’t lie to you guys. I can’t watch “Dancing with the Stars” all the way through—it’s just so much filler. But that said, I do like to record it and fast forward to the performances. I have to say that last night, I was pretty impressed by the crew’s first efforts—from Chynna Phillip’s “I Dream of Jeannie” get-up to Chaz Bono’s gleeful smile as he danced. After the jump, the best, the worst, and most WTF performances of the night. Keep reading »

Courteney Cox And David Arquette Creating A Show About Their Relationship

Courteney Cox and David Arquette may have separated, but they sure seem to spend a lot of time together. Apparently, they are in the midst of creating a show together via their joint company, Coquette Productions. The show is called “10 Years” and is a sitcom that will explore “the ups and downs of relationships across a group of friends, spanning 10 years.” And two of the characters on the show will be loosely based on Courteney and David, who for the record were married for 11 years. Courteney would be a producer on the series while David could potentially star in it, too. Sure, this seems like a hard project for exes to do together—inevitably it will mean poking a bit of fun at each other, and being brutally honest about the negatives in their relationship—but I kind of like that these two would sign on for that undertaking together. What do you think? Would you watch this show? [TV Line] Keep reading »

Luckily, it is my full-time job. So after the jump, your cheat sheet to the TV shows you need to watch, the albums you need to hear, the movies you need to see, and much, much more this week.

David Beckham Puts On Disguise, Peddles Cologne At Target


Man, I love it when Ellen DeGeneres plays prank Cyrano de Bergerac and has celebrities do something outrageous to unsuspecting bystanders while she counsels them on what to say via earpiece. In this clip, David Beckham heads to Target undercover to peddle his new cologne. She has him spray it on his leg so a woman can smell it and then has him yell “Howdy partner!” as loud as possible. But the best part is how he keeps slightly misunderstanding her. “If you stink, come and buy cologne” is a great jingle, though. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
