“From The Back Of The Room”: New Documentary On Women In Punk Music

It’s been a kickass couple of years for women in music alternative scenes. Last year two books that dealt heavily with the Riot Grrl movement were published — Girls To The Front by Sara Marcus and Girl Power: The ’90s Revolution In Music by Marisa Meltzer — and a tour documentary about the band Le Tigre called “Who Took The Bomp? Le Tigre On Tour” debuted this spring. And there’s more kickass-ness where that came from, ladies and gents! Check out “From The Back Of The Room,” a new documentary about women in the DIY punk scene which is currently doing screenings up and down the East Coast. The punk scene is super-embracing of people who want an alternative from mainstream culture. Yet the scene is not always the sexism- and racism-free haven you think it is going to be, says one woman in the film. I would love to see a screening of “From The Back Of The Room,” especially since Kathleen Hanna from Bikini Kill and Le Tigre appears in it. [Pitchfork] Keep reading »

Adele And Kanye Remix “Melt My Heart To Stone”

Adele‘s “Melt My Heart To Stone” is one of those breakup songs that just tugs at your heartstrings. But the new Kanye West remix really takes the edge off. It’s not as good as his Katy Perry remix of “E.T.,” probably because there’s no lyrics like “Imma disrobe ya, then Imma probe ya.” Keep up the remixes of female pop stars, Kanye! Maybe one day we’ll get a Taylor Swift collab out of you. [DesiHits] Keep reading »

Jason Sudeikis Wants To Have An Orgy

 

Straight off the hype for “Horrible Bosses,” the trailer for Jason Sudeikis‘ new movie has hit the interwebs. The flick is called “Good Old Fashioned Orgy” and it looks about as promising as the title. The truly lame premise: when a man’s father decides to sell the summer house he lives and throws oodles of parties in, he decides to have one last hurrah—an orgy. While I appreciate Jason’s mullet in the preview, I shall be skipping this one. Will you? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

The Daily Ovulation: Irreverant Child Covers Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab”

 

There’s nothing more endearing than children singing songs they don’t understand. Best Week Ever rounded up videos of kids singing highly inappropriate tunes. My favorite was young Ava belting out her rendition of “Rehab” by Amy Winehouse. Let’s hope Ava doesn’t follow in Amy’s footsteps, but for now, she’s rad. I hope if I ever have a child, he or she is this irreverent. Other favorites included Penelope’s version of “Bad Romance” and two brothers covering NIN’s “Head Like a Hole” during bath time.

Do Not Want: The Return Of “Beavis And Butthead” And “120 Minutes”

Now in most ways, I am thrilled to see the ’90s come back. I loved that, last year, both The Pixies and Pavement were on tour. I’m excited about rewatching both “Clarissa Explains It All” and “Hey Dude.” I watch the original “Beverly Hills, 90210” on SoapNet most afternoons, and get secretly excited when I see girls in babydoll dresses and/or Doc Martens on the street. But, unfortunately, MTV is trying to bring back back the things I don’t miss about the decade. Prime example: “Beavis and Butthead.” I thought this show was funny for approximately two episodes, and then even though I found it uber-grating, I had to endure another year of every guy at school doing “Cornholio” impressions in the hallway. Still yesterday, the show’s creator Matt Judge appeared at Comic-Con to talk about the reboot of the show, which will begin airing on MTV in October. Judging from the clip above that premiered yesterday, it’s just as obnoxious as I remember.

Slightly less offensive—MTV2 is bringing back “120 Minutes” starting July 30. Keep reading »

Neil Patrick Harris To Get A Show On The Oprah Winfrey Network?

If what I am about to tell you is actually true, I have far higher hopes for the Oprah Winfrey Network than I did 10 minutes ago. According to the National Enquirer, the amazing Neil Patrick Harris and the Big O are discussing him getting his own talk show on the network. “After their initial conversation, Oprah was intrigued enough to set up two follow-up brainstorming meetings on Skype with Neil,” an insider squealed. “Oprah is mentoring Neil while also trying to bolster her own brand.”

Let me count the ways that I LOVE this idea. Keep reading »
