Don’t Call It A Comeback: 12 Things We’d Like To See Revived

We were ecstatic to learn that Miss Leather and Lace herself, Stevie Nicks, would be coming out with a new record. The new album is due out sometime next spring and is expected to include collaborations with Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and Mick Fleetwood, among others. And, she says, we should watch out for a new Fleetwood Mac record too: “Eventually, there will be another Fleetwood Mac record and another tour,” Nicks told The New York Daily News. “But this record is my moment. All next year, it’s going to be this. This is now my turn.” It’s her groove.

7 Things To Do While Mercury Is In Retrograde

Guys, things are bad — Mercury has been in retrograde since August 20 and our junk is all messed up. The sheer destructive power of Mercury’s seeming backwards motion can throw everything into a tizzy, especially in the communication department.
