Just over a month after the devastating shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, the school’s choir has joined forces with singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson to record a touching version of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.” The song, available for download here, is a touching tribute to the people who lost their lives and the families who grieve them, with proceeds benefiting the Newtown Youth Academy and United Way of Western Connecticut. Check out some behind-the-scenes footage from the recording session in this sweet video. [Rolling Stone]

James Can Be Your Boyfriend, Never Let You Go

Another James Franco “art” project! Here he is with a Justin Bieber wig and cap spoofing the song “Boyfriend” with his “Spring Breakers” costar Ashley Benson …  and some other comeley lass.  Rrrow! It gets a little NSFW towards the end. I don’t remember quite so much butt in the real “Boyfriend” video.

What other songs do you want to see James Franco spoof/cover? I bet he could do a righteous “You Oughta Know.” You … you … you … oughta know!

Dear Roger Tullgren AKA The Guy Who Received Disability Benefits For His Heavy Metal Addiction,

A lot of people claim to lead a heavy metal lifestyle, but as far as I know, you’re the only one who has had three separate psychologists confirm that your obsession with heavy metal is actually a clinical addiction. After you were fired for skipping work to attend metal shows and blasting Black Sabbath all day, you got the Swedish government to help support your lifestyle. How? Well, you described it best: “I signed a form saying: ‘Roger feels compelled to show his heavy metal style. This puts him in a difficult situation on the labor market. Therefore he needs extra financial help.’”

Roger, even though you’re no longer receiving disability benefits, I feel compelled to tell you that I love your heavy metal style. Never change, OK? And if you ever need a date for a hardcore show, I’m pretty sure I have enough black eyeliner for both of us.

XOXO

My Dick’s Double Full-Length Release: 23 spot-on covers of some of the greatest hits of the ‘70s–‘90s, with one twist: key words in the lyrics are replaced with “dick.” I spoke to the two artists behind this opus. Read on.

For much of the mid-2000s I had a side gig playing records. I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a DJ, in that I can’t scratch or really beat match, but some friends and I had a lot of fun DJ-ing a regular weekly party for a while. It was in Philly at a club that flaunted the smoking ban. We usually had a pretty packed house, and there was lots of dancing, usually started by me. This playlist is a ton of the songs that I used to play from that era, so feel free to play it for you own dance parties!
