I'll try and get more of these out on a more regular basis. Lots of good articles and blog posts out there. Here we go...
Over at AICN my fellow Springsteen fan Capone interviews The Wrestler director Darren Aronofsky, link can be found here.
The official Counting Crows message board talks some smack about me at this link. It is in regards for me putting the Counting Crows on my most disappointing list at this link. This was my favorite quote:The problem with the internet is any asshole with a computer is now a "critic". There's a reason he writes for the Screen Door and not Rolling Stone.
For the record, you couldn't pay me to write for Rolling Stone in its current incarnation.
Being a Neil Young fan sucks big time according to this link. His long overdue (we're talking decades) box set has been delayed again! Man, talk about pissing your fans off. Maybe he should give up converting his classic cars to hybrids for a few weeks and finally get this collection ready for release.
Shotgun Stories is now on DVD, rent it! A gem of small town family wars where the scars of parenting reach down to generations and shape, form and change every one's lives...and not for the better. Read Roger Ebert's review here.
You probably don't recognize the name of Kim Manners and it's a shame you don't. In a week where the world is obsessed with Jessica Simpson's mom jeans, a talented director died. He directed over 50 hours of X-Files episodes. The series wouldn't have been the same without Manners. AICN and Yahoo News have written articles here and here.
Popdose has a great new column, Death By Power Ballad and they feature Stryper's "Honestly". I gotta get me some Stryper to renew my Catholic faith!
IckMusic is giving away the spectacular new Who Live At Kilburn 2 dvd set at this link.
