I am a huge music fan, though I have noticed that I tend to get somewhat set in my ways, which makes it hard for me to discover new music. That’s why I am thankful for NPR offering the opportunity to download–FREE–100 mp3’s from artists that are headlining at this year’s SXSW Music Festival in […]
Some are also calling “Skyfall” the best Bond ever. I assume that that’s more than a little bit of hyperbole because some of the 007 films that I enjoyed most were not necessarily the best in the series. For instance, of the Sean Connery Bond films, was never a huge fan of “Dr. No,” “From […]
A few days ago I posted that The Fixx had released their first studio album, “Beautiful Friction,” in almost a decade, and it definitely worth the wait. It’s different than anything they produced before, and is interesting and thought-provoking in the way that The Fixx has always been. I purchased my copy from eMusic, and […]
The latest album from The Fixx, Beautiful Friction, is their first studio album in nine years, and it’s good to hear that they’re back in fine form, though with a caveat: This is not your father’s Fixx because this is some of the most guitar-heavy music to ever come from the band. The album was […]

Now that MGM (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer) is on more or less stable ground (after filing for bankruptcy in the latter part of 2010) the studio appears to be preparing the next outing of James Bond. For the moment the new film is known as James Bond 23 (the ’23’ representing the 23rd film in the series).
Film director Antoine Fuqua (Training Daddy, Brooklyn’s Finest) launched an online casting call a couple of months ago in an attempt to find an unknown (but compelling) actor to play the late, great, Tupac Amaru Shakur. According to CNN, in order to audition, aspiring actors should visit InSearchOfTupac.skeetv.com and upload a five-minute video of themselves […]
