Music, All Shook Down Five Singers Who Will Perform for Anyone If the Price Is Right

Five Singers Who Will Perform for Anyone If the Price Is Right

In 1964, the Beatles gleefully declared: "I don't care too much for money/ Money can't buy me love." Wise words. But — it has to be noted — money sure can buy an awful lot of other things: private jets,…

Five Olympics Theme Songs That Are Especially Terrible (Because Most Are Fairly Terrible)

Originally, we were going to do this list as a top five. But then it became apparent that Olympic theme songs are always so incredibly awful, it becomes difficult to figure out who did the worst job. When we started…

The Tupac Hologram Is Terrifying and Distasteful. Let's Stop This Madness Now.

On Sunday, April 15, 2012, the world officially entered science fiction-land. Sure, iPods are pretty futuristic, GPS is spy magic from space, and we all have stupidly intelligent phones now, but nothing has felt quite as much like living in…

Well, dear readers, I had intended to write about the Oscars for this posting, but did anyone else watch and have a total snore of a time? I mean seriously, you know it's a total snoozefest when you find yourself…

Avatar: All that glitters isn't gold

The money is on the screen in Avatar, James Cameron's mega-3-D, mondo-CGI, more-than-a-quarter-billion-dollar baby, and, like the Hope Diamond waved in front of your nose, the bling is almost blinding. For the first 45 minutes, I'm thinking: Metropolis! — and…

Cherie

I like France. But listening to Marseille-born Cherie's soulless self-titled record has put me in the mood to start renaming certain combo items. This chanteuse's much-hyped debut starts out with a Foreigner sample for chrissakes, and goes quickly downhill from…

Elliott Smith R.I.P.

One of the stranger moments in Oscar history -- especially for indie rockers who might have caught the telecast back in 1998 -- was seeing the woebegone singer/songwriter Elliott Smith alone on a giant stage, dressed in a gleaming white…
