  • "Your Daddy Was Drunk and Your Mama Was Lonely" - my first country song [mega-vanity]

    Me, via YouTube ^ | 7/31/14 | Me, as "Hopalong Ginsberg"
    After a great deal of hard work and numerous cuss words I've finally recorded my first song. The song is titled "Your Daddy Was Drunk and Your Mama Was Lonely," and I don't think that I can add much to that. If you like country music, or even if you don't, I'd appreciate if you'd give it a listen and give me your honest opinion. (Yes, I know what I'm in for by saying that, and no, no Butthurt Report Form will be necessary.) A few quick notes: 1) When I registered with ASCAP "Slings and Arrows" was taken, so...

Yes, those of us brave enough to stay up until the small hours of Thursday morning can look forward to a second round of the infamous Syfy/Asylum franchise, as Ian Ziering and Tara Reid return, chainsaws in hand, to kick a spot of shark butt in New York City. This time around they’re joined by actor and comedian Judah Friedlander (who you might recognise as 30 Rock’s Frank Rossitano), who plays Ziering’s childhood friend Bryan – a man he admits...

After getting in each other’s faces—Bloom threw a punch at the pop star—the crowd cheered. Sources told Page Six that Bloom took a swing at Bieber after the singer, 20, made a rude comment about Bloom’s ex, Miranda Kerr. But a source close to Bieber insisted that the comment was only made after Bloom took a swing, and missed.

    American Thinker ^ | 07/30/2014 | Enza Ferreri
    Many young people, especially the anti-social, dislike classical music so much that it can be played to discourage them from intimidating, harassing and robbing.This experiment has been successful over many years in countless locations. The earliest occurrence was in the mid-1980s, when Canadian outlets of 7-Eleven played easy listening and classical music to disperse teenagers loitering outside. After that, companies from McDonald's to Co-op, transport authorities, housing estates and shopping malls around the world have employed this method. In the UK, the first to do so was the Tyne-and-Wear Metro system in 1997, following Montreal’s underground system in Canada. Other...

    A recent report by JP Morgan’s Michael Cembalest provides a fresh look at the problem of state indebtedness. Cembalest, global head of investment strategy, is best known for his writings on housing and for flagging Bernard Madoff’s fund and refusing to invest in it, even while other divisions at JPMorgan gleefully did so. Cembalest looks at state governments’ annual payments towards bonded debt interest and retirement liabilities (defined-benefit and defined-contribution pensions as well as retiree healthcare benefits) expressed as percentage of total annual revenue. In addition to assessing states’ default risk, this approach quantifies exactly how much debt expenditures are...

    I am planning to develop an online music instruction course which I intend to make available online to paying subscribers.

I will not be using videos of myself in the course material. When I first got the idea for this series of lessons, I was thinking in terms of making and selling it as a DVD, but now I think that idea is obsolete. Ideally, a user should only need a laptop or tablet...

    Daily Mail ^ | November 2008 | Richard Price
    The words, familiar to countless millions around the world, are among the most poignant in popular music: 'Eleanor Rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name; nobody came.' Set to a haunting melody by Lennon and McCartney and backed by a string octet masterfully arranged by George Martin, the song broke new ground with its heartrending refrain: 'All the lonely people, where do they all come from?' Its funereal orchestration and bleak message of isolation, depression and desolation were a far cry from the upbeat hits the public had come to expect from The Beatles -...

    Many many epochs past, before claiming its rightful status as the beloved Oscar-winning trilogy known the world over, "The Lord Of The Rings" was planned to be a single movie, directed by John Madden ("Shakespeare In Love," "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel"). Obviously, that didn't come to pass, and Peter Jackson went in the opposite direction. Given a nearly unlimited canvas to paint on, and buoyed by global success, the theatrical cuts of each movie were supplemented by extended footage on home video. And when Jackson returned to helm "The Hobbit" after Guillermo del Toro's exit, it wasn't long until...

    The band was founded in 1964 by John Michalski (lead guitar) and Roy Chaney (bass guitar), two high school friends who had previously played in several short-lived bands. After going by the name The Squires for a short time, along with several line-up changes, the Count Five were born. "Psychotic Reaction", an acknowledged cornerstone of garage rock, was initially devised by John Byrne, with the group refining it and turning it into the highlight of their live sets. The song was said to be influenced by the style of contemporary musicians such as The Standells and The Yardbirds. The band...

    Duran Duran are suing their own fan club for breach of contract, claiming that it did not pay the band its promised revenue. In 2010, the group signed a contract with Worldwide Fan Clubs, Inc., based in a town about 30 minutes outside of Chicago, that guaranteed the band 75 percent of all profits, according to Chicago Sun-Times, while the company kept the rest. Although part of the suit alleges that the company failed to keep precise fan-club records, collect membership fees and keep accurate accounting, Simon Le Bon & Co. claim that the company owes them approximately $40,000 in...

    The massive "Weird Al" Yankovic cult knew it was only a matter of time until the rest of the world joined their ranks, but few people could have foreseen what happened this past week when his new album Mandatory Fun became the first Number One comedy album on the Billboard charts since 1963's My Son, the Nut by Allan Sherman. That was back when JFK was president and few people in America had heard of a new Liverpool band called the Beatles. There were still new episodes of The Twilight Zone on television.

    YouTube pranks seem to be a popular thing for “bored” youth to do, but one video prank of snatching cell phones out of  the hands of unsuspecting targets is met with some hostile responses. Earlier this month, a video series of two brothers trying to swipe strangers’ cellphones surfaced online. What differentiated the shorts from your average YouTube prank was the unsuspecting target: African-Americans in a poor Brooklyn, New York, neighborhood. The videos—which immediately went viral and have drawn more than 1.5 million hits—generated a furious reaction, including death threats aimed at the filmmakers, Moe Etayyim, 20, and Et Etayyim, 21, of...

    Ohio State University fired marching band director Jonathan Waters yesterday after a two-month investigation found that band leaders ignored a “sexualized” culture among students and didn’t take sexual-harassment training as recommended. The firing came two weeks after OSU leaders told Waters he could keep the job if he enacted a zero-tolerance policy for sexual harassment, his attorney, David Axelrod, said yesterday. The firing was a surprise to Waters, Axelrod said. “Jonathan has not decided precisely what action he will take,” Axelrod said. “He intends to defend his good name in one way or another.” Ohio State fired Waters, 38, after...

    On the basis of simply counting heads, rock music surpasses even film as the 20th century's most influential art form. By that reckoning, there is a case for calling Buddy Holly, who died in a plane crash 50 years ago next Tuesday, the century's most influential musician. Holly and Elvis Presley are the two seminal figures of 1950s rock 'n' roll, the place where modern rock culture began. Virtually everything we hear on CD or see on film or the concert stage can be traced back to those twin towering icons – Elvis with his drape jacket and swivelling hips...

    The success of any great piece of art is determined by a few key factors. Does it accomplish what it sets out to achieve? Does it illuminate some essential aspect of the human condition? Does it change those who are exposed to it — rewire the circuitry, add new ideas that disturb the status quo? Does it build on the art of others, in the process crafting something profoundly new? Most important, does it advocate for the enduring relevance of tinfoil? Under these guidelines, Weird Al Yankovic's new "Mandatory Fun" is a stone cold masterpiece. Its goal remains the same...

She sang the song “Pearl of a Girl” that criticizes Islam, Judaism, and Christianity, but most gratuitously proclaims about Jesus “I wish the virgin would’ve had an abortion.” [See video below.
