Could Matthew McConaughey have a challenger for the title of Most Frequently Shirtless Actor In Hollywood?
You'd think that having most of your members jump ship during the recording of an album would be a substantial enough challenge for one band to overcome in the space of a year or so. And though Montreal orchestral rock romantics the Dears endured that setback and emerged with the triumphant Missiles, today brought an even bigger obstacle. Like, the size of a tour bus (or the empty space left behind when one vanishes into thin air).
Those with a penchant for baby-doll dresses, prepare to rock! Representatives from Nettwerk Music Group confirmed yesterday that Lilith Fair, the all-female traveling roadshow founded by Sarah McLachlan back in the mid-90s, will make a triumphant return to stages in 2010.
The British site ClashMusic.com has just turned five, and accordingly, has issued a list devoted to spotlighting the Top 50 albums of the past five years. A Canadian album came out on top.
Japandroids' fuzzy teen dreams, spacey synths from Little Boots and Winnipeg's wonderful Wednesday-night music club: this week's new musical discoveries.
I try to keep an open mind about horror-movie remakes. Really, I do. The Haunting (1999)? Kind of fun, actually. The Fog (2005)? No worse than the original. The Omen (2006)? Sorta scary in places!
Bea Arthur passed away over the weekend at age 86, and I'm feeling totally bereft.
It's been almost two weeks since unlikely star Susan Boyle's audition for Britain's Got Talent first aired in the UK, but the Blackburn, Scotland-based singing sensation is still making noise in the media.
Though I never cared much for Sofia Coppola's work as an actor (The Godfather III = FAIL), she's proved herself to be a fine director with a talent for creating sharp features that are visually sumptuous and unconventionally interesting, if not always entirely successful. It was exciting to imagine what Coppola would come up with as a follow-up to 2006's Marie Antoinette, but now that news of her latest project has hit the airwaves, I'm not so sure I'm sold.
Though it sounded vaguely like a cat being strangled (or maybe Sasha Fierce having a particularly bad hair day), Howard Stern claimed an audio clip he aired earlier this week featured the actual, unpolished board mix of pop superstar Beyonce Knowles singing her hit If I Were A Boy live on the Today Show last November.
