George Harrison reissued on vinyl

Who’s George Harrison? What’s vinyl?

If you pondered either of those questions for even a milisecond, please feel free to stop reading now.

However, if you’re a Beatles fan looking to add some new-old vinyl to your collection while everyone else is just now buying their albums on iTunes (don’t get me started!), read on.

On Nov. 29, better known as Black Friday, George Harrison’s “All Things Must Pass” vinyl set received a limited edition release in the form of 3 LPs to honor its original release 40 years ago. According to Harrison’s official site, the album was remastered at Abbey Road Studios.

“All Things Must Pass” features songs like “My Sweet Lord,” “Wah-Wah” and “Isn’t It a Pity.” Harrison’s debut solo album was originally released in 1970.


Three reasons why I like Lady Gaga

  1. She’s not afraid to be herself, a.k.a. weird as heck.
  2. Even if you say you aren’t a fan, don’t even pretend like you haven’t had at least one of her songs stuck in your head at one point in your life. They’re catchy. Rah-rah-ah-ah-ah!
  3. Along with the “not afraid to be herself” bit, she encourages everyone else to be themselves.

And the honor of Oscar hosts goes to…

Anne Hathaway and James Franco?

Talk about the odd couple.

Don’t get me wrong, I love both Hathaway and Franco. I love them when they’re in their element, like “The Princess Diaries” and “Pineapple Express,” respectively.

The duo might be perfect to host an episode of SNL together, but The Oscars? I’m not convinced. It’s like throwing two academically advanced pre-teens into college before they’ve hit puberty. It’s just not right.

Who knows, I could be eating my words after The 83rd Academy Awards air on Feb. 27, 2011. But Hathaway and Franco could also be letting their inner TAG kid shine through, fumbling through a job better suited to someone more reputable than actors who are best known for portraying a princess and a stoner.

Tell me what you think…

SNL in December is the perfect gift

Mark your calendars, people.

Robert De Niro, Paul Rudd and Jeff Bridges are all hosting an episode of “Saturday Night Live” during the month of December.

De Niro kicks things off on Dec. 4 with Diddy as the night’s musical guest. Rudd will host Dec. 11 with Paul McCartney (yay!) and Bridges on Dec. 18 with Eminem (weird pairing alert).

Regardless, I’m excited for all of them! Paul Rudd is one of the most underrated comedians in Hollywood, Jeff Bridges is the dude, and come on… De Niro? No explanation necessary.

Cusack quoth the raven, nevermore

Initially, I was unsure about a modern day Edgar Allan Poe movie. However, I started warming up to the idea once I learned about the talent attached to the project.

“The Raven,” starring John Cusack and directed by James McTeigue (“V For Vendetta”), is a fictional tale of Edgar Allan Poe’s final days.

Cusack keepin' it gothic on the set of "The Raven"

Cusack will portray the (brilliant!) writer as he tracks down a serial killer whose crimes are an exact replica of his stories.

Cue excited squeals.

Alice Eve and Luke Evans co-star; “The Raven” is set for a 2011 release.

Three new tracks from Robyn

Swedish pop sensation Robyn is easily one of the most underrated musicians of today. I’ve endorsed her many times before, and I’m about to do it again.

Talk about dedication… Robyn is about to release her THIRD album of the year, “Body Talk: Pt. 3” on Nov. 22. Part one was good, part two was better, and from what I’ve heard, part three could be the best of the bunch.

Check out three of the new tracks here before the album drops in a few weeks.

“Call Your Girlfriend”:

“Time Machine”:

“Stars 4-Ever”:

Wakey!Wakey! unveils new tunes

It’s a good day when your favorite band unexpectedly releases not one, but two new tracks.

Technically, “Dance So Good” has already been released by Wakey!Wakey!, but this is a revamped version of the track, complete with the full band. And it sounds even better than the original, more acoustic number.

“Great Lake Love” might just be my new favorite, though.

However, taking my word for it would be a mistake. Listen to them both below:

Yet another “Tron: Legacy” trailer

Can’t. Breathe. Too much awesomeness.

It’s sort of bad how obsessed I am with this movie and it isn’t even out yet.

Not for another 37 days that is!

Er… I don’t have a personal count down, I swear. There’s just this handy clock on Yahoo! Movies that told me.

It could be worse. I could have opened a high-end “Tron” inspired boutique like this one in Culver City.
