Step away from the Bing Crosby!

Posted By on Wed, Dec 30, 2009 at 6:26 PM

Now that Christmas is over and the only holiday still going on was created in the 1960's (sorry Kwanzaa), I'm going to need the world to act like it's not Christmas day anymore.

Turning on the radio after a shitty Christmas Day only to hear more songs about Santa's fat ass jetsetting the world only adds insult to injury when you know he doesn't exist or imagine hearing Donny Hathaway's "This Christmas" after celebrating another "big day" alone, nothing "special" about that.

Think about the kids. If you keep telling them that Santa Claus is coming to town after Christmas day and they're going to expect him to drop by three or four days in a row. That's not fair.

I kind of understand the logic of stores playing holiday music while you take back all those unwanted gifts you got but in that case, why are the Christians the only ones to get in the on the act? I mean, they're my people but I've never heard a Hanukkah or Kwanzza carol, especially in the mall.

Then you have you're perfectly PC holiday season anthems. "White Christmas?" Are you serious? We live in the South (and I'm going to ignore the racial undertones on that song)

My point? They start sooner and sooner with this stuff every year, I was hearing "Jingle Bell Rock" the day after Halloween. Let's just pack up the holiday albums for the year and bring them out on Black Friday 2010.

Limp Bizkit, um, returns

Posted By on Wed, Dec 30, 2009 at 11:25 AM

Taking the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach, Limp Bizkit sounds like they're returning to their old rap-metal days with their new album.

Here's the silhouette of Fred Durst doing the Pauly D fist pump to his new song...

Songs for New Year's Eve?

Posted By on Mon, Dec 28, 2009 at 2:44 PM

There are plenty of songs for Christmas, but what about New Year's Eve? Of course, there's Auld Lang Syne... and we could even add in U2's "New Year's Day." But there have to be more, right?

What songs come to your mind when you think of the end/start of a year?

Do we include Prince's "1999"? What about Kool & The Gang's "Celebration"?

Sure people are spending money this holiday, but it's still a recession. Comedian Lil Duval remade this holiday classic into a more honest account of what his loved ones should expect from him this Christmas.

Airheads... I don't know why

Posted By on Wed, Dec 23, 2009 at 5:12 PM

You know it's a slow weekend when the movie Airheads comes on HBO and you actually sit through the entire thing.

What's fascinating about watching this flick, which came out in the mid-'90s, in 2009 is the fact it's so dated that it could never be made again.

Just think about how much the music industry has changed since then.

Artists aren't dying to have their music played on their local stations anymore, if anything they want to distance themselves from how mainstream and generally whack those stations are.

Pushing cassettes directly to music executives or program directors? Sneaking into a station to try and get your demo in their hands?

Video: Jay-Z & Mr. Hudson's "Young Forever"

Posted By on Tue, Dec 22, 2009 at 2:11 PM

Who doesn't reminisce fondly of their younger days? Jay-Z's new video for "Young Forever" draws images of late-night pizza and pickup basketball, understandably, Brooklyn (stereotypically), but tractors and skateboarding? Not so much. As you're watching all it's Bod body spray and teamwork PSA imagery of kids in black and white, people frolicking through prairies and just a hint of 2Pac's "Brenda's Gotta Baby," it'll strike you that neither Jay-Z or Alphaville are young at all and if you're old enough to remember the original at your prom, you'll hit the spiked egg nog a little harder for your advanced years.
