Music Docs to see this weekend

If you live in LA go to Cinefamily for their Punk & No Wave Weekend. As the description says, “Video artists Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong, in the pre-MTV days from 1977-80, spent their nights documenting New York’s nascent punk and no wave scenes. Armed with portapak cameras, they shot now legendary performances and on-camera […]

Happy Birthday, Britney

During Britney Spear‘s prime I really disliked her.  It was for the reasons you would expect.  Her records were not about her but just a tool for her producers to create a pop song, she was a manipulated by her management into making bad choices, she over-sexualized herself without realizing the implications.  The implications being […]

David Letterman: Punk Rocker

To this viewer, there was nothing more original than Late Night With David Letterman.  The Late Show was a well deserved 22 year victory lap for David Letterman.  Everything I learned from comedy appreciated about comedy came from Letterman’s perspective.  It’s probably why I’m a little more cynical and jaded than I should be.  It’s […]

Artist cameos in Films

I stole this idea straight up from Flavorwire (click on the link and watch Peter Sellers in The Road To Hong Kong. You won’t regret it).  The idea is that some of the best moments in film are when an unexpected appearance from someone with a familiar face suddenly shows up on screen (think Alfred Hitchcock).  With […]

Celebrity Branded Perfumes

Yes, it’s that time of year when major releases come out and I’m not talking about music, I’m talking about celebrity branded perfumes.  Ever wondered what a Britney Spears scent might be like?  If that’s not your speed how about the smell of 20 year old men?  Yes, One Direction has a fragrance out too. […]

Miley Cyrus

Everyone knows the quote “Those who don’t know history are doomed, are destined to repeat it“.  For pop culture, there should be an addendum that this holds true, unless you are a former child star and want to  change your image.    It’s the same basic recipe that’s been followed since the 1970’s when David […]

Herb Ritts

Like any great musician with a unique sound that can’t be duplicated, Herb Ritts has a unique style to his photographs.  Most of his photos contain one or more of the following styles, exaggerated physiques, elastic torsos that accentuate the human form and faces in the throes of ecstasy.  Like a great song, they’re fun […]

20 years

Lollapalooza celebrating its 20th year in existence reminded me of what my Dad used to ask when I was listening to my crazy music, “Are they going to be around in 20 years?”  But I don’t think he understood that much of pop music is of the moment, to be enjoyed for a few months […]

Rolling in the Deep

You know a song is “of the moment” when every type of artist finds itself attracted to it and desires to reinterpret the song.  I can’t think of another time in the past 20 years where so many artists are earnestly paying homage to a song. Pick a version Rock Linkin Park ,  R&B John Legend, Electronic Mike Posner or […]
