A dead dolphin would not be the strangest thing ever found in the waters of New Jersey, but it is probably the strangest thing found outside Jon Bon Jovi’s house. The dolphin was part of a family that had been trapped in the Jersey waterways for several months, and Federal officials resisted moving the dolphins…

YouTube’s Take On Columbine Is Predictable Yet Disturbing

Today is the 10th anniversary of the Columbine shootings. I was curious to see if there were any tribute-style YouTube clips about the event, since it did take place before the advent of widespread online video. Surprisingly, there are quite a few; more surprisingly, most are not altogether different from the graduation montages I looked…

Perry Farrell Knows How To Keep His Name In The Press

Jane’s Addiction leader Perry Farrell has decided to save the complaints about his band’s upcoming reunion tour for conversations with reporters: “I’m not going to tell you it’s been all smooches and hugs. But it shouldn’t be because that would be a bore,” he told a Reuters writer while hanging out at Coachella over the…

Will Kelly Clarkson’s New Single Hook Up With The Top Of The Charts?

The ridiculously enjoyable “I Do Not Hook Up” has been teed up the second single from Kelly Clarkson’s All I Ever Wanted, and all systems so far seem to be go. The song is (deservedly) gaining steam on radio (it’s up to No. 28 on Mediabase’s Top 40 airplay chart), and a video for the…

This Thursday, the Gospel Music Channel will air a documentary on American Idol’s effect on the Christian music world, one of those unspoken synergies that’s always manifested itself in semi-uncomfortable ways for those of us not in the evangelical fold. Among the interviewees: Melinda Doolittle, Phil Stacey, and the sister of current Idol annoyance Danny…

Ne-Yo’s Bittersweet Record Store Day

The fourth single from Ne-Yo’s Year Of The Gentleman is the despairing breakup ballad “Part Of The List,” and its attendant video is a sad little clip that opens in one of the few remaining record stores in the world and goes into full-on European Vacation Reminiscence Mode from there. And then there’s a twist–one…

What Records Help You Chill Out?

Last night, between a very annoying Mets loss and a session of bug-searching, I took some time to listen to a side of the Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour while sitting on (well, leaning up against, really) a bean bag, a cold beer in my hand. And I did nothing else. It was nice! It was…

Clear Channel Coming To The Very Halting Realization That It Pretty Much Screwed Up Radio

Clear Channel has announced that it is going to try and “improve program quality” at all the radio stations that it owns in the country through–gasp–allowing station managers to program their charges in a way that’s relevant to their local audience. Yes, “hyperlocalization”–a buzzword that, since it’s being employed by a bunch of Internet startups

Fergie Power: How the Spun-Off Diva Dragged Her Homeboys to No. 1

Let’s imagine that in 1992, just after Nevermind peaked, Dave Grohl took a break from Nirvana to form Foo Fighters. I mean, why not? Grohl was a gun for hire, at least the sixth drummer to sit in with the band before they finally broke big. And let’s say he scored some of those juicy…

Fall Out Boy: Banned In Boca?

Fall Out Boy have had to move Tuesday night’s concert scheduled for the Mizner Amphitheater in Boca Raton, Fla., to a nearby shed because the city is worried about the “security challenges” that might result from the band playing. (That loud thud you just heard was every wannabe comedian on the Internet cracking the same…

Jarvis Cocker Throws Around Some Glitter

Jarvis Cocker’s second solo album Further Complications comes out next month, and the first track to make its way out to the Internet is “Angela,” a bit of raucous rock with lyrics that are just naughty enough to inspire you to shake your ass while seated at your desk. (You might want to get up…

Recession-Proofing Your Band

Earlier this week, the Chicago Tribune’s Greg Kot asked a few Chicago-area musicians about how they were fighting through the tough economy. Some formed cover bands (Led Zeppelin 2… ha!) and went out with stripped-down outfits on the road. Part of me is a little “yeah, duh” about musicians having second jobs, and in the…

Celine Dion May Have The Habs Yet

Perhaps hoping to assert her Québecois status even further, singer Céline Dion is interested in being part of a group that would buy the 24-time NHL champions the Montreal Canadiens, who are currently fighting their way through the first round of the NHL playoffs against their blood rivals from Boston. It’s unsure whether or not…

Pirate Bay Found Guilty, Engage In Ridiculous Analogy-Dropping

The four men behind Swedish file-swapping hub The Pirate Bay have been found guilty of violating copyright law, and they’ve been sentenced to one year in jail and fined 30 million kronor, which comes out to about $3.6 million. The hubristic guys running the site have not only compared themselves to Daniel from The Karate…

Test Test 1

So this weekend, while getting my breakfast at a local coffee shop, Semisonic’s “Closing Time” came on the radio. The girl behind the counter, whose age I’d have pegged at 17 tops, quickly turned it up: “Oh, I love this song!” Somewhere between fishing my $3.13 out of my pocket and walking out the door…
