THIS is a band you need to know about. I've seen them in person and met them a couple of times. Beware Of Darkness is as strange and as cool as they look. They got to play Conan this past week and absolutely KILLED it. If you missed it... watch this:
Cell phone footage of a student in Texas berating his teacher for not caring enough is trending on YouTube. (It happened at a school in Duncanville, Texas, just outside of Dallas.)
In the video, he's just been kicked out of class, but stops on his way out to criticize the teacher for not motivating the students, and only giving them boring worksheets to fill out.
He says, quote, "You want kids to get excited for this? You gotta come in here and make them excited. You want a kid to change and start doing better? You gotta touch his freakin' heart."
Then he mentions that she recently came to class and talked about her paycheck for some reason, saying, quote, "When you come in here like you did last time, and make a statement about, 'Oh, this is my paycheck,' indeed it is. But this is my country's future, and my education."
I'm not condoning going off on your teachers because it IS disrespectful, but I think THIS kid may have a valid point.
Jimmy Kimmel did a segment the other night where a staffer went to the Coachella music festival, and asked people to comment on made-up bands, like "The Chelsea Clintons" and "The Obesity Epidemic."
The result was a bunch of hipsters embarrassing themselves. And apparently the guys at FootballNation.com liked the idea, because they sent someone to the NFL Draft, and asked fans to comment on PLAYERS that don't actually exist.
It's actually more ridiculous than the Kimmel one, because the player names are SO obviously fake . . .. (They answer questions about "Buster Hymen," "Mike Hawk," and "Neil Andblow.")
I have played organized sports my entire life. Playing football was a HUGE part of my life for a LONG time. This guy yells just like every single one of the coaches I had in my career. The only difference between this guy and my coaches is that Al Gore hadn't invented the internet yet and people weren't putting videos like these online. If there was the internet nobody would take the time to let the video load for an hour and a half on dial-up.
I think everyone is blowing this WAY out out of purportion. Lot's of folks are calling for his job after he called his player "f*&%ing retarded."
Bad choice of words. Get over it. Waaah.
Alice In Chains were the musical guests on Wednesday night's (April 10th) edition of ABC-TV's Jimmy Kimmel Live! The band performed three songs -- "Stone," "Hollow" and "Man In The Box" -- on the show's outdoor stage in front of a standing-room-only crowd. The first two tracks are from the band's new album, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, which is scheduled for release on May 28th. Video footage of the performance is now online. (Blabbermouth)
How many times have you asked "why doesn't MTV play music videos anymore?" FINALLY, someone actually answered the burning question and you know what... totally makes sense. This is awesome.
“AIC 23” is the story of Alan Poole McLard, a Film Studies Professor at a community college, who is trying to make a documentary film about ALICE IN CHAINS to coincide with the release of their new album, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. Without the cooperation of the members of Alice in Chains, Alan does his best to interview other musicians that may, or may not, have influenced AIC throughout the years....
Disturbed/Device frontman David Draiman's brother, Ben Draiman, has posted a new video online for the song "Avalanche." The song is the latest single from Ben's debut EP, The Past Is Not Far Behind, which came out last October. Unlike his brother, who specializes in industrial metal and making monkey sounds while singing, Ben is a singer/songwriter who attempts more melodic style that incorporates a piano.
Ben performs as a solo artist in Israel, where he currently lives. After hearing this I'm going out on a limb and saying it won't be shooting up the charts over here in the states any time soon. Wow.
