Lady Gaga's 'Joanne' and Eventual World Tour Could Make 2017 Her Biggest Year
Huffington Post - 5 months
Lady Gaga is a shining example of resilience in an unforgiving pop music world, and in an age where second chances can be hard to come by, the 30-year-old singer is proving she's as ready as ever to make her mark in 2017. Although unofficially confirmed, Gaga is said to be the headlining act at the Super Bowl Halftime Show next February, and the details of her forthcoming debut, Joanne, on October 21 are promising a brand new version of the performer. Joanne will feature some of the most respected names in music, including Beck, Father John Misty, Mark Ronson, Tame Impala's Kevin Parker, Bloodpop, Florence Welch, Josh Homme, and country songwriter Hillary Lindsey. Her newly-released single from the record "Perfect Illusion" debuted at the No. 15 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, and became the 23rd Hot 100 entry of her career. If history complies, it's likely that a world tour will follow the release of Joanne, and tickets for the tour may be some of the most in-demand of her care ...

Let's Put 'Artpop' Behind Us And Appreciate Lady Gaga's 'Perfect Illusion' Music Video
Huffington Post - 5 months
In case you didn’t hear the global gay gasp that occurred at approximately 9:50 p.m. on Tuesday night, Lady Gaga has a new music video for “Perfect Illusion,” the lead single off the singer’s fifth studio album, “Joanne.” Released during the premiere of Fox’s “Scream Queens” (touché, Ryan Murphy, touché), our queen has officially entered a new era. Gone are the “Artpop” days of Botticelli clam shells, Jeff Koons paintings and misguided R. Kelly collaborations. Gaga’s new aesthetic? Rocker tees, ponytail moments that keep Ariana Grande up at night, microphone twirls and short shorts that would make Daisy Duke fret about a yeast infection.  Directed by longtime friend Ruth Hogben, the music video finds the singer stripped down and channeling her inner rock goddess. Set in the desert with a mosh pit full of grunged youth and collaborators Mark Ronson, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, and BloodPop, this is Gaga like we’ve never seen her before.  It’s a step in the ...

Gaga, 30, also revealed that her upcoming fifth album, which includes "Perfect Illusion," will also feature a duet with Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine.

15 for '15: Favorite Music of the Year
Huffington Post - about 1 year
This was a strong year for music and one that felt more tumultuous than ever for planet Earth and its inhabitants. No coincidence, I'm sure. Here are some favorites, and I urge you to browse the Spotify playlist below, which features some notable additions. Happy listening and happy new year. Hiatus Kaiyote - Choose Your Weapon Someone had to invent the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The cheeseburger. The breakbeat. The multi-dimensional, polyrhythmic gangster shit. This foursome from Down Under is all that and then some, and their kitchen sink is stacked with Madlib and Stevie Wonder gumbo and Soulquarian stew, cookin' in Miles mode with Meshuggah-like precision drenched in hot buttered soul. This is the sweet and the savory, and it feels distinctly like the record the band wanted to make - they have a real affinity for the dusty analog past yet look toward a world so vivid and beautiful it sometimes hurts to imagine.

Marshawn Lynch To Oakland: ‘I've Been Losing Too Many Of Y'all'
Huffington Post Sports - about 2 years
Over the last several months, Marshawn Lynch has probably been in the news more for what he hasn’t said than what he has. But when he’s not getting mobbed by the media, the Seattle Seahawks star actually says a lot of things worth listening to. At a hip-hop show in Oakland, California, last year, for example, Lynch took the stage to plead with his hometown’s residents to do as much as they can to keep themselves and those they love alive. A video of the speech, obtained exclusively by TMZ Sports, was posted online Friday: “I remember you motherfuckers, but I need to remember you motherfuckers, you understand me?” he asked the crowd. “You know what I’m talking about? I’ve been losing too many of y’all.” “[I’m] representing where I’m from on the national motherfucking stage to be able to give ya’ll something to represent,” Lynch continued. “But I need y’all motherfuckers here for me to represent.” Lynch’s love for his hometown is well-documented.

Crude explosive devices sent to UK army careers offices
Guardian (UK) - about 3 years
David Cameron chairs meeting of emergency Cobra committee after discovery of packages across south-east England Counter-terrorism police and military bomb disposal experts are investigating after a series of crude but viable explosive devices were sent to army careers offices in south-eastern England. The Guardian understands that the incidents are not thought to have been inspired by al-Qaida. Although the devices were viable, their construction was crude and basic and so they were unlikely to cause serious injury. David Cameron chaired a meeting of the government's Cobra emergencies committee to discuss the packages this afternoon, Downing Street said. Four suspicious packages were discovered at army careers offices in Oxford, Brighton, Canterbury and Slough on Thursday, counter-terrorism police officers said. One package was found in Aldershot, Hampshire, on Wednesday, while two packets were found on Tuesday at the armed forces careers office in Reading, Berkshire, and the a ...

A Wholesome All Hallow's Eve With Tame Impala and the Flaming Lips
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When I emerged dazed from the Bill Graham Auditorium last Thursday night, I remember feeling vaguely surprised that the city was still standing. Civic Center was still there, empty and quiet. And there was City Hall: regal, nonplussed and, unlike me, not spattered with the fake blood that had rained like shrapnel down into the photo pit. Most of my costume was missing, except for the unexplained santa hat still on my head. I did not look like a professional. Perhaps I should have been ashamed of my disheveled state as that noble edifice stared down at me. Thankfully, the crowd dispersing from the theater into the city like CFCs from an aerosol can looked so much weirder. I was standing near two zombie Miley Cyruses, a manic ginger in a dwarf outfit, a tiny nordic skeleton and a space lobster. I saw a guy dressed in a form-fitting Beatrix Kiddo costume (of Kill Bill fame), while running with unsustainable velocity toward nothing in particular, trip, soar and faceplant on the street. To ...

The Flaming Lips & Tame Impala Wow Terminal 5
Huffington Post - over 3 years
It was a co-headlining bill that may seem obtuse at first, rising Australian buzz band, Tame Impala on the same level as psychedelic indie legends, The Flaming Lips, but the match-up worked just right. It was a night of music that dazzled the ears, stunned the eyes, and left all senses senseless by the time it was over. A sonic assault on all audience members in attendance to Manhattan's Terminal 5, the co-headlining venture of The Flaming Lips and Tame Impala may be one of the best tours this season. The night opened with music royalty as Sean Lennon's band, The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger supported the first of this bills two sold-out nights at the venue. While Lennon the latest incarnation of Lennon's new band sounded like they have been playing together for years were only on their fourth gig together. The band's sound is a cross between classic rock, prog, and early psychedelia, which by the time they covered a Syd Barret song, it fit in perfectly. While the band had songs that ...

Lyons, Colo. Residents Unable To Return Home For 2-6 Months, Water Contaminated Due To Flood
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The disastrous flooding in Colorado brought even more bad news to Lyons residents Thursday, who learned during a town meeting that they might not be able to move back home for two to six months. Officials say the town's drinking water is contaminated with E. coli and is unsafe to drink, water and sewage lines will cost at least $1 million to repair, and roads and bridges are badly damaged, The Longmont Times-Call reported of the meeting. Floodwaters engorged the St. Vrain River, changing its course and took out the town's bridges. "It isolated this community into a separate island," Boulder Sheriff Sergeant Kevin Parker told The Denver Post, indicating a group of houses. "Having recently re-read Stephen King's new book '[Under] The Dome' -- it was very similar." As early as Sept. 12, the day after the major flooding began, the town was described by Boulder County Sheriff Joseph Pelle as being "completely isolated." Residents had to be evacuated by the National Guard and were ...

PHOTOS: Ice Bar Helps New Yorkers Cool Down In Blistering Heat
Huffington Post - over 3 years
NEW YORK -- In the sweltering summer heat, New Yorkers are ready for the big chill – in midtown Manhattan. The city's first ice bar is now open at the New York Hilton Midtown on Sixth Avenue. The $20 admission includes Eskimo-style gloves and a parka for the privilege of drinking cocktails in the freezing Minus5 Ice Bar. The entire bar is made of ice. "The walls, everything," manager Chris Eldridge said. "The chairs you're sitting on, the glass you're drinking out of, even the light above your head is made of ice." Promoters say it's all carved out of "100 percent Canadian ice." The truth is, it's special, extra-clear "carvers" ice – some from Canada, the rest from Philadelphia, Las Vegas and Minneapolis. About 350 blocks of it, each weighing up to 100 pounds, was used to create the cool surroundings that are meant to feel good on a Manhattan afternoon when temperatures soared into the 90s. Guests are accompanied to the meat locker-type bar door by "pa ...

On the farm: Here are 10 must-see acts at Bonnaroo
Blue Ridge Now - over 3 years
MANCHESTER, Tenn. (AP) — The headliners usually get all the ink and this year's group at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival is definitely ink-worthy: Paul McCartney, Mumford & Sons and Tom Petty. It's the down-list acts, though, that make this a particularly strong Bonnaroo lineup with a number of must-see acts you ought to check out before they're so big you'll be standing at the back of the crowd watching them on the video screens. Here are 10 to see: Alt-J: This Mercury Prize-winning quartet plays angular pop songs that are oddly intoxicating. Like fellow Brits McCartney and Mumford, the group has a gift for sugary songs that are impossible to resist. Action Bronson: The burly, bearded rapper from Queens is poised to release his major-label debut later this year and has been whipping up a frenzy in London before returning to the states for Bonnaroo. Expect stage diving, East Coast harmonics and lots of naughty humor. Charli XCX: The alternapop princess has had the ...

Pink May Not Fly in Deep Blue District
Forward - over 4 years
Kevin Parker doesn’t have any catchy monikers like his pink-loving opponent, Mindy Meyer, in a race for state Senate in Brooklyn. “She says she’s ‘senator and she knows it,’ but I actually am senator,” said Parker, an incumbent Democrat. “I really do have responsibilities.” Meyer is now well known by her self-appointed name, Diva of the District. Although Parker has been in office for the past decade, he has yet to trend on social media. That doesn’t worry Parker, though. “I have a proven track record,” says the state senator in a phone interview. Parker has been exceedingly diplomatic when it comes to his young opponent’s recent media attention and her unusual campaign strategies, saying only: “I take all challenges seriously, because I take the democratic process seriously. I’m looking forward to debating her on the issues.” He cautioned her, however, that “deep red doesn’t win in a deep blue district using deep pink,” referring to Meyer’s now famous glittery pin ...
