The 36 Best and Worst Celebrity Baby Names of All Time
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Just as we turn to celebrities for new trends to name our children, we also look toward them to see what outrageous names they have picked this time around. From Apple to Zahara, Mallory Moss presents the best and worst celebrity baby names of all time. And when it was bad, it was horrid: Audio Science (Shannon Sossamon & Dallas Clayton). Supposedly, the parents -- a musician and an author -- were looking for a "word name" and decided this name was meaningful. Sorry, this name is hideous. Meaningful words in baby naming may include Harmony, Grace and, yes, even Moxie -- but not Audio Science! Pirate (Jonathan & Devon Davis). I suppose we should expect the frontman of Korn to have an odd name for a child to match his musical proclivities. But Pirate? Using words with negative connotations can target children with personas of ill-repute before they even have a chance to establish their own identities. Blue Ivy (Beyoncé Knowles & Jay-Z).

Music: The Amazing Return of The Rave-Ups' Jimmer Podrasky
Huffington Post - over 3 years
NOTE: I belong to a group of film buffs called the IRAs who gather annually to vote on their favorite movies of the year. Many of these people I see only once a year and know nothing about, so I'm always vaguely astonished when I see they actually exist in the real world. This one has just published a novel called The Big Crowd and got a rave review from Scott Turow in the New York Times. That one is a renowned expert on film noir and is hosting a series on Alfred Hitchcock at the 92nd St. Y. So I shouldn't have been surprised when critically acclaimed and best-selling author Ed Sikov sent me an MP3. I knew him best as a film historian, including his masterpiece On Sunset Boulevard, a biography of director Billy Wilder. But music? I'd never heard Ed so much as whistle the theme song for 20th Century Fox. He sent me a tune and asked what I thought about it. The tune was rock and roll, in the roots rock vein. I liked it -- a lot -- and had a nagging sensation I should know the artist. ...

Robin Jones/Evening Standard/Getty Images Johnny Cash would have turned 80-years-old this year, and though he isn’t alive to celebrate his birthday, the celebrations continue. On Friday night (April 20), Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theatre in Austin, Texas was packed nearly to capacity with eager fans, friends and family members who came together for a party in the late Man in Black’s honor. The Johnny Cash Walk the Line event — meant to pay tribute to Cash’s legacy and recognize his birthday, which was February 26 — went off without a hitch in the capital city, just feet from the spot where the new 8-foot-tall Willie Nelson statue made its debut hours earlier. Of course, Willie Nelson was in attendance to honor the legend, as were Ronnie Dunn, Shooter Jennings, Sheryl Crow, Jamey Johnson, Lucinda Williams, Kris Kristofferson and many more.

Waylon Jennings' Last Recordings to Be Released September 11
KNCI 105.1 - almost 5 years
Saguaro Road Records In February, we reported that legendary country outlaw Waylon Jennings‘ family had determined to celebrate the singer’s life and career with a new album of primarily unreleased material. This week, the release date and track listing of ‘Goin’ Down Rockin’: The Last Recordings’ was finally announced. Due out September 11, 2012, the record will feature 12 songs, 11 of which Jennings wrote. All 12 songs on the new project were recorded by the country legend during the last few years of his life, before his death in 2002. During those years, Jennings and accompanist Robby Turner recorded all of the tracks in the studio with the legend on guitar and Turner on bass. Though they had plans for how they wanted to fill out the rest of the tracks instrumentally, Jennings’ death cut the process short. And while the country star’s wife and son, Shooter Jennings, knew about the recordings but originally didn’t want to capitalize on the death of their loved one. But now, ...

Album review: Shooter Jennings' 'Family Man'
LATimes - almost 5 years
After the psychedelic dystopia of 2010’s “Black Ribbons,” <a class="fplink fp-252583" href="/Shooter+Jennings+1">Shooter Jennings</a> returns to his dust-kicker roots on “Family Man.” Or, more specifically, as he blows out in one breath on “The Real Me”: “I’m a double-talkin’, chicken-lickin’, meaner-than-the-dickens, sick and wicked, hole-diggin’ son of a gun!” Forgive us; we thought you were just the progeny of Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter. Jennings is a Rust Belt Renaissance man on this collection of 10 songs that roams from Southern rock to melodic ballads that sound like Harry Nilsson hopping a train with a steel guitar. Whatever tack Jennings takes, it’s with gusto and pride. On “Southern Family Anthem,” which sounds like Tom Petty in a rough mood, the chorus is “We may be trash but we’re a family.” When Jennings combines styles in one song, he expands the edges of contemporary country. “Manifesto No. 4” marries swamp gospel with the chug of barroom rock. On the last ...
