What’s Going On – New music, short horror movies

22 Oct

Mornin’, y’all!

Did y’all watch the Scream Awards on Spike last night?

I’ve never seen them before but I dvr’d them last night – with the promise of extra “Watchmen” footage – and I really enjoyed it. All of my favorite things were there…
> The Smashing Pumpkins performed.
> Tim Burton won a “Scream Immortal” award
> “Dexter” won for Best Show
> Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance introduced stars of “Watchmen” (including one of my favorite guys, Jeffrey Dean Morgan), and the aforementioned extra “Watchmen” footage
> Little bit of extra “Twilight” footage
> Jared Padalecki!!!!!!
> Marilyn Manson gave away an award for “Most Memorable Mutilation.” Whee!

Kinda cheesy, sure, but it was fun to watch. And yeah, everything was totally up my alley. I’m such a geek… 🙂

Are y’all going to the free Jimbo Mathus show in Tupelo tonight?

Newsy bits!

  • The first single from Guns ‘n’ Roses’ “Chinese Democracy” hits radio today.
  • Punknews.org is streaming “All Aboard: A Tribute to Johnny Cash.” The CD features Cash covers by bands like The Dresden Dolls, and members of bands like Lucero and The Hold Steady. So far my favorite is MxPx’s cover of “Hey Porter.”
  • Speaking of streaming CDs, you can stream the new Ryan Adams and the Cardinals album on iLike. Hurry – it’s only up for 48 hours.
  • The Black Keys + ZZ Top = surely some awesome sonic sounds. The two are working together for ZZ’s new CD.
  • Rufus Wainwright says his new CD will feature simple sounds.
