Weekend Fun (And Other Things Too)

There’s a bunch of TV Marathons this weekend.

The World Famous KROQ is doing a Top 400 of KROQ.

Whatever you do this weekend, enjoy yourself. Happy travels if you’re going anywhere.

I’m going to do some of the tv marathon stuff and KROQ too.

Fun times with my kids.

BBQ is in the plans…yardwork…sports…probably news too with the things going on in the world. It’s not looking smooth on that front.

I recently had a chance to see Unknown Hinson live and in person performing his brand of rockabilly, country thing in a punk and humorous way. Unknown Hinson is also the voice of Early in Squidbillies. \m/ Great times!

Happy Birthday, Michael Jackson

Happy Birthday to Michael Jackson!

A lot has been said over time about Michael Jackson. The talent was/is and forever is ingrained in pop culture. In the 80’s, I liked a lot of stuff, but like most of my life, I leaned towards rock. Yet, like much of the American and worldwide public, I bought Thriller. Thriller was like nothing else at that time. It’s almost hard to explain just how popular it was at the time. I went on and bought Bad and Dangerous too.

Even the earlier Off The Wall stuff was great. The Jackson 5 stuff from when he was a kid was poppin’ as only Motown could do then.

The period in the 80’s when the Jackson’s reunited, remember State of Shock with Mick Jagger. Unique for sure. Nice guitar riff.

History. The later stuff, like Scream with Janet. There was Blood On The Dance Floor. Plus, Invincible.

Michael Jackson named himself the King of Pop, but talking talent in the pop world, that is pretty accurate.

Heck, there was a Jackson’s cartoon.

The Michael Jackson caricature is another one by David Cowles. You can see all his work via Tumblr.

Life In Fall Entertainment Mode

Fall TV will be coming soon. Stalker and Gotham intrigue me. Get a look at the tv net trailers. CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX and The CW. As you may or may not know, although I like comedy, I’m way more of a drama person. The deeper and darker, the better. I want things that make me think and twist my brain. Stuff souls ingest or vice versa…good or bad.

Fall TV info. inside and out with all details: The Futon Critic.

Holy crap time…The final seasons of Sons of Anarchy and Boardwalk Empire are near. It’s gonna be dark. I just have a feeling. I can’t wait!

New York Magazine’s Fall Preview Entertainment Generator.

Fall Music and Beyond. Looking forward to U2, Robert Plant, Interpol,  TV On The Radio, Madonna, Prince, Foo Fighters, Adele, Weezer, Bruce Springsteen, GNR, Metallica, John Mellencamp, Don Henley, Billy Idol, David Bowie, Living Colour, AC/DC, Kid Rock, ZZ Top, Faith No More, The National etc.

Fall Music dates and more: Pause and Play.

So, is Nikki Finke done with her site? It looks that way for now anyway. If and when she returns, I’m guessing a massive anger-filled, vessel-popping meltdown. It could be a classic. Snark x1000 with meathooks.
Some people love her and some hate her. I find her entertaining, usually.

Tim Allen: Classic Pre-Home Improvement.

I’ve been listening to a lot of Mother Love Bone from way back with the late Andrew Wood and the guys who would go on with Eddie Vedder as Pearl Jam. I still say MLB would have been huge had things not happened.

The greatness that is Bill Cosby pushing those Pudding Pops in 1987.

Fall Movies and Beyond. Looking forward to The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington, Mad Max: Fury Road starring Tom Hardy, Focus starring Will Smith, Mortdecai starring Johnny Depp, Batman vs. Superman starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, Jurassic World starring Chris Pratt, American Sniper with Bradley Cooper, Seventh Son starring Jeff Bridges, Terminator: Genesys starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Scarpa starring Sly Stallone, Inferno starring Tom Hanks, The Prince starring Bruce Willis, Mission Impossible 5 starring Tom Cruise, Candy Store starring Robert DeNiro, By The Sea starring Angelina Jolie, Masterpiece starring Al Pacino, The Hateful Eight starring Kurt Russell and Jennifer Lawrence etc.

Fall Movie dates and more: Jo Blo.

Kelsey Grammer: Classic Around Cheers Pre-Frasier.

I recently watched one of my all time favorites, The Crow with Brandon Lee. I never get tired of it. It made an impression on me the first week it hit in the 90’s. A piece of cinema art in every way.

Being a major Ren & Stimpy fan, John Kricfalusi’s blog is always fun. I dig great cartoons and animation and he delivers his style to it.

Jerry Seinfeld: Classic Pre-Seinfeld.

Amazon tv pilots if you’re interested. The very talented badass, Ron Perlman is starring in one of them.

Jessica Alba. Maxim. Latest issue. Yep.

Ellen DeGeneres: Classic Via  her first appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and Pre-Ellen and her sitcoms too.

Podcast I Like: Eddie Trunk on PodcastOne.

Have a great one!

At This Moment

Here’s a few of my favorites in tv, music and movies, at this moment:

MUSIC

My #1 band, by far, for several years is Band of Skulls.

A Perfect Storm by Casual Sex is really excellent…a great vibe. I’ve followed this band for a while. They hail from Glasgow.

The War on Drugs impresses me more all the time.

If the stars line up properly, I believe Ireland’s Hozier could really be something special.

The immensely talented kid, Raury, whose Indigo Child may be THE album everyone soon will know about. Many already do, but his numbers are going to grow.

I dig what I’ve heard of the Counting Crows Somewhere Under Wonderland.

MOVIES

Zoe Kravitz, whom I’ve always liked, with work such as X-Men: First Class is going to be a part of the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road. Lenny should be proud.

Jack O’Connell who is in Starred Up, will star in the Angelina Jolie directed film, Unbroken.

I really enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy. It is probably one of the best Marvel films.

TELEVISION

Netflix animated Bojack Horseman starring Will Arnett and Aaron Paul.

I’ve always been a 24 head. 24: Live Another Day starring Kiefer Sutherland is now on dvd.

FX’s The Strain.
