Frank Ocean Sued

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Gossip, Industry News, Hip-Hop & Rap,

Frank OceanFrank Ocean is being sued over his track "Lost." The singer, his record label Def Jam, and producer Malay are being sued by songwriter Micah Otano, who claims the song is too similar to his composition "Daylight."

Micah filed a lawsuit in California last week, seeking compensation for back royalties and damages. In the suit he claims he wrote the track "Daylight" with Malay, which the producer then copied for "Lost."

The track was the fourth single from Frank's breakthrough Channel Orange debut album in the US, which was won a Grammy Award for Best Urban Contemporary Album earlier this year.

Frank has also recently said he is hard at work on the follow up to his highly acclaimed debut and already has a concept and a number of songs ready: "I'm 10, 11 songs into this next thing. It's another cohesive thing bordering on a concept album again. At the end of Channel Orange there's "Golden Girl" and I kind of want to extend that feeling into the next record."

Jorge Garcia Prefers New Character’s Wardrobe

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Action, Drama, Prime Time, FOX, Lost,

Jorge Garcia as Dr. Diego SotoJorge Garcia prefers wearing "more clothes" in 'Alcatraz' than he was able to in Lost.

The 38-year-old actor is currently portraying comic book store owner and writer Dr. Diego Soto in the Fox prison drama, and he is enjoying playing a character who is "smarter" than his Lost alter-ego Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes.

"It was nice to do something different after 'Lost' for so long. It's kind of nice having a character who wears more clothes and is smarter. It's been a lot of fun finding new things to do with my character, that it great for an actor," he said.

Jorge is pleased to be able to explore a different alter-ego after starring in Lost for six years, but he "really misses" filming the ABC drama series in Hawaii and hopes to move back there at some point:

Quote of the Day: J.J. Abrams Weighs in on Lost Ending

J.J. Abrams

“Even if you planned everything [in advance] you’d do yourself a disservice. You couldn’t anticipate Michael Emerson coming on board. I know there’s a lot of people who have dissenting opinions; I think [producers] Damon [Lindelof] and Carlton [Cuse] kicked incredible ass and came up with a finale that ended it well.”

-Lost co-creator and co-executive producer - who hasn’t been directly involved with the program in years - discussing his opinion of the show’s ending with with Comic-Con attendees.

Weekend Reading: Vertical, Fantastic Four, Cowboys & Aliens and Lost

AnthroHappy holiday weekend for those of us in the US who love a long weekend, some grilled meat and a cold Pabst Blue Ribbon. And since there’s no football game, you can spend that extra time surfing the internet. Here are some links to fill the game-less void:

Vertical: Given the significant changes at manga publishers Viz (massive layoffs) and CMX (DC shuttered the division), it’s interesting to read about someone with a little different take on events. Rod Lott at Bookgasm has a chat with Ed Chavez at Vertical (publishers of Osamu Tezuka’s Black Jack, among other things). “While I will always say there is plenty of grade-A material to license from Japan available, access to those properties has become quite limited over the last three to four years. I find it curious that this lack of competition has occurred during the recent decline of the U.S. manga market.”

Steve Perry: The death of the Thundercats and Timespirits writer is just about the saddest way for a comic book creator to go. Johnny Bacardi exchanged correspondence with him recently, but I don’t want to spoil his story, except to say that it’s one you’ll want to read.

Lost DVD to Address Unanswered Questions

While I doubt the Lost producers will ever come close to covering all the holes raised in this humorous CollegeHumor.com video, they will apparently get to some.

If you haven’t already washed your hands of the show, you might want to keep an eye out for the Season 6 DVD due out August 24. According to insiders, the package will include “new content that addresses some of the unanswered questions in an entertaining way.” One report claims the release may contain up to twenty additional minutes of storyline.

Want to make sure executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse answer your nagging questions? Why not send them a tweet? Maybe they’ll finally put your mind to rest.

The Simpsons try to spoil Lost

NOTE: This is not an actual reveal of how the Lost finale ended last night.

Turns out Donald Trump wasn’t the only TV personality vying for our attention Sunday evening.

In hopes of keeping people tuned in for their show’s finale, the folks behind The Simpsons managed to work in a a little “spoiler” during the intro for their show. Their amusing reference to the 4.5-hour long extravaganza can be seen written on the board in the image above.

This is, of course, not the first time Bart Simpson has written about another program in chalk. Back in April, the FOX series wrote words of “support” to their colleagues at South Park.
