Blur Unveil Two New Tracks

BlurBlur unveiled two new tracks last night.

The "Song 2" band performed "Under the Westway" and "The Puritan" from a rooftop at a secret location via a live video stream, watched by fans around the world.

The band last staged a reunion show in 2009 but are back together again for a special show on August 12 in London, to mark the end of the Olympics. Bass player Alex James said the band had only started recording the tracks three weeks ago, and finished "The Puritan" last week. When asked whether there was a future for the band after the Olympic shows, Alex told BBC Radio 1, "I've got no idea what happens next, or if it ever happens again." He did, however, add, "There's never been a period where more than six months have gone by and we haven't stuck our heads in and had a bish-bash. It's just really, really good fun."

Music Video: Steven Tyler Debuts “Feels So Good” on American Idol

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Music Videos, Videos, Rock, New Releases,

For decades, Steven Tyler has been shrouded in the mystery of fame -- an elusive, larger-than-life stage presence who fills magazine covers with big hair and grimaces. Thanks to reality TV, we now know he’s the type of guy who rhymes “gaga” with “yaya” (granted, there aren’t a lot of places to go with that), isn’t afraid to drop an F-bomb on the Fox Network and actually makes Jerry Seinfeld’s puffy shirt look vaguely cool.

Still, we weren’t prepared for the weirdness of above music video. It’s for Tyler’s “(It) Feels So Good,” and it’s strangely compelling. The video debuted on American Idol's Top 4 results episode (recap on TV Envy). The song is currently available for download on iTunes.

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Music Videos, Videos, Pop, New Releases,

American Idol's Top 6 sang "Our House" for this week's Ford music video. The number isn't so hot, vocally, but the video's theme was much more simple and identifiable this week at least.

Box Office: Russell Brand Stays on Top

Russell Brand, ArthurUPDATE: Final numbers prove Sunday estimates were wrong. Get the updated -- and accurate -- box office results below.


Even Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman can’t compete with family-friendly Easter-themed animation. Hop has retained its number one box office position, and Portman’s lowbrow comedy flick suffered a dismal opening weekend.

Hop, which cost around $63 million to make, has already earned a cool $68.2 million from box office revenue ($21.7 million this weekend). Thanks to his new comedy flick, Russell Brand is in the top two positions on the box office list for the weekend. Arthur earned $12.6 million to gain the second top slot. His voice is behind the leading bunny in Hop, and Brand plays the title character in the number 2 flick.

Action flick Hanna just barely got pushed into third, earning $12.3 million in its opening weekend. Soul Surfer scored $11.1 million to lock down a fourth place opening. Insidious is still on the top five list (barely) with $9.7 million. Natalie Portman, James Franco and Danny McBride proved to be a dismal box office combination, earning a combined $9.5 with Your Highness to land in sixth place.

UPDATED: Hanna actually earned second place at the box office with $12.4 million. Arthur slid into third place with its $12.2 million box office take.

Box Office: Bradley Cooper is Limitless

Bradley Cooper - Limitless

Who is Hollywood’s new $19 million man? Bradley Cooper. The Limitless star proved to be exactly that at the box office this weekend, scoring the top money-making slot with fans.

But Johnny Depp also easily proved his worth -- he didn’t even have to appear on screen to rake in $15.3 million with the animated Rango. Battle: Los Angeles, opening to horrible reviews, managed a modest $14.6 million to earn the number three position.

Matthew McConaughey’s The Lincoln Lawyer barely earned fourth place with $13.4, only narrowly edging out fifth-ranked Paul’s $13.1 million.

The Spider #1: Martin Powell & Pablo Marcos

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Reviews, Independent,

Spider #1Before The Punisher, before Batman, even before Superman, there was The Spider, Master of Men. The classic pulp hero was created in 1933 by Harry Steeger (co-founder of Popular Publications) to compete with the other pulp crime-fighter, Street & Smith’s The Shadow.

Now, here it is 70 + years later and The Spider is back, now as a comic book character in his first ongoing series, courtesy of award-winning writer Martin Powell and artist Pablo Marcos. The cover is by Dan Brereton (The Nocturnals), and the interior coloring is by Jay Piscopo.

The Spider #1 debuts this week from Moonstone Books as part of their ““Return of the Originals” publishing program.

Here’s the Moonstone pitch: “There was no escape for Nita Van Sloan, abducted by a horde of inhuman monstrosities, doomed to become the victim of a diabolical experiment. The Spider, Master of Men, strikes back with a vengeance, fighting alone against the brutally brilliant creator of the Frankenstein Legion, in a desperate race against time to save the only woman who shares his darkest secrets!”
