Yes, we love anything with Kate Upton. Here’s a cool parody video called “You Got What I Eat” featuring Kate and Snoop Dog for Hot Pockets sandwiches with appearances by Oliver Cooper, Bow Wow and KevJumba. The battle is on between #TeamMeat or #TeamCrust at http://www.HotPockets.com/HotterPockets.
Miley Cyrus has a new music video out for “Wrecking Ball” that you can watch below. In only six days, it has become the fastest music video ever to reach 100 million views on Vevo. She broke her own record that she set for “We Can’t Stop,” which reached that milestone in just 37 days after it premiered.
Needless to say, her much criticized performance at the VMAs hasn’t exactly hurt her popularity when it comes to her videos. As you can see from the photos above and the video below, Miley can look incredibly sexy when she isn’t trying too hard to shock everyone with her twerking and tongue wagging.
Check out the video, as you might be the only person who hasn’t seen it so far!

“Is this going to be like seeing The Four Tops or The Drifters at the county fair, with only one remaining member, but technically still the Four Tops or The Drifters?”
It was Sunday night and I was less than an hour from seeing Queens of the Stone Age. And I was nervous inside. Prior to the concert, I engaged my friend and musical mentor on a phone call, the man who got me into Queens in the first place. Thanks to several lineup changes since their creation, I told him I wasn’t as excited as I should’ve been to see them for the first time.
He laughed and said, “It’s still Queens, dude.”
And by god, was he right. It is still Queens, dude.
If I discovered a magical lamp with a hot genie (built like Barbara Eden) who asked what two acts I’d like to see on successive days that I’d never seen before yet loved for years, in perfect 70 degree weather, less than 10 miles from my home round trip, I would pick Atmosphere and Queens of the Stone Age on reflex alone, without even thinking, like a musical version of Pavlov’s Dog.
I spent Saturday night at the Kicking Up Dust Tour with Slightly Stoopid, Atmosphere and The Grouch and Eligh.
I wrapped up my weekend on Sunday night with Queens of the Stone Age and British newcomers Leo Gun. And I didn’t even need a magical lamp. Or a feeder bar.
The venue, Stir Concert Cove, is a great place to see a show; it is the ultimate intimate experience. Security is chill without being lax, allowing fans to unwind without anarchy ruling.
It may sound ridiculous to talk about acoustics for an outside venue, but the bowl shape of the enclosure wraps neatly around the stage and offers different experiences in sound, whether right in front of the stage or around the outer rim. The way it’s laid out lends itself to artist/fan interaction.
Check out this unique video from Chevrolet and the Detroit-based blues-rock sensation, The Gentlemen Mutineers. Lead singer, Frankie Turner, recently used the 2014 Chevrolet Impala as a mobile studio to record a remix of the band’s Metro City pride anthem, “Detroit Throttle.” The new Impala is quiet by design, due in part to the Active Noise Cancellation technology used in high-end headphones.
This technology allows the engine to operate at the fuel-conserving range of 1,000-1,500 RPM and helps eliminate the need for some sound-deadening materials, all of which improves fuel efficiency. The new Impala also uses a variety of sound-buffering and -absorbing materials to minimize wind, road and engine noise, including acoustically laminated windshield and front-door glass, triple-sealed doors with acoustic perimeter water deflectors, sound-absorbing carpet and dash mat, and more.
You can see the video below. Very cool.
Buzzfeed has an interesting list of iconic New York City music venues like CBGB that have closed over the years along with “then and now” photographs. It’s a sad article for anyone who loves live music and anyone who experienced shows at one of these clubs.
The YouTube clip above has audio and photos from one of Bruce Springsteen’s classic shows at The Bottom Line at 15 West 4th St.
