Everthing’s on TV

Everything’s On TV is a great song by the Hellacpoters…

Hope ya had a good 4th of July

David Hasselhoff will be doing a hip-hop album. He is leaving his wife and going gangsta. Ice T might be producing it. Brandy and Regis may guest on the album. You can’t make this stuff up. I own one of David’s CDs. Funny stuff… some songs are in German and some in English.

Rock Star Supernova premiered last night. I thought the ratings were poor last season on NBC… not sure why it got a 2nd season on CBS…? Tommy Lee is not only a judge but he is also listed as one of the Executive Producers in the end credits. This might mean he gets a cut of the profits from the show. The 1st episode of the 2nd seasons was so boring it was crazy. The contestants seem to be performing the same played out songs they played last season. They said at one point that Supernova will go on tour for a year with their winning singer. Mark my words, this will never happen. Musically, I have a ton of respect for Tommy Lee, Jason Newsted and Gilby Clark BUT I think Butch Walker is a snobby over-rated little man. Tommy did some work with him on his last solo CD so I guess that is why he is a judge on this show. The judges seemed to really like Dilana’s performance of a Nirvana song. She stood motionless for the first part of the song and then, surprise; she goes crazy as the song climaxed. Her performance seem contrived and sleepy to me. They also liked Zayra. I thought she was a little goofy. I guess Jason thought she was hot because he asked her to marry him. She looked like she jumped off the short bus to me. I thought Ryan was good and also Lukas. Most of the people on this show seem very NOT rock. Very unoriginal in their sound and look… in general, they strike me as not creative types… BUT hey this isn’t about art, it is about getting ratings, which makes me wonder why they didn’t at least get some hot chicks and heartthrob guys. I guarantee that none of these contestants ever heard of Flotsam and Jetsam.

Little Steven Van Zandt is a big TV star. He is also an amazing guitar player. He recently ended his salary dispute with HBO and he will continue on as Silvio Dante in the final season of the Sopranos. Van Zandt put out a great album a few years back called, Born Again Savage. It features Jason Bonham and Adam Clayton. Clayton is one of the most underrated bass players of our time. Drummer Jason Bonham is a also a big TV star on a show on VH1 called Supergroup. I love that Supergroup show; it is hard rocking television at its best.

Enough about TV… let’s talk about the silver screen. That’s right, Keith is coming to a theater near you. He done falling out of trees and now it is time to be a pirate. Keith Richards will play Captain Jack Sparrow’s father in 3rd Pirates Of the Caribbean film.

Bryan Singer, who grew up listening to Kiss, and Paul Stanley, who is a fan of Bryan’s films, where spotted chatting on the red carpet for the premiere of Bryan’s new Superman film. If you have not yet seen this movie, go see it NOW!!!
