Nickelback, Listening Habits and Misfits

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 9, 2011
In some ways, hiring hit-making Rock band Nickelback to perform during halftime of the Detroit Lions/Green Bay Packers game on Thanksgiving makes perfect sense. The band is named after a football position and, um, well … they have a new album out that very week! The reasons Nickelback makes no sense as Turkey Day halftime entertainment are more plentiful.  

Ryan Adams, Juggalos and Odd Future

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 2, 2011
Ryan Adams seemed well on his way to reclaiming his former glory, releasing one fairly straight-forward, mostly solid album this year (instead of eight random ones) and not being such a pissy little brat all the time. Early interviews for the new album seemed to suggest a new sense of self-awareness and a regret over his past rude, baffling statements and actions.

When voters go to the polls on Nov. 8, they will be faced with making a bevy of wide-ranging decisions that will directly and indirectly impact their lives in the months and years ahead. They range from whether Ohioans will be subject to the provisions of federal health-care reforms passed by Congress in late 2009 to whether police and firefighter unions may negotiate for staffing levels to whether Cincinnati should develop any passenger rail projects during the next decade.  

Weiland, Mayer and KISS

For some reason, in the new authorized biography of Steve Jobs. Jobs felt the need to bring up Mayer, saying he’s “out of control” and possibly “blowing it big time,” without providing context or details. Whatever’s wrong, it must be serious — if one the world’s most brilliant innovators and important figures sees fit to posthumously call you a dick, it’s time to do some serious personal inventory.

CityBeat’s endorsements for Cincinnati City Council

Some powerful special interest groups know a secret that the average Cincinnati voter doesn’t: If you want to make your votes for City Council truly matter and have the greatest impact, don’t use all nine of them. That’s right: Even though you can cast nine votes in the council race, you really shouldn’t.

Local Serge Gainsbourg Film Screening/Discussion

{CommentsCant} · Thursday, October 20, 2011
When the French give the world an international pop star, which isn't all that often, they tend to be unforgettable — Edith Piaf, Maurice Chevalier, and, maybe most unusual of all, Serge Gainsbourg. A new and unconventional feature film about him, called Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life and starring Eric Elmosnino in the title role, opens at the Esquire Theatre in Clifton tomorrow. After the 1:10 p.m. Sunday screening, local arts writer and CityBeat contributing editor Steven Rosen will lead a discussion about the film and about Gainsbourg's impact and life in general. For more information, visit www.esquiretheatre.com. Check out the film's trailer below.  

Durst, Sonic Youth and Syl

He called his band “Limp Bizkit,” combines bad rapping with Heavy Metal and made a horrifying sextape (that was mysteriously leaked online). If nothing else, Fred Durst is incredibly accommodating when it comes to providing punchline set-ups. He was at it again recently when it was announced that he had signed a deal with CBS to develop a sitcom, in which he’ll reportedly star. The announced name of the show? Douchebag.
