11 Comments · Wednesday, October 26, 2011
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.

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.

It’s hard to be an aging Hip Hop artist. You can retain your dignity and status only so long before some young whippersnapper MC conjures up the most destructive dis of all: “You’re old.” So kudos to Ad-Rock of The Beastie Boys for somehow managing to not completely embarrass himself or his bandmates during a recent appearance on Quilting Arts TV … er, rather Top Chef: Just Desserts.

After a flight from Canada to Shanghai, the singer for Behind Sapphire was detained and placed in jail for six days for what he claims to have “accidentally” hidden in his luggage. A glock? Hand grenade? Snacks from Panda Express? Nope — the vocalist was reportedly jailed because his suitcase contained collectible antique bullets from World War I.

A surprise was in store for the Canadian World-music-inspired band The Tea Party. Even though the group disbanded six years ago, according to Bloomberg BusinessWeek, their teaparty.com domain is a hot commodity and still visited often by members of the Tea Party political organization, whose ignorance apparently extends to Google ineptitude.
