Check out this Live Blog during the Emmy Nominations for Up-To-The Minute Updates on Homeland, Mad Men, 30 Rock, Big Bang Theory, and Netflix domination!
Meet Cornel Hrisca-Munn. He was born in Romania with no forearms and severely deformed legs, given days to live and then put into an orphanage when he beat the odds. He went on to study philosophy and theology at Keble College in Oxford where he found out what he really loves is playing the drums. Watch him destroy the drumline from “Hot Right Now.” And stop your whining.
The sights are good and the sounds are even better in these live concert films featuring Eric Clapton (and friends), Jimmy Cliff, KISS, Wu-Tang Clan and ZZ Top, available for immediate rocking out on Netflix.
More sad news today: Levon Helm, lead singer and drummer for The Band, has died after a long battle with throat cancer at 71 years old. Here is one of The Band’s most famous songs, “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down”, recorded in 1976.
Watching Radiohead live permanently alters your brain’s chemistry. I’m not sure if a video will work, but let’s give it a shot. Watch Radioheads epic 2-hour set at Coachella 2012 in all it’s glory.
There are laughs aplenty to be had on Netflix with these stand-up concert films featuring Louis C.K., Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Wanda Sykes and Zach Galifianakis.
Ty Segall shows of his shredding skills during a live performance of “Scissor People” with buddies White Fence. Their collaborative album, Hair, comes out later this year. Seriously, the song rips.
Who needs a highfalutin video when you sound this amazing?! Lead singer Brittany Howard is channeling some serious Creedence in their lead single from debut album, Boys & Girls, which is out next week.
This tune is fantastic 60s throwback pop at it’s best. Maybe it has something to do with production by Danger Mouse (Black Keys, The Rapture, Beck, Broken Bells). Electric Guest dropped their debut EP dropped in March.
Tom Waits does his one-of-a-kind thing in this bizarre, circus-like musical theatre experience masquerading as a concert film.
Wowzers. What we have here is some very rare footage of Nine Inch Nails performing debut single”Down In It” off Pretty Hate Machine, one of the greatest albums ever, on the uber-cheesy TV show Dance Party USA. It’s either the very late 80s or the very early 90s, but either way Trent Reznor is wearing a pink scrunchie.
