TMZ is reporting Vanna is being sued after a fan was struck in the face by a guitar.
Eric says without warning a guitar flew through the air and struck him smack in the face. According to the lawsuit, Eric's nose was broken in 5 places. He also suffered lacerations to his face and a guitar string apparently punctured his nose, with a portion lodging inside it.

We created Apple Music to make finding the right music easier for everyone — men and women, young and old. Our new ad focuses on women, which is why I answered the way I did, but of course the same applies equally for men. I could have chosen my words better, and I apologize.

In promotion of their new holiday-themed comedy "The Night Before," Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie had themselves a Lip Sync battle.

The Ghost Inside's management have posted an update to their Facebook about the serious bus crash we reported earlier today. They have confirmed that The Ghost Inside's hired bus driver, as well as the occupant (or occupants) of the semi-truck have passed away. All band members and other crew members are alive and currently being treated for their injuries. They have also announced that the remaining dates of their current Locals Only Tour have been cancelled. Our thoughts go out to the families and those who have lost loved ones, as well as to the band through this trying time.
Futurejust dropped the (NSFW) video for his DS2 track "Rich $ex," with a starring appearance from Blac Chyna. It's raunchy as fuck and in the replies. This is Future's 28th video this year, which no one cares about besides me.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens has now accumulated over $50 million in advanced ticket sales, still a month ahead of release. The previous record was for The Dark Knight Rises, which was around $25 million.

This week's episode of Encore is almost as delicious as macaroni and cheese stuffed chicken wings. This week we look at if an early leak will hurt Adele, the idea of an "infinite" movie franchise, going to shows by yourself, what can impact the price of vinyl, if an artist contributing music to a political campaign bugs us, and the big topic: How would we "fix" Apple Music, the death of Rdio, and the retirement of the Zune. You'll find show notes, ways to subscribe, and links to stream and/or downloaded this episode in the replies.
Reports are coming in from KFMK that The Ghost Inside were involved in an accident in which their bus collided with a semi-truck. Tour manager for the The Wonder Years, Dave Summers, who has been in contact with the band, has stated that all band and crew are alive. There have been unconfirmed reports that two of the occupants of the semi-truck have passed away. We will continue to post information as we discover it. Our thoughts and well-wishes are with the band and everyone involved in this accident.
Since The Matches have (kinda) returned and graced us with new music, it only seems right that we get a music video too, right? While the band released a video a few weeks ago, we've got the group's directors cut version of their video for "Life of a Match." They've dropped the lyrics from the video and added a little tweak for good measure. So jump to the replies to check it out and take a stroll down the scene's memory lane.
Episode two of The Casey Bates Podcast is out and features Dan Young of This Providence. Casey and Dan get into an in-depth discussion about the making of the band's 2006 Fueled By Ramen debut self-titled record. You can listen to it on Soundcloud, iTunes, or Overcast.
“The Earth Will Shake” - If this song isn’t my favorite song we’ve ever written, it’s definitely in my top three. It’s got a little bit of everything I love about certain aspects of our band all wrapped up into one song: a) it’s heavy as hell, b) it draws inspiration from somewhere you might not expect (chain gang songs), c) it’s in an odd time signature, d) it incorporates a good deal of dynamics, and e) it translates very well in a live setting. “Earth" has been a staple in our live sets since Vheissu came out ten years ago, and it’s something I really look forward to playing every night.
Fluctuat nec mergitur is a Latin saying that translates to “Tossed but never sunk,” and it’s a motto of sorts for many Parisians. Dominique Revert, the club’s co-manager who was not present the night of the shootings, conjures it now and says it will be Le Bataclan’s raison d’etre moving forward. “It will reopen, no question about it,” he says. “Hearts will be heavy for a few months, a few years. But we will reopen. We will not surrender.”
