Ever heard of Lights Over Paris? Yeah, me either. However, apparently the lead singer, Robert Mawhinney, has managed to scam not only banks but everyone into thinking he has all the money in the world for tours, albums, and videos. No one came to the shows but they were sold out since he would buy all the tickets. And even weider? This guy started all of this because he really wanted to be the next Blink-182.

You can stream a new song from Unwed here.
Unwed brings together several veterans from 1990s post hardcore: bassist Jason Black hails from Hot Water Music, vocalist Neltie Penman was once HWM's tour manager, drummer Jeff Gensterblum played in Small Brown Bike, and guitarist Arty Shepard performs in Primitive Weapons. "Made Of", their first single out on No Idea, sounds like sailor-tattooed road warriors growing up without growing old.

Insane Clown Posse is suing the FBI over classifying the "juggalos" as a gang.
Horrorcore-rap duo Insane Clown Posse, along with four fans, are suing the Department of Justice and the FBI, demanding that the agencies purge the fan name "Juggalos" from their list of gang members. "Organized crime is by no means part of the Juggalo culture," reads the complaint, filed this morning in federal court in Detroit.

In 1963 Studs Terkel interviewed a 21 year old Bob Dylan, the recording on this can be found in the replies.
Bob Dylan is a notoriously tough person to interview and that's definitely the case here, even this early in his life as a public persona. On the other hand, Terkel is a veteran interviewer, one of the best ever, and he seems genuinely impressed with the young man who was just 21 at the time and had but one record of mainly covers under his belt. Terkel does a good job of keeping things on track as he expertly gets out of the way and listens while gleaning what he can from his subject. It's an interesting match-up.

Last year Kickstarter saw 3 million people pledge $480 million dollars.
About 89 percent of that money was given to successful projects, and there were also more of those than ever too, with 19,911 projects getting funded. But while the numbers show growth for Kickstarter, that growth has dramatically slowed from its previous year. Between 2011 and 2012, pledges rose by over $200 million, while last year, they rose just $160 million.

The Seeking have broken up.
Hello everyone. It is with much sadness to announce that The Seeking is no longer a band. Too many members decided to part ways and it left us with no choice but to call it quits. I know this happens all the time with bands and we were hoping to keep this band alive and continue making music we love but we just couldn't. We can't thank you guys enough whether it was buying our CD, merch or simply singing EVERY lyric to each song we played. You guys are literally the best and you all hold a special place in each of our hearts. The only way we can think of repaying you is coming back strong and writing music that relates to you more than anything and playing tons...

Hello, again. For those of you who don't know, I'm Cody, I'm the comedy staff member around here. I was for a little bit of last year, until I took a bit of a sabbatical to deal with my own comedic career. But I'm back now, though, albeit in a slightly lesser manner. News posting will be slim, unless I feel like they're topics/issues that definitely need to be seen by a larger audience. Gone completely are my album reviews, which shouldn't be too missed, since I only did like five. Coming back in full force, however, are my comedian interviews. I'm making time to fit these into my schedule, because 1.) I love learning from comedians, and 2.) Their unique perspectives almost always...

This letter from the editor recently posted by Billboard's Bill Werde is a great read. It addresses, amongst other things, how many in the media don't know how to cover music in general if there's no controversy.
And our conversation basically amounted to: It was boring because nothing controversial happened. He expected to shrink coverage of the AMAs. Before I went to sleep that night, I was told that none of the shows planning longer segments would be doing them. It's a sign of the times that celebrity trumps actual culture on TV. If Miley Cyrus cavorts with a foam finger, Im a talking head on the topic for the next three months. If she does a superb job singing a great song like...

Hey, everyone. I know it's been awhile since you've heard from me on the news page. I'll deal with that in the morning with some new comedy content for you all. For now, though, I felt this article was the right way to end my sabbatical. Immense social everything site reddit is having a little bit of an internal struggle between their massive default subreddit /r/funny, which is a fairly self-explanatory name (though if you look at its content, it's really not) and the subreddit /r/standupshots, which features comedians posting their own material in easy-to-read imgur format. While not one of the biggest communities on the site, /r/standupshots is one of the most dedicated, but the...

The Manchester Evening News stated that Morrissey "claims he was "touched inappropriately by a teacher at school."' Morrissey has stated via True-to-You that this is false.
Morrissey has never made such a claim. Furthermore, Morrissey does not use the word 'inappropriately' unless it is followed by an explanation of what an action might be inappropriate to. Morrissey is seeking legal advice on this matter.
