Another fantastic blog by Brendan Kelly:

Iíve been rejected by everyone from Clint Eastwood to CAA to New Line to MTV and on and on down the line. Itís always a pretty good story and beyond that, itís a blast to come up with something and get all excited about the fame and fortune that itís gonna bring me, and then coast back down to earth once I realize that Iíve been rejected again.

The Instagram account FakeWatchBusta is dedicated to calling out celebrities that are sporting fake/replica watches.
FakeWatchBusta's list of victims so far includes rappers like Soulja Boy, American football player Garrett Wolfe, and even multi-millionaire Mohamed Hadid. Despite his seeming talent for spotting replicas, the 30-year-old is not professionally connected to the luxury watch industry.

The Foo Fighters will be releasing their new album this fall. The release will coincide with Dave's new HBO Show.
One song was recorded in each city, every song featuring local legends sitting in, and every lyric written in an unprecedented experimental style: Dave held off on putting down words until the last day of each session, so as to be inspired by the experiences, interviews and personalities that became part of the process.

Welp, the website tried to become self-aware this morning -- sorry about that. Fixed the bug in the software. So, hey, speaking of advertising: Japanese beverage maker Otsuka is sending a 1 kilogram titanium can filled with powdered sports drink to the moon.
The specially designed canister, which contains a shipment of Otsuka's Pocari Sweat powder, will mark a disturbing new frontier for humanity: the first commercial product delivered to another world for marketing purposes.

Bleachers will release Strange Desire on July 15th.
i let go of a lot right then and started to follow what i now call a strange desire. its the 2 words that perfectly title what this bleachers album is as a documentation of my life as i can remember it at this point. or better put, as i see it from this point. its been a bizarre and wonderful decade (particularly the past 2 years). a lot of great things have happened but its also been strange. this album speaks to all of that. i never kept a diary over the past year of being away and thinking about my life as it has unfolded - instead i wrote this album.
