  1. Throb!!

    1. Vee

      Vee

      "Throb" is on the janet. album from 1993. It was released 25 years ago. Janet performed it at the Billboards in the video above.

      As in an official video and the whole thing that comes with that a la a single. Other than this...the only performance of it to this day that I've seen was the one she did on SNL when Heather Locklear hosted. In high school.

      It's been performed live quite a bit on multiple tours. And it was released on a major album. That's what makes it a released track. Unreleased means literally unreleased to the public at all, not never promoted as a single with a music video. If that were the case half of every musician's catalog would be unreleased.

  2. It's time for another Americans status update for folks who don't watch it: If Keri Russell doesn't win an Emmy for this season there is no god.

      Oh wow. :o Poor Whitney.

      I just saw this online a half-hour ago and Good Lord, the tragedy never ends!

  3. Now Batman's butler Alfred is getting a prequel TV show. That's fine. I hate it but that's fine, 2018

      She seems nuts. The alleged story about Harmon does not rise to the level of harassment for me.

      If you are talking about bringing the dog onset after he bit someone, I agree. If Harmon did that, I think that's selfish, jackass behavior, but it's not harassment. The problem for me is that she's eluding to bad behavior on social media, casting a net of suspicion over so many people by not just spitting it out. That's not ok.

      She apparently has a bizarre history, to say the least. But maybe I'm just biased by seeing her play a goth girl at least 15 years out of date.

      It's a good thing I wasn't there as I wouldn't have been able to deal with some idiot calling Stevie Nicks a bitch and claiming all of their success over the last 40 years has been from Lindsey. I'm not surprised to hear Christine wasn't involved with the firing, as they seem to be somewhat close. I hope she won't be leaving again as well.

      Those people are too damn old to pull that kind of nonsense.  Now I understand Grace Slick when she says there's a time when rock stars should get their asses off the stage.

      This is Fleetwood Mac so I feel confident they'll patch it up again eventually. Hopefully before they're all dead.

  4. Whoo! This year's cancellation pool is a bloodbath.

    1. DRW50

      I know you were a big fan of The Exorcist. I heard a lot of good things about Lucifer too (although I heard it wasn't as good this season). And I really enjoyed B99 when I watched the first few seasons. So much gone so that we can get Tim Allen grunting and playing the martyr as Fox tries to chase a Roseanne demographic. I will not be watching.

    2. Vee

      Vee

      Roseanne is at least, as many critics have said even this week, a complicated and messy show with dueling viewpoints. It's a flashpoint but its heart is in the right place so far IMO. But Last Man Standing is the worst. And they do indicate a troubling trend.

       

      All my friends watch B99 - I think there is a good chance Netflix or Hulu may pick it up at which point I may finally watch it all. Same with The Expanse's chances - it shocks me SyFy cancelled it. They've been making such a push to be taken seriously as a prestige network lately, but cancelled that and passed on the big Tremors pilot with Kevin Bacon - probably because they've decided they still want to play it cheap.

       

      The Exorcist got one more season than I expected and was very faithful to the source materials. It has a slim chance of pick-up on say, Hulu, but I just hope people discover the two seasons there.

      I just saw that the Supernatural female-led spinoff with Kim Rhodes also wasn't picked up. Last year's attempts to push a conservative viewpoint mostly failed for the networks yet we seem to be going there again. Oh well. 

  5. Can anyone remember the last time we had a TV star debacle as big as the Lethal Weapon one with Clayne Crawford? I don't think he'll be working again any time soon.

      The most recent one I can think of is Charlie Sheen vs. Chuck Lorre.

  7. This is cute - Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard promotes Carol Burnett's Netflix show, debuting tomorrow:

      Amazing! LOL. Love it.

  9. The six seasons of The Americans is the longest, quietest, most patient and methodical build of dread I've ever seen on TV.

      It ceases to be a thrill ride very fast, lol. It becomes a very, very slow and measured show quickly, and a very good one. Any other network would've cancelled it with its soft numbers as a sleeper critical hit, but FX was classy to stick by it and make it clear two years ago that they would be renewing it until it chose to conclude.

    2. YRBB

      YRBB

      That's fine, too. That's the impression I had of it, which is why I was surprised to see how fast things move so far. Nice to hear FX really committed to it. You don't often hear stories like that.

      According to them, their other, bigger shows (including their tacky sitcom deals like that Charlie Sheen syndicated thing) paid for it and other smaller ones.

      I'm continuing to ignore him as he's trying to provoke everyone to put the spotlight on himself. Also, he's 'not too right up in the ole noggin'  as someone I know would say.

      Dragon blood?  Reminds me of Charlie Sheen and his rants about tiger blood.  I'm pretty sure that Kanye has bipolar (like Roseanne).  I'm not sure how I feel about these stars who have public meltdowns.  It seems like they are being exploited on the one hand, but the fact that they have megaphones is disturbing.

      I guess it's the new "any show with more than 9-13 episodes is automatically bad and bloated." I hate the word "manspreading." 

  12. Prince's estate releases his original recording of "Nothing Compares 2 U":

      Yes, I saw this earlier today.  I've heard him sing this song on other occasions but I enjoyed the sweet simplicity of this version. For a moment, he was alive again. Just for a few brief minutes, I forgot that he was gone.

    2. Vee

      It's a fantastic version, but my favorite is probably the wildly baroque take done by short-lived Prince-created outfit The Family. Though Sinead O'Connor's is of course the classic.

      The Rosie Gaines version was always really deeply soulful.

  13. The viral sensation and crossover we all knew we'd need someday: The Golden Girls and Stranger Things. https://twitter.com/BenjaminJS/status/986037365838823424

  14. In the wake of Weinstein and the Cosby retrial, I can't recommend UK miniseries National Treasure on Hulu enough - a bone-chilling mystery and drama with Robbie Coltrane, Julie Walters and Andrea Riseborough. It's back with a second series and unrelated story that is apparently good, but S1 is what stuck in my bones for weeks.

  15. Lindsay Buckingham is not dead! But he has quit and/or been fired from Fleetwood Mac, in keeping with the group's proud history of messy drama: https://pitchfork.com/news/lindsey-buckingham-quits-fleetwood-mac/?mbid=social_twitter

      I love Fleetwood Mac as much as they love their drama. Some people just never change. Good for Neil Finn and Mike Campbell though, getting to join the roster of 500 Mac members. I wonder if this means I'll get to hear Stevie singing Don't Dream It's Over.

    2. DRW50

      DRW50

      I also just found out about this.  I guess Twitter does have some positive uses.

      I'm sure he'll be back again if they're not all dead first. But I would like to see the full line-up on tour with my mom someday.

  16. Wild Wild Country on Netflix is incredibly fascinating.

  17. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine still holds up and was ahead of its time.
