    A Journal of Musical Things ^ | April 27, 2015 | Alan Cross
    Earlier this year, a new law went into effect in Canada that required ISPs to report instances of suspected piracy among their customers, the so-called “notice and notice” system. The result is that a bunch of foreign companies–third parties not affiliated with the actual rights holders of the material that may (or may not) being pirated–have been sending emails to Canadians demanding that they pay up now or face massive legal consequences. It’s been reported that hundreds of thousands of these warnings have been sent to Canadians. First things first: Canadians are NOT obligated to pay. Demanding a cash settlement...

    The man behind such classics as "Keep on Pushing" and "Superfly" will be the focus of upcoming projects, including new recordings, DVDs & memorabilia. Curtis Mayfield’s storied music career will mark its 60th anniversary next year. To celebrate the occasion -- and Mayfield’s still influential legacy -- the late soul icon’s estate is ramping up multiple projects. The slate includes a website, new recordings, merchandise, DVDs and a documentary. “It’s taken some time to put things in order,” says Altheida Mayfield, Mayfield's widow. “Now it’s time to celebrate and re-evaluate his legacy; to let him touch people’s hearts again.

    A Journal of Musical Things ^ | April 24, 2015 | Alan Cross
    For all of us, we have a musical sweet spot in our lives. It happens roughly between the ages of 14 and 24, from the time we enter high school to the time life begins to intrude with its demands of jobs, mortgages and families. During that period, almost nothing is more important to us than music. It not only becomes a personal obsession but something we use to proclaim our identity to the rest of the world. But after about 24, we just don’t have the time (and often the interest) to indulge in our musical passions as much...

    Happy birthday, Glen Campbell! The singer was born on this day, April 22, in 1936. Campbell was born the seventh of 12 children to John Campbell, a sharecropper, and his wife Carrie. After his uncle, known as “Boo,” taught Campbell to play the guitar as a child, the future star relocated to Albuquerque, N.M., as a teenager, to play in his uncle’s band. In 1958, Campbell formed his own band, the Western Wranglers, and in 1960, he relocated to Los Angeles to become a session musician. Campbell’s debut album, Big Bluegrass Special, was released in 1962 on Capitol Records, but...

    American Idol ratings hit a series low last week, dropping to a 1.4 in the desirable 18-49 demographic. Even when head to head competition with The Voice was no longer a threat (the rival show aired a special results show at 8 pm) the numbers stayed flat this week. Once the highly rated FOX show, Empire left the Wednesday night lineup, the show began to falter. The Wrap notes, however, that Idol is still ahead of the final season of the cancelled X Factor. Heading into this week the two regular editions of “Idol” were averaging a combined 2.9 rating...

    So you've bought a turntable with hopes of hearing that warm vinyl sound, but you don't have a record collection just yet. What to do? If you're Jesse England, you 'cheat' using digital tunes. He recently built the Universal Record, a device that lets any Bluetooth audio source work with a record player by vibrating a vinyl disc. You can leave the needle stationary if you want relatively clean output, but get it moving and you'll hear crackles and pops -- a bit surreal when you're listening to songs from your phone. This is an artistic commentary on the "kinetic...

Specifically, they needed a bad guy to costar with Michael Douglas, who plays the murderous multimillionaire out to kill an innocent hunting guide played by Jeremy Irvine. Requirements for the role included beauty, speed, agility and toughness, and the ability to withstand long shooting days in New Mexico desert near Four Corners. The casting call led them to a most unusual candidate. Douglas' evil partner in crime is played by a Mercedes 6x6.

    For over a decade, the rap superstar has made music that pushes boundaries, courts controversy and divides critics. Now, the man who has compared himself to Jesus and Steve Jobs just wants to make clothes for the masses. On a Sunday afternoon in early February, Kanye West was in a makeshift conference room at the downtown New York showroom of Adidas, mapping out his vision for fashion, and everything else, too. It was three days after the presentation of his first sportswear collection, Yeezy Season 1, at New York Fashion Week. Produced in collaboration with Adidas Originals, Yeezy was the...

    The music died because Buddy Holly merely wanted what every touring musician wants: to do laundry. Shoved into unheated buses on a “Winter Dance Party” tour in 1959, Holly — tired of rattling through the Midwest with dirty clothes — chartered a plane on Feb. 3 to fly from Clear Lake, Iowa, to Fargo, N.D., where he hoped he could make an appointment with a washing machine. Joining him on the plane were Ritchie Valens and, after future country star Waylon Jennings gave up his seat, J.P. Richardson, a.k.a. “the Big Bopper.” Taking off in bad weather with a pilot...

    I'm glad I went to see this movie. I almost didn't. I usually prefer movies with a more coherent storyline and message. I like dialog that is clear, cogent and concise. I approve of special effects that are both sublime and based in reality. I expect to see a straight line of cause and effect to some degree. Furious 7 is none of those things.

But one bobcat created an extraordinary fish tale when it pulled a shark out of the surf. The dramatic moment was caught on camera by John Bailey in Vero Beach, Florida, Monday night, when he was walking along Sebastian Inlet State Park. Bailey has not yet responded to a request for comment but he told local media that he saw the cat fishing in the surf. Suddenly, the cat leaped and dragged a shark three to four feet long (one...
