  • California Woman Who Tried to Sell a Moon Rock Wins Round Against NASA

    San Jose Mercury News ^ | April 14, 2017 | Liam Truchard
    Joann Davis had a moon rock. Yes, it was real. A gift, she said, from Neil Armstrong to her late husband. She also had an ill son and the Lake Elsinore resident wanted to help with his medical care. So she contacted NASA about her intention to sell it. That led to a nightmare situation on May 19, 2011, when Davis stood in the parking lot of a Denny’s restaurant in pants soaked in urine, answering questions from a federal agent about a rice-sized piece of moon. “He kept saying, ‘You will be going to federal court, you will be...

    And he's offended by Donald Trump's haircut. The Who‘s frontman Roger Daltrey continues to be outspoken about his support for Brexit, or more like his support for England getting out of the EU. “We are getting out, and when the dust settles I think that it’ll be seen that it’s the right thing for this country to have done, that’s for sure,”..... ....The Who‘s frontman Roger Daltrey continues to be outspoken about his support for Brexit, or more like his support for England getting out of the EU. “We are getting out, and when the dust settles I think that...
  • Huh? NPR Blames ‘White Nostalgia’ for Trump on Classic Rock

    03/07/2017 8:24:01 AM PST · by rktman · 110 replies ^ | 3/6/2017 | Christian Toto
    Did you know your tax dollars support articles that all but label President Donald Trump racist? And suggest the same of your favorite singers, too? Consider a new pop culture “think piece” from NPR. The headline alone is all you need to read: “White Nostalgia Didn't Start With Trump — Just Look At Classic Rock” Suddenly, the soundtrack to our lives has been thrown under the bus, and we helped fund it. It begins, of course, with calling Trump’s signature appeal racist. For more than a year, Donald Trump has harped on white nostalgia. A hearkening back to a rosy,...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Add Nikki Sixx to the list of musicians who are not enamored with President Donald Trump. The former Motley Crue and current Sixx:A.M. bassist recently revealed his political leanings. Earlier this month, Sixx was participating in a Facebook Live chat (embedded above) and wound up talking about “Rise,” a song from last year’s Prayers for the Damned. Sixx said that it “was inspired by the environment of the presidential campaign and what was going on in the world, and we were just saying, ‘We need to rise up. We can be better than this.'” Sixx said that he didn’t believe...

    Rolling Stone ^ | 9/5/16 | Daniel Kreps
    To mark what would have been Freddie Mercury's 70th birthday, Queen guitarist and actual astrophysicist Brian May announced that an asteroid orbiting around Mars and Jupiter has been named after the singer. ..."Where is Freddie’s Asteroid? It's in the main Asteroid Belt, out between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, and is about 3 and a half km across," May continued. "It's like a cinder in space as many of these asteroids are," said May. "You need a pretty decent telescope to see it. It’s just a dot of light but it’s a very special dot of light and maybe...

    Are you sure you want your MTV? On its 35th birthday, a quick glimpse at the network shows it’s hardly what it once was. While change isn’t always easy... it’s not always needed either. What started as a network dedicated to airing music videos and sharing insight on the topic has transformed into a smorgasbord of reality shows that teens who listen to Justin Bieber are glued to. It’s a far cry from the station’s days of “120 Minutes” and “Daria” and Kurt Loder staring into your soul telling you what you needed to know at the top of every...
