FREE MP3 Download – ‘Idle Hands’ by Shane Tutmarc

October 20, 2009 Leave a comment

For a limited time, you can download ‘Idle Hands’ by Shane Tutmarc off the album ‘Idle Hands / Death & Texas’ from Amazon. (Incidentally, you can also download Death & Texas, another track from Shane Tutmarc, for FREE from Amazon)

Click here to download ‘Idle Hands’! And here to download ‘Death & Texas’

I really like the song – it has a really chill vibe, ‘ya know? Makes me feel like I’m back in some dark smoky bar being impossibly chic 😉

Anyway, I found a live recording of ‘Idle Hands’ for 90.3 FM Seattle KEXP Radio that I’m also really enjoying right now… Have a listen…

Adam Lambert’s ‘Time for Miracles’ from 2012 Now Available For Download

October 20, 2009 2 comments

UPDATE : Here’s an alternate version of ‘Time For Miracles’ that was playing on the end credits of the movie 2012! (Here’s a rip DL Link)

** Time For Miracles is currently streaming on AdamOfficial.Com **

So, Adam Lambert’s single ‘Time for Miracles’ from the end-of-the-world movie “2012” is now available for download on iTunes (US) and on Amazon for $1.29.

I think that fans should keep in mind that this isn’t really Adam’s song – he’s just the hired gun to sing the theme song for a big-budget hollywood end-of-the-world movie – and does he sing! Adam has stated again and again that we can expect something else on his debut CD.

I for one am looking forward to seeing the movie’s big explosions accompanied by Adam’s vocals on steroids. Rob Cavallo allows Adam to go theatrical to his heart’s content after the 3 minute mark, and I just love how Adam’s voice actually becomes like another musical instrument with the vocal-layering that is done. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again (since I’m unoriginal like that) – CHILLS!

And for those who are complaining about the cheesy lyrics, the song actually has a tragic back-story. ‘Time for Miracles’ was written by the musician-couple Alain Johannes and Natasha Shneider – and yes – it’s made poignant by that Natasha died of cancer. Knowing that, I know that I take away a little something else from the lyrics and know just exactly what kind of miracle they were praying for.

Entertainment Weekly’s Coverage of Michael Jackson’s ‘This Is It’

October 20, 2009 Leave a comment

Last Dance

His tragic death last June shook the world. Now Michael Jackson is returning to the stage – and the screen – thanks to some revealing raw footage, a director he trusted, and the resurrecting power of his adoring fans. A first look at and exclusive photographs of the making of This Is It and the precarious last days of a pop culture legend.
By Josh Rottenberg

It’s a great issue, very well written by Josh Rottenberg, and with really good pictures – I’m buying a copy. You should too.

After the jump, susie (mediocrechick) from ONTD managed to get some scans to share before we all buy our copies 🙂

What Happened to Clay Aiken’s Voice?

October 20, 2009 15 comments

Clay Aiken recently held a mini-concert for the NIP 2009 Gala in Raleigh NC, and some of the fan-taken videos were uploaded to YouTube. Maybe the fans shouldn’t have done that, since Clay sounds terrible.

Here he is singing “As Long As We’re Here” and it is truly painful to listen to this. What happened to Clay? Did he have a cold or something? Does he smoke? He was barely in tune in many, many parts and was horrendous at the 1 min or so mark (strained and off key, to boot!).

I also remember watching Clay singing a part of “Moon River” a long, long time ago for some ABC interview on him, and wishing to hear the whole thing. Well, be careful what you wish for – Clay sings ‘Moon River’ and while he sounds better here, his voice is pretty unsteady still. What happened to his pipes of steel?
