(Welcome to Something for the Weekend. What follows is a list of some of our shows, some shows that aren’t our shows, and some links from around the Internet that we think you’ll enjoy. Give them a listen/glance. Thank you.)
STAR WARS EPISODE XV: You Must Remember This covers the wartime adventures of John Wayne. (Note: Did not contain any actual war.) The Sordidness Tracker confirms Karina’s account that Wayne was a dang hunk in his early Hollywood days.
A SEQUEL YOU CAN REFUSE: Karina was also a guest on Wolfpop’s The Canon podcast to debate whether or not the third Godfather film belongs in, er, the canon.
CAN I BUY SOME POT FROM YOU: Life of the Law focuses on all the hoops one has to jump through to legally sell marijuana.
THAT’S A PRETTY NICE HAIRCUT: Open Mike Eagle has part one of his chat with Daedelus about the LA underground scene on Secret Skin. He also covers Pavement’s “Cut Your Hair” and it put a big dumb grin on my face.
CELEBRITY REDUCTION PRAYER: That’s the name of Mike’s new single. Watch the video here:
THE MAN WHO BROKE THE MUSIC BUSINESS: His name is Dell Glover. The New Yorker has his story.
THE MAN WHO WALKED AWAY FROM THE MUSIC BUSINESS: His name is Bill Withers. Rolling Stone has his.
THE MAN WHO IS JUST REALLY DAMN GOOD AT CARTOON VOICES: His name is John DiMaggio. John Moe interviews him on this week’s special podcast-only edition of Wits.
THIS WEEK ON THE FRAME: A Mexican band pays tribute to Morrissey and The Smiths (Mexrrissey!), updates from CinemaCon, and new music from Tame Impala. Let’s close it out with “Elephant.”
