Rob Zombie is working on a new movie titled 31 as well as a new album.
It sounds fuckiní weird, man. Thatís a really good thing. Right now Iím by myself in the studio; the rest of the bandís not here yet but, yeah, theyíll all come up here later. Itís going good. Iíll work on that for about a month and get as far as I can get. Then in July we have a little bit of a break where Iíll probably finish up the record, and then we have some more touring.

Yeah, I know I'm a nerd ... but this data looking at "the skip button" and how it's used and how often on Spotify fascinates me.
First, lets look at how often a song is skipped within the first five seconds of play. I call these quick skips. The likelihood that a song will be skipped within the first five seconds is an astounding 24.14%. Nearly one quarter of all song plays are abandoned in the first 5 seconds. The likelihood that a song will be skipped within the first thirty seconds rises to 35.05%. The chance that a song is skipped before it ends is a whopping 48.6%. Yes, the odds are only slightly better than 50/50 that a song will be played all the way to the end.

The Mars Volta's Cedric Bixler-Zavala sounds off on recent vinyl reissues for the band -- commenting, "some idiot is pocketing the money" and "there will be a proper reissue of early Volta records [...] when we do release the early volta records they will be far superior in packaging and we will get the money."

Saosin played one of their reunion shows with Anthony Green tonight. You can hit the replies to see the setlist (two new, unnamed songs were played). I saw a few tweets fly by about how epic and amazing and once in a lifetime the show was. Got me thinking: is it just the pains of nostalgia, or isn't that what each show a few years back felt like? I'm glad a new generation is getting to experience some of the excitement I remember about my early 20s. Oh, and a reliable source recently informed me that Saosin basically has an entire full-length of instrumentals already recorded and waiting for vocals. They're quite good. But, more on that later.

Long time staff member, Lueda Alia, wrote her inaugural post today over at her new personal blog, Alueda.net. The topic is one we've touched on a variety of times on our website (most recently in the post about what to do in college to prepare for a career in the music industry) and it reaches through a variety of at-large societal issues: success, competition, internships, hard-work, and collaboration. Ms. Alia makes an interesting argument that interns are not all that different than artists being poorly compensated for "exposure" at major festivals:
The way many interns are treated is no different than the way musicians are treated when they work for years for the chance to perform...

The first time I cheated on my wife, my interpretation of morality was now convenient for me. I felt less guilty if I decided, ďWell, marriage isnít a real thing, because Christianity isnít real. God isnít real. Therefore, marriage is just a stupid piece of paper with the government.Ē I thought of myself as super-scholarly at the time. ďMy academic pursuit has led me to this.Ē I was sincere to a certain degree, but we all hear what we want to hear to justify our actions.

A statement on True-to-You from Morrissey claims the "verified" account on Twitter is not him.
I would like to stress that I do not have either a Twitter or a Facebook account. I gather that a Twitter account has been opened in my name - as 'It's Morrissey' - but it is NOT Morrissey. I do not know who has opened this recent Twitter account, but please be aware that it is bogus. That's, of course, if you should remotely care.

In a recent article, Rick Burch of Jimmy Eat World, revealed they'll be trying to release earlier material and singles on vinyl in the near future.
Burch said the members of Jimmy Eat World are now working on re-releasing some of their early singles and albums in a different format to satisfy younger fans. Yep, Jimmy Eat World has been around long enough to have young adult fans just now discovering their sound. The format for the re-releases wonít be mp3, but vinyl LP disc. In rock and roll, everything comes around again if its coolness quotient transcends the hipness du jour. Hence Jimmy Eat World as a vinyl band for millennial listeners.
