San Francisco was where Jt (aka Jeremiah “Terminator”) LeRoy claimed to have been abandoned by his “truckstop prostitute” mother after a cross-country road trip. After years purportedly on the street, involved in drugs and prostitution, he was encouraged at age 15 by a therapist to write “as a form of therapy.” As early as 1994, he began soliciting long-distance
This Michigan folk-influenced band was formed by a couple of Brother Rice High School alums that first made their name playing to college crowds in East Lansing, Grand Rapids and Ann Arbor.
Places, people and memories curated from a lifetime spent in Michigan have proved to be a strong foundation for the songwriting of lead singer Matthew Milia. The folky foursome even made a snapshot of Pontiac's now-abandoned Summit Place Mall (a total '90s mallrat destination) the cover for their second album, "Deadmalls and Nightfalls."
Now supporting their new third album, "Eternity of Dimming," Frontier Ruckus have turned all their musical tools -- banjo, singing saw and sweet melodies -- to one of the catchiest '90s anthems of all, Third Eye Blind's "Semi-Charmed Life.
A report written by the Daily Mail claimed that Theron, 37, had fallen for "Modern Family" actor Stonestreet.
"Charlize and Eric get along incredibly well," the Daily Mail quotes a source close to the actress as saying. "They started off as friends but things are blossoming between them." The paper adds, "Eric is down to earth and funny and Charlize thinks the world of him. It’s early days but they’re very fond of each other."
Stonestreet took to his Twitter to address the Theron romance rumors.
I wish people would stop spreading rumors that Charlize Theron and I are dating. Its starting to make Halle Berry jealous.
— Eric Stonestreet (@ericstonestreet) September 23, 2012
"She [Halle Berry] was so cold to me this morning when she saw these rumors," Stonestreet joked on the Emmy Awards red carpet.
Occupy Los Angeles announced on Sunday that an all-star lineup of musicians and activists will participate in a live discussion at the Villa Lounge in West Hollywood to discuss the entertainment industry's relationship with the national Occupy movement.
Already, music has intertwined itself with the growing movement. Stars such as Russell Simmons and Tom Morello have made their presence felt in a big way at New York's Zuccotti Park, the birth place of the Occupy Wall Street protests, and many more have spoken out in support of the self-styled 99% and their push for economic justice.
In October, folk legends Arlo Guthrie and Pete Seeger visited Occupy Wall Street,
"I hope it achieves its goals of starting new politics that are counter to the trend towards oligarchy that's been increasingly foisted on us these last few years," Jenkins says in a press release on the band's website.
"I think college students are going to come to terms with the unfairness of student loans, the hallowing out of jobs from finance based capitalism, and the depletion of public wealth," he continues. "When you take money out of politics, which is what Occupy Wall Street is about for me, you reverse these trends. This song is meant to encourage their participation.
Entitled "If There Ever Was A Time," the San Francisco alt-rock mainstay's newly released protest song kicks off with a bang--an audio clip taken from the gristly aftermath of a police-lobbed tear gas canister fracturing the skull of Iraq War veteran Scott Olsen at an infamous Occupy Oakland protest.

From there, the U.C. Berkeley valedictorian (really) says Zuccotti Park is everywhere and calls on the youth of America to take to the streets--all done in Third Eye Blind's trademark glossy post-grunge style.
The track can be streamed or downloaded on the band's Facebook page.

A friend of Eric told Life & Style magazine, "The two have a lot in common. He's a farmer who grows all his own vegetables and Charlize grew up on a farm in South Africa. The two like to escape Hollywood and go to his farm in upstate New York."
Eric, 45, has starred opposite Will Smith in "Six Degrees of Separation" and played Donald Sutherland's disaffected son in 1994 science-fiction film "The Puppet Masters".
Charlize, 35, dated "Superhero Movie" actor Craig Bierko and Third Eye Blind lead singer Stephan Jenkins before embarking on a nine-year relationship with Stuart.
While the pair never married, Stuart often spoke about how he considered Charlize his wife. He said, "I
According to Life & Style magazine via Just Jared, Theron and Thal become bonded because they share something in common. A pal of Thal told the mag, "The two have a lot in common. He's a farmer who grows all his own vegetables, and Charlize grew up on a farm in South Africa. The two like to escape Hollywood and go to his farm in upstate New York."
Theron and Thal, however, haven't confirmed or denied the dating speculation. Beside then-boyfriend of nine years Townsend, "Superhero Movie" actor Craig Bierko and Third Eye Blind lead singer Stephan Jenkins are among Theron's past lovers.

It's no secret that All Time Low's Alex Gaskarth has fallen deep into a summer bromance with fellow tour mate Third Eye Blind frontman Stephan Jenkins on this year's Bamboozle Roadshow. The tour itself ended this past weekend, but thanks to the Internets, various videos of the two performing 3Eb's seminal '90s radio anthem "Jumper" have surfaced. This past weekend, the two talked to MTV News about how the collaboration was conceived on the Roadshow.
"Everybody's sort of been jumping on stage for other bands' sets and that's kind of one of the things that have made this tour such a good experience for the bands," Gaskarth explained of the tour's atmosphere. "As I said, I'm a fan of your band," Gaskarth told Jenkins, who has cited Third Eye Blind as one of his major influences, "and I got to come out and sing a song with you guys.

The eclectic traveling carnival that is the Bamboozle Roadshow came to an end over the weekend in Boston, but the "bro"-bonds that were formed on tour will go on. MTV News followed the action all week, catching up with all of the acts, from pop-punkers Boys Like Girls and Good Charlotte to electro-funksters Lmfao and 3Oh!3.
While the acts were diverse, one common theme among the musicians was their near-unanimous tendency to geek out over fellow headliners Third Eye Blind, with many calling the band one of the biggest influences on the current generation of rock groups.

All Time Low are having a pretty good summer. The boys from Baltimore have been spending the last month on the Bamboozle Roadshow, where they've met some of their idols, gotten love from their legions of fans and, as the band puts it, done a lot of "bro-in' down."
Atl took a break from the sweltering heat at the Philadelphia stop of the Roadshow last Sunday to talk to MTV News about the experience of traveling cross-country with Boys Like Girls, Lmfao, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan and Third Eye Blind (among many others). "It's been great, so much fun," lead singer Alex Gaskarth gushed. "All the bands have been hanging out, bro-in' down, as they say."
Summer festivals in America are typically dominated by one-off weekend shows,
