Review: Breaking A Monster, Growing Up at the Speed of a Double Bass Kick Pedal

Three young boys from Brooklyn, NY - Malcolm Brickhouse, Jared Dawkins and Alex Atkins- inspired by entrance music played for wrestlers at events and theme songs of their favorite anime shows started their own metal band, Unlocking the Truth   Despite a history of talented African American musicians and bands rocking it out throughout the decades, from Chuck Berry to Jimi Hendrix to Living Colour the notion of an African American hard rock/metal band is still alien if not disregarded as a novelty. At least that is what some first thought of Unlocking the Truth when their videos of street performances in Times Square popped up on YouTube a handful of years ago.    Ambitious and talented at their young age their videos racked up...

Jim Carrey’s Top 5 Performances

  • Cineplex
The stretchy-faced comedian has come a long, long way from being a zany standout player on TV’s "In Living Colour," using his manic energy and physical brand of humour to win big at the box office some 20 years ago and continuing to make wildly imaginative, just plain weird and sometimes oddly moving movies.

His latest, Dumb and Dumber To, offers a return to the comedian’s roots as the Dumb to Jeff Daniels’ Dumber (or is it the other way around?) in the Farrelly Brothers' comedy. Carrey resumes the role of Lloyd Christmas, twenty years after his first cross-country escapade with Harry Dunne. The loveable buffoons are back with a mission to seek out Harry’s estranged offspring. If the trailer is any indication, Carrey will be using his elastic features and love of broad, physical comedy to tell the tale.

With the film's imminent release, it proved a

Teddy Sears mastered his 'Sex'-ual education early

Teddy Sears mastered his 'Sex'-ual education early
He’s no womanizer like his Masters of Sex character Dr. Austin Langham, but Teddy Sears has had an appreciation for the female form for some time now—as long as there’s no food involved.

Sears admits he didn’t get what all the fuss over 9 1/2 Weeks’ iconic refrigerator scene was about: “That scene when all the foodstuffs come out? You lost me. That’s when I turned it off.” Then again, he was only 9 or 10 years old at the time.

It’s unlikely the same could be said of Langham if he had come of age during Kim Basinger’s controversy-stirring prime.

Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea: Why I Didn’t Play Live During Halftime

The longtime member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers didn’t have his bass guitar plugged in during their Super Bowl halftime performance, leading many to believe it wasn’t live. Now he’s taking to Twitter to tell his fans that he wasn’t trying to trick them.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers joined Bruno Mars on stage for the Feb. 2 Super Bowl halftime performance and it was epic. The band jumped around with Bruno and The Hooligans, putting on an impressive show. But now fans feel fooled after realizing Flea‘s guitar wasn’t plugged in, but he’s promising his loyal followers that it wasn’t done to deceive anyone.

Red Hot Chili Peppers Rocked At Super Bowl, Even If They Weren’t Live

Critics have accused the Red Hot Chili Peppers of not performing live during the Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 3, but I still think they put on an amazing show either way!

From Beyonce to Britney, some of the world’s biggest pop stars have been criticized for not performing live — but has their lip syncing really made their performances any less entertaining? Some very observant Twitter users put a damper on the Red Hot Chili Peppers‘s Super Bowl performance when they noted that Flea‘s bass guitar wasn’t even plugged into anything. Obviously this isn’t the kind of “unplugged” performance the world wants to hear, but regardless, I was thrilled to see that the aging rockers still know how to put on a helluva show!

Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers put on a stellar halftime show during an otherwise tedious Super Bowl, but were Rhcp performing live? According to some noted guitar experts, the answer is a solid no.

Despite some initial hesitation, the world seemed to thoroughly embrace Bruno Mars‘ Super Bowl halftime performance on Feb. 2. However, some very observant Twitter users put a dent in the Red Hot Chili Peppers portion of the performance when they noticed that Flea‘s bass guitar wasn’t even plugged in. Yikes.

Hat tip to Vulture, who picked up on Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid‘s Tweet about Flea not playing live. “That guitar is plugged into Nothing,” he wrote, as the band took the stage with Mars for a rousing rendition of “Give It Away.”

WWE Raw Results & Review (2.12.13)

Welcome to this week’s results and review of WWE Raw. The first Raw of December is under way.

The show opens with “Cult of Personality” by Living Colour playing and Cm Punk making his way down the aisle and to the squared circle as we see a replay of The Shield attacking Punk last week. Punk grabs a microphone and questions why The Shield might have attacked him last Monday night. He said last week he questioned Triple H, which is obviously why he was attacked by Triple H’s “boys” last week. Punk says he doesn’t want anything to do with The Authority. Punk says he prides himself on being one of the “biggest anti-authority guys” in WWE history. Stephanie McMahon’s music cuts Punk off and she makes her way to the stage area with a smile across her face. Stephanie says that she hoped Punk

‘WWE Raw’ Results & Review (4.11.13)

Welcome to this week’s results and review of Monday Night Raw.

The show begins with Living Colour’s “Cult of Personality” hitting and Cm Punk making his way down the aisle to a tremendous pop from the fans. We see a short clip of last week’s Raw when Punk and Daniel Bryan were separately attacked by The Wyatt Family. The Wyatt’s make their entrance and Punk’s opponent tonight is Luke Harper, who is accompanied by Bray and Rowan. Harper uses his brawling to keep Punk down, while Punk attempts to get technical, only to be beaten down by the unorthodox offence of Harper. The fans chant “Cm Punk” as Harper continued the beat-down on the “straight-edge saviour”. Punk regains control with a dive from the ring to the outside onto Harper. Punk finds himself on the ground again, being choked by the boot of Luke Harper,

Eminem is a Rap God

Eminem's 'Rap God' is a reminder that the Hip Hop world has white artists as relevant and exciting as Kendrick, Kanye and Drake. Kind of like the band Living Colour and the late Jimi Hendrix's guitar virtuosity in the typically white boy game of hard rock. Fresh takes have tweaked the genre on its ear since the Beastie Boys broke on the scene in the 1980s. Pride of Detroit, Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem showed that a facile tongue and quick witted mind can show up the best of them, perhaps inspiring the South African hip hop/rap act Die Antwoord, whose electrifying performances and avante garde videos defy the typical rapper tropes too. Eminem's latest single “Rap God," has him

Review: Wrestlemania Xxix

Normal 0 false false false En-gb X-none X-none MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

Wrestlemania. The jewel in the WWE's crown, the Superbowl of sweaty men in tights suplexing each other in the squared circle, and quite possibly the greatest show on earth. Wait, come back, I'm being serious here. Whatever your feelings about Mr McMahon, assuming you have any at all of course, you can't deny that he loves to put on a spectacle.

Ever since the first Wrestlemania took place way back in 1985 at Madison Square Garden featuring Hulk Hogan and Mr T facing off against 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper and Paul Orndorff, Mr McMahon has taken great pride in giving wrestling fans the biggest, loudest, most entertaining event in the annual sporting calendar. Returning to the New York metropolitan area for the fifth time on 7th April 2013, Wrestlemania Xxix graced the gargantuan MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, bringing with it a set
