Mila Kunis was already damn near perfect before this day began, but as I type this I think she’s even hotter. How can that be possible? She rescues this UK reporter who’s nervous as hell during a press junket, and she shows why she’s the hottest babe EVER. This isn’t an interview; it’s a genuine conversation between a novice reporter about his buddies and Mila who loves the uniqueness of his unpolished ways. Watch it over at Grantland.
I caught some sheeeee-ite from people on Twitter and text about me tweeting the “Call me Maybe/Head Like a Hole” mashup, “Call Me a Hole.” I think it’s very well done, using the pop music with Reznor’s angst delivery make it a beautiful, hellish marriage. Watch/listen below.
Eric Clapton’s full stream of his new album “Old Sock” is now out. I really like the single, “Gotta Get Over,” which is only one of two originals on the album. This is likely his last record and tour, as he said a few days ago that he was planning on retiring at 70, just two years from now. Hey, it worked well for KISS.
Oakland’s garage/60’s doo-wop heros are back in Shannon and the Clams with a new track, “Rip Van Winkle.” Stream, download and maybe turn to 11. The new record Dreams in the Rat House will be out 05/21 on Hardly Art
The Santa Cruz Blues Festival sounds awesome. Listen to this bill blues lovers! Steve Miller, Jimmie Vaughan), Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Sonny Landreth, Oakland act the California Honey Drops, Texas blues from Lou Ann Barton, James Hunter and Carolyn Wonderland. More acts are expected to be announced. It’s happening May 25 and 26 at Aptos Village Park. Tickets go on sale tomorrow 3/6 here.
Last, but not least...the new Iggy and the Stooges track, "Burn." Their new album Ready to Die out April 30th via Fat Possum.
Also, let's throw in this performance of John Fogerty and Foo Fighters or Sound City Players or whatever you want to call them on Jimmy Kimmel. This is actually a preview from Fogerty's "Wrote a Song For Everyone" where he will do several duets of his CCR classics. "Fortunate Son" with the Foos will open the album. I thought Grohl hit all the notes, but Fogerty seemed to take awhile to warm up. He usually destroys this song live, and didn't last night. Take a look.
