Trendy Towne, Southern California Sick and tired of everyone telling him his writing “sounds like an Onion article,” humor writer Dixon B. Tweenerlegs committed suicide yesterday by intentionally fighting a gorilla, which, ironically, was the exact subject of an Onion parody piece in October of 2009. Sheriff’s department spokesman Steve Hannah said Tweenerlegs’ mangled, feeble writer’s-body was found torn in two – the top half inside a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in Studio City, the bottom half draped over a table outside a Starbucks in West Hollywood – two places Tweenerlegs frequented.  “You don’t often see suicidal writer’s body parts…

Well, since we knew you were all holding your collective breaths on this one, the results are in:  Seinfeld is the greatest sitcom of all time, followed closely by… The Honeymooners? Well, so says the latest (and ridiculously flawed) poll from tired old Vanity Fair, who must sit around in their New York offices listening to Al Jolson records on their Victrolas. The results of this half-baked unprofessional survey (which supposedly had the help of mirth experts 60 Minutes) will be included in VF’s upcoming January 2013 “comedy issue,” with ringleader Judd Apatow – who is (surprise) promoting his new movie.…

Martha Davis strutted in heels onto the early new-wave scene in the late 1970s as part of The Motels – an intelligent, moody, yet still-catchy pop band. With her dark brunette 1940s femme-fatale style, Davis stood far apart from the squeaky, anemic, dyed-blonde lead singers of the day.  (And those were just the men.) The Motels didn’t perhaps have the gigantic career that some of their quirky contemporaries had, but semi-hits, Take the L (out of Lover), Suddenly, Last Summer, Total Control, and their biggest single Only the Lonely have cemented their sound into college-pop history.  Davis has continued to write,…

In this month’s Rock Cellar Magazine – affectionately dubbed “The Ringo Issue” – all of Ringo’s All-Starr bandmates talked to us about their favorite Beatles albums, and a rather surprising number of them included 1966’s Revolver.  Link HERE. Well coincidentally (or not?), just this month a brand spankin’ new Beatles book hit the shelves and Kindles™ – an in-depth analysis of (you guessed it) that legendary Beatles record.  Its title is Revolver: How The Beatles Reimagined Rock ‘N’ Roll. Rock Cellar Magazine got in touch with the book’s author Robert Rodriguez and asked him a lot of fun questions about…

Photographer (and musician) Henry Diltz has taken photographs of almost every notable rock musician and band from the 1960s and 70s. His iconic style practically defined the generation of classic album cover art. And he started it all with a tossed-off junk-store camera. Rock Cellar Magazine was honored to have Henry Diltz sit down and chat with us. Diltz’ memory is as sharp as his camera’s focus, and the breadth of his story-telling is as wide as the gargantuan “Wall of Slides” adorning his west-coast photo studio office. For a man whose medium is visual, Henry Diltz is a surprisingly…

Once in awhile, the sheer power of a musical project blows you away. It’s become somewhat of a rare occurrence given today’s mainstream music scene, but if you dig deep enough you’ll find something that rewards your determination. With that, we’d like to introduce you to Les Friction.  Pronounced “less friction.” Spawned out of the demise of E.S. Posthumus, this looks like it’s going to be a pretty special project. Don’t think you know E.S. Posthumus? Try this on for size: Not an NFL fan? What about Cold Case, do you watch that? The point is, E.S. Posthumus made some…

For fans of the animated comedy show Family Guy, one of the most endearing features is the way the creators integrate spot-on renditions of various musical genres from the past. Although there is probably no musical style that the show hasn’t parodied, their clever takes on jingles, Broadway shows, vaudeville, and Big Band are often as original and catchy as the source material itself.  The genre perhaps most lovingly recreated on Family Guy has got to be 1950s Swing Jazz – the era best exemplified by vocalist Frank Sinatra. It is no real surprise then that Family Guy creator and…

For those of you who are following the story of the stolen Rembrandt sketch “The Judgment” as closely as we are, there seem to be more questions than answers. Art world insiders and casual observers alike love a good art-heist, and are no doubt hoping for this story to explode into a sexy, cinematic blockbuster – The Ritz-Carlton Affair – with Robert Pattinson as a young Pierce Brosnan.  Truth is, with the introduction of a “brainy hot babe” we’re almost there. Rock Cellar Magazine has dug a little deeper to look at the different angles on this story, many of…
