REZNOR WATCH: Read About Nine Inch Nails’ Return While Streaming The New How to destroy angels_ EP

It was a sad day when Trent Reznor decided to retire Nine Inch Nails as a going concern. But Trent, retirement means you relax. Kick you feet up. Maybe stare wistfully at sunsets while sitting in a porch swing sipping Arnold Palmers and waiting for Kojack to come on. That’s what old people do right?

Reznor certainly hasn’t gone quietly into the night. He got hitched and started a band, How to destroy angels_, with his wife Mariqueen Maandig. He scored The Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo to great acclaim and he recently lent his talents to the soundtrack for Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2. But it looks like Reznor has a certain itch that only a nine inch nail could scratch.

Justin Bieber, Rihanna , Bruno Mars Perform On Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Victoria’s Secret kicked off their annual holiday fashion show this past Wednesday, Nov. 7, to a crowd of dedicated New Yorkers, braving the elements to catch a peak at the latest fashions and musical performances by Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber.

Enjoying himself probably a little too much, Bieber soaked in the eye candy, while singing a stripped down version of “Beauty and the Beat” along with “As Long As You Love Me.” Rihanna shared her latest, “Diamonds” along with “Fresh Out the Runway,” while Bruno Mars performed “Locked Out of Heaven” and “Young Girls.”

Though Bieber initially seemed an odd choice for the event, he was quoted as saying,“It’s like a dream come true. I would rather be here than anywhere in the world.”

We can tell, Bieber. We can tell.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs Dec. 4 on CBS.

Comparing Crowdfunding; Why Kickstarter Isn’t Your Best Option

The concept of the struggling artist is nothing new and in fact, it’s more prominent today than ever before. Playing frequent shows, selling merch and making quality music aren’t always enough to pay the bills these days. Often times, you may find yourself aching to create a new album, some new music videos, or invest in better equipment. But without the cash, what’s a struggling band to do?

Enter: crowdfunding. Most are familiar with the crowd-funding platform Kickstarter. However, Kickstarter isn’t your only option and in fact, not always your best.

Did you know that Kickstarter only accepts 60% of applications and only has a 44% success rate? Read on after the jump for our comparison of three of the top crowd funding sites: Kickstarter, IndieGoGo and Crowdtilt. Continue reading ‘Comparing Crowdfunding; Why Kickstarter Isn’t Your Best Option’

Exclusive Q and A: The Maine Talk Moms, Cover Songs, and Reputations

The Maine have progressed far beyond their days as a fledgling pop-punk band trying to stand out in a sea of sound-alikes. Since releasing their third full-length album Pioneer in 2011, the band has cemented a reputation for being willing to take creative risks and experiment in ways that musically diverge from their past releases. Now, The Maine is releasing a DVD that follows them through the process of writing and recording their genre-breaking third studio album. We caught up with frontman John O’Callaghan to talk band reputations, maternal approval, and the secret advice for recording a live show.

OS: Your new DVD is just about to come out, and I understand that it details a lot of the struggles you had surrounding the release of Pioneer. Was there any footage that you were afraid of including in the documentary?

JO: I guess that there shouldn’t be. I don’t think you should ever try to censor yourself after the fact. There are certain things that were just a little too heavy, or too overloaded with swear words that might not add anything to the documentary, but occurrences like that were very rare. We tried to put as much of that stuff in there as we could because we were fortunate to have a camera rolling through pretty much the entire process. I think that people deserve to hear that stuff. Hopefully it’s a better indication of who we are as people and what we had to go through to make it happen. Continue reading ‘Exclusive Q and A: The Maine Talk Moms, Cover Songs, and Reputations’
