Feb. 10: Weekly entertainment round-up

Well I already covered the garbage that super bowl officials called a half-time show on Monday and on Wednesday I wrote about the upcoming bummy Grammys.

* If the Black Eyed Peas and Christina Aguilera didn’t annoy the hell out of you enough on Sunday, in theaters tomorrow is Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never, which is some sort of movie, I guess.

Hey Bieber, don’t tell me to never say never because I am Never going to see your movie. Never.

* Some upcoming music release dates have been confirmed in the past week:
The Foo Fighters will release their currently untitled seventh studio album on April 12; That same day, Atmosphere will release, Family Sign, which will be the duo’s sixth album; Silverstein will release their fifth album, Rescue, on April 26; Royce Da 5’9” will release his fifth solo album, Success is Certain, on April 26 and Manchester Orchestra will release their third album, Simple Math, on May 10. There are plenty of releases that are coming out before then that I’m excited for as well including albums from Bright Eyes (2-15), Bayside (2-22), Lupe Fiasco (3-8), Yellowcard (3-22), Panic! at the Disco (3-29), Sum 41 (3-29) and Thursday (4-12).

* Music videos, remember those?

Two decent ones were released in the last week.

The first is from Nas and Damian Marley, which is “Patience,” released Monday from last year’s Distant Relatives album. It can be seen here.

The second is “The Ballad of Mona Lisa” from Panic! at the Disco, which is their first single off of Vices and Virtues, due out March 29.

K. Bye.
