Coldplay just released a free live album as a thanks to their fans. I've uploaded all nine songs on our music player so you can listen to it and figure out if you want to download it. To see them live at the Staples Center in LA was one of my favorite memories. The album sure takes me back to that time...I love hearing the crowd roaring in the background...they are a… Continue
Here's another concept that I would love to see in production! Designed by Stephanie Bellanger and friends, the Mobile Mini House is a house on wheels!

For those of you who are worried about the weather, there's also a… Continue

Here's the thing. I like these photos posted on LiveCrunch. Many of them are interesting and cool. But the author of the article uses the "Amazing" moniker in the headline. Is anybody else growing weary and wary of this word?

Sure, we weren't shivering amongst millions who braved frigid temperatures to watch the inauguration live at Capitol Hill. In fact, in our t-shirts and jeans, we basked in the sweet California sunlight with a thousand other Angelenos today. One quick sweep of the crowd and… Continue
Looks like Kelly is back, to version 1.0 anyway. After going rogue during the making of her third album My December and breaking away from her turbulent relationship with the godfather of ballad pop, Clive Davis, Kelly Clarkson has apparently recommitted to playing it safe, so she can move out of her brother's couch.
Clarkson went all Evanescence in album #3, My December.
Rihanna, you can do no wrong. I can't wait for the 'Live Your Life' video debuting tonight on BET’s Access Granted @ 7:30pm ET/PT. I'll be sure to put it up just as soon as I can. Until then...these pictures..…
