Rush DVD, Dio and Iommi Together, Plexiglass Moog (the Horror), Bossa Disney Nova, Metal Doc, Mr. Show Bands

  • Rush is preparing to release Replay x3featuring 1982's Exit. . .Stage Left, 1985's Grace Under Pressure, and 1991's A Show of Hands. With all these DVD releases, I don't understand how the music industry could possibly be hurting. I wonder if they're lying.
  • Ronnie James Dio has gotten together with Tommy Iommi in secret to write a song for an upcoming Black Sabbath box set. Now I know the industry is lying.
  • Ever wanted to see an old Moog in plexiglass and learn all about the synths used in Apocalypse Now? Today is the best day of your life.
  • Boing Boing is in love with Bossa Disney Nova, a "Japanese CD of legendary Brazilian bossa nova artists performing groovy, loose interpretations of Disney classics." This gives me the opportunity to rave about the horn part in "Bossa Nova Baby." I like it.
  • Eggheads meet heavy metal in Metal: A Headbanger's Journey, which takes an "anthropological look at the genre by exploring its links with violence, sexuality and religion." They better talk about "Balls to the Walls."
  • Here's a nice collection of the best fake bands from Mr. Show. Y'all are brutalizing me.
