From one of my Sourced

The late Beatle's most revolutionary songs have been compiled into the soundtrack for the controversial documentary, The U.S. vs. John Lennon.

John Lennon's revolutionary songs like "Imagine," "Nobody Told Me," "Instant Karma (We All Shine On)," "Happy Xmas (War is Over)," and "Power to the People," have been compiled into the soundtrack to the upcoming feature-length documentary, The U.S. vs. John Lennon. Two previously unreleased tracks -- "Attica State," recorded live at 1971's John Sinclair freedom rally, and the film's instrumental version of "How Do You Sleep" -- will also be included on the soundtrack, which will be released on Sept. 26, just a few days before the film opens in wide release. "John sings: 'Nobody told me there'd be days like these.' That was his true confession," Yoko Ono said in a statement. "These songs have become relevant all over again. It's almost as if John wrote these songs for what we are going through now."

The U.S. vs. John Lennon focuses on Lennon's personal evolution from pop music icon to revolutionary and anti-war activist, and explores how the government assigned the FBI to monitor Lennon's activities. "Never in a million years, did we think that promoting world peace could be dangerous," Ono said. "Were we naive? Yes, on that account, we were."

Short Report aging woke up late agian.

Joining the ranks of artists like Madonna, Duran Duran, and Garbage, Chris Cornell will perform the theme song to the next James Bond film, Casino Royale, which stars Daniel Craig as the new Bond. With "You Know My Name," a collaboration with Bond composer David Arnold, Cornell becomes one of the few artists to both write and record a Bond theme -- Paul McCartney & Wings, Sheryl Crow, and Madonna are the others. The film arrives in theaters Nov. 17. "I've always loved Chris' work, both as a writer and as an artist, and had hoped someday to find the right film to inspire him," said Columbia Pictures' Lia Vollack, who heads the studio's worldwide music branch. "His music is both soulful and tough. It was the perfect complement to Daniel Craig and Casino Royale." British electronic mavens Goldfrapp had been rumored to be the next Bond songsmiths.


According to the group's label, Arts&Crafts, Do You Trust Your Friends, a "track for track interpretation" of Stars' last album, 2004's Set Yourself on Fire, featuring the interpretive skills of Broken Social Scene, Metric, the Dears, the Elected, and Junior Boys, among others, is due out in the fall.

And following the release of her country-tinged solo album Honey From the Tombs in May, Stars frontwoman Amy Millan is saddling up for a tour of her native Canada, making stops at the Hillside Festival in Guelph, Ontario and the Ottawa Folk Festival, as well as playing a New York show in October (her sole U.S. date at the moment).

At the moment, Stars only have two future shows scheduled: an appearance at Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 4 and one at the Austin City Limits festival in Austin, Texas on September 15.


loudQUIETloud, the Pixies reunion documentary that premiered earlier this year at South by Southwest's film festival, is now scheduled for a November 7 DVD release courtesy of MVD.

The film follows the band's reunion tour, unveiling the hardships of life on the road. Cry me an effing river.

As previously reported, another Pixies DVD, Pixies: Acoustic - Live in Newport, is also on its way. It will see release on Eagle Rock Entertainment come August 22.

45 Days untill
the Dally in the Alley

If your playing the Dally let me know so i can pass it on

Today post is short aging
Stay up all night last night so i am way, way off today so all the Story are cut and Copy with the Souced in ( )

Fox announced the latest batch of A-listers primed to lend their voices to yellow-faced, four-fingered doppelgangers for The Simpsons' 18th season, kicking off in September.

Natalie Portman,Kiefer Sutherland, the White Stripes, Michael Imperioli, Joe Pantoliano, Dr. Phil McGraw and Betty White are among the eclectic group of celebs set to guest star in the upcoming season. Jon Lovitz, Harry Hamlin and Monty Python's Eric Idle are also lending their pipes to the long-running 'toon.

The season premiere, titled "The Mook, the Chef, the Wife and His Homer," follows the same mob theme as last year's season opener, and again sees the return of Joe Mantegna as Springfield's resident Mafioso Fat Tony. When Fat Tony is shot and his son forsakes the family business to become a chef, henchmen Dante (Pantoliano) and Dante Jr. (Imperioli) promote Homer to godfather status--with predictably disastrous results.

The White Stripes drop by Springfield for an intimate gig in the second episode of the season, "Jazzy and the Pussycats." Bart ends up with a mangled drumming arm after a run-in with a stray tiger Lisa rescues from the pound. He organizes a benefit concert to raise money for his operation at which Jack and Meg White perform.

Dr. Phil puts his talent for scaring small children to use in the show's annual "Treehouse of Horror" episode, airing, per tradition, after Halloween on Nov. 5. The good doctor will be joined by the equally frightening Fran Drescher and ichard Lewis.

Fox gets some synergistic mileage on Nov. 12 when Jack Bauer's alter ego drops by. In "GI (Annoyed Grunt)," While Bart narrowly escapes enlistment in the Army when he turns 18, Homer isn't so lucky. He finds himself enrolled in basic training where his laziness and indifference rile up his hardcore colonel (Sutherland).

Details on story lines involving Portman, Idle and Betty White were not released, though the network said their episodes would run in the second half of the season.

Meanwhile, some literary rock stars are also set for visits. Tom Wolfe, Gore Vidal, Michael Chabon and Jonathan Franzen will make cameos.

Which means, come next year, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has got its work cut out.

A guest spot on The Simpsons could equal something for the trophy case. Just ask elsey Grammer, who has been tapped to receive the Emmy for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance Aug. 19 for reprising his role as the nefarious Sideshow Bob last season.

The series itself is the all-time animated Emmy champ, netting an impressive 22 trophies over its 17-year span.

The Simpsons' 18th season kicks off Sept. 10 on Fox.

(E1 On-line)

The troubled singer says he is recording a solo project for release this year, and plans to work on a second Babyshambles album.

Pete Doherty announced that he is working on a solo project, as well as a follow-up to the Babyshambles debut, 2005's Down in Albion. "There'll be a solo acoustic album released this year. It differs from Babyshambles because it will be just me," he told The album Doherty is currently working on is called The Implant Sessions, referencing the implant the singer talked about getting to suppress his substance abuse (read more). "I've just been talking about getting a cottage," he said. "Just a little pond and my guitar." A spokesperson for Doherty had no further information about Doherty's new projects.


Kristin Hersh has kept busy since her old band, Throwing Muses, broke up in 1997 and then reunited to record a second self-titled album in 2003. She is putting the finishing touches on the follow-up to her sixth solo album, The Grotto, (currently untitled and without a tracklist, but mentioned plenty, albeit mysteriously, on her official blog), and she has also stayed active with her post-Muses band 50 Foot Wave.

But it seems Hersh just can't keep those Muses away, as the band have scheduled precious few live dates in August, with support from 50 Foot Wave. Then, in September, 50 Foot Wave will open for Mission of Burma's West Coast tour.



Mat Brooke Leaves Band of Horses

Mat Brooke has fallen off Band of Horses, and it doesn't look as if he has plans to hop back on. The group's co-founder (along with fellow ex-Carissa's Wierd member Ben Bridwell) hasn't been touring with the band, although he played an integral part in the creation of Horses' debut album, Everything All the Time.

An official statement from the band reads, "Mat was originally in the band to help with songwriting, and that due to his other projects taking off, he is no longer in the band."

So for those who were wondering why Brooke didn't show for BoH's performance on the "Late Show With David Letterman", there you have it.

The rest of the Band will continue to gallop across America on tour over the next few months, including, of course, a stop at the Pitchfork Music Festival



The Gallagher brothers and co. have chosen 18 singles and B-sides for the upcoming compilation, Stop the Clocks.

Oasis have announced the upcoming release of the compilation album, Stop the Clocks, which will cull No. 1 singles and B-sides from the band's catalog. Set for a Nov. 21 release date, the set will feature singles like "Wonderwall" and "Supersonic," B-sides like "Acquiesce" and "Half the World Away," and more recent releases like "The Importance of Being Idle." The band, who hand-picked their favorite tracks for the album, will release Stop the Clocks during what their label calls "a well earned sabbatical prior to starting work on new material." The final track list for the compilation has not been released.

"30 rock" which look at life behind the scene of a SNL-type show, she will be the star in it and is also a Writer and executive producer of this half-hour show that will debut on Oct.11

she told Television Critics Association's summer meeting Saturday in LA, I'm out of the fake news business now", "I'm going to go nuts," she said Saturday. "I do not understand the train that is about to hit me. We're trying to get as much done in the writers' room now before we start and I tried to gather a staff of writers who are experienced so they can proceed when I'm on the set."

She also said on the tonight show on friday "This is the big leap I'm making, it's a show about working at a late-night comedy show", "I'm very creative."

and it you want to see a trailer for the show you can
click here we wish like to show it on from you tube but i am affied NBC will clam the copyright Infringment.

most people did not notice but i did on the season finaly off SNL on may 20th, when tina mention about Britney Spears getting haveing a second baby and it sort of match of what she prediced when she gave Biritney some advice so they pull a old clip from 2000 or 2001 wend she give her some advice on here futher.

also on that same weekend update on the season Finaly near the end they have a song near the end(i can remember off hand) and they interduce all the cather she wrote, which i thought was perfict.

Also near the end of the very same show when the cast join guest Kevin Spacey and musicial guest Nelly frttado, she wore a t-shirt that simply say "Thanks You", you must have know she was read to move on.

But she did leave some histroy with the show, she was name the first female head writer in the show 31 year histroy in 1999, then In 2000 she began to co-anchors the mid show news segment Weekend Update with then cast member Jimmy Fallon they did the segment so well for four season untill Fallon said it was his last show at the end of the 2003-04 season, she then co-anchor with the always wonderful to watch Amy Poehler(who also did the Upright Citizens Brigade on Comedy Central)it was the first time the weekend update was anchor by two women.

She did miss a one show after she gave brith to a baby girl back in 2005 , she leave the show as the Longest serving Weekend Update anchor with 118 show over 6 season, 7 show better than Dennis Miller (Longest serving male Weekend Update anchor) 111 shows over 6 season from 1985 to 1991.

Now the big question begin what will happen to weekend update will amy poheler do i alone or will she have someone else or will it be a diffent anchor of a diffend pair of co-anchor, Lorne Michaels, executive producer of "SNL" and "30 Rock" said in a statement that various individuals and duos would be tested in September to decide who will replace Fey on the "Weekend Update" segment before the new SNL season be gin in october.

or there that what if question: What if the show "30 rock" dont catch on fire and it became a dud: Conan O'Brien who host Late Night with Conan O'Brien. is scheduled to take over for Jay Leno as host of The Tonight Show in 2009, and 2009 is three years too far to name a replacement, but one of the many names that have been name as a replacement is Tina Fey.

But Tina Fey is not the only one that is leaving SNL it was also learn late saturday night that her cast mate Rachel Dratch is also leaveing the show because she also on "30 Rock" as well and she starting out on her movie carred she was in the movie "Click" this summer, and it countued a friendship that started at the second City at the e.t.c. theaher and they join the likes of dozen and dozen and dozen if i have time i would put every name on here but here a
link to there alum list
but some include Dan Aykroyd,John Candy,Gilda Radner,Mike Myers, and Stephen Colbert
and some of the famous alum for the detroit second city mostly the downtown venve (1993-2003)were Jerry C. Minor,Nancy Hayden,Joshua Funk,Nyima Funk,Rico Bruce Wade,Chad Krueger,Mary Jane Pories,Marc Warzecha,Jeff Fritz,Topher Owen,and my fave at the second downtown were
Larry Joe Campbell,Margaret Exner, Keegan-Michael Key,Marc Evan Jackson,Antoine McKay,Maribeth Monroe,and the late Eric Black.

Not only Pretty Funny ladies are leaving popuarl TV shows but Cool quite Swedish bands lose nice lead singer, That what have happen to the Lead singer of The Concretes after it was annouced the founding member Victoria Bergsman have left6 the band to lanch a solo career.

The band will continue playing together and are currently drafting songs for a new album. They performed without Bergsman at the Summercase Festival in Spain. They apologise to fans who were hoping to see them perform together.

Victoria Bergsman was an original member of the The Concretes, forming the band with Lisa Milberg (drums / vocals) and Maria Eriksson (guitar / vocals) in Stockholm in 1995. Since that time the band have released two albums, the eponymous debut from 2004 featuring the singles "You Can't Hurry Love", "Say Something New" and "Warm Night"; and this year's "In Colour".
