FYF Fest 2012 Lineup Announced

Bands have been announced today for FYF Fest 2012 in Los Angeles.

Looks like a really fucking sweet line-up. I won’t be attending, barring lottery win or free tickets to LA.

Are you going? Do you wish you can go? Do you want to take me along, you bastards?

Rock ‘n’ Roll High School

I watched this again tonight with my daughter. Despite her questionable tastes in today’s pop music, she’s still a big fan of the Ramones.

The soundtrack to this film is just fucking fantastic: MC5, Brownsville Station, the Velvet Underground, and of course, the Ramones.

In fact, one of the highlights of this movie is the Ramones concert, which is a live set (pretty sure it’s actually live).

Word on the street once was that Bill S. Preston Esq. (Alex Winter) was writing a script for a remake for Howard Stern.

I’mma call bullshit on that. No Ramones, no Rock ‘n’ Roll High School. Fucking remakes.

Despite itself, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School is one of the greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll movies ever made.

Have you ever seen it? How do you feel about Rock ‘n’ Roll High School?

The Bear and the Maiden Fair

Fans of the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin should like this. Throughout the series, someone is always singing some ballad known as “The Bear and the Maiden Fair“. Fans of only Game of Thronesthe HBO adaptation of the series, won’t know it, because nobody has sung it yet.

Celtic Punk Band Irish Moutarde has “covered” the song, based on the never complete lyrics in the novels, and made it available as a free download through their webhole.

If you’re a fan of A Song of Ice and Fire, Game of Thrones, or Celtic Punk, you’ll enjoy it.
