If you're like me, you've probably already caught a stream of METALLICA's recent, record-breaking performance in Antarctica via one of the unofficial uploads that surfaced earlier this month. If not, or if you want to see it in proper HD (I'm listening to it as I type this), the band has uploaded the full performance to their official channel, offering fans a chance to check out the December 8th performance in all of it's glory. Check it out below...

I'm not a big fan of fun., but my wife is, so I just snagged the new live EP that the band is offering as a FREE DOWNLOAD via Noisetrade. Before Shane Went to Bankok: FUN. Live in the USA features six songs recorded live during the MOST NIGHTS Tour, one of which is a previously-unreleased non-album track. Get the download via the widget below...

I remember the early days of the Snocore Tour (bands like SYSTEM OF A DOWN, MR. BUNGLE, and THE AQUABATS rockin' the stage), though in recent years it sorta dropped off my radar, even going completely AWOL for the past two. Now, after it's short hiatus, Wind-Up Records and TKO are bringing it back as a celebration of music and winter sports. Headlining this year are the THE PRETTY RECKLESS with HEAVEN'S BASEMENT, THE LETTER BLACK, and CROBOT in support. On each date of the tour, one local artist will be chosen to play from ReverbNation. Full details from the official announcement below...

Back in 2004, I saw Bill Cosby perform live at the grand reopening of the Genesee Theatre in Waukegan, Illinois. In the nearly-decade since, Cosby has returned to the area a few times, and as the title of his recent special shows, he's "Far From Finished." Now, the folks at Comedy Central have teamed up with The Rock Father for a special "For Grownups" giveaway, and we're going to get two (2) lucky readers hooked-up with copies on DVD, and two (2) additional readers outfitted with the new Blu-ray release! Check out the details and get those entries in below!

125simpsonsIt's sometimes weird to think that THE SIMPSONS has been on the air in first-run episodes for 25 Seasons already. A quarter-century since the show first aired (I taped the very first episode on VHS from a UHF broadcast via WFLD Channel 32 in Chicago), it seems like THE SIMPSONS have always been there, and will never go away. Watching the new Blu-ray release of THE SIMPSONS: THE SIXTEENTH SEASON (courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment), it was an experience to see these nearly decade-old episodes (it's the 2004-2005 season) looking brand-new, and actually... some of them were new to me.
