Jeannie Mai Rumored to Be Pregnant With Jeezy’s Baby After Previously Stating She Never Wanted Children

Things seem to be getting really serious between talk show host Jeannie Mai and rapper Jeezy. So serious, that word on street is that they may be expecting a baby together. According to reports earlier this week, there is speculation on The Real set that Mai is pregnant. The production source says they have suddenly been told to shoot Mai from different angles than usual. “We’ve been told to shoot Jeannie from the side to make her look slimmer. Jeannie is already a tiny girl, so there’s really n...

Art and Technics (vi)

"...until recently we have taken for granted that, since we ourselves live in a Machine Age and boast of that fact, every other age was correspondingly dominated and influenced by its tools and technical devices. Despite our own devaluation of symbolism we had nevertheless made the Machine the symbol of life itself, and transferred our own obsession with that particular idol to every other phase of human history." (38-39)"One has only to compare the cave paintings of the Aurignacian hunters with...

What Classical Music Needs To Do About Climate Change

Welcome work by the Tyndall Centre for Climate Research examines all the areas of impact touring has on the environment and recognises that the issue is complex: it cannot be solved by planting a set number of trees per tour. From audiences travelling to concerts to the power required by the halls, this crisis is the responsibility of all of us. Everyone must be conscious of their behaviour and acknowledge the active part they have to play. Planning permission for all new concert halls,...

Popular With Us 2019: Buzz Bands LA’s Favorite 101 Songs of the Year

One thing you can say about the 2019 edition of Buzz Bands LA’s Favorite 101 Songs of the Year: There’s a lot more where these came from. As is our habit this time of year, we began with a folder of more than 250 songs — most of which we wrote about on this site and/or played on our radio shows — and whittled it down to six hours of music that reps the L.A. independent scene we try to cover. The playlist is arranged in reverse order, from song No. 101 to No. 1. So count it down. Spread it around...

BENEE’s surreal new single, “Blu,” arrives with a music video wherein she (aka Stella Bennett) puts on a performance aimed at unsettling its sole attendee (and all those watching on a screen). The lyrics suggest this lonely guest, who’s eventually held hostage and forced to watch a video of himself on stage, is an ex—specifically one that was unaware of how awful they’d treated her. …

Jade River & Ariano – “Fear Is a Liar (Rockets)”

Fresh off dropping their sophomore effort, “A Child Trapped in Poems”, SoCal hip hop icon Ariano and Portland producer Jade River bring the heat one more time with the third installment of their collaborative efforts, “Fear is a Liar (Rockets)“. While Ariano and Jade stuck to purer hip hop stylings of trap and boom bap on their previous two albums, Fear is a Liar is far more rock-driven. From Jade’s bass-heavy production, to Ariano singing his hooks as much as he raps, Fear is a Liar is indispu...

Alleged Nude Photos of Steph Curry Leak Online Months After Wife Ayesha Expressed Concern It Would Happen

Yesterday it was A$AP Rocky and today it’s Steph Curry.

In Japan, the promise of unique, more organic audiovisual aesthetics

At last week’s festival in Tokyo, amidst familiar touring works, you could spot a subplot – returning to color and fluid expression in live AV sets. Tokyo is a perfect setting for new visual performance and visual music. It’s a town that has a long history of setting world standards for visual immersion in electronic music. Accordingly, it also birthed major VJ tech – some that caught on, some that didn’t. (Think the ground-breaking Motion Dive software, Edirol video mixers, KORG’s K...

Video: L.A. Takedown, ‘The Swimmer’

Whoever avoided the sciences because they had more artistic inclinations should perhaps take a cue from L.A. Takedown’s mastermind Aaron Olson and his father, Arthur J. Olson, who, in 1981 produced a short film with fellow chemist T.J. O’Donnell (edited by Matt Hewitt) called “Tomato Bushy Stunt Virus.” At the intersection of math, design, programming, chemistry and biology, Olson senior used the publicly-funded GRAMPS graphic language to interpret what CLAMPS (a Classical Many Particle Simulato...
