Watch Jason Isbell & Dr. Fauci Talk COVID Vaccine And Concert Safety

A few weeks ago, Isbell went on CNN to discuss the pandemic and he’s been cancelling appearances at venues and festivals that haven’t been able to comply.

Oh Shit, Look At Idris Elba Rapping

Over the years, the way-too-handsome movie star Idris Elba has had a bunch of side hustles in music. He DJs in Ibiza whenever he can, he co-produced the intro track from Jay-Z’s American Gangster album, and every once in a while, he raps. (I liked him on the remix to Skepta’s “Shutdown.”) In a couple of weeks, the grime site GRM Daily will stage its virtual Rated Awards ceremony, and Elba will co-host with the model Jourdan Dunn. In the lead-up to the big event, Idris Elba is out here rapping. ...

Charli XCX – “Good Ones”

Charli XCX is back with big “Sweet Dreams” energy and even bigger hair. Charli’s been teasing her new single “Good Ones” for weeks now, and today it’s finally here in all its blocky-synth glory. At just over two minutes, the song is short and sweet, merging those ’80s new wave and synthpop touchstones with more of a Y2K-era pop sensibility. “I let the good ones go,” Charli breathily laments. Listen to the song below and, from 2PM ET onward, watch its music video by Hannah Lux Davis.

ABBA Announce Reunion Album Voyage & Share Two New Songs, Their First In 39 Years

"What Happens When We Die?" is an extremely creepy childrens' audiobook from 1964

I feel sorry for any child that was forced to listen to this eerie audiobook about what happens when people die. I also wonder if the narrator was high on drugs. As gospel music plays in the background, he compares watching someone die to watching a ship slowly disappear into the distance as it fades away into a speck, and then to heaven's shore. — Read the rest
