10 Times Zoe Kravitz and Lisa Bonet Took Twinning to a Whole New Level

In Hulu’s streaming series reboot of High Fidelity, actor and musician Zoe Kravitz stars as record store owner and music nerd Rob, in a gender-flipped revision of John Cusack’s role from the original 2000 film. Kravitz’s casting holds a special significance since her mother, the actor Lisa Bonet, co-starred in the original film as Cusack’s intriguing and Peter Frampton-crooning love interest, musician Marie De Salle. While Kravitz and Bonet are playing vastly different roles, there’s no den...

Peter Frampton Reveals Degenerative Disease Diagnosis Ahead of Farewell Tour

Lucille Ball Demos a Precursor to Peter Frampton’s “Talk Box” (1939)

Decades before Peter Frampton made the Talk Box come alive on songs like "Do You Feel Like We Do" and "Show Me the Way," another legend, Lucille Ball, experimented with its forerunner, the Sonovox. Invented by Gilbert Wright in 1939, the Sonovox "used speakers pressed into [a performer's] throat to produce mechanical talking sounds." And the sounds could then be modulated by the tongue and lips.  Above, in a 1939 newsreel clip called "Machine Made Voices!," Ball puts the Sonovox on displ...

Watch Lucille Ball demo a 1939 ancestor of the "talk box" famously used by Peter Frampton

In this 1939 newsreel, the great Lucille Ball demonstrates the Sonovox, a device that brings amplified sound effects from vinyl records into the throat where the tongue and lips modulate it. Here's the patent for the Sonovox, invented by Gilbert Wright and used in TV advertisements, the movie Dumbo (1941) for Casey Junior the train's voice, and the "days of the week" radio jingle that was included on The Who Sell Out (1967). Of course the Sonovox begat the "talk box" that routes an amplified i...

Okilly Dokilly, a ‘Simpsons’-inspired metal band, come to Southern diddly California for three doodly shows

It started as a joke. The idea that what the world needed – more than another earnest indie rock band, another braggadocious rapper, another faceless EDM producer DJ – was Okilly Dokilly, a death metal band inspired by Ned Flanders, the Simpsons’ do-gooder sweater-and-polo-wearing neighborino. “We were joking around imagining a scenario where a band comes on stage with fire and effects, and it’s just the heaviest show intro for a metal-ocalypse,” said Head Ned, the lead singer and founder who – ...

Pete Drake's beautiful pedal steel "talk box" tune from 1963, long before Peter Frampton showed us the way

In the early 1960s, pedal steel guitar virtuoso Pete Drake (1932-1988) played his instrument through a talk box to record a fresh cover of the song "Forever." A talk box essentially routes an amplified instrument's sound from a small speaker into the musician's mouth via a rubber tube so they can shape the tone as if they're speaking. (Of course in the rock arena, Peter Frampton made the talk box famous a decade later on tracks like "Do You Feel Like We Do.") Interestingly, the talk box conc...

The biggest event in all 50 states

Every state has that one event that everyone either looks forward to or gets the hell out of town for — that festival, parade, or sporting event that draws people from all over the world and is a great time if you go but an even better time to leave and rent out your house. For travelers though, these events are some of the best ways to experience a city. Some of them are household names, stuff like Burning Man or the Kentucky Derby or New Year’s Eve in NYC. But even the big events in smaller...
