A New Collection of Official, Authorized Prince GIFs!

Tech entrepreneur Anil Dash, podcaster, music historian, and advisor to the Obama White House’s Office of Digital Strategy, knows his way around Prince’s catalogue. Less than a year after the iconoclastic musician left the planet, Dash created a guide to help newbies and casual listeners become better acquainted with his oeuvre: The nice thing about Prince’s work is that there are no bad starting points; if you don’t like what you hear at first, he almost certainly made a song in the complete op...

GIPHY, in collaboration with Paisley Park and Prince’s estate, has done a truly remarkable thing. It’s created an official archive of high-quality Prince GIFs, from virtually all of his music videos. You can browse it by album and by song. The result is a veritable gold mine for both Prince fans and meme hunters.

Coachella festival memories: Roger Waters and the escape of the flying pig

In April, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will kick off its 20th year. As the festival gets closer, we’re revisiting some of our coverage over the years. (We’ve already posted photos from the very first Coachella, as well as all of the headlining performances from 1999-2009 and 2010-2018.)

The Voice of an Angel: A Tribute to Valerie Carter

None Although she sometimes balked at being the center of attention, the late Valerie Carter had a singing voice destined to thrust her into the glare of the spotlight, whether or not she sought it. Although other backing-vocalist powerhouses have, in recent years, garnered more attention (most notably via the 2013 documentary, 20 Feet From Stardom by which Carter was, inexplicably, ignored), Carter was the equal of legends like Merry Clayton when it came to demand for her talent.

Pop 2.0: how globalised music created a new kind of star

English is no longer the lingua franca of pop music, and its alpha stars – Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga – are an endangered speciesIn a recent episode of the New York Times Popcast, the paper’s critic, Jon Caramanica, recalled the week in August where K-pop seven-piece BTS and Puerto Rican star Ozuna’s respective albums debuted inside the US Top 10. “I remember looking at that and being, like, oh, this is it – this is the new pop order. This is not seven sub-genres ascendin...

Chantilly’s Private Princely Apartments Reopening

There are many things that make the Domaine de Chantilly unique (and, in my opinion, much more interesting to visit than Versailles). Its last resident was Henri d’Orléans, Duke d'Aumale, and son of the last King of France, Louis-Philippe. His family’s princely apartments, the only remaining examples from the Monarchie de Juillet in France, will be reopened this month after several years of careful renovations. The Duke and Duchesse d’Aumale’s Private Apartments were created in 1845 within ...

Facing inflation alone: Juan de Mariana and his struggle against monetary chaos

Facing inflation alone: Juan de Mariana and his struggle against monetary chaos Until September 8, 1609, Juan de Mariana did not appear to have been fully aware of just how risky it can be to participate publicly in an ideological debate, especially when one places the pillar of private property at the center of one’s political and economic theory. On that day a group of armed men headed by one Miguel de Múgica broke into the Jesuit monastery at Toledo and ...

10 strangest Super Bowl halftime moments: From Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction and Left Shark to, well, you’ll see

This is all Justin Timberlake’s fault, in more ways than one. If Timberlake had come out for the halftime show at Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis a year ago and slayed like Beyoncé always does, we might be reshuffling our annual list of the Top 10 Super Bowl halftime shows of all time. But dressed like he’d just run out to the Bass Pro Shop down the street for some quick camouflage gear, about the only thing J.T. looked like he could slay was a duck. So, given that nothing was going to dislodge Pr...

Coachella history: See photos of all the festival’s headliners from the first 10 years

Just months after the disaster of Woodstock ’99, a brand-new festival launched. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival started in October 1999 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio. And it lost money. But it paved the way for the rise of the mega festival in the United States. This year, Coachella will celebrate its 20th year with twin weekends April 12-14 and April 17-19, with headliners Childish Gambino, Tame Impala and Ariana Grande.

Prince’s Sliding Barrel Breechloading Rifle

Towards the end of last year I had the chance to look at unique early breechloader, an example of Frederic Prince’s breechloading percussion rifle dating from the 1850s. Prince’s rifle (no, not the gunsmith formerly known as…) used a sliding barrel action, with the barrel sliding forward when the action was unlocked, to open the […] Read More … The post Prince’s Sliding Barrel Breechloading Rifle appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

The trophy had barely been handed to Peter Frampton when the guitarist and singer announced at National Association of Music Merchants Show in Anaheim on Saturday night that instead of talking about his acclaimed career he wanted to talk about Les Paul, the man for whom this lifetime achievement award is named. “For a guitarist, for any serious musician, really, any association with Les Paul is a privilege and an honor,” Frampton told the audience of music industry professionals gathered for the...

NAMM 2019: Four who worked with Prince talk about what made him a legend

Morris Hayes was Prince’s musical director and New Power Generation keyboardist for years, but it took a little time to figure out the mercurial musical genius at first, he said Saturday during a panel at the NAMM Show on Prince and what made who and what he was. “I’ll put it to you like this,” Hayes said in response to a question about how Prince ran his rehearsals. “What I figured out was that there were five of them, five Princes. Rehearsal depends on which one showed up today. “The day befor...

How Kip Berman Gave Tom Petty's 'Full Moon Fever' the Pains of Being Pure at Heart Treatment

None With their dreamy guitars, exhilarating percussion, and infectious lyrics, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart have crafted one of the most memorable discographies in the indie scene. Since their debut in 2009, with their self-titled album which featured the anthemic "Young Adult Friction", they have consistently put out effortlessly great indie pop. In a way, their way of making music, and their fresh reliability, resembles Tom Petty's approach to creating. For decades Petty made music that ...

The 'most powerful man in politics,' demonized in this week’s dubious tabloids

If you roll up a copy of this week’s Globe tabloid into the shape of a seashell and hold it to your ear, you can hear the sound of President Trump screaming. Just because they’re packed with fact-challenged celebrity gossip doesn’t mean that the tabloids can’t give us insight into American politics. President Trump has long used the National Enquirer and Globe as mouthpieces for his thoughts, and this week it appears that trend continues. Just because Globe and National Enquirer chief David Pec...

This is the Noli

Paddlers, filmmakers, and local citizens team up to nominate the Nolichucky as a Wild & Scenic River. That the Nolichucky River is both wild and scenic seemed obvious enough on a brilliantly clear day last fall when I walked into its namesake gorge east of Poplar, N.C. The water level, which fluctuates widely in this dam-free stretch of the Nolichucky, was ideal for paddling, the water surging powerfully but remaining a clear, beer-bottle green in the channels between boulders. And though the l...

Princess Di’s killer, Burt Reynolds is a killer, and a killer milkshake, in this week’s dubious tabloids

It’s a fresh and shiny New Year filled with hope and possibilities, but the same ol’ exaggerations, fantasy and fact-challenged nonsense as ever proliferates in this week’s tawdry tabloids. And as ever, they dig deep into the past for "news" we’ve seen many times before. “This Man Killed Diana in Paris Tunnel!” screams the National Enquirer cover story about the death of a Princess, naming Parisian limo driver-bodybuilder Le Van Thanh. But Thanh was identified as the driver of a Fiat Uno that po...

Former Viewpoint basketball player Miye Oni emerging as first-round NBA prospect

NORTHRIDGE >> When it comes to evaluating basketball talent, nobody doubts the words of legendary Duke University coach Mike Krzyzewski. In fact, his words on Dec. 8 during a mid-game interview against Yale served as somewhat of a stamp of approval for standout Miye Oni. “…he will be a first-round pick,” Coach K said during Duke’s 91-58 rout of Yale. Oni had 12 points and nine rebounds against Duke that Saturday night at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Raleigh, N.C.. Since then, the Bulldogs (9-3) hav...
